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

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, the self-professed "biggest rock & roll band in the world" continue their exploration of great British rock of the late '60s. Paying homage to heroes is one thing, but many of Standing's best moments sound like their icons' low points. This is Oasis, however, and they do pull some stunners out of their hats. "Gas Panic" and "Where Did It All Go Wrong?" demonstrate the command of catchy hooks and epic anthems that powered their classic first two albums, Definitely Maybe and (What's the Story) Morning Glory? Elsewhere, their influences are more obvious. The psychedelic "Who Feels Love?" is George Harrison in full Eastern mystic mode, complete with sitar, tabla, and tape loops. The rocker "Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is" has the strut and stomp of vintage Doors and Rolling Stones, but is ultimately let down by weak wordplay. Liam Gallagher's "Little James," a paean to paternal love, also contains some laughable couplets ("You live for your toys, even though they make noise"). Still, Standing is a definite improvement over its 1997 predecessor, Be Here Now. For real proof that Oasis resurrected Britpop in the '90s, newcomers would do well to investigate Definitely Maybe and (What's the Story) Morning Glory? --Rob Burrow

4.0 out of 5 stars who knows... March 3, 2000
By Steve
Format:Audio CD
I guess Im still from the old school camp who thought that Be Here Now wasnt really THAT bad. I agree with Noel who has been quoted in interviews saying that it (BHN) really didnt deserve all the credit that it got when it first came out but, by the same token, didnt deserve all of the slagging it got after everyone realized that they had given it 8 out of 10. But isnt that what is so great about Oasis anyways? That they can release albums which meet a public both feverish and fed-up with them. They have always been, for me, the perfect antidote to the Pavements and more "literate" rock of the 90's...or the spotlight-fearing likes of Eddie Vedder and Co. Deceptively simple and straight ahead...the songs and the band seem much more obvious than they really are. It's more in the feeling and emotion that those who still hold Definitely Maybe so dear still know and feel. Producer Mark "Spike" Stent has given that sound a more dense, hypnotic sense...and the album, overall, a less-polished feel. If you don't like Oasis chances are you still aren't going to like them after this record. I've gotten in way too many arguments trying to make converts out of some of my friends :) Go sit and listen to SOTSOG...take it for what it is...NOT Definitely Maybe, NOT Be Here Now, Not WTSMG, NOT The Masterplan...but, rather, another step and more great pop/rock music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ignorance Crafts an Underrated Album July 30, 2006
By Matt M.
Format:Audio CD
Here's a perfect example of how attitude changes an entire listening experience. Easily the most bashed work in the Manchester great's back catalogue, called worst album of 2000 on several occasions, slated as a worthless Pink Floyd rip-off with no standout tracks, Standing on the Shoulder represents a career low point for Oasis--this was the first true testament that the band was not immortal, not the Beatles of the new age, but in fact slipping from the title of Brit-Rockers-in-chief. Sigh. It's the album that die-hard Radiohead and Coldplay fans always refer to when discussing Oasis' inferiority, blasting Noel Gallagher for "never progressing as a song writer." Sigh again. I've never really figured out the thunderous disapproval of the album, and I ultimately enjoyed most of the songs. Does SOTSOG contain some garbage? Without a doubt, but not nearly enough to ruin the entire experience, or throw Oasis off their high horse as most critics claim. Here're some facts all listeners need to be aware of: 1) `F****n' in the Bushes,' `Go Let It Out,' and Gas Panic!' are three of the best songs of Oasis' career. Wasn't `Go Let It Out' #1 hit in the UK, going right alongside `Yellow' and even surpassing `Optimistic'? 2) The biggest problem with SOTSOG occurs in the format, unusual for a psychedelic album such as this. If there's any real unending quandary here, it's that the worst two songs on the album, `Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is' and `Little James' fall in at numbers 4 and 5 respectively. These should have been either left out or positioned differently, perhaps further down in the line up while moving high qualities, perhaps `Roll It Over,' up in the track listing. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars A new direction... stay tuned... March 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
First of all, I own every other Oasis recording, know every note of every song ever committed to disc by them, and as such am obviously in agreement with the obvious: Definitely Maybe and Morning Glory ARE CLASSICS of 5-Star quality. Be Here Now is unnapreciated for sounding cliche-ridden and sounding like the other two, but it is UNDERRATED, seeing that it contains some classic Oasis songs... Standing on the Shoulder is the work of a more mature Noel Gallagher, who no longer seems to swagger a la "Rock and Roll Star", ditto for Liam, who should stick to singing and banging the tambourine... "Little James" is only redeemed by Noel's melody. Do they sound like the Beatles? Yeah... And like Big Star, T-Rex, Slade, The Stones, The Stone Roses, and The Jam, too. SO WHAT? WHO CARES? Did the Beatles invent tape-looping, overdubbing, tablas, and sitars? Did they rip off Brian Wilson, Phil Spector and Ravi Shankar? This is much mellower than "Definitely Maybe" and "Be Here Now", more like "Morning Glory", though Noel seems to be seeing Cornershop as his main artistic rivals now, now that Blur and The Verve are no longer challenges. Thus, the "Tomorrow Never Knows" feel to Liam's voice and the studio trickery. There are only two singles here: "Go Let It Out" and "Where Did It All Go Wrong", but "Roll It Over" is haunting and challenging. This is NOT tired and mediocre, merely more challenging and textured: the work of a more subdued band. The loss of Guigsy and Bonehead SHOULD be felt, however... That's the main challenge for this band, not the general MTV-based public's opinion. Who cares about fair-weathered John and Jane Q.Publics who now own Ricky Martin and Backstreet Boys records and who once owned Morning Glory? Real fans' opinions count only. And being real fans give us the right and obligation to TRY to be objective. Which is why I give it 3-Stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting better, man! February 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
So Oasis can no longer possibly be as big as they were in the heady summer of 1996 at Knebworth. So their last album, Be Here Now, tanked commercially and critically. So two original founding members of the band packed it in. So what, seems to be the response of the brothers Gallagher with this triumphant step forward, both lyrically and musically.
It doesn't rock like Definitely Maybe, it doesn't move you in the way that Morning Glory did back in 95-96, and it (happily) lacks the bombast (hubris?) of Be Here Now. But this album sets itself apart from its predecessors by being perhaps the most interesting in the Oasis catalogue for it seems to be the first personal album -- where lyricist Noel Gallagher had only flirted with expressions of actual feeling on Be Here Now ("Damn my education/I couldn't find the words to say"), SOTSOG reads more autobiographically, most successfully on "Gas Panic" (Noel's tale of being in the throes of cocaine addiction). Also interesting is Liam Gallagher's first attempt at songwriting on "Little James", which while in many ways simplistic, is catchy as all get-out. No song on this album is less than good, with the possible exception of "I Can See A Liar", which while quite rocking, has a pedestrian throwaway lyric that isn't worthy of the Noel Gallagher brand name.
A lot has been made, in reviews elsewhere, that this isn't the quantum leap forward musically that had been promised (with dance grooves, bass 'n' drum, etc.) -- I beg to differ. My first listen to this album was done on headphones, and sonically it was, erm, supersonic.
