Episode 277: The Best Tambourine Album of the 90s

On the TFT Podcast, we listen to and discuss Oasis’s breakthrough sophomore album, “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory.”

Ryan and Matt revert to a rivalry every bit as antagonistic as Noel and Liam Gallagher, whose breakthrough second album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory is the subject of this episode.

    “Stones in the front, Beatles in the back” is a fascinating characterization. For my money, Oasis is certainly rock, as are other tuneful bands like the Beatles, Barenaked Ladies, Fountains of Wayne, etc. To me pop feels like something that belongs in the studio and could never be replicated live (at least sonically). A Lady Gaga song doesn’t feel like the product of a live band, whereas Wonderwall totally does.

      Oasis definitely has a pop sentimentality, but in some ways it’s best expressed in the vocal melodies rather than the guitars. Listen to the blues-y melodic inflections scattered throughout the album. Examples:

      “TO-day is gonna be the day…”
      “SLIP inside the eye of your mind…”
      “You gotta ROLL with it…”

      I could be wrong, but I feel like this is much more often something you see in rock versus pop.
