5.0 out of 5 stars A great song with 1 good and 2 amazing B-Sides 17 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ciagarettes and Alcohol is pure rock and roll, and a song that is perfectly suited to a friday night at the pub. The B-side of I Am The Walrus, is a very good cover of a frankly bizzare Beatles song. Oasis have re-packaged this song to a more rocky, and in my view, better finished article. The other two B-sides, Fade Away and Listen Up are truly fantastic songs, and show Noel at his best. If you are looking to buy Oasis singles, this should be at the top of your list.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST Oasis Single 2 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It starts with the A-side, "Cigarettes and Alcohol" good, solid rock-and-roll. The B-Sides are even better. The cover of "I am the Walrus" recorded live is simply awesome. At eight minutes long, it becomes an acid jam after about three. Next, you get "Listen Up" quite possibly the best song Noel Gallagher has ever written. After that, it's "Fade Away" which I feel is sort of a rock-ballad companion to another song Oasis did called "D'Yer Wanna Be A Spaceman". This EP is definitely for the true Oasis fan and even for those with a casual affection towards the five lads from Manchester.
5.0 out of 5 stars an incredibly great CD single 14 April 2005
By Missing Person - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What a thrill rush it was for me listening to Oasis' exhiliarting debut album "Definitely Maybe" album back in March of 1995. By all means, I was eager to hear more from these blokes, and imagine my surprise when I came across "Cigarettes & Alcohol", an absolute gem of a CD single. At this point, it's widely confirmed that Oasis' CD singles are a huge part of their legacy--their b-sides were typically just as great as the songs that made it onto the official albums--but back in '95, I didn't really know any better, and I just picked this up starving for more Oasis material. The title track was the 4th & final A-side culled from "Definitely Maybe", and with its T. Rex-derived riff, it's a great example of the exciting rock & roll blast Oasis were serving up so regularly back then. Then for the b-sides which were then unavailable on album... They totally tear it up with their live cover of "I Am the Walrus" which has a great Liam vocal and an extended jam section with impressive guitar heroics (did Noel actually play all that stuff?!?); call me nuts, but in terms of sheer power & enjoyment, it blows away the Beatles studio version which suffers from botched execution. Then you get a pair of Noel Gallagher originals--he delivers another soaring rock 'ballad' with the epic "Listen Up" which is in the same league as "Live Forever", and the disc closes with the hard-charging, wistful rocker "Fade Away". In the end, this disc, which runs nearly 24 minutes, really does have the feel of a genuine EP--Oasis used the CD single format as an opportunity to offer up more greatness as opposed to something tossed off merely to satisfy record company obligations. All 3 of the b-sides subsequently turned up on their 1998 b-sides compilation "The Masterplan" (although "I Am the Walrus" appears to have been edited/ shortened) but "Cigarettes & Alcohol" remains an incredibly great CD single in its own right.

Sinceramente desde hace mucho tiempo he estado buscando conseguir todos los sencillos de Oasis. No habia tenido el dinero para hacerlo ni donde comprarlos, pero me acabo de conseguir esta joyita. Si no eres tan quisquilloso puedes conseguirlos por medio de los vendedores de usados aqui mismo en Amazon.com y aun cuando no son nuevos, estan garantizados para tocar y que son originales. Si eres coleccionista de verdad te vas a gastar mucho dinero en conseguir los nuevos, pero si eres como yo que solo quiere voltear a su coleccion de discos y ver que los sencillos de tu banda favorita estan ahi, no te vas a arrepentir. A la fecha he comprado por este medio "Live forever", "Supersonic", "Cigarettes & Alcohol", "Some might say", "Don't look back in anger", "Go let it out", "Lyla" y "The importance of being idle". Todos me llegaron rapidisimo a mi direccion en USA, en promedio de 3 a 7 dias habiles. No lo dudes.
