Editors’ Notes

This album is Mastered for iTunes. Their first album since 1994's Hell Freezes Over finds the desperados in fine form, despite Don Felder's departure. The opening cut proves that Eagles can still soar those lofty harmonies like nothing's changed. But it's the catchy twang-rocker "How Long" that unlocks the time portal to the ‘70s, giving the song a faded denim shirt and long hair. It sounds reminiscent of their old J.D. Souther penned hit "Take It Easy" because they hired Souther to write this one too. Actually, most of these songs invoke bits of the Eagles' past, giving fans what they want by mining the tones and melodies of yesteryear. The warm Rhodes keys and Timothy B. Schmit's androgynous inflections in "I Don't Want To Hear Anymore" recalls 1979's soft rock hit "I Can't Tell You Why." And it's hard to listen to the sultry "Frail Grasp On the Big Picture" without thinking of 1977's "Life In The Fast Lane." Even the acoustic picking in "Center of the Universe" summons a "Hotel California" vibe. The title track begins with a Middle Eastern-inspired intro and unfolding lyrics that touch on the troubled times of the Dubya administration, but it still resonates with the comforting familiarity of songs recorded when Jimmy Carter held office.

Customer Reviews

Nice collection for Eagles fans

Don't understand the comment about going "country". This album has about the same mix of styles as their previous albums. Very much in character for them. Modern country has a very 70's-80's rock sound these days. People who really know this band will know this classic Eagles sound. Check it all out.

Shut up! I'm going to be fair

This was the first realesed material from the band since 1979, released in 2007. so ofcourse everyone was eager to check it out. Well, we defenitely see a change in direction, this is undeniably "country-music" which is a genre I personaly detest. But, I want to give the eagles a chance. It is "good" country, while most of the stuff on the radio sounds the same, this has some uniqness and quality to it. I wish atleast some of it would have rocked out, and Joe walsh could wip out a killer solo intended for radioplay, but if you are in a mellow mood with nothing to do, you can get into this pretty easily. One problem is, it's too long. One disk was all that was needed, some songs feel like fillers and thats rediculous if you're totaling 20 songs. The ones they want you to like are: How Long- ok, but too much like modern country, needed to rock, really got anoying after awhile Busy Being Fabulous- resembles oldtime eagles, probably one of the highlights No More Cloudy Days-cliche lyrics, mellow tune, good sax Others to consider: Guilty of the Crime- more of a Joe Walsh tune, but take what you can get Waiting In the Weeds- my favorite, catchy, deep lyrics, needed a cool solo Fast company- kinda like an old 70's pop tune Somebody- good bass, good sound/tune, you get into it I can't give this 5 stars, if it had rock singles/songs that won't be forgotten in a year I would. The real kicker is that "The Long Road Out of Eden" song rocks. If only they'd have trimmed it, it is the best song on the album but you'll never hear it on the radio and it's "album only" here. Most comeback albums are absolutly terrible, not this. for a good effort in keeping a variation of the old sound and noticable quality I tip my hat.

Eh it's alright

I was hoping for more rock tunes than country mellow ones. There are a few good songs on here but the others....well the others are just there. The two songs to definately get are "Waiting in the Weeds" and "No More Cloudy Days". "How Long" and "Busy Being Fabulous" are also good ones, but so is "Somebody". Another one i liked was "It's Your World Now", it reminds me of Elvis Presley's "It's Now or Never" for some odd reason. "Last Good Time in TOWN" not "Time" is an odd song, but then again it's Walsh.

With five number one singles, 14 Top 40 hits, and four number one albums, the Eagles were among the most successful recording artists of the 1970s. At the end of the 20th century, two of those albums -- Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) and Hotel California -- ranked among the ten best-selling albums ever, and the popularity of 2007's Long Road Out of Eden proved the Eagles' staying power in the new millennium. Though most of its members came from outside California, the group was closely identified...
