Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 81.1/100, a mean average of 79.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 81.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.4.

Most of the songs here have nice, catchy melodies and quite good lyrics. Overall this album delivers what it should. Of course I love Don't Look Back In Anger, but Some Might Say and Morning Glory are true hidden gems here.

See enough online discussions about Oasis, and you'll find that certain criticisms get repeated every time, without fail:

"Their instrumental skills are utterly rudimentary, rarely venturing beyond pentatonic scales. Their lead singer is a neanderthalic thug with annoying vocal affectations like 'sheeeeeiiiine', and their fans are just as moronic. They steal everything and don't have a single new musical idea of their own. They world's most successful Beatles/Slade tribute band. They were one of the biggest instigators of the Loudness War. Their songwriting consists of Moon/June rhymes and the same few clichéd themes (the weather, leaving the city, songwriting itself). They revel in their anti-intellectualism. Early-'90s British indie music was getting along quite promisingly until they came along and overwhelmed it. They were the prime example of how the entirety of the Britpop movement was inherently creatively bankrupt due to how backwards-looking it was. They never changed and basically kept releasing the same album over and over again. 'Slowly walking down the hall, faster than a cannonball' is one of the worst lyrics ever written.

"Overall, Oasis' music is derivative, repetitive, unambitious, inane, generally backwards-looking and Pulp were better anyway."

Yes, I admit it's hard to argue against almost any of those complaints...

... but I love this album anyway. (Though not quite as much as Definitely Maybe.)

A solid record with a lot of decent songs and a few that go beyond that and have become an important part of British culture. The huge examples of this are Wonderwall and Don't Look Back In Anger which concludes a strong run of 4 tracks that open the record. This high energy start is perfect for the group as it instantly captures the listeners attention and people have been hooked ever since. Some of their hooks aren't great but when they gets them right they are fantastic with tracks 3 and 4 being the perfect demonstrations of this. After this we get quite a stagnant and slow middle section of the album which unfortunately goes all the way up until the last song. There is a few glimpses of quality such as She's Electric and Morning Glory which is fun to listen to but nothing elite. Then we are treated to an absolute masterpiece of a conclusion which is amongst my favourite ever Oasis songs. It is just so infectious and the chorus is simply phenomenal. Overall, this record is over rated due to the bookends of the album being so great but it is still a very important release and is thoroughly enjoyable to experience.

Definitely Maybe was good but this was better imo, rightly considered a classic and Oasis's best album

There's no denying this as an era-defining release, replete with anthems for a generation. Whatever you think of Noel Gallagher, the guy can write a tune. Delivered with style by Liam along with some serious guitar riffage. The power of this album shouldn't be understated. Brilliant!

Simply brilliant. Era defining in a way that offers nostalgia to those that weren't even around. It is inter-generational fantastic songwriting.

Not the biggest fan of this guy, though Liam is hillarious, but Dont Look back in Anger is superb.

Great album, positive, heartfelt and extrovert. Oasis really captured a vibe no one else had at the time and no one's really ever had since.
