An Oasis in the Snow

I just got a copy of Oasis' latest release: the 2 CD "best of" collection titled Stop the Clocks. Although any Oasis fan will have complaints about ommisions, a good number of their obvious crowd-pleasers are here: Rock 'N' Roll Star, Wonderwall, Live Forever, Champagne Supernova, etc... Sprinkled in with the hits are a few b-sides (also found on their previous album, The Masterplan).

I don't think I need to make any comments on brotherly love (Noel chose the songs and order for this affair) or Beatles comparisons. I don't think anything I can say will convince you to like Oasis if you don't already. Since there is nothing really new here, I don't think I can get you to buy this album if you already have all of their previous releases. I would suggest this 2 CD album if you don't have all of their super-hits, or if you are looking for a special non-denominational holiday gift for someone special. Nothing says "I Love You" like an Oasis CD!
