Description

Having both become fathers since the release of 1997's BE HERE NOW, Liam and Noel Gallagher have cut back on the carousing and ironically made Oasis's fourth album the most psychedelic one to date. Overseen by Massive Attack/Bjork producer Mark "Spike" Stent, STANDING ON THE SHOULDER OF GIANTS, finds the larger-than-life sound of the Brothers Gallagher sprinkled with a light dusting of drum loops, samples, electric sitar, Mellotron, and backward guitar. As always, the Beatles continue to loom large as influences, particularly on the "Hey Jude"-like "Little James," Liam's songwriting debut. The track was written with Simple Minds' Jim Kerr and is dedicated to Liam's son. Elsewhere, the obvious Indian influence of "Who Feels Love" suggests "Dear Prudence" had George Harrison written it instead of John and Paul.

At different points, GIANTS finds Oasis flirting with the Madchester sound of the Happy Mondays and Stone Roses. "Gas Panic!" and "Roll It Over" point to the morning-after vibe of vintage Primal Scream while "Fuckin' in the Bushes" sounds like a lost Charlatans UK track. Despite all the experimentation, the lads from Manchester firmly hold onto their Brit-pop crown with thumping numbers like "Liar" and "Go Let It Out!"
