    Beady Eye's eagerly awaited debut represents Liam Gallagher's uninspiring foray into the spotlight without Noel, his battle-weary brother and Oasis's chief songwriter.

    "Different Gear ,Still Speeding" is an album about love, hope,life & dreams.It sounds fresh
    free,uplifting,soulful,happy,and sensitive.A great new start for Liam Gallagher and co , a huge surprise for everyone , even for Oasis fans.Perfect in its imperfection and that's finally how a rock n roll record should sound.These guys should be proud and we should feel lucky to hear that great voice singing again classics such as "The Beat Goes On" , "Four Letter Word", "Wigwam" or "Kill For A Dream" to name a few!Best debut album of the year by the best new band of the year!

    This album is truly remarkable. Whoever said Liam needed Noel to put together a great album was wrong. I listened to this album 16 times inThis album is truly remarkable. Whoever said Liam needed Noel to put together a great album was wrong. I listened to this album 16 times in one week it is truly amazing. 13 amazing tracks that really showcase just how great Liam's voice still is. Be sure to check out their b-sides as well.This album has so many remarkable sons not to mention 2 songs that are over 6 minutes. This is a well crafted album that is sure to make a splash.
