When Definitely Maybe was released in 1994, Creation records were keen to get it on the shelves before the release of the long-awaited Stone Roses' "Second Coming;" -a wise move which resulted in it going straight to number 1 in the UK charts.

As Oasis' popularity grew, more & more bands appeared on the scene; and throughout the mid to late 90s, Brit pop became somewhat mainstream in the UK and although it's difficult to attribute that to one album, Definitely maybe certainly played a big part in setting the standards.

The album bursts open with a thunderous blend of guitars, drums and life affirming lyrics and on the whole, maintains this momentum throughout.

The aptly entitled "Live forever" still sounds as amazing as it did 20 years ago no matter how many times you've heard it before. The catchy lyrics of Supersonic & the cheeky little T-Rex-like riff at the start of Cigarettes and Alcohol are more addictive than, well, cigarettes and alcohol.

There is a gritty, raw quality to this album & with the rise of manufactured pop and squeaky clean boy bands, there will always be a place for lyrics like "I'm feeling Supersonic, give me gin & tonic, you can have it all but how much do you want it."

This album is a masterpiece with no fillers. It will go down in history as one of the greats, and rightly so.
My first impressions of this debut album from "Oasis": there's no maybe, "Definitely Maybe" is definitely everything you would expect and more from such a great group. This album, I think, shows a little more of the Beatles' substantial influence on their music than later ones. I do wish the album had some tracks with Noel Gallagher singing lead, but hey; that's not a drawback. I love to hear Liam too and his vocals are an excellent fit with every song.

"Definitely Maybe" opens with "Rock 'N' Roll Star" and sets the pace with a great (surprise!) rock song. I read that Oasis got sued over "Shakermaker" due to its resemblance to a certain soft drink commercial song. But I'll still shake along with it.

Liam gets to show off a great falsetto several of the tracks including "Live Forever" and "Up In the Air". My reaction to "Columbia": instantly bobbing my head along with its catchy rhythm. I'll never think of lasagne the same way after "Digsy's Dinner" - I don't even like lasagne but that line always makes me smile. "Slide Away" is good albeit a little lengthy. "Married With Children" is just nasty...in a totally good way. A bit too much profanity for my music library though; and the melody is very reminiscent of "Stand By Me" from a later album ("Be Here Now"). But give it a listen at least once.

"Supersonic" is by far the standout track for me. Some of the lyrics are pretty random, the name Elsa actually refers to a dog, lol. Catchy tune blended with a powerful set of bittersweet lyrics and a message to be yourself. Another wholehearted five-star review for Oasis with "Definitely Maybe".
