Really good album although not their best. A few songs in it aren't that good

Top stuff from Oasis again. Hindu Times is the best track IMO
Why all the harsh critics?
The songs on this album are good all the way through. Taking Standing on the Shoulder of Giants for example, a lot of the songs are poor. Going through this however, you have Stop Crying Your Heart Out, Little By Little, She is Love and even songs like Born On A Different Cloud (a really underrated song in my opinion) for example. The thing though is what many critics and fans have touched upon. All Oasis albums have a different attitude and style that is not put into Heathen Chemistry but I still think it unfair to be too harsh on an album just because of that. I would rather have an album full of good songs than an album with poor songs with attitude. But that is the price you pay when you write the two best albums ever written; you will have high expectations thrust upon you. So don't get on the boys too much as it is still a great album- not as good as the first two obviously- but a great album nevertheless
Oasis MKII first album
Good effort, better than their last not as good as their next. Great great songs, poor direction and production. Could have been amazing. The singles are superb.

What Is The Point In Having A Long Blank Gap Between Hidden Songs On An Album, It's Just A Waste Of Time And Space On The Disc
Damn Oasis are good.
I heard 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' at the end of 'The Butterfly Effect' (epic film) and I just had to have it.
Another one of my favourites in there is 'Songbird'.
Epic album. Even if it is old.
There is no weak track on the album and there are plenty of awesome songs and lyrics in wich make it a good album

Not bad at all
I do detest reviews that give an 'ok' or 'good' album 5-stars (i.e. suggesting it's among the best albums ever) accompanied by comments like 'Oasis - best band ever' or 'Songbird - best song ever'. I mean, come on, grow up a little. Saying that, Heathen Chemistry is a good album. Hindu Times, Songbird and Stop Crying are great pop songs, and up there with some of Oasis' best. Liam's contributions certainly help raise the quality of the album with the stomping Better Man and dark Born On A Different Cloud too. But then there are those all too familiar weak points. God only knows why the drab She Is Love got chosen in favour of the B-Side 'Shout It Out Loud' (from the Stop Crying Your Heart Out), and All In The Mind is a back-up at best. I wouldn't recommend this album for newcomers to the world of Oasis - Morning Glory and Be Here Now are there for that. But all in all, it's ok.
This is a good solid album from the Gallaghers.
Personally, I think that the Demo version of "The Hindu Times" should have been on the album, but there you go. "Songbird" is a great comeback from Liam, following the catastrophy of "Little James" on SOTSOG.
good album, worth a look and at less than a fiver, it's a good investment.
