Product Description

OASIS DEFINITELY MAYBE

Amazon.com

With the swaggering chords of the opening "Rock'N'Roll Star," Oasis announced that big, brash Brit rock was here to stay--at least for a few years. They wore their rock & roll with an angry young sneer, a Mancunian petulance wedded to a vision of cathartic release. Their supersonic two-guitar attack took them "Up in the Sky," where they would "Live Forever" or burn out in a blaze of alcoholic glory. Noel Gallagher's songs weren't subtle--or shy of overt plagiarism--but, spat out in the Lennonesque snarl of little brother Liam, they took on a venomous power that had millions of young Brits taking them at their own arrogant word. In the U.S., meanwhile, the response was more Maybe than Definitely. --Barney Hoskyns

Format: Audio CD
In 1994, Grunge rock had deteriorated from the fresh, brooding energy of Stone Temple Pilots and Nirvana to the contrived repetitions of Bush and Silverchair. The once mighty Pearl Jam ("Ten," and "Vs.") had evaporated artistically with Eddie Vedder's recession into increasingly greater self-obsession and personal misery. The era was clearly in its final throes and rock fans were primed for something different. A record that spoke to the idea of rock as possibility and exuberance.

Into this greasy world of longhaired suicide cases and pseudo-nihilism came Liam and Noel Gallagher with brash English smiles and swaggering Manchester impudence. "Definitely Maybe" is an album seemingly replete with one simple message - I wanna be a rock-`n'-roll star! It is this mantra that makes the record, and indeed the band itself, so important in an era where mediocre substance too often supersedes rock's spirit. "Definitely Maybe" brings us back to the days when lusty-eyed youths willed fame and fortune through guitar strings and makes us forget the languid, whining, shallow psychology that cried its way into so much of 90's rock.

While each song on the album stands on its own, it is the entirety of this effort that warrants notice. The message is clear: "In my mind my dreams are real," Liam grinds in the opening track, unsurprisingly named "Rock `N' Roll Star." And while so many of the songs are just out-and-out Brit-rock fun (i.e. "Shakermaker," "Up in the Sky," "Digsy's Diner," etc.), there are several seriously arresting tracks as well. "Supersonic" features Oasis at their punkiest, while "Slide Away" seems to transcend the album itself, leaning, in a way, toward much of Oasis' more mature work yet to come.

Like Keith Moon and Pete Townshend from the Who, Liam and Noel from Oasis merit 5 stars for their comedic skills alone. That they also deliver the goods musically on this, their finest album, is worth another 4 stars. My only complaint is that the interviews aren't longer.

Since Amazon won't let me rate this 9 stars, I'll do the next best thing and share some of the DVD secret tracks with you. There may be more, but these are the ones I do know:

* DVD Secret Tracks *

Rock 'N' Roll Star audio track - press "down" on your DVD remote for an interview about Liam wanting bagpipes on Rock 'N' Roll Star. Yes, bagpipes.

Supersonic audio - press "down" for music theory.

Cigarettes & Alcohol audio - press "down" for interview with Noel about the song.

Slide Away audio - press "down" for interview about the name Definitely Maybe.

Married With Children audio - press "down" for the letter from Guigsy on why he was not on the DVD.

Sad Song audio - during the black intro, press "down" for audio clips of the legendary "Wibling Rivalry" interview.

Live Forever audio - press "down" for interview with Noel about wanting Live Forever as track three on the album.

Press "angle" on Live Forever, Shakermaker, Supersonic and Cigarettes & Alcohol for US versions of the videos.

For the first time ever, the whole album, including rare vinyl-only track 'Sad Song', is available on DVD. The classic audio version is accompanied by an hour-long documentary about the recording of the album featuring rare and contemporary interviews with the band, label, friends and entourage, memorable live and TV performances of Definitely Maybe's twelve era-defining tracks and - totalling nearly five hours of classic Oasis music and footage.The roll call, starting with performance footage:'Rock 'n' Roll Star' Top Of The Pops, September 1994'Shakermaker' Naked City, June 1994'Live Forever' Glastonbury, June 1994'Up In The Sky' Chicago Metro, October 1994'Columbia' Hammersmith Palais, December 1994'Supersonic' The Word, March 1994'Bring It On Down' Gleneagles, February 1994'Cigarettes And Alcohol' Southampton Guildhall, November 1994'Digsy's Dinner' Buckley Tivoli, August 1994'Slide Away' New York Wetlands, July 1994'Married With Children' Los Angeles Whiskey A Go Go, September 1994'Sad Song' Later With Jools Holland, December 1994Definitely Maybe : The DVD includes the bands promo videos for 'Supersonic', 'Shakermaker', 'Live Forever', 'Rock 'n' Roll Star' and 'Cigarettes And Alcohol' (uncensored), some with director commentaries. Also included are the U.S. videos for 'Live Forever' and 'Supersonic'. Hidden extras include a segment from the seminal Wibbling Rivalry Fierce Panda interview release and various non- documentary strands (including a letter from Guigsy), as well as other hidden extras. A bonus disc (only available until the end of 2004) includes further interviews and live performance footage.

Format: Audio CD
In the UK, "Definitely Maybe" was the biggest selling debut album of all-time. Here in the US, the album wasn't nearly as successful, but that doesn't mean it isn't a great album. Quite the contrary, "Definitely Maybe" is the album that launched Oasis into superstardom. Though US fans are more familiar with their second album, "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" and its mega-hits "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova", "Definitely Maybe" is certainly worth a listen from anyone who liked "Morning Glory" even a little bit. The album's most successful single, "Live Forever", is a timeless classic. This song contains brilliantly uplifting lyrics, an very unique melody, and superb vocal performances by the brothers Gallagher. This song ranks among my favorite Oasis songs of all-time. Other standout tracks include "Slide Away", a "sort-of ballad" containing outstanding lyrics and a blistering vocal performance from Liam Gallagher. This track has an incredibly catchy chorus, but the layers of electric guitars that enrapture it make it hard to call this song a traditional ballad. "Cigarettes and Alcohol" is a full-on rock and roll track with a great melody and awesome guitar riffs. If you can get past the morally deplorable lyrics you'll find this song to be the best rock song on the album. "Rock and Roll Star" is another great rock song on this album, and its lyrics are much more insightful than those of "Cigarettes and Alcohol". Though "Cigarettes and Alcohol" is a catchier tune, "Rock and Roll Star" is clearly the winner in the lyrics department. It's just classic Oasis rock and roll.Read more ›
