Liam Gallagher has showered his upcoming second Beady Eye album with huge praise, claiming that the record is good enough to stand up to Oasis' best work.
Gallagher claims to have taken more risks on the band's second album, and also claims that the album should have been released by Oasis during their heyday - instead of their critically divisive release, Be Here Now.
"This is the record Oasis should have made after (What's The Story) Morning Glory?" Liam says in a new interview with NME, although unlike brother Noel, declines to criticise Be Here Now, saying that he is still proud of the record.
"I'm not saying it's better than Be Here Now or it's going to be this or that - I love Be Here Now, I won't have a bad word said about it but when you're selling 20 million records, you've got people there going, 'Oh let's just chuck out that formula again'.
"So I'm a bit disappointed we didn't ever do it. But this f**king record: we've booted the door off the hinges and steamed right in there, into this other world."
He also speaks of his disappointment at poor sales of Beady Eye's debut album, adding: "Maybe it was too quick after Oasis... But you can blame it on this, you can blame it on that... at the end of the day people just didn't f**king buy it, they didn't get it, it didn't connect, so back to the drawing board."
