Win Oasis’ ‘Be Here Now’ on vinyl
Be Here Now arrived two years after Oasis’ blockbuster second album, (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?, which would later be crowned the UK’s best-selling album of the 1990s.
Be Here Now initially looked set to equal the success of its predecessor, debuting at number one in the UK and Australia, and number two on the US Billboard 200. However, in contrast to the radio-friendly nature of the Morning Glory track listing, Be Here Now quickly earned a reputation as an unwieldy body of work.
Take, for instance, the album’s first single, ‘D’You Know What I Mean?’, which runs for seven minutes and forty-two seconds. If that wasn’t enough, the album’s third single, ‘All Around the World’, runs for no fewer than nine minutes and twenty seconds.
Whether one regards the druggy repetitiveness of Be Here Now as a good or bad thing really depends on individual taste. But Be Here Now remains an apt representation of the unmitigated excess that characterised Oasis’ commercial peak.
To be in with a chance to win, simply email [email protected] with Oasis Vinyl Giveaway in the subject line and a one sentence review of the album. The best two will win.
