Oasis
Don’t Believe the Truth
(sony)
Don’t Believe the Truth is the sixth studio release from the recently retooled Oasis — only the brothers Gallagher remain from the original lineup. As with the majority of Oasis’s previous releases, Don’t Believe the Truth is inconsistent; it lacks the ferocity with which Live Forever stormed North American shores and the talent of the sophomore release What’s The Story (Morning Glory). The saving graces, however, of Don’t Believe the Truth can found on tracks such as “Guess God Thinks I’m Abel,” the lead single “Lyla” and the amazing “Let There Be Love.” It is on these tracks that the band manages to eschew its self-indulgent instrumentals in exchange for the addictive pop melodies that helped to establish Oasis as a household name in the first place.
