From garycottier 07/04/2016 16:44
The most overhyped album in the history of music. It falls down under the weight of it's own hubris. It's ridiculously obvious that by now the Gallagher brothers believed in their own 'importance', and reckoned they could get away with it again and again. It's also obvious Noel had by now recorded all his best songs that he had stockpiled and now had to start again from scratch. The results are awful. There's nothing brilliant here, and some songs such as, all around the world, are terrible, spinal tap meets the rutles. The rest is equally terrible and forgettable. This is the kind of music that happens when success goes to the head.

Not as strong as the first two Oasis albums but still pretty good. All around the World, Stand by Me, The Girl in the Dirty Shirt. Oh yes.

Overblown, cocaine fueled and no quality control, this is a bit of a mess, but it's a lot of fun

rnmusic1983 OK Computer came out the same year and that album made Radiohead far better than Oasis.

no modern day band has been as big as what oasis were when this album came out , still the only album ive ever waited for the shop to open the day it came out , never lived up to the hype unfortunately but oasis were massive at this time , i remember MTV playing do you know what i mean ? 3 times in a row when it first came out , still has some great songs on it

Very good britpop album. Best 10 songs average is 90,5/100 and the album can get very good 90/100. Continuously strong album, but not as good as their previous superhit-album "(What's the story)...". However, best and full scoring song is "Stand by me". Followed by "D'you know what I mean?" and "All around the world" both 95/100. All other songs good 80-85/100.

This is my least favorite from them, some of these tracks should have been thrown out like Fade In-Out or the reprise of All Around the World (this track felt completely unnecessary) and some are better off cut down. But there are some good tracks like Stand By Me and Don't Go Away (In fact the former is one of my most favorite Oasis tracks) but other than that, I don't like this one very much.

Not the greatest of albums, but is not as bad as people say. 'Stand By Me' and 'All Around The World' are brilliant songs.
