Josh’s Musings – What’s The Story Morning Glory?

Oasis – Morning Glory: 3 stars

Precon: This was the first CD I ever bought. I listened to it a lot over the course of a year or two, to the point where it seemed played out, and haven’t revisited it since. Record Club to the rescue!

Favorite Track: Morning Glory (most energy)
Least Favorite: Cast No Shadow (most cheesy)

Oh my God, the lyrics are soooo bad. I didn’t realize it when I was 14 probably because they’re the kind of lyrics I would have written at that age. Now I find myself cringing. The music is pleasant, but the words are meaningless. And words are all they are for the most part. There’s no conviction behind them. Just a guy saying words with some vocal effects to make him sound cooler.
Wonderwall remains a classic, maybe because of all the drunken singalongs in college.
I didn’t realize Don’t Look Back in Anger ripped off Imagine back in the day.
Champagne Supernova always annoyed me withs its precious self seriousness. I like it a little better now.
Seems like they’re trying so hard to be rock stars but don’t have enough substance. Everything sounds pretty good when taken at face value, if a little unexciting at times, and they are able to take it to the next level on a few occasions, but overall they’re lacking something. The album is still a decent listen though, with some nice high points.

He may look like just an ordinary pizza flingin’ oven jockey, but no—this dude can lay the smack down with the bets of em’. He’s Josh, the "Brick Oven", and he’s the owner and head cook at Josh’s Joint. Who does he lay the smack down on exactly? His customers, that’s who. Order something the wrong way—catch a body blow. Ask for extra garlic in a rude manner—smack to your grill space. Walk into his joint like you own the place—your head goes through the soda fountain machine right quick. This motherfu*ker doesn’t mess around. He once gave a dude an atomic wedgie and stuffed his face in a toilet just for calling him “chief”. Come in his restaurant talkin’ bout, “can I get some garlic knots”, while he’s watching Judge Judy, and you just might get your ass handed to you with a side of Josh’s famous pizza sauce. If by some miracle you are able to duck his punches or fight off his attacks, you then might be invited to his afterhours fight club, which he holds in the back alley behind the restaurant.
