This album is balls. Sticky, fungusy, hairy balls.

Liam proves that Noel had all the songwriting talent. Even noel's talent left him in the end. All of the members of Oasis are now setting about destroying their legacy.

These songs are shite. I expect on an album from a band like this at least one stand out 'classic' type song. But there is NOTHING of the quality of even Lyla.

They took the Oasis sound, made it even more generic, added even worse lyrics (and the concepts MY GOD! Beatles and Stones, grow the fuck up Liam). Dig Out Your Soul should have been called Dig Out Your Grave, because I'd rather them have jumped in it after that dog turd of a record and save us all from hearing this trash.

Dig Out Your Soul was actually quite good. I mean, it had Falling Down and Soldier On, songs which on their own give the album a pass.

Didn't mind either of them, but the album as a whole was their worst by a fair margin, and marked a pretty rapid decline

Personally, it wasn't anywhere near as average as Heathen Chemistry.

And while we're at it I'll add that SOTSOG is a very underrated album.

Yes, but I would still place Giants as the nadir of Oasis. I've always been a huge fan of Heathen Chemistry, which strikes a great balance between shameless rockers and quirky ballads. If Liam had made an effort to write songs with atmosphere and charm such as Born on a Different Cloud and Songbird for Beady Eye's debut rather than the cheap pastiche that comprises almost all of it, he might have had a decent album on his hands.

Dig Out Your Soul was quality, a fine way to cap a career off.. Some of the songs have grown with time, Ain't Got Nothin and The Turning, the album sounds mature and assured, it's pretty good. Did't have the significant filler element of Giants and HC in my opinion.. But still not as good as Don't Believe The Truth, which was a concise showcase of some wonderful tunes.

I know I've said it before, but SOTSOG and HC were only a couple of songs away from being excellent albums. SOTSOG in particular is outstanding in this form:

Fuckin' In The Bushes
Go Let It Out
Who Feels Love?
Let's All Make Believe
Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is
Gas Panic!
Where Did It All Go Wrong?
Sunday Morning Call
Full On
Roll It Over

You drop the two major stinkers, Little James and I Can See A Liar, for two all-time classic B-sides, and when constructed this way, Put Yer Money and Gas Panic! don't sound so overbearing in between Let's All Make Believe and Where Did It All Go Wrong? It just flows so much better.

And Dig Out Your Soul certainly wasn't a bad album to end with...

I would like to quote Ned Flanders in relation to the omission of "Let's All Make Believe" from Giants: as far as melon-scratchers go, that's a honeydoodle.

Cigarettes In Hell wouldn't have sounded too out of place on the album either. The song sounds pretty unique compared to everything else that Oasis had released prior to Giants

Dig Out Your Soul was extremely pleasant. Very cohesive and lacking the embarrassing crap that littered their early 2000s work. That one showed they could still craft a good album, whereas Don't Believe The Truth was extremely inspired but lacked cohesion. Taken together, it was clear that Oasis were actually improving.

Still haven't heard Beady Eye's album, but it's frustrating that the breakup halted their progression.

Speaking of omissions from SOTSOG, I think Full On might be my favorite Oasis b-side.

I'll admit to being quite partial to Little James despite its much maligned (and quite fairly) lyrics, and even then the lyrics don't really bother me that much at all.

Heathen Chemistry is probably my favourite Oasis album and I really liked the last two albums as well. Never saw the big deal about Definitely Maybe.
