Biography

“In 20 years’ time, people will buy Definitely Maybe and listen to it for what it was. That’s what is important.” Noel Gallagher, August 1994.

Remarkably confident words from a guitarist on the eve of his band’s debut album release. But Oasis were always certain in their abilities – and the public were just as clear the five-piece were on the right ... Read more in Amazon's Oasis Store

I bought this single and I was very anxious to have it. Now that I do have it, I am very pleased with it. It's the best single I have ever heard! The Fame, Street Fighting Man, Flashbax and of course All Around the World are really good tunes, of the kind that you'll find yourself whistling them at every moment!

One can only question how a mere mortal can possess such great amounts of musical talents. The man in question is Noel Gallagher, songwriter for Oasis.
Third single off their fantastic third album "Be Here Now", "All Around The World" is truly a musical epic. The length of the single fits the epic word in every sense, as it covers 9 minutes plus of time. But the heights that AATW covers expands the meaning of epic.
From the quiet and gentle strumming of the guitar to the phenomenal heights it reaches with the crashes of guitar, drums, blinding vocals and strings, AATW is such an aural attack on the senses that one can only whimper in pure ectasy.
It's anthemic feel and all it gives leaves it's opposition dead. It's string sections leaves "Bitter Sweet Symphony" sounding like a school orchestra, it's triumphant feel gives any self help guide sounding pessimistic. It cries of hope, of joy, of fun, of OASIS!
Taken off the shine off this song is the constant Beatles comparison. This is not the case. It possess the same feel, but it takes it to another level, it is purely Oasis, not the Beatles.
Pure and simple, this song is tops. The most perfect effort that Oasis has offered so far. In fact, I'll take it to another step to say this is the song they play in heaven! I know, since I have had my breathe taken away by this song, dying, and reaching Pearly Gates...

Amazing! How do these guys do it. Three great albums (plus the b-sides album 'the masterplan' which is one of the best pieces of music ever), and 14 great singles. This is possibly the best in terms of a-side and b-side content. Street fighting man is a classic song and this is a fine cover but 'the fame' and 'flashbax' are easily worthy of being a-sides. I just hope 'standing on the shoulders of giants' is as good. Oasis- the greatest band ever!

The most ludicrously overproduced single of the 90s is also one of the best. In the hands of anyone but the brothers Gallagher it would have been turned to treacly schlock, but All Around the World is triumphant, glorious, and powerful. The B-sides - none of which appear on The Masterplan - are also excellent, especially the soaring The Fame. The cover of Street Fighting Man is also a highlight.

This song is a work of art. The group of oasis are fantastic artist with Noel's song writing genious how can a song fail? This is the type of song that will make you want to wait in the parking lot of the place your going to let it finish, even if you just started it!(I do that all the time.)
