Why am I reviewing an Oasis album if it’s Blur week, you might ask. Well, probably not. The feud between Oasis and Blur during the mid-90s was well established at the time and remains one of the most well recognized feuds in musical history. It was a battle of two bands trying to be the answer to what America was doing for rock music in the UK.

Another feel-good album to listen at as much as you'd like to.
