iTunes Review

Having found himself back with The Eagles, guitarist Joe Walsh hasn't had as much time to pursue the louder end of his musical spectrum. Produced by Jeff Lynne, Analog Man features the dense harmonies and tight arrangements you'd expect from an encounter with the man who gave Electric Light Orchestra, Tom Petty's Full Moon Fever, and The Traveling Wilburys their sound. Yet the guitars are also plenty loud, and even on a tightly compressed and quick track like "Wrecking Ball," Walsh finds the space to crank out a few riffs. "Lucky That Way," cowritten by Tommy Lee James, sounds like the follow-up to Walsh's classic 1978 hit "Life's Been Good." "Funk 50" is an update of Walsh's James Gang's "Funk 49." It's tidied up like it's 1993, and Walsh's last solo album, Songs for a Dying Planet, has a timely follow-up. "Band Played On" adds a sitar. "Spanish Guitar" works through country, flamenco, and pop. "Family" brings in David Crosby and Graham Nash for harmony. "India" lets Walsh try out some very digital-sounding equipment. Could this merry prankster be kidding us with all this talk of being an Analog Man?

Customer Reviews

Get the "bonus" version!

Wonderful new release from Joe -- glad to have you back! But definitely get the BONUS version of this release. One of the best tunes - "Fishbone" - is on it, a great funky stomping piece. Also a nice bonus track of the James Gang with Little Richard, and a 16 minute video. Much better than the non-bonus version.

Joe and Jeff

What a great record! Joe Walsh under the direction of the brilliant Jeff Lynne was a unlikely pairing but it sounds great. Like he did with Tom Petty, Paul McCartney, George Harrison on their albums he brings out the best in great artists!

Family

With Graham Nash and David Crosby signing backup vocals, I get chills listening to this song. By far, the best song on the album.

From his early hits with the James Gang through to his tenure with the Eagles — as well as a successful solo career — Joe Walsh remained one of the most colorful characters in rock & roll, lending his distinctively reedy vocals, off-the-wall lyrics, and expansive guitar leads to a series of AOR staples including "Funk #49," "Rocky Mountain Way," and "Life's Been Good."
