    oasis are amazing live. everyone who thinks they sound crap are obviously just weirdos who don't know good music if it hit them in the face, who more than likely sit as home listening to their slipknot albums

    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.

  1. On the group's first live album --a two-CD set recorded during triumphant return shows at London's Wembley Arena this summer -- however, the maturity that has started to pervade their personal lives, and Noel's music, is evident.
  2. Drenched in feedback and carbuncled with extra riffs, Familiar To Millions makes Be Here Now sound like it was recorded on a four-track by Elliott Smith. Yet unlike recent Oasis albums it's mostly fun, going right back to the broad, singalong Gallagher-karaoke of more innocent times. It helps that the Oasis 2000 set consisted mainly of their earlier, more familiar, better material being put through a wringer of behemoth-rock.
  3. Satisfying without being transcendent-
