Conclusion

Pro-social Content

"Don't Look Back in Anger" points out the destructiveness of bottled-up anger, and that material things will fade away. Other tracks ("Some Might Say," "Cast No Shadow," "Hey Now!") are thought-provokingly philosophical, but fail to offer real answers to life's questions.

Objectionable Content

The singer looks forward to getting drunk and high on "Champagne Supernova" (not surprising considering the songwriter's creative formula of "me and a guitar and a bottle of Jack Daniels" [USA Today, 2/24/95]). A profanity mars "Hello." "Roll with It" advises against self-sacrifice ("don't ever be denied . . . don't let anybody get in your way . . . don't ever stand aside").

Summary Advisory

It's an improvement over the band's last album, Definitely Maybe, but these British rockers still need to make changes, lyrically. In addition, their concerts and private lives have been characterized by much-publicized arrogance and excursions into vice. What's the story? Oasis needs to clean up its act.
