Review of Beady Eye – BE (Sony Music Canada)

Beady EyeAfter having been thoroughly disappointed with the 2011 debut from post-Oasis group Beady Eye, they have come a long way at refining their songwriting skills on their sophomore effort. The album starts with a couple of darker tracks that show an exciting depth that I feel was sorely lacking on their debut. Like Oasis before them, Beady Eye isn’t shy about wearing their influences on their sleeves; the Time Of The Season-inspired opening on Second Bite Of The Apple is delightful. These songs are a great and ultimately much needed leap forward for the future of Beady Eye.
