Oasis - (Whats The Story) Morning Glory
Wikipedia says….
(What’s the Story) Morning Glory? is the second studio album by the English rock band Oasis, released on 2 October 1995 by Creation Records. It was produced by Owen Morris and the group’s guitarist Noel Gallagher. It was their first album with drummer Alan White. The structure and arrangement style of the album were a significant departure from the group’s previous record Definitely Maybe. Noel Gallagher’s compositions were more focused in balladry and placed more emphasis on “huge” choruses,[1] with the string arrangements and more varied instrumentation on the record contrasting with the rawness of the group’s debut album.

The record propelled Oasis from being a crossover indie act to a worldwide rock phenomenon, and according to various critics, was a significant record in the timeline of British indie music.[2] The band’s most commercially successful release, (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? sold a record-breaking 347,000 copies in its first week on sale, spent 10 weeks at number one on the UK Albums Chart, and reached number four in the US Billboard 200. Singles from the album were successful in Britain, America and Australia: “Some Might Say” and “Don’t Look Back in Anger” reached number one in the UK; “Champagne Supernova” and “Wonderwall” reached number one on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart; and “Wonderwall” topped the Australian and New Zealand singles charts.[3]
