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

The singer was speaking in a world-exclusive interview in this week's Christmas issue of NME, on UK newsstands tomorrow (December 15) and available digitally worldwide.

He declared the album, out February 28, a "fucking 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 fucking massive".

Elsewhere in the interview Gallagher gave his views on new bands including The Vaccines and Brother. He branded the former "boring" and accused Brother of being "little fucking posh lads with tattoos".

Liam also spoke about his relationship with Noel Gallagher following Oasis' split in August 2009.
