While calling it a rebirth might be a little strong, this disc certainly packs more life than anything these rambunctious Brits have released in quite some time -- precisely because it finds them embracing the chaos that marked discs like (What's the Story) Morning Glory. Thanks to the fact that the Gallagher brothers are splitting songwriting relatively evenly, there's a welcome diversity -- one that places Liam's still-simmering Beatlemania -- most evident on the summery "Love Like a Bomb" -- against the darker offerings of brother Noel, which come to a head on the menacingly Velvets-like "Mucky Fingers." The band have also mustered up a good bit of the brutish energy that once accompanied their every move; "The Meaning of Soul," for instance, blows by in two minutes of stormy attitude and wailing harmonica. Oasis's other members get in on the action a bit more this time around as well, with Andy Bell contributing a pair of tracks -- the best being "Keep the Dream Alive," which waxes reflective until a searing guitar solo cuts through the mix -- and Gem Archer tossing in the upbeat "A Bell Will Ring." There are certainly echoes of Oasis past on Don't Believe the Truth, but for the first time in ages, the band sound like they're enthusiastic about -- and readily capable of -- moving forward. Believe that!
