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

Product Description

Menuhin ~ Don`T Believe The Truth

Amazon.com

Oasis albums have always prompted flashbacks--Was that a Beatles melody? Is that chorus on loan from T. Rex? Wait, wasn't that a Crowded House song once? But the mouthy British group's latest really sounds like a pop artifact. Both in production and execution, Don't Believe The Truth feels like an album better suited to 1965 than 2005. From the tambourines and jangling guitars that chime in opening track "Turn Up To The Sun" to the tinny pre-hippie philosophizing of "Keep The Dream Alive," it's an album that thinks the way forward is by looking back. First single "Lyla" borrows its opening swagger from the Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man," while "The Meaning of Soul" lifts the Small Faces' mod jitters wholesale. But hack through the clichéd lyrics and worn riffs and the most important element on the follow up to 2002's Heathen Chemistry remains distinctly Oasis' own: Attitude. And in such wonderful abundance, "No one could break us/ No one could take us," they sing. --Aidin Vaziri

As someone who thinks Heathen Chemistry is a great album, I find this less a return to form, as it's generally being hailed, but as a continuation of this return. Always embracing their influences, I can hear plenty of traces of (of course) The Beatles, but also the Stones and an outro reminiscent to Mrs. Robinson in the song Lyla.

This is strong, confident, BIG rock and roll, and the songs are fantastic.

The difference between 4 and 5 stars for me is this: The lyrics are uniformly strong, but don't really take it to the next level. The biggest example is the use of the phrase "Blowin' my mind." Three songs in a row use this phrase: Mucky Fingers ("All the phoneys blowin my mind"), Lyla "I waited for a thousand years for you to come and blow me out my mind"), and Love Like a Bomb ("Blown' my mind, Blowin' my mind, Blowin' my mind"). This isn't a bad lyric in any of the songs, but the non-thematic repetition of this same phrase lessens the scope, for me, of the album as a whole. Perhaps spacing the songs out, or defining the album in such a way as to indicate the link between this repetition would have helped.

Nevertheless, "The Importance of Being Idle" is an absolute stunner, immediately one of the great Oasis songs. In fact, all of Noel's songs shine the brightest. He's writing and especially singing as well as he ever has. Truly, truly, an excellent album, worthy of the high praise it's receiving in all circles.

Rather than tear apart the latest effort by Oasis, I'd like to begin by pointing out several strong points on this album.

1. Lyla, the first single from this album, is a well-written, catchy song with some great vocals.

2. Let There Be Love is a beautiful song, and quite possibly one of Oasis's strongest ballads. Multiple listens and it gets even better.

3. Importance of Being Idle is a great song, and Noel does a great job on vocals. This tongue-in-cheek song about laziness is quite entertaining and a lot of fun to listen to. This track harkens back to some older Oasis...

Now for the weak points.

1. The first thing that ran through my head after listening through the album once was, "Who the heck is playing drums?" One of the weakest points of the album is the repetative, often dull drum beats. Two songs in particular come to mind: Mucky Fingers and Meaning of Soul. I don't know if they were trying for a "heavier" sound, but it came across as rather... well... "garage" sounding. I had no idea that Ringo's son drummed on this album until I read some of these reviews, but I have to say, I'm not impressed so far.

2. Unfortunately, many of these songs lack good hooks/climaxes. They start, but never go anywhere. The best way I can describe it is thus: when you have this CD playing in the background, nothing is so good that it comes OUT of the background and grabs your attention. This album lacks some of the indescribable "magic" one comes to expect from Oasis.

3. Finally, I have to agree with what many reviewers have said: the mixing on this album was terrible. I have a great stereo system in my car which does a great job of playing well-balanced music... you can hear everything, even over the noise of the road.

Don't Believe The Truth is the sixth Oasis studio album-and a very proud success for this group! You get the awesome hit single "Lyla" as well as "Let There Be Love." It appears they saved "Let There Be Love" as almost the best for last since this is one of the most beautiful songs I personally have ever heard! No longer is Oasis stumbling though setbacks and comebacks-I get the strong sense that they have permanently emerged strong and very memorable with this CD being the proof of it. You still get that classic British guitar pop rock flavor running distinctly throughout. Yet with this CD Oasis finally gives us the strong lyrics consistently throughout the album and the musical arrangements are both instantly and all at once both free and secure-a very tough feat to accomplish! Simply put: Oasis is back on top!

The CD starts off running strong and hard with the opening track "Turn Up The Sun." There is a beautiful and thoughtful musical intro to this track-love those lyrics! And how's about that guitar on "Mucky Fingers?" AWESOME! In "Love Like A Bomb" you hear of a man's love for his woman; it's very memorable. "Guess God Thinks I'm Abel" is practically instantly memorable; and "A Bell Will Ring" has great lyrics.

And that song, "Lyla." The guitar and the vocals blend flawlessly on "Lyla" and this is without doubt a great song. "Lyla," as some of you may already know, is destined to be a long lasting hit song. It is well crafted, well arranged, and very well performed here by Oasis. In fact, the total sum of every song on this CD proves Oasis is rejuvenated and very much a strong force on the music scene.

A special note once again on that last track, "Let There Be Love.

With Oasis' new effort I was curious whether they would attempt to keep moving forward with their music, or simply reach back to their roots for prior success. Well, they did a little of both, and rather well too.

For example, this album, more then any since "What's The Story (Morning Glory)" seems to return to that love of the Beatles; this is a resounding feeling with Oasis. However, Oasis realized a little while ago with their decline in popularity (and common sense) that they'd never match the fab four, so they've also added their own to the mix, which is of course necessary, but also quite fine.

`Lyla', their first single, strikes the listener clearly with the hooks and overall melodic feel. This is a single, so one must not forget that it is meant to be catchy (and succeeds). However, for songs that might not get as much notice "Guess God Thinks I'm Abel" is probably the best. The song is the epitome of that Oasis-Beatle combination I mentioned, and really a great listen.

So with nice sounds, both instrumental and vocal, I believe that "Don't Believe The Truth" will be another steady and good album for Oasis. Unlike Heathen Chemistry this disc has a lot less just `rock'. However, it also has a lot more classic Oasis, although still not completely progressing (or regressing) to the times of "What's The Story (Morning Glory)" or "Definitely Maybe".
