Beady Eye is of course the new band of frontman Liam Gallagher after his longtime band Oasis split up. Oasis guitarists Gem Archer and Andy Bell are also part of Beady Eye. "Different Gear, Still Speeding" - basically, trying to show that Liam can still rock his John Lennon-like voice without brother Noel Gallagher's compositions. A lot of the album's lyrics seem to have this goal and are somewhat pointedly aimed at Noel (such as "The Morning Son"). Did Liam succeed? Yes, I think so. This debut album didn't blow me away but it's not bad either - 4.5 stars rounded up to five for this review.

"Millionaire" is a great track, has kind of an eastern flair; I've read it was inspired by Spain and Salvador Dal'is paintings. "Beatles and Stones" - "I just wanna rock and roll"! A catchy tune that sums up the tone the album. "For Anyone" is a prime example of Beady Eye's Beatles inspiration (see the resemblance in the band names even?? lol) and is totally sold by Liam's vocals, which takes some twists and turns that make an otherwise straightforward track memorable.

"Kill For a Dream" tonight is one of those tracks that makes you think it is aimed at Noel. Liam didn't write it, however, it is by Andy Bell; so who knows. A slower poignant song with lyrics that speak of forgiveness, looking back at the past, and moving on. Fitting regardless of who wrote it! "Wigwam" is another great mellow song with bittersweet lyrics. The only problem is that it overstays its welcome IMO for at least a couple of minutes - don't know why it is a 6 1/2 minute track! There's not enough material to cover that much time. "Three Ring Circus" has an almost bluesy beat to it in parts.

"The Beat Goes On" may be my favorite from the album, seems to be about how good music is so often overlooked these days, a dying breed! A little pretentious perhaps but I'll agree, good music is too often lost in the "pop" music world.

"The Morning Son" is a beautiful song to sum up "Different Gear, Still Speeding." The song speeds up and climaxes at the end in a very unexpected way. It seems to be about Liam and his brother Noel, and how Liam is breaking free of that history with Oasis and troubled relationship with Noel to stand alone, keeping the music alive even when fans might doubt whether he can make it without Noel. Keep it up Liam and Beady Eye - I like this album.
