ALBUM OF THE WEEK – BEADY EYE – DIFFERENT GEAR STILL SPEEDING
Beady Eye‘s debut album is not that good. It is good to hear Liam singing again, as he ahs a great voice and when not used as an imitation of John Lennon it is Unique and quite simply awesome, apart from that there is not much to recommend about this album.
At its best it is a poor pastiche of Oasis’s worst album’s, lyrically it is a mess, lyrics are not just random words joined together to form sentences, they must have meaning and be interesting.
At it’s worst it is a miserable attempt to sound like his former hero’s.
This album recently made NME’s top 25 of the first 4 months of the year, and they left out the brilliant soulful British Sea Power a record Liam could only dream of making.
Saying all that I would love to see them Live.
