Hooray for '90s excess. Britpop’s Mancunian heroes show off with a feast of sumptuous b-sides that could have easily anchored countless future albums. Still, where’s the fun in that? Whether it’s Noel Gallagher-fronted pearls of sorrowful indie pop (“Talk Tonight”, “Half the World Away”, “Going Nowhere”) or barrelling Liam-powered stormers (“Acquiesce”, Beatles cover “I Am The Walrus”), Masterplan embodies the captivating yin and yang at the heart of Oasis and serves as a lasting testament to a band with genius to burn.
