AllMusic/Stephen Erlewine: “If ‘Definitely Maybe’ was an unintentional concept album
about wanting to be a rock & roll star, (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? is what happens after the dreams come true. Oasis turns in a relatively introspective second record, filled with big, gorgeous ballads instead of ripping rockers… Gallagher’s lyrics work best in fragments, where the images catch in your mind and grow, thanks to the music. Gallagher may be guilty of some borrowing, or even plagiarism, but he uses the familiar riffs as building blocks. This is where his genius lies: He’s a thief and doesn’t have many original thoughts, but as a pop/rock melodicist he’s pretty much without peer.” Full review here. Score: 5/5.
Noel Gallagher: “Those songs are just a privilege to be a part of. It’s like when you do great gigs, you come off stage and say well it was a privilege to be at that gig, regardless of my part
in it. “Those ones like ‘Wonderwall’, ‘Don’t Look Back’ and ‘Champagne Supernova’ when I play them sometimes I think ‘wow it is a privilege to be a part of this’.” Read full Noel interview here.
Turn Up The Volume: “The album with the two titanic songs – ‘Wonderwall’
and ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ – that made the Gallagher bros immortal.”
