Santa is Here to Give You the New Oasis Album 'Don't Believe the Truth' - Streamed

Scenestars has made the stream of the entire album available to you. Go to scenestars.net click on "Rachel's" radio option at the top and listen until your eyes curl back into your head. I'm so excited! I'll have a review for you later.

UPDATE:

Track by Track Review -
1 TURN UP THE SUN - Stranglers anyone? Jam anyone? Abbey Road anyone? I mean - this song lacks a little for being an opening track. Has a nice 30 second lead in though which is why it's the opener. The voice over on Liam is hot and I don't think they can fit any more guitars in there. I would love to hear this song stripped down.
Lyrics to Love - "Come on turn up the sun. Turn it up for everyone. Love one another."
7.5/10

2 MUCKY FINGERS - Say hello to the Beatles ladies and gentlemen. - - Lyrically - oddly enough - the song with the worst title - is my favorite song lyrically. This song sounds a good bit like a Bruce Springsteen song that never really gets going into a guitar solo at the right time. I love this song though. The harp is solid!
Lyrics to Love - "You get your mucky fingers burned. You get the truth off the lies you have learned. Walk on!'
8.8/10

3 LYLA - This is the single. They didn't want it to be the single but to be honest, I'm glad it is. It's not as aggressive as the other tracks. It's very 98' and it's what the record companies still want them to sound like. Wait until the next album when they are under their own label. I'm excited for that. BACK TO 10 minute songs!!!
Lyrics to Love - "I've waited for a thousand years for you to come and blow me out my mind."
8.2/10

4 LOVE LIKE A BOMB - This is a Liam tune. You can tell because it's short and it's lyrically well - - lyrically simply. He doesn't take a whole lot of chances outside of his own voices. It's ok.
Lyrics to Love - "La la la la la la"
5.5/10

5 THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING IDLE - This is one of my favorite tracks on the album. Noel singing with an acoustic guitar that turns into some weird tamborine hard rhyhtm section stuff. This reminds me of 'The Masterplan' mixed with 'Up in the Sky'. Actually this song sounds a good bit like "Flashbax".
Lyrics to Love - "I don't mind as long as there is a bed beneath the stars that shine. I'll be fine. If you give me a minute my bands gonna live it - I can't get it out if my hearts not in it!!! YEAHHH!"
9.5/10

6 THE MEANING OF SOUL - Meaning of soul sounds kinda forced and you can tell it's a Gem tune. It's not too bad. It could of have hit harder at the change but it's clean. This song would be awful live but they are gonna play it live. The harmonica is hot.
Lyrics to Love - "All right because I see the light in your eyes"
6.4/10

7 GUESS GOD THINKS I'M ABEL - This is really good as well. It's missing some heaviness but it's what Oasis is. It's simple lyrics about lovers and rock n' roll and whatever. Just damn catchiness is really what it is. He does however rhyme Rainbow with Abel - - hmm - - I think this is a song for Liam written by noel but who knows.
Lyrics to Love - "No one can break us, no one can take us"
8.1/10

8 PART OF THE QUEUE - This is a totally new sound for them. This is all Noel and you can tell he wanted this one for himself. It's a great song. It sounds like the Stranglers met the Kinks. The influences come out so thick in their songs. It actually uses the same vocal rhythm as "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald"
Lyrics to Love - "I'm having some trouble just finding some soul in this town."
7.8/10

9 KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE - One of those songs that you and your friends will like. If you are an Oasis fan - this is the song on the album that you and the other Oasis fans you know will want to hear the most. Trust me. This is driving music.
Lyrics to Love - "I'm at the crossroads waiting for a sign. My life is standing still but I'm still alive"...ugh
8.6/10

10 A BELL WILL RING - Guess who wrote this song? Andy Bell of course. It's like you can hear who writes what song without even thinking about it. I like this a lot but it's a little tight. It should have been looser but it'll be a good live song. It has that great Oasis first change - -
Lyrics to Love - "The sun will shine on you again. A bell will ring inside your head and all will be brand new. "
8.3/10

11 LET THERE BE LOVE - This is an old song that I can't believe other people don't remember. This was a b-side from Standing on the Shoulder of Giants. It has been remade with different lyrics but it has the same chorus and chords. It's a personal fave because it's acoustic and it's Liam. Liam's voice sounds great on this track. Plus it has both Noel and Liam singing - no other song has them going back and forth like this. Cheers!
Lyrics to Love - "Who kicked a hole in the sky so the heavens could cry over me? Let there be love. "
9.2/10

Throughout this entire album I kept thinking that these should have all been b-sides from back in 95. They all sound like that and if you are an Oasis fan you know that's good. This is the only band in history that put their best songs on b-sides - - on purpose too. I guess I'm just a fuckin Noel fan. I mean - I like that other guys are contributing and all but every Noel song is awesome!
