“Stand By Them”

published 04/06/2005

ProSome good tracks

ConsOver indulgent production. Some weak tracks.

When your first album was perhaps the album of the 90's, your second album gave it a good run for it's money you end up having to produce an album in the same league for your third album. That unfortunately didn't happen with "Be Here Now". Noel Gallagher called it the album written by "two gob...

ConsThe first signs of slightly poorer tracks

The return of Oasis in 1997 wasn't quite what everyone expected. After 2 superb albums it was probably only natural that the third wouldn't be quite as good. That's not saying it was a bad album, because it wasn't, it just didn't compare to the earlier 2. They set the standard so high with the...

“the best songs??”

published 12/10/2000

Probest song included in the album.

Consnone

This album is my favourite simply because it includes the greatest oasis song they have done so far - don't go away, a truly brilliant song. Other good songs on the album include, magic pie and stand my me. All true Oasis fans will of course know this but i thought i would just let people know...

“Pukka or pants”

published 22/02/2001

ProIt's Oasis! great music lives up to their standard

Consnone i don't think

I have all the Oasis albums, because Liam and Noel are two of a kind! I would say that Be Here Now is the bands best album so far, with great songs such as " Stand By Me", "Magic Pie" and "D'ya Know what I mean?" After going to the Oasis concert in the Summer at Bolton, I realised how good the...

In the middle of the 1990s Oasis brought us two of the most outstanding albums in the history of popular music. Then they released 'Be Here Now'. Few bands have fallen from grace quite so quickly in terms of quality. This album was recorded with almost exactly the4 same line-up and back room...

“Not too bad”

published 06/11/2001

ProSimplicity, Vocals

ConsLyrics, doesn't compete with the first two albums

Now Be Here Now is an album that was hammered by the critics, and since he has been clean from drugs, Noel Gallagher has certainly been critical of this album. I don't blame him, because he's the songwriter of Britain's most important guitar band and you've got to have high standards, but overall...

Cons7 Not so good ones, tired, complacent and reeking ...

Well, what to say? Weighing in at a brain numbing 71 minutes, this is one big exercise in excess. Fuelled by cocaine and alcohol, it's heavy going, an overproduced wall of sound, certainly not a worthy successor to 'What's the Story...'. Naturally, there are good moments, bits where your hair...

“Least deserved”

published 13/08/2001

ProThree top 10 singles

ConsPoor planning, too long

With both ‘Definitely Maybe’ and ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory’ being number one albums, it is no surprise to see Oasis’ third, ‘Be Here Now’ do the same. D’You Know What I Mean – Great albeit flawed number one hit single for an...

“Been There Then”

published 27/07/2000

ProStill got some of the Oasis charm

ConsNot as good as one had hoped

This CD by Oasis is unlike the ones they've done in the past. 'Be Here Now' is the result of Noel Gallagher's different writing techniques and therefore doesn't hit the spot the same way as 'Definately Maybe' and 'WTSMG' did. Oasis have received mixed opinions on this album and although my...

“Third not always turd”

published 30/07/2000

ProThey are back

ConsCould be better

‘Be Here Now’ the long awaited return of Oasis after the huge success of the previous album. Could the boys ever live up to the hype leading up to the release or even match the success of the previous offerings. Not a bad start with the great opening track D’You Know What I Mean? That gives the...

Proeveidence of some good tunes

Consslow tempo

this record needed me to produce it because I firstly would just crank up the tempo on all the songs. Thats the trouble with it, its all one paced, a drunken sing a long when it needed more energy. Also they have included lots of brass sections well I would have just turn the guitars up and put...

Proguitar

this has been slated by critics n what seemed to be a backlash more dependent on knocking oasis of their pedestals rather that criticising the music itself. this is a fine album and has some good scarf waving tunes. it is definitely in the shadow of the two albums that go before but equally it...

ProThe opening track

ConsToo many unmemorable tracks

Eh, such nice boys, the Gallaghers, good steadfast Manchester stock with their parka jackets and National Health specs – good t’their Mum and everything… Apparently they had some sort of band, called Oasis or some such malarkey and they got paid for making records, they did. They had a couple in...

“Oasis at its peak,”

Prosee article

Conssee article

This to me was the end of Oasis and the Gallegher brothers. Although there are some good songs here like 'D'You know what I mean' and 'Stand by me' the rest of the album is quite tune less. It does not stand up to the first two albums by a long shot and this is shown even further in the new album...
