The opening lick on Dont Go Away is one of my faves of all time. Classic stuff. If that's a lie, bring me more! I think they are on the downslide, but you can't deny their 2nd and 3rd albums as near pop masterpieces.

No you can't deny it but how can you leave out their first ????

Definitely Maybe is the ticket.

A few good tunes, but it doesn't do it for me like the 2nd and 3rd offerings.

you had to be in the uk at the time of 'defo maybe' - they dont have the same impact anymore and should have split ages ago . theyve been going down since liam started writing crud lyrics like 'live for your toys even tho they make noise ' - my nan could write better [:D]

Id say only Whats the story? with its morning glory...Definitely Maybe is one of the most boring albums ever, each song lasts 1 minute al least til it begins, my god, what a drag! and Be here now is awful, only a couple of good songs
If you pay attention their biggest hits like Dont look back...Wonderwal, etc are very basic music. It´s nice and well done, true, but talking in terms of BIG quality Oasis is a lie for me.

very basic???

ur kidding aren't u?

How can u say that when some of Paul's best songs end up being basic chords?

The reason I think alot of Beatle fans don't like Oasis is that in rock'n'roll there's a generation that came before and there's a generation always going to come after. The previous generation always resents the current generation. That's why you get alot of people like Paul , George, Keef etc.. slagging Oasis as Liam and Noel are bowing at their feet.

If you remove the competitiveness you'll find that they're a decent band.

oasis never set out to be a great new innovative band - noel takes it as a compliment that they have been accused of ripping off the beatles sound. the quality of their 1994/5 music was excellent - my fav oasis tracks are all b-sides 'half the world away' , 'step out' etc and thats why they are held in high esteem .

Oasis sucks. They have no spirit, no positive attitude, no real ballads etc. I don't know why people keep associating them with the beatles. Is it because they're from northern england and comb their hair forward? I went to see them in 1999 and I was very disappointed--especially with their lack of spirit (Liam esp.), it's as if they didn't even want to be there. no positive attitude at all. They are nothing like the beatles. I find it insulting to hear these two bands spoken in the same sentence.
