OASIS - Dig Out Your Soul

Great album! I've never had any of their albums before this one. I happened to hear of it on EverHYPE: Music HYPES, Movie HYPES, Game HYPES by YOU! (fun little bragging site) and bought the deluxe version with DVD of them making the album at Abbey Road; lot's of great stuff in there a must for gearslutz pornification.

Anyways... The album is really cool and vibey, a great piece of work; kudos to the band and Dave Sardy.

Anyone else have thoughts on it?

I had a first listen of this yesterday, and it didn't jump out to me. Sonically it sounded solid, but as far as the songs went, nothing was catchy enough for me to be like "Holy s---!"

I'll give it a go again today though, because I like Oasis, and Noel Gallagher is my secret hero of badassery

I dunno why, but Oasis is the only band, who's every new album i like. Sonically their albums are not amongst the best in my list, but musically... there is some magic in their music.

Dave Sardy drum sounds are incredible....certainly one of the best rock producers out there.....
I am always dreaming of a Dave Sardy sample libary.

From the studio footage i´ve seen, it seems that he usually uses a lot of vintage Neumanns on drums.

+1 on the new album. Back to the roots of their sound, ala the first two albums. Grows on you with every listen.

off topic - but I was at Abbey Road late last year whilst they were their. Spoke to Gem in the canteen. I assume this was tracking for the album?

I'm not Oasis fan but I've met and liked Noel. My brother toured with them extensively through the USA a couple of years ago.

Gave it a listen about a week ago. I liked what I heard but I definitely think their first two albums are far and away their best and probably will be their best. Oasis is one of my favorite bands I've seen them in concert probably a dozen times (from early on). Liked em before they hit it big. But I'm into that kinda british rock stuff. I loved the Stone Roses, The Charlatans, etc and still do love them.

But lately I've been impressed with oasis this album and their last (Don't Believe the Truth) have grown on me, they've kinda tried going back to their roots and adding some twists. They aren't just trying to churn stuff out to keep with demands like they were for a few albums there other oasis fans know what I mean.

Actually I consider their first two albums "Definitely Maybe" and "What's the story Morning Glory" to be some of the greatest written rock albums of all time. And although Noel isn't a flashy or gaudy guitarist he is highly tasteful in his musicianship and playing.

Definitely Maybe is a pretty good album. I think mostly because Noel didn't run away with it.... don't like any of the others really. They always come across to me as well recorded local amateur pub rock.. Noel is a gent though...

im a huge oasis fan (check name :P)

i really think the addition of gem and andy helped save oasis, everyone is writting songs now and everyone is contributing to the albums. Don't believe the truth and Dig out your soul are amazing. Of course thier first 2 are thier best, but thats a whole diffrent vibe.

and i still have a soft spot for the coke fueled be here now and all of its over indulgence hahah...

I really dig Dave Sardy's work; I wish there was more info on him and some of his techniques. (seen the tape op article from way back)

The funny thing is I didn't know he worked on this album, though when I first listened to it I thought this sounds like something Dave would do, and low and behold...

The behind the scenes DVD stuff is cool.

Anyone have some Sardy insight?

it's a pretty cool album. They keep fighting the good fight and I keep buying their albums. But, they don't have that hunger that they had when they were still proving themselves. The last few albums have been good, and acceptable, but not as good as I think the could have been had they focused more time on writing.

I really like this one, I stopped listening Oasis a couple of albums a go, but this one is fantastic, way more experimental and the songs are really good.

I still haven't forgiven Oasis for talking **** about INXS. Especially now that Michael is gone.



Gallagher v Hutchence

With Britpop at its height, the night of the 1996 ceremony proved to be something of a changing of the old guard.

After being presented with the best British band award by INXS singer Michael Hutchence, Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher dismissed the 80’s rocker with the stinging line: "Has-beens shouldn't be presenting awards to gonna-bes."

Hutchence later responded by secretly back-masking the line “better than Oasis” over the INXS track Elegantly Wasted.

Every time I hear something that totally rocks in a non-radio/CLA way, it's always Dave Sardy!

Fan since Barkmarket.

Nope, I don't think it was arranged. I think Liam Gallagher is an arrogant prick.

i've always disliked oasis' music, but i picked up dig out your soul (with dvd of course) because shock of the lightning was so good. it really is a great album. and the vocal production on many of the tracks is unlike anything i've heard before. it all rocks.

still no info about sardy on this thread, time for a bump. hope somebody has something.
