Anniversary Albums – OASIS – Their Third LP ‘BE HERE NOW’ Is Twenty Today…

Going back in sonic history…



Reviews: by Rolling Stone (they bloody liked it back then!)
and Picthfork (they didn’t like it)

Released: 21 August 1997 – 20 years ago today…

What NOEL GALLAGHER said: “Looking back on it after 20 years, we should never have made that record then. ‘Cause we came off the back of that American tour which was, again, the third tour in a row that we never completed. And I came back to the airport and the fucking world’s press was there and instead of going, ‘Right, we should just go our separate ways for a year
or two,’ we decided like idiots to go straight into the studio, it was just ridiculous. I often think,
the people around us who were in the music business for 20 years before we got there should really have said something…”

Turn Up The Volume! says: As an Oasis fan from day one (I saw them for the first time in 1994 in London, a month before they released their triumphant debut longplayer) I was pretty disappointed. ‘Be Here Now‘ sounded like a record made by doped millionaires (which is what they were by then) who taught they (finally) could conquer America with a million guitar overdubs and tons of cocaine. Except for the next three songs and a couple of average tunes (Stand By Me/ Don’t Go Away), I can’t hardly remember how the other
songs actually sound like…

The three highlights: D’You Know What I Mean? / Be Here Now / All Around The World

* D’YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? great title, great choppers

* BE HERE NOW rawkkkkk and rollllllll

* ALL AROUND THE WORLDtheir ‘Hey Jude’ moment...
