to be serious... oasis were successfull at copying their heroes 2 times: don't look back in anger and wonderwall. the biggest part of the rest of their catalogue consists of nice entertaining songs, and noel gallagher has fine taste. that's all. cannot see how they qualify for a 'lifetime achievement award' now. they should hand that to radiohead instead. they deserve it already.

Thouroughly deserved, if u look at the last major studio albums of all the big bands like U2, Coldplay, RHCP, Green Day, Radiohead etc the Dont believe the truth compares favorably to most of them, and is certainly not overshadowed by either one of these. We all know how good their first two albums are, and Be here now and Standing on the shoulder of Giants are grossly under rated. they definetely deserve this award... and how cool would it be if Bono presented it to them... the mutual admiration among the two bands (Liams hilarious comments aside) has always been obvious.

i agree with this, but i still dig oasis.

every band "steals" something from other bands. i remember a discussion about radiohead being better than oasis because oasis "steals" whole songs.

that may be true, but some radiohead songs nick riffs and melodies from other songs.

karma police and the beatles' sexy sadie is one.

i can't remember the others, but i have heard them.

radiohead was smart enough to not get stuff from the most famous 4 piece rock group in the world.

i think there are some songs on the bends, like just that resemble some songs of radiohead's early heroes.

Without thinking about it, Don't Look Back in Anger = Watching the Wheels.

In all seriousness though, I've never liked their production values. I don't like albums where the vocals consistantly sound like they were recorded in the cargo hold of a large seafaring vessel.

I agree they deserve the achievement award, but Standing on the shoulder..., is most definetly not under rated, for a group who gave us Def. Maybe, & Story, I still can't believe how bad an album that particular one is, but yeah overall they deserve the award.

Don't look back in anger borrows the piano part from Imagine.

A bit early for them to be getting a lifetime achievement award.

Much as I love Oasis I'm with Zoots on this. Lifetime Achievement Award?! They deserve that in another ten year's time, not now.

But it'll be er, interesting to see Noel and Liam back at the Brits...

Well, didn't bono or edge just said in an interviwe for a magazine they wish they'd written live forever?

Liking oasis is tough, specially because liam gallagher is such a d*ck , but noel is IMHO one of the best singer songwriters of today. Go and listen to the masterplan, talk tonight, half the world away, live forever itself.

I don't know if they should recieve a lifetime achivment award as a band. Just give it to noel!!!!!

Listening to Def. Maybe at the moment, it really is a truly brilliant album. Just thought I'd share that with anyone who's bothered.
