Oasis: Dig Out Your Soul


Due to time constrains, I will have to economize on speech more than usual.
I have been listening to Oasis' new album Dig Out Your Soul.
Basically, once you're an Oasis fan, you'll continue to be an Oasis fan. If nothing else, these guys get full credit for consistency. Moreover, they are the kind of rock band that manages to reinvent itself within the bounds of their unique sound habits and endemic shenanigans.
Dig Out Your Soul is solidly rock&roll. I have been listening to it the same time as Keane's A Perfect Symmetry and since the latter is quickly becoming a high frequency playlist, my appreciation of Oasis has suffered a bit. Overall, I remain a faithful listener, though.
The bottom line is if you have liked their previous work, you won't be unpleasantly shocked by the new project. In sum, yes, they remain adorably obnoxious; no, they have not forgotten their deep reverence for the Beatles. Some of the tracks I'm liking the best are:
1) I'm outta time
and
2) Waiting for Rapture
