2.0 out of 5 stars A long and boring dissappointment 28 April 2013
Format:Audio CD
According to the hype at the time, following on from "Whats the Story Morning Glory", 21st August 1997 was the day that the best album ever made was to be released and everyone should remember where they were as a result.
What we had was one of the biggest anti-climax's and let downs in modern musical history. It sounds like Oasis wanted to find a middle ground between the edgy "Definately Maybe" and the softer "Morning Glory" and ended up with something that sounds like it didn't know what to be, that is overlong, tedious and boring.
So, why 2 stars not 1? Well there a couple of not so bad songs on it "Stand By Me" and "The Girl In The Dirty Skirt". Maybe if some of the slightly better songs were moved onto other albums, then individually there maybe some that might grow on you.
Looking at the notes and track list for the 2006 compilation "Stop The Clocks", you note that there are no songs from this album featured and that the album barely gets a mention other than to note that retrospectively Noel felt that the album was rushed. I can't decide if this is an understated, self criticism in the wake of the dissappointment, or pinpoints exactly what went wrong here.
Listening to it the first time in ages, in order to write this review it's not any better than I remember it, not that I could remember a single song from it. Not being able to remember a single song from it probably says all anyone needs to know, if there is anyone out there looking to buy this.
The CD artwork is quite interesting though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality and class 14 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album was hyped, mass-purchased and then slated, and it's obvious from all the reviews here that my thoughts are not alone. This album was superb when I bought it and it is still brilliant today. From the opening track (D'You Know What I Mean?) to the beautiful reprise of All Around the World at the end, this album has you captivated with it's effect-laden, athemic songs. Noel creates a superb wall of sound on the heavier tracks, which gives the record a powerful feel, and although it is long, it's still a pleasure to listen to. My favourite tracks are My Big Mouth, Girl In The Dirty Shirt and It's Getting Better Man. Nuff said.

5.0 out of 5 stars Massively under rated 25 May 2006
By Mr H
Format:Audio CD
At the time this was released, they could never top Morning Glory so whatever was on this CD was going to be criticised negatively, but its still a very good album nearly 10 years on.

To put things into perspective, Morning Glory is a 6 star masterpiece, this deserves 5.

Best tracks are 1, 4, 6, 8 & 10

Most of the rest are still better than average songs but don't bring the album down in any way.

Sometimes you need the 'very goods' to appreciate the 'greats'.

Okay, I'll start off by saying that Be Here Now is not as good as Morning Glory by a long shot. However, I trusted that Oasis could still deliver whilst at a low point; and I was rewarded. Be Here Now has multiple great tracks, such as D'you Know What I Mean, All Around The World, and The Girl In The Dirty Shirt. The rest are listenable, even on a bad day (with the exceptions of Fade In-Out and My Big Mouth). On a good day, I will even do the whole album - but they are becoming rarer. The novelty on some songs wears off after a while, and you start seeing it as an overly long wall of sound. However, I thoroughly enjoyed my first listen of Be Here Now, and I have not yet with of any songs as consistently bad - there are always days when you feel like listening to a particular BHN song, no matter which one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good Oasis album but a few changes needed 28 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
Well,well,well a 3rd Oasis album and a good one at that.Songs on there are just unforgettable classics though some are very overproduced but that shouldn't stop you from buying it.Songs such as D'you know what I mean,My big mouth and I hope, I think, I know show off that swagger and arrogance the awesome Gallagher brother have produced.But songs like All around the world and Magic pie show the classic Oasis acoustic songs.Though haven't I forgotten something?Oh yes the amazing lyrically and emotional Stand by me a true classic again I wish I had the writing powers of Noel buy the album on this but also take in other songs.But as always there's something wrong The girl in a dirty shirt and it's gettin' better man are weaker tracks though do not let me put off of the album.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wall of 20 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
Ok Ok, slow down - so this definately isn't the complete balls up that the critics (and most of the public) would have you beleive. But at the same time it isn't a classic (put those five stars away NOW!!!)
In short, to listen to this album all the way through is quite a tedious experience. But that is not to say there aren't some gems on there.

First up, D'Y Know What I Mean. This single is probably one of the subtlest things they have ever done. It builds gradually and has endured far better than some of their more praised early efforts.

Stand By Me is a hands down classic. And All Around the World is still fun to listen to (if a little overblown and certainly not deeply complex in either its lyric or melody)

So two classics and one near miss: these are things that cannot be said about any of two albums that followed.

The rest is a bit tiresome (well Magic Pie is tolerable), everything goes on for far too long and the melodic and lyrical content is about as slight as anything you'll ever hear. BUT.... if they'd put a couple of the contemporary B-Sides on this album (Stay Young and Going Nowhere) it would have been a half classic.

Not as bad as everyone says. But not as good as we had hoped for. The beginning of the end of Britpop.
