 "They’re manna from heaven in a slow newspaper week: boorish, Northern, easily patronised, fluent in the quotable obscenity. Don’t be put off: Definitely Maybe is an outrageously exciting rock/pop album...such vigour and insouciance. A riot." Q
"Noel Gallagher is a pop craftsman in the classic tradition and a master of his trade. Of his generation, probably only Kurt Cobain wielded the manipulative power of melody better, and you can't imagine Noel having too many guilt pangs about whether or not Live Forever was just that little bit too perfect. Here are 12 songs - 11 if you've thrown away your record player - to hum beyond the grave." NME
 "Liam Gallagher has God-given cool. And with his brother Noel supplying him with sumptuous rockers (their echoing production recalls the Beatles' Revolver), it's easy to see why this quintet is next year's model. Heavier on guitar than Blur or Suede, they're the simpler, catchier outfit. And with youth's blithe arrogance, they see the world solely in black and white." Rolling Stone
