  Near perfection for a 'Best of'

| | See all MagicLemur's reviews (5)

There are many who say that this album is 'too short' and that it should include songs like Stay Young, All Around The World etc. Personally I disagree - I say that this is an ace best of and the envy of most other bands out there.

The songs on there meld near seamlessly, which is a hard thing to do as I know from compilation writing. In fact its eerie how well The Importance Of Being Idle blends so well with Wonderwall - you could almost think it was from the same album! The songs themselves are also the real classics, without including all the tunes that have unpleasant memories associated with them (e.g. D'you Know What I Mean? being the harbinger of their 1997 downfall, even though in itself it is a good tune).

In fact, to add to this point, it is neat how Oasis have airbrushed their history. It is notable that the first sycophant in the booklet excludes the whole of Be Here Now and instead goes on to Oasis' latest stuff. Although this is high pretentiousness, it does make sense in a way to ignore the bad bits, or the reminders of the bad bits (e.g. Gas Panic! and even Little By Little).

As a best of, the album does the job in that it shows a tempting morsel of the best and sacrifices the ones that may taint the picture even if they were Great. I would also add that my favourite album is Standing on the Shoulders (which is barely included) but I think its depth would be poorly spent on what should be an otherwise radiant collection.

  one of the best bands of the century!

there are some real gems and corkers on here I just still can't believe they have broke up! it would be great to have them back on the music scene as they are one of the most inspiring bands of all time but without Noel I just don't think that's possible they are a great band but every band has a natural lifeforce like a human needs a heart oasis need noel to be a success!

Every song on this album is superb but the omission of the brilliant non album single whatever, for me their best song, just stops it getting 5 stars

  Ingenius..

Lyrically brilliant,musically breathtaking and this is probably just the tip of the iceberg considering their extensive back catalogue..
Love em or hate em they're doing something right & that something is the music they so masterfully create..
In the past i could take them or leave them but since i got this and listened it through i definately (maybe) take them.
10/10

  Best Oasis album you can buy.

| | See all 8Matty8's reviews (35)

In my opinion Oasis are the best band in the world, therefore i would go as far as calling this the best album in the world. If your new to Oasis' music then this is the perfect album to buy. It has all of their best tracks and £7 for two discs is far from a rip off. This is a must for any music appreciators. You won't be able to stop playing it!

A a big Oasis fan, Stop The Clocks was a must buy for me. Even though i own all of their albums individually, the convenience of having the majority of their greatest hits whittled down to 18 tracks was enough to make me buy this album.

The track list is very good, including the band's biggest and most well known hits from over the last decade or so. A slight shame a few of my personal favourite tracks such as 'Don't Go Away' and 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' have been left out, but it is only two discs after all!

All in all, at four quid, you really can't go wrong. A must buy!

This album is a birlliant buy at £3.99 as it features most of oasis's greatest songs although there are a few absenses. I would recomend this album to any new oasis fan as this album contains all the tracks that will get you in to them properly
