Oasis Top Poll Of Best British Albums

by | 18 February 2008

Two records by OASIS have been voted the best British albums ever in a new poll.

The Manchester five-piece's debut release DEFINATELY MAYBE took the number one spot, while (WHAT'S THE STORY) MORNING GLORY was second in Q magazine and HMV's survey.

A further two albums by the Britpop band secured places in the top 25 – DON'T BELIEVE THE TRUTH and BE HERE NOW.

Q editor, Paul Rees, said: "It's clear that, having polled three times more votes than any other act, Oasis are undoubtedly the nation's most loved band. Similarly, it's evident just who music fans believe the classic and most enduring British acts of each era to be."

Other bands featured in the list were RADIOHEAD who completed the top three with their 1997 album OK COMPUTER.

Liverpool legends the BEATLES had five releases in the top 50 including SERGEANT PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND and REVOLVER.

Recent releases by the ARCTIC MONKEYS, AMY WINEHOUSE, who was the only female inclusion, and KEANE were also featured on the list.

Meanwhile, OASIS's front man LIAM GALLAGHER recently tied the knot with his long-term love, NICOLE APPLETON of ALL SAINTS fame.

The pair were married at the Old Marleybone Town Hall – the venue for PAUL MCCARTNEY's marriage to LINDA and the site of Liam's previous nuptials to actress PATSY KENSIT.

Guests included the couple's two sons, Nicole's sister and former band mate NATALIE APPLETON and her husband PRODIGY rocker LIAM HOWLETT.

Liam's brother and bandmate Noel was a notable absentee – he is thought to be in Los Angeles working on a new album.
