it was thelast time bonehead and crew was in the band and last time Noel wrote his own stuff(without help)
I dont get why Noel slated it. maybe it was his most honest and he heard a few critics stating it. yes it was over produced, so what...
people say it was the death of 'brit pop' - and oasis. well yes because oasis went in other directions and despite the greta b sides (masterplan) the other albums after were sh-te.
but Noel changed the style because he couldnt deal with it. I think it was to honest forhim. Great rythm guitarist , melody maker, not the best lyricist. this is oasis raw though. and i think he tried and the lyrics whilst no doherty or dylan they are not are his best ever..
he couldnt deal with it. blamed it on drugs - bollox.
dont go away, stand by me, and the b's are the best they ever wrote.
