AllMusic

It might not have the immediate impact of Definitely Maybe, but Morning Glory is just as exciting and compulsively listenable.

This album is an absolute essential if you like just plain old Rock N' Roll. If you like catchy stuff, then this album is a top buy. Seriously, there are not many people who I would not reccomend this album to. My words simply don't do it justice.

Q Magazine
A series of swaggeringly sentimental new national anthems.

Entertainment Weekly
An earnest, relaxed undertaking that is less about making a splash and more about making a point.

PopMatters

Some of the disc's influence and adoration can be attributed solely to the band's popularity, but, in truth, the reason they got popular was due to the fact that their own brand of self-aggrandizing Beatles worship proved to be as relatable as it was artistically potent.

Pitchfork

What’s most striking about listening to (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? today is how, at the height of their powers, Oasis seemed to be bracing for their own eventual downfall.

Rolling Stone

(What's the Story) Morning Glory? is more than a natural progression; it's a bold leap forward that displays significant musical and personal growth, not to mention a far greater familiarity with the Fab Four's back catalog.

This is an album which sends them off in an altogether different direction; away from conscience-free overloaded hedonism towards an understanding of its consequences.

There are some highlights on this album but Liam's voice is grating. Almost got a headache from listening to it, but some of the songs bring back some cherished memories. Oasis is one of those bands that I can sing along to, that I love some songs individually, that have aspect I adore. But too much Oasis in one sitting is not something I'd be comfortable with.

(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

(What’s the Story) Morning Glory? is a logical continuation of their debut record, with the anthemic nature of their songs coming out even more often than it did on Definitely, Maybe. The issue with Morning Glory is that it is an album that took Beatles inspiration to Beatles knock off, at least from my perspective. It was a little tongue-in-cheek early on, but the group seemed to bring something different to the table on their first outing. A song like Don’t Look Back in Anger is ... read more

(What's the Story) Morning Glory? is the sophomore album of Oasis. Their debut album is one of my favorite debut albums of all time. The second album is better than the first, in fact it is a perfect album. This album is more melodic, sometimes psychedelic and generally better in every way. Songs like Wonderwall and Cast No Shadow show a softer and a more vulnerable side like Live Forever did on the first LP. Some Might Say and Morning Glory are awesome rock tracks that have the same ... read more
