I listened to 3 Oasis CDs and just could not get into any of them. To me, any Beatle similarity, let alone a comparison, was a major stretch.
I'm not necessarily knocking 'em----to each his own, and to each generation their own.
My picks for direct Beatle influences are Crowded House/Neil Finn and Michael Penn. I've got all their releases and that's exactly why I buy them. XTC have turned out solid tunes close to Beatle caliber too, for my money.
