Honestly, why do people hate this album? Sure, you can hear the cocaine oozing from every pore, and it's silly and over-egged and has an outrageously inflated opinion of itself... but that's why I think it's brilliant. I mean, silly and over-egged with an outrageously inflated opinion of itself was surely the whole point of Oasis? And therefore, surely that makes 'Be Here Now' Oasis In Excelsis?
Besides which, the tunes are massive. Honestly, they are. I'm listening to it now. 'I Hope I Think I Know'. Like, yeah!!!
Their 2nd best album, IMHO.
