"...At the height of their respective popularities, Irish rock critics constantly made comparisons between Oasis and Aslan and, in a sense, Aslan were the Irish answer to the unelected spokesmen for Britain's frustrated working class. They shared very similar musical heritages, though Aslan were more clearly indebted to David Bowie and the Smiths than the Who and the Beatles. Released in 1997, Aslan's Here Comes Lucy Jones and Oasis' Be Here Now were uncannily similar at times- singles ‘Chains' and ‘Stand By Me' for instance- clairvoyant, even, as there seems to have been no contact between the groups at any point. One of For Some Strange Reason's standout tracks, ‘Sooner Or Later,' is the most reminiscent of this period, evoking Oasis' ‘Cast No Shadow' with strained chorus vocals, combined with Harrison-esque guitars, while the vitriolic ‘Sold Out For Fame' trudges along with hints of Noel Gallagher's overlooked gem ‘Where Did It All Go Wrong?'..."
