Be Here Now

Postby Digsys_Diner » 23 Sep 2013, 06:31

What did you think of the album? Compared to DM and WTSMG, its the stepping point away from their "conventional" radio hit singles, and more into Noel's creativity and sheer genius. It took a couple listens, but quickly The Girl In The Dirty Shirt, Its Getting Better Man, All Around The World, I Hope, I Think, I Know, and Dont Go Away, Stand By Me to name a couple...all became my absolute favourite songs. Its upsetting that Noel thought so poorly about the album in their later years, and rarely played the songs.

Really underrated album though (and possibly just as good as DM, and WTSMG as far as rock n roll standards go) along with Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants.

I like it and I have some very good nostalgia around it and the time it was released :d

The song writing on BHN I think is as good as the other two albums, but also something of a progression. But the problem with the album overall, I think, is that is is far too over-produced. There's just too much in it.

I posted previously that I'd loved to hear a stripped back version of it, kind of BHN Naked.

Actually I'll take a bit of that back... looking back through the older threads there's a good discussion on BHN on about page 25... disconnected1976 hits the nail on the head about the album. He compares it to Urban Hymns, also a long album, but one that has ups and downs, that is a journey and has quiet pauses and times for reflection; whereas BHN is just full throttle for all 11 tracks. There's no downtime - it's just full on throughout.

BHN Naked would be an amazing re-release if they ever get around to it in 20-30 years.

Songs like The Girl In The Dirty Shirt, All Around The World, Its Getting Better Man would sound incredible if they stripped the million guitar tracks on each song.

I would happily watch a feature length video of Artemisia being tortured, raped and brutally murdered.

I'm not just saying that for effect either, I would genuinely enjoy that.

I can only apologise for leaving you alone on this forum with them. It was like the fall of Saigon when the mentally ill sharpie and the painfully unfunny artemisia poured en masse into the general section. We got the last helicopter out, but there was only enough room on it for the elite.

The critics were wrong. They didn't get it. It's a great album-almost as good as the first two.
