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.....

Langeveldt: I of course blame their parents.. and unchecked immigration!
GingerFurball: He's Austrian, they tend to produce the odd ****ed up individual
Burgey: Be careful dealing with neighbours whose cars don't have wheels but whose houses do.
Uppercut: Maybe I just need better strippers
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:
Don't Believe the Truth
Be Here Now
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
Don't Believe The Truth
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.

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.
Been listening to a lot of 2 Many DJs/Soulwax lately. So gun. Can mix anything into anything and make it sound good.
