Arriving with the force of a hurricane, Oasis' third album, Be Here Now, is a bright, bold, colorful tour de force that simply steamrolls over any criticism. The key to Oasis' sound is its inevitability - they are unwavering in their confidence, which means that even the hardest rockers are slow, steady, and heavy, not fast. And that self-possessed confidence, that belief in their greatness, makes Be Here Now intensely enjoyable, even though it offers no real songwriting breakthroughs.

Be here now (the album) and bb-sides - oasis. Well, this is the very first collection of the eleven songs from 'Be Here Now', the latest masterpiece from Noel Gallagher. Also included are five of the six BB-Sides to the first two singles. If you find or figure out the one BB-Side I am missing, (I Got) The Fever, please e-mail it to me at

Be Here Now. As with other songs on here, nothing special, but there's nothing specifically wrong with it either. The lyrics are total nonsense, but the overall feel of the song is OK, with an interesting keyboard riff played on a child's piano. This is a very weak end to the album, and provides further evidence of Oasis not being clear where they were going with this record, and, to a certain extent, not really caring that much. 1/5. There are several fundamental flaws with this album. As I've already said, not only could some songs easily be scrapped, but most of the songs on here could simply have a few minutes chopped at some point, to make this a tighter, more cohesive album.

Oasis’ ‘Be Here Now’ may be the band’s most underrated album. Regardless of what critics say, the facts support such a viewpoint. Upon its release, the Gallagher brothers' third full-length became the fastest-selling album in . history and the highest-charting Oasis album in the . reaching No. 2. Some might say that was too damn high, and that 'Be Here Now' doesn't stand up to the band's first two albums, 'Definitely Maybe' and '(What's the Story) Morning.

Not a classic like the earlier albums but has stood the test of time.It sounds better now in all its sonic glory than it did way back when it was released.Stand out tracks for me are Fade In-Out and Dont Go Away.

If you're coming off two classic albums, each critically acclaimed and selling millions of records, it's gonna be difficult to follow that up. The Gallagher's follow up to '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' Was also a massive chart smash and was critically acclaimed upon release. Then the hype died down and people started to realize the album's flaws. Britpop died along with the hype. Oasis would never reach the mammoth popularity they had in their early days. Noel Gallagher dismissed the album as terrible and the critics seemed to agree with him. Which is a shame. This album is FUCKING BIBLICAL. I love this record. It has problems, don't get me wrong. It's loud as fuck, it's far too long and it's ridiculously overproduced. But then again, isn't Noel the master of bombast. The Phil Spector of the 90s. The record is doused in massive amounts of feedback, orchestral accompaniment and layers upon layers of guitar tracks. The result is a explosive hurricane of noise, one that swallows you and never lets go. The opening track, the 7 minute feedback drenched psych-rock 'D'You Know What I Mean?' Is a classic oasis anthem, Liam's trademark snarl making the track perfectly. The next track 'My Big Mouth' explores the public image of the Gallagher's with some rather funny lyrics ("It's through my big mouth/you can fly a plane") There's a stumble block with the less than stealer though still fantastic, Noel sang 'Magic Pie' but things get better with another anthem: 'Stand By Me'. 'The Girl In The Dirty Shirt' is classic feel good britpop and the Johnny Depp guest star piece 'Fade-In Out is pure blues rock. The title track is a great singalong and the grand finale 'All Around The World' is extremely bombastic but another spectacular sing along anthem. The album barrels on with another (though slightly repetitive) track 'It's Gettin' Better (Man!!)' before things finally end with the orchestral instrumental reprise of 'All Around the World' It's a looooong album and it's ridiculous over the top but god damn it I like. Noel still knows how to write a hell of an album and Liam is spectacular as always. Be Here Now isn't a masterpiece but it's a damn fine record that deserves more respect

The album that killed oasis? I beg to differ if this album was released by any other band then it would of been their career highlight. So much needless criticism over the years for this album, fair enough it isn't their best album but any album that would have to follow up definitely maybe and morning glory was destined to not be as good. Given the nickname 'cocain' by Noel Gallagher the album was criticized for over production. The standout tracks are dya know what I mean, stand by me, I hope I think I know, don't go away and fade in out which in my opinion is Liam Gallagher's best vocal performance since slide away. Although there are still some brilliant album tracks like girl in the dirty shirt, I hope I think I know, fade in out, be here now and its getting better there are 2 album tracks that I am not too keen on like magic pie and my big mouth. All around the world is a good song but is on way too long amf it just drags on after a while. Despite the small cons of the album it is still a classic and a brilliant album that is why it gets a 4.5/5.

