Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants

Standing on the Shoulder of Giants is the fourth studio album by the English rock band Oasis, released on February 28, 2000. In 1999, the year preceding the final release of this album, Oasis had lost two founding members (Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs and Paul “Guigsy” McGuigan) and hired a new producer (Mark “Spike” Stent) to replace Owen Morris. As a result of these changes, the album’s tone was more experimental, with electronica and psychedelic influences. The darker feeling and psychedelic tone of this album was a noticeable departure from their straight ahead rock and roll style of the 90’s.
Songs such as the Indian-influenced “Who Feels Love?”, the progressive “Gas Panic!” and the electronica “Go Let It Out” were a departure from the band’s earlier style. The album was the sixth fastest selling album in UK chart history, selling over 310,000 copies in its first week. Despite becoming their fourth number one album in the UK, it is also one of the band’s lowest-selling albums, selling 3 million copies worldwide.
