Believe The Truth: Oasis Is Back

I can't say what a delight it is to pop in a CD and be surprised. Too often these days artists only give us more of what we expect (see Coldplay X&Y). And while that sound might be excellent, the risk takers are rarely noticed, or rewarded by the populace at large.

Oasis, led by two of my favorite people in the world, Noel and Liam Gallagher, have re-discovered and reanimated their band. Their latest CD, Don't Believe the Truth, not only brings back the energy that made their early work memorable, but also branches out to a sound we haven't heard from Oasis.

Tracks like "Love Like A Bomb" sound familiar, but others like "The Importance of Being Idle" and the moving "Guess God Thinks I'm Abel" sound like something off from an entirely different band.

I can't reccomend this album enough. Welcome back Oasis.

P.S. If you are looking for laughs, read ANY interview with the two Gallagher brothers. They are hysterical, offensive and completely entertaining.
