"I know that people here like them"
I thought they were near-universally hated around here. When I listened to an hour or so of their music as background music and hated it, I came here and mentioned it and most people concurred with me (almost all the British people posting here at the time seemed to hate them too.) "Champagne Supernova" remains my big stinkeroo, ranking with Stone Temple Pilots' "Creep" and Semisonic's "Closing Time" as my "most hated 90s rock hits."
Hell, we don't really discuss Blur that much either, even though I think they put out a terrific reunion album two years ago that nobody wanted to discuss with me.
