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.

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.

NME
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.

Something about this album makes me nostalgic for a scene I never participated in. Every song is a 10/10, the instrumentation is perfect, Champagne Supernova is perhaps the best finale one could hope for. If you avoid their later albums after listening to this, you can imagine why Oasis was considered as good (if not better) than Radiohead back in the day in Britain.
