Oasis - (What's The Story) Morning Glory

Hello Monday. I actually feel rested and ready for you this week. Hooray! I'm so excited that I've decided to roll with one of my favorite mid 90's albums, Morning Glory by Oasis. What a fun album. When this dropped in 1995 - you couldn't walk out of your bedroom and into the kitchen for a bowl of cereal without hearing 'Wonderwall'. Crazy stuff. Although it was a great song, it was very much in too heavy of a rotation back in the day. Going into the history of the band, I'm sure most of you already know the story. Oasis is lead by the brothers Noah and Liam Gallagher - and they've had tensions since day one. There was a lot of publicized issues with this album even, as they fought over who'd sing lead on certain tracks. Pretty silly considering the huge success they knew they had. This album is 10 songs deep, and six of them saw pretty solid radio success. If 60% of your songs are good enough to get air play, you're cooking with gas. This is by far their best selling album in both the states and the UK. 14x platinum in the UK and 4x in the states. Huge numbers. Background and issues aside, this album is great. I can't think of anything wrong with it. Even the songs that aren't radio singles are still really good. If you haven't checked this out in full before, you're in for a treat. Pretty easy listen as the ten tracks are arranged beautifully. Top notch album and a great way to start your Monday morning.
