The only decent tracks are "F In The Bushes", Go Let it Out, Gas Panic, and Sunday Morning Call. The others are virtually unforgetable, but then again so are a few of the listenable ones.
It's sound of a band who are trying to do something different to what they did in the past, but don't know how, or it just doesn't come as natural to them as it does to some of the more pioneering bands
There's a decent b-side that features of Go Let It Out, that is probably the last good b-side (remember they used to be able to make b-sides that were almost as good as singles n albums tracks!) called Let's All Make Believe that should have featured on this album in place of some of the drab tracks like Little James and Who Feels Love.
Be Here Now was made under the influence of mountains of baking soda, and while it wasn't what it was built upto be, it was still far from bargin bin material.
I have followed oasis from ther near beginning this one is not the best they have done dosent make my top 5 of their albums but still has 2 or 3 good rockin tracks still a cd to have if youre a fan del on time and a+ condition
Die Schallplatte war als "neu" ausgewiesen, jedoch weist sie eindeutig Gebrauchsspuren auf. Für den Preis, den ich bezahlt habe, finde ich es ein wenig dreist. Ansonsten aber läuft die Platte durch und wir konnten keinen Klangunterschied erkennen. Tolles Album!
A lot of people give Be Here Now a hard time because it does not live up to expectations. I don't agree, it does, its just a bit of a mess of an album.
Its this record which worries me more. This was Oasis's first experimental album. Using electronic sounds, and beats to produce their songs.
It sounds okay but at times it just sounds plain confused. Noel singing two songs, with 9 tracks on this record doesn't help much to reclaim Oasis's lost identity... Gas Panic is obviously the highlight, along with Who Feels Love (a meandering slow song but it works) and Go Let it out, a typical Noel type song you would expect from him.
Roll it Over ends the album, in a sort of tribute to Champagne Supernova but all in all that is kind of where it ends. Its not that any songs are awful, its just so far down compared to the first 3 Oasis albums.
Lets all make believe was left off as a b side, along with One Way Road (baffling really) and Carry Us All to.
Also its a bit short, only 10 tracks, 9 actual songs with singing, it could of been 11, with Liam singing all the songs (Full On?) and Noel just the 1 if he felt like he had to.
I like this album, its alright, but its just hard to listen to all the way through, there are some great songs, but also some real bricks here. But on a more positive note Roll It Over is the most overlooked Oasis song and I do not understand why its been left behind.
There are some great moments here which will remind you of Oasis from 1996. But there are also some real moments that will make you realize they didn't really know what they wanted from this record.
