To brand this a landmark of the '90s is a disservice to its quality. OK Computer is as relevant now as ever, both culturally and sonically.
Riding the crest of an unprecedented popular rise, veins caked thick with drugs, Oasis produced something profoundly overblown in their third album.
Rock and roll delivered with swagger is such a buzz, and that’s the game on Definitely Maybe. It's relentless, unstoppable, and totally mad fer it.
