(What’s The Story) Morning Glory is the smash-hit sophomore effort of Brit-Pop’s very own Oasis. The band is usually known for the band’s leads, Liam and Noel Gallagher, as they were twin brothers who were at a creative peak during this point in time and later did irreparable damage to their relationship ultimately disbanding the band. Before that occurred, they came out with this and it shows how amazingly talented the brothers and band members were at crafting their songs ... read more
