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.

A series of swaggeringly sentimental new national anthems.

Entertainment Weekly

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

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.
