So, we finally reach number one, and with nothing more than a record from the ’90s. If Oasis can’t change your life or your perspective on life, than I don’t know what will. This brilliant, epic album filled with classics is essential in everyone’s collection. There isn’t a single song you’ll want to skip or a song that you won’t enjoy.
Although the fan favorite is Definetly, Maybe, the band has as the magnum-opus (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?. The band since then has released many, many albums, but none of them ever came close to this gem. Maybe its the songs like the playful, feel-good “She’s Electric” or the rock-esque “Some Might Say” mixed with a bit of nostalgia, but the band just never reached these heights anymore.
The classics are all over the place here, like the teen-favorite “Wonderwall”, a beautiful song carried on by Gallagher’s punk-esque vocals and utterly honest lyrics. “Don’t Look Back In Anger” is another fantastic song, with Gallagher singing eloquently: “Don’t put your life in the hands of a rock and roll band / Who’ll throw it all away”.
The album ends in a majestic, epic way with the classic “Champagne Supernova”, a song that deserves to be listened at least once, thanks to its overall feel and the mystical lyrics.
I’m not going to lie. (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? is my favorite album of all time. It is filled with classics, brilliant lyrics and amazing vocals. I don’t think I could give it an higher recomendation. Buy it, borrow it, steal it (not advisable)… Just listen to it.
Listen to: Champagne Supersona, Wonderwall, Don’t Look Back In Anger.
