My original list was nearly a year ago so I may do a fresh one to see if anything has changed over the next few days.

I have since 'grown up' as they say and opened up to a much wider range of music extending out to Jazz & Avant Garde.
I am now able to listen to actual 'noise' and it doesnt bother me lol (a guy called Merzbow comes to mind).
I remember Be Here Now used to be my favourite Oasis album at one point.
Dont get me wrong Im still into some 'Britpop' (more recentley Suede, whom I used to loathe) & my beloved Cast of course.
I suppose Oasis are not (or werent) a bad band for the average indie music fan but I have since realised that there is nothing really in their music to relate to. Especially their lyrics are total bollocks.
It was mainly just the tunes.
Also I think a lot of their 'popularity' is more so based on their attitude and image other than any musical 'genius' which is so often falsely claimed.
I still have all the old albums but I cant stand to listen to them now (cant handle the vocals and surprisingly I personally find the music bland & boring now-perhaps due to my venture into Metal & other genres(which for me are more exciting).
Also I agreed with the guy from Bloc Party (whom I dont really like either) when he said that Oasis made 'stupidity' hip.
Its interesting to see that people are still talking about them though lol

I liked Heathen Chemistry & Dont Believe The Truth.
I couldnt understand why at first but since I stopped listening to them and they fell out of my taste I have attributed it to their lack of diversity or evolution (i.e. every album sounds pretty much the same)

I think most of their albums were recorded on Cocaine & the album length is pretty much irrelevant to me.
In relation to your comment perhaps it would be fair to judge Oasis as a singles band. (others in my opinion are The Smiths & other Britpop bands).

I kinda noticed ... Dont worry youll come out of it and realise how crap they are lol. My advice is get some Neil Young. The album which got me 'out of' Oasis so to speak was 'Sleeps With Angels'.
Anyway even if you do still like them fair enough.
I just crave more intense/experimental/innovative/creative/meaningful/interesting music these days.

To me they were just better as that kind of band, they are completely different now.
They just matured musically, Illiusion of Saftey is still my favorite album of theirs.

I think someone here said something along the lines of Oasis being a great singles band but not so much an albums band. Pretty much hits the nail on the head when it comes to how I think of them these days. I've stopped listening to them as much as I used to as well, but I still think they're decent enough.
