 Oasis - Rank the albums
« Aug 7, 2019 9:46:15 GMT »

This has probably been done to death over the years and different incarnations on The Soapbox.  But, I'm on a huge Oasis binge at the moment, something that happens every couple of years or so.  And also, from the people still active on here, I don't really know where you stand on the Oasis albums. 

Right now, I've got Be Here Now deafening me, and I have to say, it sounds absolutely magnificent.  I know it's bloated and badly mixed but right now that's not something that bothers me.  Even Magic Pie sounds good to me today so I'm either under the influence of something or I've got brain damage.

Anyway, Be Here Now isn't my favourite Oasis album and I decided that I'd like to rank all of the albums, favourite to least favourite.  And yes, I'm including The Masterplan even if it is a b-sides album.  So here we go:

1. Definitely Maybe
2. Standing On The Shoulder of Giants
3. The Masterplan
4. Be Here Now
5. What's The Story (Morning Glory)
6. Dig Out Your Soul
7. Don't Believe The Truth
8. Heathen Chemistry

Come on, have a go.

For me it's:

1. Be Here Now
2. What's The Story (Morning Glory)?
3. Definitely Maybe
4. SOTSOG
5. Don't believe the truth
6. Dig out your soul
7. Heathen Chemistry

I don't count The Masterplan, but if I had to I think it might just pip DM.

When we all rated the songs, WTS(MG)? came out on top:

Definitely the case with the last 4 I thought they got worse with every record. The first 4 I love and it's hard to seperate them.

morning glory
dm
the masterplan
be here now
sotsog
dbtt
hc
doys

notes:
sotsog and be here now regularly swap positions for me
dbtt is ruined by liams vocals and the the terrible shit lo-fi production or whatever the fuck you call it, the album sounds and feels like stale bread, the fuck kind of band releases demos that are actually of a higher quality ?
hc contains some big big songs and some truly awful songs
doys is pretty much terrible throughout

It would appear I'm the only person that rates Dig Out Your Soul. I don't know why I love it but I do. To Be Where There's Life, for me anyway is one of my favourite Oasis tunes ever.

I quite honestly don't think there is a bad track on it.

Interesting take. Liam shines on the album, but High Horse is the worst thing Oasis ever released; drags the album down a few marks. Then there's the Andy Bell track which is dire. Too many of the Noel-written songs are no more that solid filler IMO.

It's all about opinions of course but High Horse has nothing on The Importance Of Being Idle or Mucky Fingers or Little By Little in terms of awfulness.

I also like DOYS quite a bit. The only absolute stinker on it The Nature of Reality. I don't mind High Horse but it is perhaps a little too long. I'm also not a fan of Noel signing 2 songs back to back.

DOYS is quite fine for me but the second half is the worst side of any Oasis record, even if I don't think any of those songs is terrible.

Importance of being Idle is one of the stronger later singles IMO, I didn't think any Oasis fan would not at least like it. Mucky Fingers for me gets points for at least having partway interesting lyrics. LBL gets by on being a live hit; it goes off due to it's massive singalong chorus even though it's Oasis by numbers, and musically and lyrically nothing special. High Horse is literally painful to my ears. Way too long. Goes nowhere. The Banhart remix is an improvement but that's not saying much.

Kinell, I just agreed with every word of a Lino post.

On the doorstep [Siouxsie] asks me whether right or left would be the best direction to find a taxi, and although her best bet would be left, I suggest she turns right. It is churlish of me, but it is she who has set the pace.
