Oasis : Stop Crying Your Heart Out

...it's mildly disappointing...

Oh, good. It's another one of Oasis' motivational therapy songs, the kind of platitudinous ballad where Liam tells us to hold on, not to be scared, you can't change the past and so "inspirationally" on.



Not only is self-help from the Gallaghers a bit hard to swallow but after the reheated blood of ‘The Hindu Times', it's mildly disappointing, treading the lukewarm waters around ‘Don't Look Back In Anger'.



Looked at in the sober light of day, it's nothing but a lachrymose slur through the Big Noel Book Of Emotional Cliches and some truly shameless piano, but you just know that come closing time, it could make a breeze block cry. And there lies Oasis' eternal magic, damn them.
