This is actually really fascinating in terms of the influences and different kinds of songwriting there are at the core of most of these songs. Also, you can definitely hear the Gallaghers riffing on this heavily throughout Oasis's career.

This is an interesting and enjoyable album - hasn't quite landed as being great for me but rather a really good album. It has a real 60's sound with Van Morrison and the Kinks coming out for me. Even the production has that low-budget 60's sound - not in any bad way, it gives the album an authentic feel.

Simple tunes capped off with the explosive "Looking Glass." Fantastic album!

Maybe it's just me, but There she goes doesn't fit in with the rest of the album.

During most of my four years of college, I worked in a record store. (In truth, by that time we were selling mostly CDs and cassettes, though we did carry some vinyl.) This album, perhaps more than any other, got constant attention from us employees--it's just so immediately likeable, so filled with hooks, so bouncy. "There She Goes" is the song everyone knows, but I invite you to check out "Liberty Ship," as well.
