A Great Record Going Round from 2013

What could be construed as a Top 10 list of this year.  If this was actually a Top 10 list, this would probably be 7ish or 8ish on the list.  If it was.

You can not underestimate the power of a great front man.  Liam Gallagher is still one of the great front men of all time.  He truly is a classic.  Up there will all the greats, many of whom have past on.  Liam is still here and still providing enjoyable output.

BE didn’t seem concerned with a US release date and so fare Beady Eye are not too concerned with a US tour.  You know what? They don’t need us.  You think it is so cool to break through in the US until you see what it breaking through and then you just want to break stuff.

On BE (all songs written by Gallagher, Archer, and Bell) there is also some great production work from Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio).  He adds some new layers to this band that could really help them grow.  The first album wasn’t great but had some good rockers.  It was fun to listen to a few times but as an avid music listener it was easy to see how this one trick pony could get put out to pasture after a few races.   Dave Sitek added a new dimension that is both surprising to see suggested but maybe even more surprising the band accepted it.

Again Liam is one of the best front men but not known as a great song writer.  But boy does he do just the right amount to get by and even occasionally impresses.  He shows some depth into life’s questions and even into politics and “the man.”  Sitek pokes a sharp stick full of psychedelic influences into this Beady Eye.  A great way to direct a band with much inspiration from Lennon and The Beatles.  Liam’s vocals are also featured out front in the mix and he is the large pupil in this Beady Eye.   The more you let BE, BE, it grows on you.  It is certainly A Great Spool Going Round in 2013.

About Spool Going Round

If you like my blog and have access to programming and would like to do a radio/internet show together, please contact me. spoolgoinground@yahoo.com My name is Mike. I am an on-air radio DJ. I fell in love with radio in Chicago and then took that passion to someplace where I could actually get on the air. My travels took me to Seattle, WA, Eugene and Portland, OR and Washington D.C., where I was able to have my own morning show. I've had crab cakes with Warren Zevon, sat backstage with Sting, had Melissa Etheridge sing to me from the front row and I loved every minute of it. That passion for music still burns strong in me and I love to talk music and be turned on to music. Sharing new music with people is what got me interested in radio in the first place. It is wonderful to be able to talk music with you. "Go ahead you're on the air..." Read more: http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/spool-going-round/about-spool-going-round.html#ixzz1Bfx7V0ug
