Oasis "Stop the Clocks" hits album this year

“STOP THE CLOCKS” The definitive collection as chosen by the band !
25 July 2006

Oasis have been at the helm of the worlds music scene for over ten years and, on November 20th 2006 the first ever Oasis retrospective will draw together the years of multi platinum albums, Number One singles and, unique to Oasis, instantly familiar B sides into one 18 track double album entitled Stop the Clocks. Furthermore, this collection has been chosen by the band themselves - the songs they believe encapsulate their remarkable career to date.

Oasis are widely regarded as the defining rock n roll band of the last decade, bestriding the music world since the release of debut single, Supersonic in 1994 to the current day whilst claiming a host of records for their own. Second album, What's The Story, (Morning Glory), from which several of the tracks here are drawn, remains the highest ever certified album at 14 x platinum whilst their combined album sales total close to, a remarkable 40 million sales worldwide.

Unlike most albums of this nature, Oasis have sat down and undertaken the almost impossible job of picking what they consider to be their finest moments ever. So Stop The Clocks is imbued with the sort of wilfulness that has helped make Oasis the favourite band of millions of people worldwide and its running order will no doubt provoke equal parts adulation and bar discussions from the millions of Oasis fans worldwide. Could it ever be any other way?

Stop The Clocks includes the definitive greatest B side ever, Acquiesce, evoking memories of the White Room performance that so many regard as Oasis greatest music television moment. Also present is Half The World Away, another B side that became instantly recognisable to all in the UK for its use as the theme music of TVs The Royle Family.

Then come the singles, a stream of contemporary classics starting with Supersonic and moving on to anthems such as Wonderwall, as well as more recent moments such as The Importance of Being Idle. These songs explain in an instant why Oasis remain cover stars worldwide as well as being continuously name checked by contemporary bands as their greatest influence.

Having spent 10 months on the road in support of the 2 million selling Don't Believe The Truth, Stop the Clocks is released as Oasis take a well earned sabbatical prior to starting work on new material, destined for similar levels of success in the future. As such, this is not a full stop, but merely a time out; a dream set list, and a chance for the world to review the immense contribution that Oasis have made and continue to make to rock n roll. Stop The Clocks - the definitive collection, chosen by the band.
I haven't seen the full tracklisting anywhere though.

I already have all of their albums, so if there is nothing new, I am not buying. However, this would be a great buy if you do not have any Oasis CDs.

I'll probably pick it up just because I'm a huge fan, but it would be great if the song "Stop the Clocks" was actually on there too. I heard a lot about it several years ago, but I don't know if it actually exists. Some sources claimed it was Noel Gallagher's finest achievement, but as far as I know, a recording never actually surfaced anywhere. I'm curious, but I won't hold my breath. I'm assuming the above source originated in Europe but hopefully this will get released in the U.S. as well.

Same here. Sadly, they will probably under-represent my favorite album Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants. This is a very often dismissed and under-rated Oasis album - IMHO.

I look forward to a track listing. Thanks for the heads-up!

Still a lot of good b-side tunes that they could have included, such as:

The Fame
Heroes (Noel on vocals)
(I Got) The Fever
My Sister Lover
Round Are Way

The official tracklisting hasn't been announced yet - the official website is holding a contest to guess the tracklist, which ends September 10th. So the official tracklisting won't be out until probably mid September.

From the tracklist, it's an easy decision for me to ignore when it comes out.

Not a shock considering that Noel has all but disowned that album. I don't recall them playing much live from it recently either.

Still, that plus the lack of any new songs means this Oasis fan will most likely pass.

Yeah, disappointing that there's nothing new. I sort of had my hopes up that there would be at least one or two new tracks. Oh well. I suppose it's not a bad collection for those that don't already own much oasis in general. Maybe if it's like $9.99 at Best Buy or something I'll pick it up for the artwork.

After much speculation Oasis announce the final track listing for their definitive collection Stop The Clocks.

Unlike most albums of this nature, Oasis have sat down and undertaken the almost impossible job of picking what they consider to be their finest moments ever. So Stop The Clock is imbued with the sort of wilfulness that has helped make Oasis the favourite band of millions of people worldwide and its running order will no doubt provoke equal parts adulation and bar discussions from the millions of Oasis fans worldwide. Could it ever be any other way? Oasis have been at the helm of the world's music scene for over ten years and, on 20th November 2006 the first ever Oasis retrospective will draw together the years of multi platinum albums, Number One singles and, unique to Oasis, instantly familiar B sides into one 18 track double album entitled Stop the Clocks.

So here it is. The tracks as chosen by the band themselves - the songs they believe encapsulate their remarkable career to date.

Rock n Roll Star
Some Might Say
Talk Tonight
Lyla
The Importance of Being Idle
Wonderwall
Slide Away
Cigarettes & Alcohol
The Masterplan
Live Forever
Acquiesce
Supersonic
Half The World Away
Go Let It Out
Songbird
Morning Glory
Champagne Supernova
Don't Look Back In Anger
Horrible tracklisiting. Songs that were never singles, B-sides that have already had their own album, no new/unreleased material and an entire album ("Be Here Now") is ignored. Many hits are also excluded like "All Around the World" which was a UK #1. I just don't get it at all.

The track listing is not that bad, but it should have Don't Go Away and Stand by Me. Nevertheless, this is a pointless release if you already own all of their CDs.

How hard is it to include unreleased or new songs and a bonus DVD with videos or a concert?

We just got a promo of "Stop the Clocks" in at work today. The liner notes looked pretty cool and there were even some lyrics to the unreleased track of the same name. I was hoping for a hidden bonus track at the end or something, but no such luck. Maybe it'll be on their next album.
