Be Here Now - Oasis
Advantages: 12 great songs
Disadvantages: not quite as good as their first two albums
Be here now is the third studio album form the rock band oasis. I don't think that the album is their best work and it wasn't as commercially successful as their first albums or some of the later albums that followed it and some were saying that oasis had lost their form, however personally I still think the album is pretty good, it doesn't have some of the massive hits that the two albums before it had however its still a pretty good consistent album.
The first song off the album is called D'you know what I mean, its got a long opening but eventually begings with a nice singing verse with guitar and drums, the verse is quite good lyrics wish however I think it fails to have a really well written melody part in terms of instruments.
Stand by me is the fourth song off the album and it opens with a really amazing guitar solo going over the drums before the lyrics come it. Its quite a peaceful relaxing song, and its sung pretty nicely as well. I like it because of the good guitar all the way through mainly.
Me favourite song off this album though is don't go away, it's the eighth song off the album and it begins with another really cool guitar intro as well, I don't this is as catchy as some of their other songs and probably not even the catchiest off this album however I just really like the lyrics to this one and I think its sung really well.
All around the world is another really great song off the album, I think is one of the more catchy ones from the album and while its fairly slow it isn't really a sad song and it always makes me happy when I hear it.

This was the third album from oasis, I guess that with the success and how good their first two albums were it must have been hard to try and top them yet again, and they didn't manage it, however they didn't fail as they still managed to record 12 more fantastic songs and make another really good album.
Summary: another good oasis album
