Oasis – What’s The Story Morning Glory?

Josh was thinking about the pride of Manchester(the pride that isn’t Boddington’s or The Stone Roses), Oasis. And has selected for us Oasis’s breakthrough smash “What’s the story Morning Glory”. An album that was fueled by the strength of singles like Champagne Supernova, Don’t Look Back in Anger, and of course Wonderwall. The album has sold 14 million copies worldwide and made Oasis, for a while at least, one of the biggest bands in the world. An interesting exercise would be to listen to this album, an album of booze filled ambition, and compare it with their next album Standing on the Shoulders of Giants, an album of cocaine filled lethargy. Try to put aside all the tabloid coverage of two brothers who thought they were both John Lennon and just listen to the music with an open mind.Here ya go, because Grooveshark doesn’t much Oasis:

And if you’d like (I hope this doesn’t go against Record Club’s ideals or by-laws) here is the whole album as a playlist of live-tracks.

Record Club began in the cold, dank, snowmageddon scene that was New England of January 2011. We’re probably no different than you. We all work in cubicles, some in smaller, less private cubicles than others; that just means we have to be even sneakier about how we listen to our music. But we have to listen to our music, mostly as a way of saving our own personal sanity. Sometimes our opinions lead us to debates that may or may not be published in their entirety on this site, but I can promise you’ll at least get a glimpse of the way our minds work. The main goal is to find new music we like or find old music that we didn’t know we liked. Sometimes we succeed, sometimes it’s a total and complete disaster. After our ears have rejoiced or stopped bleeding we try something else. This is our pattern, every Tuesday and Thursday. Sometimes, when the club isn’t officially in session, just to keep everyone on their toes, we throw in a theme day. We’re beginning to run low on our original list, so please, if you have albums that you’d like us to review or themes that you’d like to see our playlist of, feel free to contribute. After all, we’re all in this together once we punch the time clock. So if you’re busy (or just plain bored) lurking in your cubicle as you read this join in. After all, life wasn’t meant to be lived staring at a computer screen. I guarantee you, it’s at least more fun when you plug the headphones in.
