Despite the continual disagreements between the Gallagher brothers, the split of Brit Pop sensation Oasis, shook the core of the musical world in 2009. Beady Eye has risen from the ashes without the lyrical genius Noel, to deliver a truly breathtaking debut album. The album still retains the iconic sound we instantly recognise with Oasis, but influences such as the Beatles and The Who are apparent through the opening tracks, showing a new edge to the band.There is a refreshed, enthusiasm for music again, with all the members contributing to the album, rather than a one man show as it was with Oasis.
The biggest song on the album is undoubtedly ‘Bring the Light’ which allows us to marvel in the rugged but beautiful voice of Liam Gallagher, back to his best.
Despite fears over consistency, the album delivers songs like ‘The Roller’ & ‘Four Letter Word’ which are bound to be huge hits displaying the unique Brit pop rhythm’s that circled around the 60’s British Rock and Roll scene.Obviously the band will always be compared with Oasis, but this album rolls back the years, and picks up from when Oasis were in their prime, delivering soulful songs which become iconic to the genre.
However it also retains a certain degree of originality on which the band can build upon, and maybe someday create their own musical dynasty minus Noel.
