Liam Gallagher says Beady Eye better than Oasis debut

There’s confidence and then there’s CON-FI-DENCE.

Liam Gallagher has told NME that he thinks Beady Eye's debut album, “Different Gear, Still Speeding” – due February 28 - contains songs "as good as 'Definitely Maybe,' if not better."

Ballsy or what?

1994’s “Definitely Maybe” sold millions of copies and established Oasis as a band to be reckoned with right out of the gate. The album regularly rates in the top 10 of British album polls, and often at #1 – ahead of music by The Beatles.

Gallagher was speaking in a world-exclusive interview in this week's Christmas issue of NME, on UK newsstands December 15.

He declared the album, out February 28, a "f**king top debut."

Gallagher said: "The musicians are better [than Oasis circa-'Definitely Maybe'], without a doubt. I'm singing as well as I ever have." He added that the album is "up there, no question" with 'Definitely Maybe' and added that "we're gonna be f**king massive".
