Oasis Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants 180g LP + Download 

 

Reissue of the out-of-print 2000 Oasis album, Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants

Recorded at Wheeler End, Olympic Studio, Supernova Heights, England and Chateau De La Colle Noire, France
between April '99 - Aug '99

180-gram gatefold black vinyl, includes album download

Released on February 28, 2000, Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants is Oasis' fourth studio album and it sold 310,000 copies in its first week. The name from the album comes from the Sir Isaac Newton quote on the £2 coin. It was also the first album to be released on the bands own Big Brother label. Produced by: Mark Stent and Noel Gallagher.

With Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, the self-professed "biggest rock & roll band in the world" continued their exploration of great British rock of the late '60s. Paying homage to heroes is one thing, but many of Standing's best moments sound like their icons' low points. This is Oasis, however, and they do pull some stunners out of their hats. "Gas Panic" and "Where Did It All Go Wrong?" demonstrate the command of catchy hooks and epic anthems that powered their classic first two albums, Definitely Maybe and (What's the Story) Morning Glory?

Elsewhere, their influences are more obvious. The psychedelic "Who Feels Love?" is George Harrison in full Eastern mystic mode, complete with sitar, tabla, and tape loops. The rocker "Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is" has the strut and stomp of vintage Doors and Rolling Stones, but is ultimately let down by weak wordplay. Liam Gallagher's "Little James," a paean to paternal love, also contains some laughable couplets ("You live for your toys, even though they make noise"). Still, Standing is a definite improvement over its 1997 predecessor, Be Here Now. For real proof that Oasis resurrected Britpop in the '90s, newcomers would do well to investigate Definitely Maybe and (What's the Story) Morning Glory?
