“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


At their career zenith, Oasis were lauded as the best band in the world. They were actually never the greatest rock & roll band at any time, but for a few years they were the biggest. While they offered the '90s two of its most defining albums, and a resurgence of '60s-influenced Manchester rock, Oasis tumbled off the top of the mountain in the last half of the decade. Heathen Chemistry is their first step back up the ascent, albeit a small step. The album opens with "The Hindu Times," which will certainly be listed among Oasis's best anthems, and it closes with "Better Man," a distorted-guitar-driven thrill that revs up to 60 mph in second gear. But between the strongest songs on the disc, Noel "Walrus" and Liam "Eggman" Gallagher exploit the Beatles references almost to the breaking point. It's no secret that the Gallaghers worship the Beatles (who doesn't?), but here they've gone beyond obvious influences and stepped right into infringement territory. On "Born on a Different Cloud," Noel's guitar weeps a little too gently, and Liam's signature rasp now sounds like a deliberate imitation of Lennon with a cold. Further, Liam shares the mic with Noel, who sings lead on several tracks, the best being "Force of Nature." Unlike on Beatles albums, however, the switch back and forth is jarring (Liam might be the biggest troublemaker, but he is also the better singer). Nonetheless, if a band is going to unapologetically rip off what was unquestionably the best band in the world, no one does it better than Oasis. --Beth Massa

Customer Reviews

There was one great song on it, some good ones, but most I just couldn't listen to.
Michael Adams
Beautiful, melody-induced songs like "Stop Crying Your Heart Out" and "She Is Love" and the timeless "Songbird" are definite gems amidst Oasis` history.
If you're an Oasis fan, erm, excuse me, if you're a fan of good simple music, go out and buy this album now.

Took a brief time for the album to grow on me, so I'm glad I didn't immediately write a review because it would've been a less glowing one.
Plenty of rock 'n' roll songs on this album, but it's clear that Oasis is broadening its reach while at the same time maintaining that 'oasis' sound. Songbird (yes, Liam can write decent songs) and She is Love are quite nice and understated. Better Man rocks with an irrestible groove. But without doing a complete rundown I can just say there are plenty of standout tracks here. And the lyrics work well, too.

I'm sure every loyal Oasis fan was anxiously awaiting this album, their fifth studio album, after the disappointments that were BHN and SOTSOG. Well, the Gallagher brothers are back at it, and they're taking a step in the right direction. Though nowhere near as utterly transfixing as WTS(MG), or energetic like DM, it's still a fine album on its own. However, one can ask himself if Noel hasn't lost the inspiration since 1995. Gone are his raucous, raw rock anthems he used to so regularly write - Roll With It, Acquiesce, and Rock'N'Roll Star come to mind - the elder Gallagher now writes slower, moodier songs, but it's not all for the better.
Heathen Chemistry starts off well with the Hindu Times, a fine rock song, although I don't find it nearly as enganging as openings singles such as DYKWIM or Let It Out. The rest of the album is uneven, Force Of Nature just sounds like uncontrolled, irritating noise, but Stop Crying Your Heart Out is a showstopper, with orchestration that rivals Whatever. Liam actually writes some pretty good songs, Songbird, Born on a Different Cloud, and Better Man are, IMO, the better songs of the album. Little By Little is also a good song, written and sung by Noel. The difference between Liam and Noel's voice is jarring, because Liam sings better, and you can imagine how some songs would be if the turbulent younger brother would've sung them.
All in all, not a bad effort, but as an Oasis fan, I fell as though their thunder is not fully back yet. Sure, they're showing a more mature sound, but we can only hope they find that energy they had in the early 90s.

Boy, what can you say about this CD? Incredible! Diverse! Exciting! Every offering Oasis puts forth to us on this CD is outstanding. From the opening of 'The Hindu Times' to the closing number, which is a song by Liam, 'Better Man', this whole album takes you on a journey from great rock and roll music to the an instrumental number 'A Quick Peep' and to the slow numbers: the acoustic 'Songbird' (another offering by Liam), 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' and 'She is Love'. New guitarist Gem Archer get's my vote for having penned the best song on the CD, 'Hung in a Bad Place'. With a little help wtih great vocals from Liam, this song really rocks. Liam's third offering is 'Born on a Different Cloud' and is definately influenced by John Lennon. '(Probably) All in the Mind' is another great song, the guitar work by Gem is incredible, very controlled and smooth, as well as the vocals from Liam, they're dead on. 'Little by Litte' is an excellent song sung by Noel and has a Pink Floyd sound to it in the beginning that builds to a rockin ending. The other songs Noel sings are also excellent; 'She is Love', 'Songbird', 'Force of Nature'.
In interviews, Noel has said that he has at least 10 more albums in him. If that is true, the music world had better hold on for a long ride. With 'Heathen Chemistry', Oasis has left us wanting more..........and we will get it.

After the somewhat disappointing 2000 LP "Standing on the Shoulder of Giants", Oasis return in 2002 with a fantastic new album. "Heathen Chemistry" sees the songwriting of Oasis spread out even more, 3 songs from Liam Gallagher, 1 each from Gem Archer and Andy Bell, while the rest come from lead songwriter Noel Gallagher. "The Hindu Times" starts off the new album in a rocky, pyschadelic fashion with a great chorus and guitar riff. "Force of Nature" has grown on me over repeated listenings, a great tune with Noel on vocals. The Archer-penned "Hung in a Bad Place" is one of the more rockier songs on the album, offering a nice opening guitar intro. Without a doubt, "Stop Crying Your Heart Out" is the best track on the entire disc, in my opinion. A classic Oasis ballad, it's destined to be sung by many fans during the band's worldwide summer tour. It has a memorable chorus and a great middle eight section. "Songbird" is Liam's finest work to date, sounding very Beatles-esque with basically just acoustic guitars. "Little By Little" is another Noel-sung tune, which could turn out to be the 3rd single off the LP and another classic anthem. "Probably All in the Mind" will most likely be an underrated Oasis song, similar to "Sunday Morning Call", "Columbia", or "She's Electric". "She Is Love" sees Noel with his last vocal performance on the CD, a soft acoustic-driven song. The LP closes out with a great song "Born On A Different Cloud" (Liam written), and "Better Man" which I haven't warmed up to yet. This is a great return to the sound that worked on 1995's "What's the Story Morning Glory?", which has sold over 15 million worldwide. Oasis has always made excellent pop/rock music and this CD continues that trend. Oasis popularity (especially in the U.S.) might not ever get back to the days of 1995-1997, but if enough people get their hands on this album, you could see a surge of Oasismania!!!
