the Britalian Milan site for pure Beady Eye, Pretty Green, Oasis, and City fans

BE 9th positive review

LONDON - Between the Beatles and the Beach Boys (hated by jealous Noel...too many hits), no more the fucking Osmonds ahaha (they censored the nipple in Italy too, with the sticker).
Another positive review:

Liam has put the middle finger up at his many critics, Gallagher is back to his best.
Liam Gallagher and his Beady Eye boys are back with the follow up to their debut album Different Gear Still Speeding with new album BE, and its certainly proved Liam has still got it.

Teaming up with producer Dave Sitek seemed a little bit of a gamble at first, but with his input adding some punch and shaking Beady Eye’s sound up, its certainly been a gamble worth taking.
The album is certainly no Oasis album as everyone secretly hopes, although Gallagher said it never would be, album opener Flick Of The Finger opens your ears as you get that thought after the opening 30 seconds that you are ready to hear a top album. Moving into the next single Soul Love see’s Gallagher firmly in his comfort zone, acoustic Brit-pop at its finest and Gallagher’s songwriting improving from a mediocre first album, lyrics such as “life is short, don’t be shy, spread your wings and learn to fly” from Soul Love prove that.
The album is something that might even make you want to sit back and get your feet tickled by the NME… maybe that’s just Gallagher, apart from that awful lyric on Second Bite Of The Apple [song by Gem, responsible for co-writing Noel Gallagher's solo album], the album provides a mostly acoustic Brit-pop record with obvious Oasis feelings, but also an album that punches in places with the more in your face tracks such as Face The Crowd.
Don’t Brother Me is a 7 and a half minute song seemingly a tribute to his long lost estranged brother with the repeated lyric ‘give peace a chance’. Moving to I’m Just Saying, the track is one of the best on the album, the band really excelling themselves, seemingly finding exactly how they want Beady Eye to sound.
Gallagher will probably never have the lyrical talent of his brother, nor will Beady Eye ever be Oasis, but this is him getting back to his best; with Dave Sitek on board with the production, its certainly an album that won’t be written off like their debut.
