Masterplan - Oasis

Definitely. They get a bad rep, but I think there are 10-20 Oasis songs that qualify as perfect or near perfect, with another 30-40 that are flat out excellent. The quality of the songs they just threw away to be used as B-Sides is staggering.

Still blows my mind that they made Masterplan a B-side. But that's Oasis for ya I guess; so much talent, yet so many issues.
