  1. The mix here is guitars to 11, everything else to 6, as the slurring, inebriated Liam is buried under mountains of riffs for better and worse.... Familiar to Millions reheats leftovers of better songs written six years ago and force-feeds them as reminders that Oasis could once write an uplifting song. As for those looking for a compact, two-disc set of Oasis' best, it's called What's the Story Morning Glory? and Definitely Maybe-- available for the low price of $8 at your local used record shop.
  2. In a live setting, Oasis are too often just another band churning out big, bad anthems for the masses.... it remains troubling that a band with so much quality material buried as b-sides or minor album cuts needs to resort to pointless, set-padding covers of Neil Young's "Hey Hey, My My," and the Beatles' "Helter Skelter."

    A truly great Oasis album. It's mainly a greatest hits set from "94" to "2000", of course skipping nearly everything on "Be Here Now", A truly great Oasis album. It's mainly a greatest hits set from "94" to "2000", of course skipping nearly everything on "Be Here Now", all except "Stand By Me". They sound tight, loud and Liam shows why he's the greatest rock "n" roll singer ever. Full Review »
