Considering that this is a B sides LP, it is of an incredibly high standard and is probably their third best record. They always were a band that produced excellent B sides and this really highlights what an excellent band Oasis were at this stage of their career.

Essential track - Acquiesce


The bsides are better than the whole discography after the first two albums


Acquiesce - 10/10
Underneath the Sky - 10/10
Talk Tonight - 10/10
Going Nowhere - 10/10

The Swamp Song - 10/10
I Am the Walrus (Live) - 7/10
Listen Up - 10/10
Rockin' Chair - 10/10
Half the World Away - 10/10
(It's Good) To Be Free - 8/10
Stay Young - 10/10

The Masterplan - 10/10

Initial rating: 74


i am the walruuuuuus (no me lo banco que tema insoportable), pero again, temones. me van: going nowhere, listen up, talk tonight, half the world away, etc!! totalmente disfrutable, por ahora los 3 albumes de oasis. es ponerlos ahi y chillear, muy tranqui y disfrutable


includes some of my favourite work from oasis and overall of all time, one of if not the best compilations from all the artists ever, love this (oasis make no bad songs) (last statement was an overexaggeration)
notable songs: the whole compilation


It still amazes me that a B-Sides compilation kicks the ass of the previous studio album released in a band's discography. The Masterplan is a fantastic listen. It flows incredibly well and brings a whole new perspective to these incredible tracks.
