So first off I want to thank mp3Caprice for getting this album, now I have all seven Oasis albums (plus a few extra compilations/singles/b-sides/live recordings/etc). I really can't give anything by Oasis anything less than 5 stars, although as a whole this album isn't my favorite of theirs. Possibly because Noel Gallagher only wrote 5 of the 11 tracks. But I've listened to it a few times since downloading and I like it better every time!

"Turn Up the Sun" is a decent opening track, the first of Andy Bell's compositions on the album. I didn't like "Mucky Fingers" at first but it's really grown on me! After all I have a hard time not liking practically anything Noel sings; the harmonica in it is great too. "Lyla" is a great upbeat anthem that, again, gets better with multiple listens!

Okay. Now the first star track on "Don't Believe the Truth" for me is "The Importance of Being Idle." Noel on lead vocals again, with awesome lyrics. Love the part "I begged my doctor for one more line, he said, 'Son, words fail me.'" Seems to relate to Noel's giving up cocaine. The music moves lazily along enough to match the tone of the lyrics but is also quite rousing in parts. The accompanying music video is really interesting as well, considered one of Oasis' best. It's a short film that features actor Rhys Ifans as a funeral director directing his own funeral! Noel and Liam appear as the owners of the funeral parlor. I was just reading the wiki article for this and it says that Liam Gallagher's son Lennon has a cameo in the video - I didn't catch that before so I'll have to watch it again now!

"Part of the Queue" is another good track with Noel on lead vocals. Reportedly inspired by his experience trying to buy milk in a shop with way too long of a queue! Andy Bell's second composition on the album is "Keep the Dream Alive"; this is my favorite Liam-sung track on the album. Unfortunately I'm not too crazy about the three songs Liam wrote for the album ("Love Like a Bomb", "Meaning of Soul", "Guess God Thinks I'm Abel"), but they're all right. Gem Archer wrote "A Bell Will Ring", not one of the album's best tracks but not bad either!

And Oasis saved the best for last. "Let There Be Love" is one of the best songs from their whole discography. Not very often you get both Liam and Noel on lead vocals, but when they do sing together it's brilliant. Liam does the main section and Noel comes in part way through ("Come on, baby blue..."). Absolutely beautiful song, slower paced, kind of mellow, and with very moving lyrics.

This album as a whole may not be your best introduction to Oasis but if you're already familiar with their music, I highly recommend it. Five stars.
