Released back in 2006, Arctic Monkeys are probably the best that rock had since The Strokes. This is a basic album for anyone who loves indie rock music. The Arctic Monkeys found their best sounds here, even when this was their first album! almost all the tracks are a masterpiece. Starting from A Certain Romance, a perfect tune for a sporty sunday morning, or a great beginning for your weekend, this tune will certainly make you feel good. From the Ritz to the Rubble gives me chills, it’s such a great tune! I bet you look good on the dancefloor is a track that will be remembered in the next generations, Mardy Bum is the perfect relaxing and sarcastic song that could be used to upset your girlfriend, Perhaps Vampires is A Bit Strong But…, Red Lights Indicates Doors are Secured, Riot Van, Still take you home and finally When The Sun Goes Down, what can i say? i love almost all the tunes in this album, maybe i listened too much, or maybe and more probably they are great.

Coldplay and Ghost Stories. Their new album has the collaboration from musical monsters like Avicii, Timbaland, Madeon, and the incredible Jon Hopkins! Written at a time when Chris Martin was having a difficult time with his love, i think that this will influence very well the lyrics and the feeling in the songs.
When i began to listen to the album, the first tune called “Always on my head” had the style of the albums previous to Mylo Xyloto, like the style that they had in X & Y or A Rush of Blood to the Head. The second tune “Magic” has great beats! i liked it a lot. I listened the following tracks and the next one that like me was “Midnight”, i can hear the sounds of a track from Jon Hopkins clearly, a very ethereal song, perfect for listening at 3 am in the morning! Another song that i liked was “Oceans”, again this tune remind me the style they had back in their first album “Parachutes”.

This is the fourth studio album from Oasis, with a clear reference to The Beatles. At that time Oasis had lost two founding members (Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs and Paul “Guigsy” McGuigan) and this lost changed their classic sound into a more elaborated one.“The album is an effective modern psychedelic record complete with drum loops, samples, electric sitar, mellotron, synthesizers and backward guitars, resulting in an album more experimental with electronica and heavy psychedelic rock influences. Songs such as “Go Let It Out“, the Indian-influenced “Who Feels Love?“, and the progressive “Gas Panic!” were a departure from the band’s earlier style.” And you can feel it perfectly in the first tune “Fuckin’ in the Bushes”, a song that has no lyrics just samples. Little James is a cheerful tune besides that the lyrics talks about a lost from a child, i don’t know why but it has good lyrics on it. Definitely Sunday Morning Call is the best tune in the album, and definitely is one song that will pass the time and will become a classic. It was a darker album possibly reflecting the times, or perhaps reflecting the loss of two original members. Noel said: “Even though it wasn’t our finest hour, it’s a good album born through tough times. I worked harder on that album than anything before and anything since.“

Be Here Now is the best album in the discography of Oasis, at least for me. I feel that they have the sound of the nineties in every album, but specially in this one. It is very similar to Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club band from The Beatles and the album is filled with references to the Fab 4. Actually, the album is named “Be Here Now” because that was what John Lennon said when asked to put a phrase to the 60’s era. I have to say that from the first song to the end all the album is chained in a very good way. Stand by me, a song that will pass the generations, and All Around The World is a song that is a classic now, both of the later are now anthems. If you like the late 90s and early 00’s music this will be a great album for you. “If you start a band and you don’t wanna be like The Beatles, then there’s no reason to start a band”.

23 Years Ago Oasis released their first album and they showed a great potential with 4 songs: Rock and Roll Star show the characteristic guitar riff and the scream that Noel Gallaguer does when he sing. Live Forever is so 90’s that i get transported to that time every time i listen to this great song. Supersonic is another great classic tune! And finally i will always love Slide Away, the lyrics are amazing, you can sing it to your loved one, is just perfect! And the guitar riff at the middle kills me. Definitely Maybe is a Definitely One to Have!
