On the new Oasis album

Oasis released their first CD in three years today, Don’t Believe the Truth.

I’ve listened to it twice now. I’m not taken with it. And I’ll be damned if I could really explain why.

The music is okay, but not catchy. What it sounds like is a Beatles tribute band, only moreso. And yes, I know Oasis took their lead from Revolver-era Beatles, but I’d expect something catchy to come from that. Instead, a lot of the songs feel insubstantial and unfinished.

I’ll listen to it a few more times to form a final opinion, surely, but it’s not on top of my list of things-to-do.

And here I was, looking forward to a summer with new Oasis and new Coldplay. Don’t let me down, Coldplay.
