    "BE" is an excellent second album by Beady Eye, a step forward to the right direction. The album is a grower and need its time to show its"BE" is an excellent second album by Beady Eye, a step forward to the right direction. The album is a grower and need its time to show its really beauty and quality. With a more mature and modern sound than their debut and a very good production by Dave Sitek, songs find the space and air to breathe and shine. Liam's vocals sound more mature and natural than ever (no effects), sometimes naked and raw and sometimes heavenly sensitive and emotional. “BE” is the work of a band, actually a very good and tight band and for the first time they finally found their own sound and stigma in modern rock era, far away from the Oasis shadows. People should listen it without prejudice and enjoy the music.

    Top tracks: “Flick Of The Finger”, “Start Anew”, “Iz Rite”, “Soul Love”, “Second Bite Of The Apple”.

    Note: It’s funny to say it, but the tracks in the deluxe editions of the album are much better than almost everything in the standard version! (check: “Evil Eye”, “Back After The Break” and “Off At The Next Exit”)

    "BE" was a lot of things "Different Gear, Still Speeding' was not. Most importantly though, it was good. It's an album I wanted and still want"BE" was a lot of things "Different Gear, Still Speeding' was not. Most importantly though, it was good. It's an album I wanted and still want to listen to track by track every now and then. It's psychedelic, intelligent, and above all unique. Liam Gallagher's vocals are at their best since "Be here now" and Gem Archer's talent with a guitar is for the first time shown to it's fullest. It today baffles me how it flopped as what's wrong with the album is outweighed heavily by what's right. Full Review »
