 Dont listen to the critics, this is a cracking album

First of all many people always compare every Oasis album to the Definatley maybe and Morning glory instead of just accepting each album individually and Be here now is a fantastic record. Dyou know what I mean, Stand by me, all around the world, Be here now, Magic pie, I hope I think I know, My big mouth and The girl in the dirty shirt are all outstanding Oasis tracks. An amazing album.

 A very under-rated album!!!

This is album contains some of Oasis greatest works!! and, imo, shows off Noel Gallagher's skills as a songwriter better than other Oasis albums!! The songs, especially their lyrics, are deep and meaningful!! I'll admit that this album probly isn't as good as 'Definitely Maybe' or 'Morning Glory', but, it's still a personal fave of mine!!

It contains two #1 singles, 'D'You What I Mean?' and 'All Around The World' Both long, drawn out songs, but that shows Noel's skills, that these long songs keep u listening right the way through!! It also contains the brilliant single 'Stand By Me', as well as the beautiful 'Dont Go Away'!!

Some songs like 'Magic Pie' and 'Fade In-Out' are kinda slow, and my seem 'bloated', but, they are top tunes!! and if they are too slow for ya, then listen to the fast rockers on this album, like 'It's Gettin Better (Man!!)', 'My Big Mouth', 'Be Here Now' and 'I Hope, I Think, I Know'...

Overall, I can't understand why a single song off this amazing album didn't make it onto 'Stop The Clocks', but, there's a lot on here that deserved to!! (btw, at the time of writing this, it's priced at £3.99!! and trust me, it's worth a lot more than that!!!)

 Brilliant ... ignore the critics

Even up to this very day I still love to listen to Be Here Now.
Lets face it, it had a lot to live up to, Definately Maybe and Morning Glory are two of the greatest records ever made. It was always going to be an impossible task to out shine their previous glory, and of course it gave the critics a field day.
I ignore all the bad press though, and even Noel to a certain extent. There are some brilliant songs on this album, my personal faves are Stand By Me, Don't Go Away, I Hope I Think I Know, Girl In The Dirty Shirt and Its Gettin' Better Man. How Stand By Me was kept off Stop The Clocks will always remain a mystery to me.
Anyone who is only just getting into Oasis, I strongly recommend this album ... whatever you do, don't compare it to their earlier albums like some idiots did. Just accept that this album is part of who Oasis are today ... did they crumble? Far from it ...
Live Forever

Top 100 Music Reviewer

in retrospect, and compared to Oasis' more recent efforts, i, amongst many others, have been decidedly harsh on Be Here Now.

while this album is definately flawed, ther are certainly gems on here. Dont Go Away and epic D'You Know What I Mean? are easily amongst my top 15 Oasis songs ever while songs like Stand By Me and I Hope I Think I know would easily be standout tracks if they appeared on the Dont Believe The Truth and Heathen Chemistry.

All Around The World however, is massively over-the-top and eventually bored me to death while the title track is an absolute mess. excessive drugs made this an album of two extremes - on one hand they gave birth to some fine songs that they probably otherwise wouldnt have existed if they were clean, it would appear that it was also the drugs which led to the stodgy cack on this album too.

not perfect, but certainly no disgrace either. compared to their recent output (and that of many other recent rock bands), this is a worthy effort.
