Amoeba Review

11/16/2013

It’s been far too long since Liam Gallagher made a ruckus. His debut album with Beady Eye was a serviceable Stones-rock retread, but now, teaming with producer Dave Sitek (producer for Yeah Yeah Yeahs and member of TV on the Radio), Beady Eye comes back with a more contemporary sound on BE. Using spare percussion and eerie guitar sound on “Soul Love,” Beady Eye nabs your attention, while melodically Gallagher is at his strongest. However, even with its experimental instrumentation, this is still a band with Andy Bell as a member, and thankfully, indulge they do in some good ol’ fashioned Britpop, on songs like the three-chord jangler “Face the Crowd,” spacey and expansive “Iz Rite” and grandiose, “Paint It Black”-ish “Shine a Light.” Gallagher’s project still struggles a bit for a cohesive identity, but the tunes here are strong, proving that the former Oasis frontman still has a lot to offer.
