Biography

“Music, it’s all about the music, we could all have sat at home after Oasis split but what would have been the point of that. We had a couple of weeks off and then we were back in the studio demo-ing. We’re musicians, it’s what we do, it’s how we define ourselves.”

That’s Andy Bell, one of the two guitarists in Beady Eye, explaining why the band ... Read more in Amazon's Beady Eye Store

In 2011 just a short time after the split of Oasis Beady Eye rushed into releasing their first album Different Gear Still Speeding. Critics and fans where divided and the album is destined to be one that is loved by fans but sneered at by the neutral. In an attempt to change things a new producer was hired and Liam and co have certainly felt the benefit.
BE is everything I wanted and more for Beady Eye. The music is more out there in places than Oasis. Soul Love and the ending to Don't Brother Me in particular are more spaced and chilled out than Oasis yet the album also manages to maintain the Oasis swagger with stompers like I'm Just Saying and Face the Crowd and in true Oasis style the flag waver is in place with the album closer Start Anew.

All in all, this album is a massive step forward for Liam and the band. Flick the Finger, Soul Love, Soon Come Tomorrow, Just Saying and Start Anew all make a strong argument for been the best Beady Eye song and the rest of the tracks stand up as well. This was a very pleasant and enjoyable listening experience and I would strongly recommend this album to any fans of guitar music.

I would as a closing point agree with others that have said make sure if you do buy it that you pick up the deluxe edition. Worlds Not Set in Stone, Back after the Break and Off at the Next Exit are again some of the bands best work and it amazes me that they are bonus songs! Spend the extra few pounds and get these tracks you will not be disappointed.

Two or three good tracks but irritatingly raucous in parts.It`s a long way from Oasis at their best but still better than I could do!

with the world of rock and pop being full of dull and tired characters, i really don't get the general dislike of Liam. arrogant? sure, but at least he's gone and done it all, so he has a bit of a right to be.

Beady Eye are a superb band musically and lyrically. i was dazzled by just how good their debut was (yes, i was one of those ones expecting it to be weak with Noel's leadership gone), this is a solid build on top of that.

It has taken me a long time to write a review of this album. When it was first released, the album fell on deaf ears and was disregarded by various snobby publications for being, amongst other things, poorly sung, poorly written and poorly produced. Let me tell you now, it is none of those things.
Beady Eye's first album was met with almost universal skepticism even before release and their sophomore effort fared no better. Critics and haters queued to dismiss this as yet "another chapter in the reformation of Oasis". However, this album shows a group who have outgrown their origins and want to move forward not backward, a decent move for any band trying to create it's own identity.
"Flick Of The Finger" is a genuine achievement and proves just how exciting and overblown rock music can really be. Oasis would never have made a track like this and it is all the better for it. The horns, the pretentious ending, the raw vocals and the nice guitar work add up to what we all had been hoping for, the "Beady Eye" sound. It is just impossible not to get caught up in this track, it is simply awesome.
As is the second track released from the album, "Second Bite Of The Apple", being quite brilliant. The sounds conjured by the band, fusing jazz, psychedelia and rock elements create a cinematic experience, especially when the chorus kicks in with the horns. The only weak element of the track is the lyrics, which are reminiscent in quality of "Little James". Unfortunately, it is this problem that, as predicted, continues through the rest of the album.
The much publicised "Don't Brother Me" is just a mess lyrically.

Like a band of experienced fighting soldiers roaming the countryside pillaging and making fools of themselves because they have lost their leader - Noel.

This album is brilliant, I've listened to this album numerous times since it arrived on Tuesday...and without a doubt each song is unique, Liam's voice hasn't sounded so pure for a longtime, beady eye have really raised the bar with this. I hope this album is successful because they have shown what they are capable of and we want more,

this album just shows they still have it, even without noel's guidance! great album, songs such as 'flick of the finger' and 'soul love' are just brilliant little tracks, liams voice sounds so much cleaner and is almost as good as it is on 'familiar to millions' which was the oasis concert at wembley in 2000, great little record, well worth the money!

The second album by Beady Eye didn’t made me all too happy. It’s just a nice record, no more and no less. Sometimes a song does remind me of the good britrock music, but overall “BE” lacks the high quality. Lyrically, half of the songs are (sadly) mediocre. Sometimes within the lyric there are rhymes with the only purpose to rhyme, with the lines having no meaning at all. I noticed that two times it even irritated me. Liam has written better lyrics in the past. Sadly, plenty of songs don’t keep sticking in your head.

Maybe my expectations were a little bit too high. Maybe I was wishing for a record I could know I would not get to hear. Definitely don’t expect something in the Oasis-tradition. And maybe that is the thing Beady Eye is just trying to do. Oasis is the past, Beady Eye is now. Luckily, there are some good things about the record too. I agree with the other reviewers who also like album opener, the very good “Flick of the Finger” and “Second bite of the Apple”. Also it sounds like the band decided to use less guitar orientated music. If that’s a one try or a new direction, we’ll have to wait for their next album.

The feeling that remains: it is o.k., but it could have been better. The potential within the band still must be there.
