  • OASIS: DEFINITELY MAYBE: 1994: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: IPOD: ROCK: My favorite new rock band in the mid-90’s had to have been Oasis- their first few albums especially were being constantly played in my car as I commuted to work. I would have to go with their debut album as their best. Grunge had run its coarse it was great to hear an upbeat rock band. Mount Rushmore- ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Star’, ‘Supersonic’, ‘Live Forever’ and ‘Cigarettes and Alcohol.’ One of the best if not the best album of the 1990’s.

  • OASIS: [WHAT’S THE STORY] MORNING GLORY? 1995: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: IPOD: ROCK: The sophomore album from Oasis came out a little more than a year after the debut and it was just as good. It is hard for me to believe that “Wonderwall” was the only hit that Oasis had in the US during their career. Mount Rushmore: ‘Wonderwall’, “Champaign Supernova’, ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ and ‘Roll With It.’ The first two Oasis albums stack up well with the first two albums of about anyone I can think of. Even The Osmonds.

  1. I almost spit drink of water on my screen reading the last sentence. Hans did you listen to any other Brit Pop band at the time like Blur? I always thought Oasis was more accessible…never got why they were not huge in America.

  2. While I’m very familiar with the name Oasis, I think I only had heard “Wonderwall”. “Don’t Look Back in Anger” did seem to ring a distant bell as well.

    Based on the tunes you called out, these two albums sound very promising.

    By the time the ‘90s came, I think I mostly paid attention to newly released music by “old artists” as opposed to artists who started their recording careers during that decade.
