The first Oasis serious record. Under the crisis for members going away, Noel (mostly) & Liam managed to come up with the first non-commercial "The Verve-esque" album. Surely some mistakes from their own - including "Little James" as a track (not as a b-side) and having some b-sides not as album tracks ("Carry Us All"). The stunning track is the last one, "Roll it over", being one of the most of my favourite Oasis tracks ever. Poorly mastered, as any Oasis album manages to be, this one deserves a remaster treatment.

I think it's my favourite Oasis LP purely for the trippiness and on-point musicianship.

Who Feels Love? is a banger and Liam sounds great. Watch his recent Glastonbury performance singing Rock 'n Roll Star to see that he has now lost the energy for this type of music (too old and sober!)

This is a great album.
Some songs should have been b sides, while the b sides should have been on the album.
I love this one and YES even Little James. It's not great, but it's very trippy.
As far as I'm concerned it's a must own.
Roll It Over is one of their best songs

The psychedelia makes me love this album the most out of all Oasis releases.

In all seriousness, with few exceptions, bands who’ve managed to put out a string of four or more albums without collapsing under the sheer weight of stardom, internal rivalries, and touring pressures are few and far between. Of course there are those who want us to remember that their previous release Be Here Now was bloated and almost filled an entire CD, clocking in at 71 minutes. Yet these same people forget the magic of many of those tracks, seeming to waste a band who rose too quickly in the midst of the fledgling internet, and lack of any privacy. So yes, perhaps the band, the fans, and the record industry should have let things fall apart with Be Here Now, … though the truth was, too many people were making too much money, and they all wanted one more bite from the magic apple, before they let things pass away. And that leaves us with Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants.

With all of that being said and done, the album, even with a half finished feel is layered with raw emotion and pinpoint observations. Even if one concedes that most of these songs are merely fleshed out riffs, the songs are sung and presented far beyond their modest station, and filled with enchanting considered lyrics, worth contemplation and consideration. So take “Go Let It Out,” “Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is” or “Little James,” all tracks that return the band to a space of sure footedness, and are marvelously done.
Which means that right there, that’s half of an album that can not be trifled with or easily dismissed.

The album is truly a post modern psychedelic outing, one filled with heavy psychedelic rock influence [Hendrix style riffs] both musically and lyrically, experimental electronica, backwards guitars, synthesizers, a mellotron, electric sitar, and Indian influences … so I assure you, this is not an album that was created as a downward spiral swan song, Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants was a major undertaking for a group on the edge of the abyss.

In reality, perhaps Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants wasn’t the masterpiece that the band needed to put them on par with other bands who were now passing them by, but in the same light it was not the failure that so many would have you believe. The outing was a sincere effort to take the next step, filled with confidence and pop smarts. Yet even if Oasis had created the best and finest album of their career, it would not have been enough to hold a band together with a center [or centers] that would not support them. At the time, it seemed that their fate was sealed, it was either close down shop or implode like a super nova, leaving Oasis to walk deeper into the shadows with their final three albums.

*** The fun facts: The album's artwork features the photo of the Manhattan skyline taken from the rooftop of 500 5th Avenue (5th Ave/W 42nd St). Some famous buildings can be seen here, for example the Empire State Building is seen in front and the former World Trade Center is seen in the back. To create the cover photo, the photographer captured the same frame every half an hour in 18 hours during the whole day's course; the photos were digitally composited into the final picture. All of the singles released from this album contained artwork that was based on the album artwork; the shot used for "Go Let It Out" can be seen above one of the buildings at the front, which depicts five men playing football. This shot was taken from the roof of a football stadium, and the footballers from the car park were edited onto the rooftop on the final cover.

The album’s title was a quote from the famous Sir Issac Newton, “I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

I find it amusing that this album is starting to gain demand. When it came out it was rightly lauded as poor. Oasis were in a nutshell, off their heads for all the wrong reasons and not making their best music at all. Compared to their first two albums it was a downhill slide into very less than average music. Sure Noel Gallagher still could and can pen a properly decent tune here and there, and the band can play too, but this album was not good at all.
I remember seeing piles of this album in literally every record store in West London going for silly sale prices. Still no one was buying. Nostalgia purchase only. I bet it'll cost a fortune..

I recently purchased this lp and issue (rkdlp002x) and it had mark across side 1 rather large. Does or did anyone else have issues with this release ? The seller also stated new sealed but the plastic cover was resealable not shrink wrap. Any help or info on this would be appreciated.
