One in the Beady Eye for the critics!!, 19 April 2011
This is a brilliant return for what really is Oasis minus Noel Gallagher, but with this album Liam, Gem, Andy and Chris have taken their talents to another level with some rousing anthems which will live long in the memory.
Starting off with the rip-roaring Four Letter Word, the album sweeps into the catchy Millionaire, showing glimpses of the Beatles influence on Liam. The Roller comes next, followed by the aptly named Beatles & Stones, because that song could have been easily done by either of those great bands.
There are a couple of tracks that seem as though they are fillers, but Bring The Light, Standing On The Edge Of The Noise and Three Ring Circus are classics in waiting.
A lovely flowy end to the record with The Beat Goes On and Morning Son makes for an excellent return and I for one cannot wait for the follow up!
As for the DVD, the documentary is well structured and shows how much more comfortable Gem and Andy have become in sharing the limelight with Liam, who himself seems far more mature than the Oasis days.
The addition of the three videos is an excellent idea - although I would have like to have seen Sons Of The Stage on the album itself.
But overall - Excellent! Open your eyes to Beady Eye!
