Beady Eye BE, more details

MOON - I don't agree with Liam about that... the fans and even the critics liked the first album. It's just that he wanted it to sell more.

2nd review, song by song.

1. Flick of the Finger.
A dramatically urgent Beady Velvet Underground beat, blaring trumpets, fuzzy guitars and Liam proclaiming "the future gets written today". The central riff's from a 2004 Liam/Gem demo called Velvet Building because "it sounded like the Velvets and it kept building".

2. Soul Love
The anti-Wonderwall, as Liam's loved-up strum is subjected to terrifying electronics from producer Dave Sitek. Liam: "the whole song fits with the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey, with the baby going to the moon. We might have to just whack it on the internet - I'm up for getting arrested, or sued".

3. Face the crowd
A terrific, gambolling riff in an odd time signature. Liam: "Andy always comes up with the fucking bangers, which is weird". Andy: "It's about the bravado of being in a band. I'm pretty reserved, but when you're onstage, you've got to own it".

4. Second bite of the apple
A bassline like Joe Jackson's "It's different for girls" amid more fab brass and un-Oasis guitar effects. "The word is up, if you're tough enough", yowls Liam. Scott Walker's "The old man's back again" (from Scott 4) was an in-studio inspiration.

5. Soon come tomorrow
"What kind of love burns holes in your heart?", wonders Liam, among worried acoustics, bewildering synths and a contrastingly hot wah-wah guitar solo. Andy: "It's pretty personal, about something that happened between me and [his wife] Shiarra".

6. Iz rite
Liam: "It's like the Beatles on ecstasy, like a George Harrison-y Hare Krishna thing. Gem wrote it - I'm not saying it's fucking girly or anything, but he's definitely in touch with his feminine side at the moment".

7. I'm just saying
Andy: "my gist to the Morning Glor fans - us doing what we do very well". Super catchy and, yes, Oasis-y, but with that value added, future-now Sitek zing.

8. Don't brother me
Liam: "It is about a brother, but I do have two - and they're both fucking idiots". Step forward eldest brother Paul Gallagher. Another Liam acoustic strum, which launches off into deepest, darkest Sitekville on hypnotic synths and a sitar-y clang.

9. Shine a light
Tremendous opening riff in the style of The Stooges circa 1969 propels this way-out-there rocker with added backwards guitar. The rhythm came from a jam over Captain Beefheart's Mirror Man. Not even remotely Dadrock.

10. Ballroom figured
First recorded with full band, but when it came to Liam to overdub his voice, producer Sitek stripped it back to just acoustic guitar. Gem: "It sounded amazing, so we kept it like that. That's production, too - taking everything off".

11. Start anew
Another acoustic track with Liam's sweetest vocal ever. Andy: "Dave coaxed this Neil Young solo out of me, and it spins into an ending that doesn't quite resolve. We never push the epic button too hard".
