Album Description
Available in: Country Icon Country Icon Country Icon
(What's the Story) Morning Glory? est le deuxième album du groupe de rock britannique Oasis, sorti le 2 octobre 1995 chez Creation Records. L'enregistrement de l'album est interrompu par une violente bagarre entre les frères Gallagher et se fait donc en deux temps. Il contient les premiers tubes d'Oasis, Some Might Say, Champagne Supernova, Don't Look Back in Anger, et bien sûr Wonderwall qui connaît un très grand succès. Le son du groupe se fait moins brut que celui de Definitely Maybe avec des arrangements plus variés.

Il sort au plus fort de la rivalité du groupe avec Blur et occupe à sa sortie la première place des classements musicaux au Royaume-Uni et dans plusieurs autres pays. Il est désormais le plus grand succès commercial du groupe avec plus de 22 millions d'albums vendus à travers le monde. Il reçoit plusieurs récompenses, dont le Brit Award du meilleur album britannique en 1996, et est suivi par une tournée ayant engendré quelques-uns des plus grands concerts de la carrière du groupe, notamment celui de Knebworth, renforçant ainsi l'« Oasismania » qui marque le sommet de leur popularité en 1995 et 1996. Accueilli tout d'abord de façon mitigée par la critique, il est par la suite considéré comme l'album phare de la britpop et figure dans plusieurs listes des meilleurs albums de tous les temps.

User Album Review
Out of the fist-fights and fall out that constituted at least part of the recording of this album, Oasis came out of it with a set of songs that stand-up as their finest to date. As Beatles tribute acts go they’ve probably done more than most to educate a younger class of music fan about the virtues and talents of the Fab Four.
Whilst accepting that they’re heavily indebted to the late-period Fabsters, Noel Gallagher and company bring a lusty aggression to their music that Lennon would only really find briefly in the early stages of his solo career, and that Paul McCartney is probably still looking for. Their confidence, some might say arrogance, is stamped over every last inch of the record. Each track is possessed with an unshakeable belief that anything is possible, that everything is reach.
The flagrant swagger of the record is an essential part of its appeal; fans knew they’d be alright in this lot’s company, and droves of them wanted to be in the gang. Sales were astronomical with two singles, “Some Might Say” and “Don’t Look Back In Anger” hitting number one, whilst “Wonderwall” and “Roll With It” fell in just behind that. Though there’s nothing flash about the music or the ambit of its lyrical content, its solid construction provides it with a dependable familiarity.
The album went up against Blur’s The Great Escape in the Brit-pop battles – a hyped-up turf war that sprung from Oasis’ genuine enmity for what they saw as the la-de-da pretension. As much about the post-Thatcher North/South divide as a punch-up between affectation and authenticity, at least with Oasis what you saw was what you got – they did exactly what they said they’d do on the tin. Now over ten years old “Roll With It” still sounds fresh, as does the title track, whilst “Wonderwall” has lost none of its status as an eternal, yearning anthem.
There’s a fine line between self-assurance and over-confidence but given the size of the egos and volatile emotions involved in its making, remarkably Morning Glory gets it right every time.

One of the great albums of its generation, if not all time. Hit after hit of tunes.
