While the world waits for the Liam and Noel reunion, Beady Eye’s second long player actually comes with a strong recommendation of being rather good. Sure, there are still one or two nods towards Liam Gallagher’s former band, coupled with some grating rhyming by numbers lyrics, but at least this time around Beady Eye has managed to step off the Oasis carousel for the majority of the ride. The noticeable difference is a greater use of restraint best heard on the brooding ‘Soul Love’ and beautiful delicacy of ‘Start Anew’ that eventually soars into orbit and recalls guitarist Andy Bell’s former cohorts. ‘Second Bite of The Apple’ could be a personal note to self or merely noting the cynicism of the music press with Liam having his feet tickled by the latest edition of the NME. Elsewhere, ‘Soon Come Tomorrow’ meanders into an enclosed area unable to find the exit due to its lack of direction only to be rescued by the more lively ‘I’m Just Saying’ and experimental duo of ‘Don’t Bother Me’ and ‘Shine A Light’. It seems the sibling rivalry looks set to run another course as Beady Eye have reinvigorated themselves and raised the bar somewhat.
