This review is from: Be Here Now (Audio CD)
I became a die-hard Oasis fan after getting "Definitely Maybe" from my local library and falling in love with it. It has since become one of my top 5 albums ever, but Be Here Now is my 2nd favorite release of theirs. Yes, I know what you are thinking...this man is the only person in existence who likes BHN more than WTSMG. Not true. I love them both equally, but BHN has a special place in my heart. I don't really understand why so many journalists/critics/fans think of this as a "letdown". It contains at least 5 of the best Oasis songs ever (Stand by Me, I Hope I Think I know, D'you know What I Mean?, All Around the World, It's Gettin' Better (Man!!)). In fact, the last 2 are some of the best songs ever made. Seriously. Here's the truth folks: Oasis has never made a weak album. Some are better than others (the first 3-all masterpieces) and others have some weak songs (Standing on the Shoulders of Giants and Don't Believe the Truth - though both are still outstanding).
