(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)
Album Title: Don’t believe the truth
Year released: 2005
Year reissued: 2016
Details: Gatefold, 180 gram
The skinny: Oasis’s sixth album is currently the final piece of theirs in my vinyl collection and is likely my favourite of their albums, outside of the first two of course. When it came out, I still hadn’t completely warmed to “Heathen chemistry” and upon hearing “Don’t believe the truth”, was immediately enamoured. It sounded to me like the band had been revitalized. There’s just so much energy in tracks like the one below, it felt like the boys were back. And not just in town.
Standout track: “Lyla”
