    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.

There is not one bad song on this record. Live Forever is potentially Oasis' best song (Stop ranting already you Wonderwall fanboys/fangirls). Supersonic and Bring it on Down are just beautifully noisy songs. Slide Away is a genius love song and Married with Children is just a big **** you towards relationship. Expand

This brought guitar music back to the masses and put simply is one of the best albums of all time. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This album is era-defining. From songs like "Rock 'n' Roll Star" to "Married With Children", every song on the album leads the listeners into a new world or genre that would be essential to the development of the Britpop genre. The album features great singles such as "Live Forever" and "Supersonic", wlmakes this album near flawless. The vocals on this album was exceptional, a 21 year old Liam Gallagher was unbelievable. This album would've turned Oasis from just a underground indie group to one of the biggest bands of the 90's. Expand
