    The newest Gym Class Heroes Album - The Quilt is quality. Cookie Jar is a good song but the album is chock full of better ones IMO. Drnk Txt Romeo is my favourite though. Can so relate to it. Travy is a really talented guy.

    You know, one song i never got the hype about was Coma, mind you the chances of me getting that far into an album are low, as my attention span is.....

    Coma's awesome, the lyrics are mega, and the bit when all the women are ranting at Axl and then Slash just turns the guitar up....magic, how often do we all feel like doing that???

    Like you, btw, I am also quite fond of Be Here Now. It's a bit like UYI in the way, overblown, critically panned, the band themselves aren't particularly fond of large chunks of it, the songs are long and self-indulgent, yet it's good rock and roll, loads of loud guitars and great tunes. Love it (Y) - that being said I prefer the last two oasis albums to the three that came before it, ie my order of preference is as follows:

    Defo Maybe
    Heathen Chemistry
    Don't Believe the Truth
    Be Here Now
    Morning Glory
    Standing on the Shoulder of Giants

    Probs prefer The Masterplan to Morning Glory & SOTSOG as well. The live album's not great though, of all of the oasis gigs that I've listened to those Wembley gigs are amongst the worst

    FWIW I'd go:

    Definitely Maybe
    Morning Glory
    Don't Believe The Truth
    Heathen Chemistry
    Be Here Now
    Shoulder of Giants


    Masterplan might even go as high as 2 tho, were it an album proper. I think the singles from Be Here Now are great (D'You Know What I Mean? & Stand By Me are two of their best), but there's a lot of water-treading on that album. Magic Pie might well be a career nadir too.

    Would go listen to 13 by Blur before touching any of the Oasis albums tbh.

    Always got the feeling that Oasis could have spent more time on Be Here Now and less time breaking CW forum rules and it could have been great, but basically they they (or Noel) felt it had to come out when it did because they were so, so popular right then. None of their albums since then have met universal approval the way the first two did but they still remain massive, says a lot about how much people loved those early albums and also the personalities of the Gallaghers. Loads of bands have been outselling Oasis for over ten years but they remain huge.

Definitely Maybe is (MHO, obv) comfortably the best Oasis album (and it's probably because it caught me at just the right time that I still give them more time of day than a lot on CW seem to) & since then each of their subsequent releases has been compared to it & found wanting in said comparison. Even Don't Believe The Truth (a big return to form) was generally hailed as their best since... yadda, yadda.
    This annoys me. Fair enough if you feel that a band simply hasn't produced anything decent since [whenever], but to constantly be demanding another Definitely Maybe or whatever strikes me as pointless. We already have Definitely Maybe, I enjoy hearing Oasis doing something a bit different. They can still rock hard without singing about trying to get out of Manchester, because let's face it, they've done that haven't they?

    I don't really think Morning Glory's much chop at all. IMO it's on a level with Standing on the Shoulder of Giants in that it's half kick-arse and half filler. As far as I'm concerned Definitely Maybe is the only Oasis record that's actually a great album - all the others have good stuff on them, but a lot of ordinary or just plain poor stuff too. Heathen Chemistry's the only album of theirs that I think is plain boring, but strangely I also think that The Hindu Times is one of their best tracks ever.

    I've often thought it should be remixed, a la Let It Be. Then we'd hear the great record that lies buried underneath piles of cocaine and 40 guitar tracks on every song. Oh, and swap Magic Pie with Stay Young.

    To be fair I'm not exactly demanding another Definitely Maybe (although an album that was as good would be nice, no question) just noting a trend amongst bands of which Oasis are one of the most obvious examples. As I said a few posts back I thought Don't Believe... was a real return to form and I'll definitely purchase their new LP too. If someone new to the group asked me which was the best Oasis album to buy tho I wouldn't hesitate in recommending their debut.

    I wasn't even saying that a band's debut being their best work is a bad thing, really. It often stands to reason that it should be; you have your whole life to write your first album & a few months to come up with the second.
