The past three years have been somewhat transitional for Oasis. Additional line-up reshuffles, scrapped recording sessions and the domesticity of the once-notorious Gallagher brothers have led to a more mature and settled Oasis sound that is evident in their brand new album, Dont Believe The Truth. Whilst all the indie-rock, borrowed Sixties-riffs and Manchester-flavoured swagger are still in attendance, this sixth offering from Oasis finds the band in a more reflective and melodic frame of mind.
From the chants of love one another on the slow-burn opener Turn Up The Sun, to the sombre The Importance Of Being Idle, where Noel reflects about the direction of life, to the Liam-penned Guess God Thinks Im Abel, a simplistic and effective summertime ramble of good intentions, Dont Believe The Truth commands our attention on profound levels not usual to an Oasis album. By the time we reach the album closer Let There Be Love, an acoustic track boasting vocals from both Noel and Liam, with just the most simplistic hand-clap rhythm and soaring strings, Oasis have convinced us that the last three years of turmoil have produced a band dynamic that is stronger than ever.
For those concerned that Oasis have slipped way too deep into the realm of Dad-rock, you will be pleased to hear that the Gallaghers can still produce some of the most infectiously catchy indie-rock around. From the psychedelic whirlpool of hit single Lyla, to the one and a half minute swagger of The Meaning Of Soul, by way of the magnificently-titled Mucky Fingers, Dont Believe The Truth provides the perfect balance between the ups and the downs.
With Dont Believe The Truth the widespread belief is that Oasis are back with an amazing album which will prove to be their strongest for a very long time. With the added bonus of selling out nearly half a million tickets for their forthcoming tour, the year ahead looks set to be an extraordinary one.
