Different Gear, Still Speeding is the debut album by the English rock band Beady Eye, released on 28 February 2011.[11] It debuted at #3 in the UK albums chart selling 66,817 in the first week, and had sold approximately 157,000 copies in the UK as of November 2011.[12] On the album all members contributed to the instrumentation, much like the latter days of Oasis.

Track listing

All songs written and composed by Gallagher/Archer/Bell except where noted. 

Special Edition

There is a special edition of the album, which includes a DVD with music videos for "Bring the Light", "Four Letter Word" and "Sons of the Stage", as well as a documentary entitled RAK Them Out.[14] Japanese copies will include the music video for "The Roller".[13] A Japan-only "Limited Tour Edition" includes a bonus DVD featuring highlights from the concert in Paris on 13 March 2011, containing twelve songs in 52 minutes, and music videos including "The Beat Goes On".

Reception

Reviews of the album have been mostly positive. According to review compiler Metacritic, the album holds a 65.[15]

Simon Goddard, reviewing for Q, gave the album four-out-of-five stars and described it as "the strongest record Liam's made" since (What's the Story) Morning Glory?,[16] while Garry Mulholland, in his three-star review for Uncut, denied that the album "remotely matches" Definitely Maybe, but felt the album was a step in the right direction from Oasis. Mojo also gave the album four stars, citing Gallagher's singing as a highlight.[4] The Fly, however, remarked that the album was "dull", and a disappointment, while Scotland on Sunday added that Noel Gallagher is missed as a songwriting partner.[17][18] The BBC and The Independent both commented that the album bests Oasis' later music, if not lacking innovation from the previous group,[4] while The Sun praised the album's simplicity and variety, citing "Bring the Light" as a surprising highlight, a comment that NME repeated.[5] The album is generally agreed to have surpassed expectations: Mojo remarking that the album "shaped up better than many imagined," and Q saying that it "decimates all negative preconceptions."
