Which is Better: Morning Glory or Definitely Maybe

You Decide: Which album do you like more Definitely Maybe or Morning Glory?

I know what you’re thinking. I like them both. Or, maybe not and I’ve got a wrong opinion of you which is nothing really because we’ve never met.

Or have we? 

Regardless of that fact how do you decide which is better? It’s personal preference of course. No one is right, and no one is wrong when it comes to your tastes. Unless of course you like Dave Matthews Band which in that case means: seek therapy.

“Music press” like to point to total album sales as the be all end all gauge of quality when doing comparisons.  The other they use is chart positions if that ever really mattered. It doesn’t. Now this is not the deciding reason why I believe it doesn’t but The Stone Roses never had a #1 of anything. Think about that next time you think the charts are the indicator towards what is good and bad: They don’t. Lets move on.

In this corner we have Definitely Maybe. Tracks on it are: Live Forever, Cigarette’s and Alcohol, Slide Away, Supersonic, and of course Rock’n’ Roll Star. A monster to be sure.

In the other corner we have the album What’s the Story Morning Glory by Oasis with tracks like Morning Glory, Wonderwall, Don’t Look Back in Anger, Some Might Say, and Champage Supernova. Holy Smeg.

By the old measures they both sold millions and both were #1. On top of that both had songs that were played until the very end live for Oasis. In addition to that both are on the “best of list” for nearly every website and magazine around the world. So how do you choose? Again I highlight the personal preference.

You tell me. Which do you prefer today?
