Beady Eye – Different Gear, Still Speeding (Dangerbird / Maple Music)

Running from the legacy that is Oasis would be a foolish thing to try to evade so it makes complete sense for post-Oasis band Beady Eye to embrace the past. Not surprisingly however these 13 songs lack the brilliance of much of the Oasis catalogue, especially given the fact that chief Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher is not a part of this band. A couple of standout moments are found here but overall, Beady Eye score more of a miss than a hit with their debut.
