@ Vatsal, in Blur's defense, 13 comes pretty damn close.

As a bit of a Blur fan it doesn't pain me to say it, but goddamn it Morning Glory is nothing more than a massive bottom burp of a record, the equivalent of a shell-suited townie stumbling drunk and pissed up on booze out of a dive bar in a West End town, then throwing up all over the Queen's corgis. In '95 the whole of Britain knew every word. Naturally we were all hammered at the time and didn't realise how feckin' awful this record was. My illiterate hamster could have written better lyrics. Thankfully it spelt the start of the end of Britpop, for which I'm eternally grateful, but as an artistic statement it's like a kid's art project that Mum did at the last minute whilst trying to simultaneously cook the tea and deflea the dog. Never Mind The Bollocks - here's 12 tracks of balls.

As a huge Blur fan, it pains me to say it, but goddamn it Morning Glory is better than every Blur album.

Most definitely not overrated. The best "arena rock" album ever made, in the most literal sense of the term.

I dismissed them as a beatles ripoff after hearing wonderwall, don't look back in anger, and champagne supernova, but those are great songs and it probably only reminds me of the beatles b/c of the vocals anyway. of course, they don't have the experimental side or half the diversity of a great beatles record, but it'd be unfair to hold them to a standard that no one reaches. they still utilize piano and violins to great effect and have keen sense of what makes a perfect pop rock song so it's not like they have absolutely no right to try to take on the beatles' sound.

if you're going to do a lennon/mccartney impression the entire time you're performing, constantly reminding ppl of arguably the greatest band ever and inviting direct comparison like that, then well, more power to you, I say. that's probably the most confident thing you could do on a record actually. and even if it's just beatles-style pop and nothing more, that's really all I'm asking for sometimes. I was surprised by the supposed filler, not only for its quality but its genuine spirit that's reminiscent of 60's music in general, not singularly the beatles. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the band strictly listens to 60's.

I heard bad things about the vinyl mix but I liked it just fine. the instruments might all be mixed at the same volume or w/e, in such a way that they sort of bleed into each other and make it harder to follow what any instrument is doing individually, but it's still possible to tune into any one aspect if you focus. it's better than completely burying the bass guitar or one of the other guitars at least but the band's sound would admittedly probably be better suited to a more sophisticated producer.

hopefully we'll always get more great 60's style music like this. can't really say that I want more and rate it lower than 100.

The three big hits and the opening track are good, the rest is filler.

There's a reason this has become so iconic and meaningful. Favorites are Some Might Say and, of course, Wonderwall

I've never been an Oasis fan. I found their music derivative and corny and I never warmed to them as people either. This was obviously a ridiculously successful album and there are some good songs here. Don't look back in anger, some might say, and the title track are great nineties anthems. I've never really liked, wonderwall, I think it's a dreary drip of a song, and, roll with it, sounds like Slade and Status quo together. There are a couple of completely forgettable tracks here, but the rest is fine, I suppose. I can't deny the power of the album, and I can't criticise some of the songwriting, it's just that Oasis were so regressive and unoriginal, while bands like Blur, Pulp, and of course Radiohead were pushing music forward and Oasis were just dragging it back. Still, a fairly enjoyable album.

Overrated, Wonderwall is great, and Don't Look Back in Anger is fantastic, but too many filler or just mediocre tracks.
