    In spite of everything that Oasis would become on record, on stage, in the tabloids, Definitely Maybe stands above it all.

    Upon its release in 1994, Definitely Maybe sounded messy and thrilling. Now, of course, it sounds like a classic. [Jun 2014, p.127]

    This remains the Gallagher brothers' finest hour, and one of the great debuts of the last 20 years. [No. 109, p.57]

    Definitely Maybe is the sound of people who feel like they need to scream to be heard—and even then, the chances of anyone actually listening seems depressingly unlikely. And yet, not wholly impossible.

    Packaged with some afterthe-event boisterousness courtesy of Neil McCormick’s sleevenotes and a sprinkling of mythologising, Definitely Maybe remains classic enough.

    Don’t be surprised if this box set doesn’t drastically change your preconceived notions of what this already-iconic album is about, but for those who think the Gallagher’s never got better than this, consider this the only Oasis box set you will ever need.

    For those of us willing to succumb to a little bit of irony and absorb several hours' worth of Oasis stuff, here it is, and everyone else can join the Gallaghers of the world and complain amongst themselves.

This is where it all began and stands as a bench mark of what a great album should be. You probably already own this but if not then get it. This brought guitar music back to the masses and put simply is one of the best albums of all time. Expand

    An absolute masterpiece, Supersonic, Live Forever, Slide Away, Rock'n Roll Star in the same album, that's insane.

    That album is definitely a pure 10/10. Best debut album of all the time and one of the greatest albums ever. No maybe.

    An excellent debut in which Oasis defines their style and creates some iconic songs that are better than Wonderwall.
