About this deal

One of the times they somewhat succeeded treading into new territory on SOTSOG. Oasis had been brash, jubilant, and exciting- but never really brooding. This was their first and possibly only stab into that space, to modest results. Reed, Mark (11 July 2002). "Album Review: Oasis – Heathen Chemistry". Drowned in Sound.

In an age filled with songs about hating oneself and wanting to die, it was almost daring to bring optimism to the radio. But the public latched onto it- maybe it was the anthem they didn’t know they needed.

When I was a teenager surfing the Oasisinet.com message boards I met a woman in her twenties from Buenos Aires. I lied and said I was also in my twenties, and we managed to bridge the language gap enough to become internet friends. I thought she was the coolest person ever. I had somehow managed to miss Slide Away on Definitely Maybe (I was early into my Oasis-listening career at the time) and she turned me onto it. It was her favorite song. I wonder what she’s up to these days.

This song is caught somewhere between putting you in a hypnotic trance and punching you in the teeth. Columbia proves Oasis doesn’t just talk the talk, they walk the walk.

Retrieved 14 January 2021.The Gallagher brothers are notoriously surly toward their fans. “I don’t have to be nice to people because they dig my music,” Noel told Rolling Stone. “I don’t live my life to have my picture taken by fans. I’m not asking them to buy records. They buy them because they like them.” When Heathen Chemistry came out, Noel famously proclaimed it was the band’s second best album behind Definitely Maybe. He was, of course, catastrophically wrong. But The Hindu Times was a fairly strong opener- it’s just that it never got much better from there.
