Oasis released their debut album, "Definitely Maybe" in 1994, and quickly came to summarise the Britpopmovement,becomingarch rivalswith Damon Albar's band, Blur. Thanks to the arrogance of frontman Liam Gallagher who wouldbecome alegend of theBritish tabloid press,they have rarely been off the front pages for long, but it's worth remembering thattheir first 2albums weretrue classics of the genre, with era-defining songs such as "Wonderwall", "Live Forever" "ChampagneSupernova"and "Don'tLook Back In Anger". Put simply, if you're British andof a certain age, these guys probably provided a majorpart ofthesoundtrack to your chilhood. Sadly though they released 3 albums, startingwith "Be Here Now" which threatened todestroytheband's legacy due to massive musical flaws, which made one query whether the old Oasiswere ever capable ofrelasinganotheralbum. The band's low point was reached with 2002's "Heathen Chemistry", but their album of earlier thisyear,"Don'tBelieve TheTruth", marks something of a return to form, although it still lags behind their classic work. Oasis remainaformidablelive act andone of Britain's biggest bands. « hide
