    Pick up a guitar, put your fingers anywhere on the strings, and just strum that cord over and over. Than sing whatever the hell you want, or just whine in a singing voice, and you have as much creativity as a band like Oasis.

    poo oasis use the same damn riffs as every other song they have inflicted on an unwitting public. The combination of average music and cliched rhyming dictionairy lyrics combine to great effect to create what would have been an albumn of outstanding mediocraty if it had been a first albumn. This many years down the line and it's just the same old tat.

    A very poor effort at trying to regain old Oasis fans

    It's funny how Oasis fans blame bad reviews on "backlash" and cant accept that Heathen Chemistry is a very bland and average record by a band that is getting worse and worse with each album.

  1. Pretty much the same Beatles-esque pub-rock with Middle Eastern punches you'd expect--though with more shared singing and songwriting duties than past outings have had.
  2. Heathen Chemistry gets back to what Oasis do well.
  3. While the electronic flourishes and arrogant bombast that respectively marred the band's last two efforts are thankfully gone, there's nothing on Heathen Chemistry to suggest that the "Wonderwall" commercial glory days of the mid-'90s are coming back.