Kicking off with what could be the best song ever, Be Here Now is another winner in every aspect, even with its failures and limitations. During the course of its 71 minutes, Oasis talk about how success changed their life ("Into my big mouth / you can fly a plane / I’ll be on my shoes while they're walking / Slowly down the hall of fame."), fighting against the masses ("They're trying hard to put me in my place / And that is why I've gotta keep running / The future is mine and it's no disgrace / 'Cause in the end the past means nothing / You tell me I'm free then you tie me down / And from my chains I think it's a pity / What did it cost you to wear my crown? / You don't like me, why don't you admit it?") and even have the time to get dirty ("If I may be so bold that I could say something / Come and make me my day / The clouds around your soul don't gather there for nothing / I can chase them all away."). Maybe, surrounded by major chords everywhere, it isn't evident on the first listen, but a second one reveal just how good are the riffs ("My Big Mouth") or the grooves ("Fade-In-Out", showing no other than actor and free-time musician Johhny Deep on slide guitar), if not the past swagger ("Be Here Now"). If nothing here reach the zenith of the first track (and how could any?), it's because the other songs are simply normal: "All Around the World", meanwhile, with its Symphonic crescendo, betrays the so much hated Progressive Rock tag the band utilized well without embracing it. The only little letdowns, here, are the funky, but downtuned plodding "Fade-In-Out" and the not-so-great whipper "I Hope, I Think, I Know", but since the album ends with the best of all these formulas used pretty everywhere ("It's Getting Better (Man!!!) being the only heroic song that can rival the opening cut), they're all forgivable.To some sorts, Noel Gallagher got reason: some of these cuts, especially the central ones, could have benefited by more controlled production (especially his only own sang-one, "Magic Pie", even if it's part of the song's theme), but musically speaking, they cannot be bettered. Noel Gallagher had always received praise after praise by everyone, even by no other than Metallica members, and not for nothing. Be Here now is a journey through blind optimism and trust, despite the occasional frictions, and the fact that the only cut played regularly from here is single "Stand By Me", the one who hasn't aged very well, is disappointing. While Definitely Maybe was a champion of coherence, Be Here Now is a champion of quantity. A prize worth as the other, if not more.Highlights:"D'You Know What I Mean?", "My Big Mouth", "Be Here Now", "It's Getting Better (Man!!!!).

Don't listen to all this BS about "Be Here Now" being bloated (wtf does that mean anyway....) or the beginning of the end of Oasis. This is a great, I mean GREAT record. There are a million bands who on their best day couldn't deliver this record and I think that if you look back upon it now in 2018 you too will realize just how good it was. The songs stand the test of time, end of discussion.

El tercer álbum de los de Manchester , visto por mucha gente como el álbum que mato el sonido de oasis.Para mi muy lejos de eso me parece un gran álbum con canciones increíbles pero de demasiada duración muchas de ellas y también algo sobre producido ,con demasiados arreglos.Aparte de eso si analizamos el álbum por sus temas y no por su duración o como están producidos nos sale el que sea probablemente su 3er mejor álbum de oasis sin duda.Temas a destacar diría Stand by Me ,Be Here Now ,o Don't Go Away.

If you have to write a book about what happened with Oasis and BHN, the title could easily be "The story of how Oasis (and the press and the people) killed Oasis". It is easy: no one, except for those four guys from Liverpool, could manage such a success and pressure and record a masterpiece. People break. We fall. It is a human condition. And Oasis broke. Because of the pressure to release another record like WTSMG. Because of the very price of success: no one tells you the truth. All you think, all you say and all you do is just right, and that's a huge problem. No one told Oasis to just stop. Nor the press, nor their closer ones, certainly not the cocaine and the money. And that is what you can almost hear on the record. An endless amount of adulation, enormous expectations and no control at all.A stomping wall of sound, filled with guitars, extremely overproduced, needlessly loud, with a questionable selection of tracks (considering what Noel released as b-sides at the time), even the order of the tracks in the album (9 minutes long a"All around the world", and just one song next the reprise). But despite all of this, and I take Liam words, the record is biblical. It is huge: the songs are good, powerful, catchy, and the groove is really cool. Even the artwork is fantastic. It could have been another masterpiece, not like Morning Glory, but a work of value. It may sound contradictory because of what I said earlier, but the album's is good: the historial context worked against it. People (represented by the press) was waiting for another WTSMG or DM, and they got BHN. That could explain the reaction and what happened to Oasis later, but taking that album apart from its historical context, it is a good one. I dare to say, 99% of pop/rock bands dreams with an album like BHN.It could have been better? No doubt. I am sure that, in the future, when Oasis would be no more than a memory, we will revalue Be Here now. It is a pity that NG didn't rework the album completely (just Do you know What I mean?) but that is enough proof of what a good remix could do: the justice the record deserves.

This album has suffered greatly from the 'follow-up effect'; it was the follow up to a hugely successful, classic album (or pair of albums in this case), and wasn't quite as good. As a result, it was branded a 'disappointment' which gives people the false impression that it's not a good record. I'm in agreement that it wasn't on the level of Definitely Maybe or Morning Glory, but despite some flaws it has aged well and several of the songs are among Noel Gallagher's best, with some of Liam's best vocal performances, the latter being one area in which it probably tops Morning Glory. 'D'You Know What I Mean' is a brilliant sing-along anthem of an opener, and sets the tone for the rest of the record. 'It's Gettin' Better Man' has a very inspiring theme and is melodically brilliant, while 'Stand By Me' is a lovely ballad featuring wonderful harmonising by the Gallaghers. 'Be Here Now' is also a good singalong tune, while 'All Around The World' is another huge anthem that was as bombastic and OTT as the band ever got, with strings, horns, key changes and an extended coda that reminds me of 'Hey Jude'.However, the album isn't perfect. Some of the songs like 'Magic Pie' and 'I Hope, I Think, I Know' bring the standard down, both musically and lyrically. In addition, a well-known feature of this album is its length, and while it suits certain numbers like 'D'You Know What I Mean' and 'All Around The World', many of the songs just feel too long and would benefit from edits. Similarly, many of the songs feel over-produced, and in places this compromises the bass and groove of the music. The overblown loudness makes a bit more sense when you realise that the band were all supercharged on coke during the recordingPartly due to the drugs involved, Noel always calls the album awful in interviews, probably due to feeling it should have been better. However, Liam’s view is more accurate about this one; it’s a great album, but just wasn’t Morning Glory or Definitely Maybe. I feel if another band had released Be Here Now, it would have a much better reputation.4.5/5

This album was their transition into the world of "has beens"...
