40 Songs, 3 Hours 37 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded when they were the biggest band in the world, Oasis’ third album shows the rock stars embracing decadence. Removed from the inflated expectations of the era, this expanded reissue highlights some of the band’s best overlooked songs, including the charged-up power pop of “I Hope, I Think, I Know,” as well as “Stay Young,” previously hidden as a B-side. “D’You Know What I Mean” shows the band’s psychedelic pop at its weightiest, but the demos—recorded at Mick Jagger’s villa on the private island of Mustique—shed the sonic density of Abbey Road to reveal a set of Noel Gallagher’s leanest and sweetest writing.
