    A band I have warmed to over the past 5 years or so. Hated them at first, mainly because I though they (along with a number of other bands from the UK at the time) carried on like knobs. They certainly wrote some good songs though.

    Now, of course, I think Liam Gallagher is a genius because he said this about You Am I - "they're so fookin' good, I want to put 'em on me mantlepiece". The man is obviously a genius mascarading as the village idiot.

    I had them at #4 myself, which I think is the closest my own ranking has come to matching CW's.
    Thanks mate. It's clearly too long but I kept chopping and changing it, had the luxury of being inspired by other write-ups that the rest of you weren't afforded. Tried to paint a true picture of the band while conveying exactly what they mean to me.

    RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.

    Actually only had them down at 16, on another day I'd easily put them in the top 10, especially after a write up like that.

    I'm actually one of the freaks who A) likes Be Here Now .
    I absolutely love that album, have had it on in the car the past couple of weeks. It just had the mis-fortune to be following WTSMG which was the favourite of the masses. Personally and I know this is controversial, I would have it number 2 behind DM on my all-time Oasis album list.

    Oasis is a band I certainly love and have a lot of time for, would have had them slightly lower but what the hell. I have always had a lot of time for Oasis as lyricists, underrated in that department, IMO. Simple but so very easy to relate to. Gun band, have stopped listening to them this year, should listen more often.

    Wouldn't be 2nd for me but I do really like it. Can see why people don't, but the problem isn't the tunes, just the way it was produced.

    Yes, great write-up Martyn, obviously heart-felt. Have to say I stopped listening after Be Here Now - partly as I moved to the States in 1998, where they certainly didn't have the same generation-defining standing as back home, but partly because I didn't really like that album, apart from Fade In/Out.

    Almost a brilliant write-up but glaring failure to mention Paul McGuigan's literary career ruined it

    Ha, co-wrote a bio about Robin Friday, didn't he?
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
