This isn't a bad album by any means, it's not as biblical™ as their first two records but it's still a good listen. Oasis albums after Morning Glory get a lot of flak on this site for reasons I don't really know. The main problem with Be Here Now is the length of the songs, which on their own aren't that bad to deal with but when you listen to an hour-long album filled with seven minute songs that get repetitive after a while, then it becomes tedious.
Favorite tracks: "Stand By Me," "The Girl In The Dirty Shirt," "All Around The World," "It's Gettin' Better (Man!!)"
The only track I'd really avoid is "Don't Go Away"

Oasis follow two of my favourite albums with what sounds to me like a contractual obligation. The songs are too long and meandering with none of the hooks found in the previous two albums.

Best album for me - But it did coincide with my first year at uni. so....

I honestly think Noel is embarrased by tryinhg to say something from the heart. The big bollox is all ironic and about the rock and roll bands image. Liam ranks it his fav. I rank it it as my fav ever. Timing as well as it being my fav Oasis album. Music does take you back to certain tikes - and that is also why i think . Noel slates it today - He wasntin a good place. great song writer (so what if he knicked chord progressions - everyonedoes that understands musical theory) but not the best lyriscit. The masterplan is a close second- the first two however mean fck all less than This one does - i can almost feel the moment he was in through Liam (that made it better as he loves it)

although noel does a mean acoustic version of 'stand by me' and 'dont go away'(my fav ever song.

What winds me up about this album is that noel dismissed it and changed oasis(tje masterplan was allready written) and they became not even half the band they were - if he rated it (fck the drugs- we all take em, as do most rock stars, decent producers, decent artists, and he never ever looked like he was excessive). If you have not experienced life - how the fck can you sing about it!!

best album, most underated album ever. We actually got some of noels soul out of it - (and with the masterplan) - you wont get anything from his first two - as good as they were written and constructed.

Incredibly disappointing, Do You Know What I Mean is great , the rest is average , not terrible by any means just average. At the time I thought this album was awful but in hindsight compared to the rubbish to follow from Oasis its actually pretty good in comparison .

bump to an 8, as I have had a listen and enjoyed for old times sake. bought it the day of release with a cert to prove it, before work as hmv opened early for the occasion. isn't that something. the year of ok computer, reprazent, ladies n gents we are in space, urban hymns etc. overblown, over produced, tracks seem to go on about a minute too long, they swallowed the hype,did a shitload of coke etc. BUT there is merit. for a start most of the vocal is good and liam sounds great on dirty shirt and don't go away especially. since this came out along with the singles, ive always thought it would be a good idea to make a version of this with b sides replacing the worst tracks. so with Spotify its easier to do so for me this is a better record: know what I mean, my big mouth, the fame, stand by me, hope I think, dirty shirt, I got the fever, sister lover, don't go away, stay young, going nowhere. id give that version 85 even with the flaws.

From garycottier 07/04/2016 16:44
The most overhyped album in the history of music. It falls down under the weight of it's own hubris. It's ridiculously obvious that by now the Gallagher brothers believed in their own 'importance', and reckoned they could get away with it again and again. It's also obvious Noel had by now recorded all his best songs that he had stockpiled and now had to start again from scratch. The results are awful. There's nothing brilliant here, and some songs such as, all around the world, are terrible, spinal tap meets the rutles. The rest is equally terrible and forgettable. This is the kind of music that happens when success goes to the head.

Not as strong as the first two Oasis albums but still pretty good. All around the World, Stand by Me, The Girl in the Dirty Shirt. Oh yes.

Overblown, cocaine fueled and no quality control, this is a bit of a mess, but it's a lot of fun
