'STOP THE CLOCKS' ~ 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 Clocks' is imbued with the sort of willfulness that has helped make Oasis the favorite 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 November 21, 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
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.
"There could have been more but these 18 songs, spinning in and out of no natural order, through 12 unforgettable years, are the songs the whole world sings, and will sing forever, songs which define the very point of being alive, which fill our souls with hope, escape, friendship, love, laughter, sex, beauty, oblivion, and the timeless freedom of the rock n roll dream itself. These could be the best days of our lives. And they were. And they still are." (Sylvia Patterson)
