Our Review

In the tradition of his heroes The Smiths and The Jam, Noel Gallagher always considered Oasis a singles band, and like those two bands, Oasis are famous for relegating some of their best material to B-sides. While The Masterplan contains none of the band’s best-known songs, it ranks with Definitely Maybe and (What’s the Story) Morning Glory as one of the band’s best listens. “Acquiesce,” “Listen Up,” and “Fade Away” provide a nostalgic rush on par with classics like “Rock’n’Roll Star” and “Supersonic,” while “The Masterplan,” “Stay Young,” and “Rockin’ Chair” are among the band’s most unabashedly sweet songs. Perhaps the greatest strength of The Masterplan is its easygoing feel. With the release of Be Here Now in 1997, Oasis entered a period where pressure for them to live up to their reputation as the biggest band in the world resulted in albums that were overlabored. The Masterplan shows the band at its most fun, enjoying a period when pop songs came easily to them and making rock’n’roll was as easy as plugging in a guitar.

Customer Reviews

Noel Gallagher's B-Sides Kill Everybody Else's Singles (5 stars)
It's hard to imagine that these songs couldn't make albums. Such was the brilliance of Noel Gallagher's songwriting in the early 90s. He assumed he'd be able to write songs like this until the day he died, so he just blew through his expansive back catalog of songs with tons of B-sides. In retrospect, many of the subsequent albums would have benefitted from songs like Acquiesce, Fade Away and Stay Young, all of which stand up to anything

What b-sides? (5 stars)
I'll be brief. Most bands could make a ten-year career out of these 14 songs. It's as simple as that. A collection of b-sides that I would put up against other band's 20-year "best of's", if you want to understand why Noel Gallagher and company garner such a rabid following, listen to this for a week and you'll have the answer. Truly remarkable.

Some Great, Some Okay (4 stars)
Oasis is the greatest band ever (except maybe the Beatles). This album could had have better songs on it though. D'yer Wanna Be a Spaceman? and Step Out are sorely missed. Songs 1-3 are good. 5 is good. 6-9 are okay. 10 is the greatest song in the history of music. 11- 13 are pretty good. 14 is really good. Still, a must have for all.

Biography

Formed: 1993 in Manchester, England
Genre: Rock
Years Active: '90s, '00s

Oasis shot from obscurity to stardom in 1994, becoming one of Britain's most popular and critically acclaimed bands of the decade in the process. Along with Blur and Suede, they were responsible for returning British guitar pop to the top of the charts. Led by guitarist/songwriter Noel Gallagher, the Manchester quintet adopted the rough, thuggish image of the Stones and the Who, crossed it with "Beatlesque" melodies and hooks, injected distinctly British lyrical themes and song structures like the...
