Just because it took them 13 years Warsaw Concerto - Louis Clark Conducting The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - Great Hits From Hooked O deliver a studio sequel to their live album Hell Freezes Overdon't say it took the Eagles a long time to cash in on their reunion.
They started cashing in almost immediately, driving up ticket prices into the stratosphere as they played gigs on a semi-regular basis well into the new millennium. So, why did it take them so long to record a new studio album? It could be down to the band's notoriously testy relations -- Don Felder did leave and sue the band in the interim, settling out of court in -- it could be that they were running out some contractual clause somewhere, it could be that they were waiting for the money to be right, or the music to be right.
It doesn't really matter: there was no pressing need for a new album. Fans were satisfied by the oldies, and the band kept raking in the dough, so they could take their Een Nest Jongen - Flat Earth Society - Isms making a new album.
And did they ever take their time -- the year gap between Hell Freezes Over and Long Road Out of Edentheir first album since 's The Long Runwas Guilty Of The Crime - Eagles - Long Road Out Of Eden as long as that between their breakup and reunion. Far from indulging in a saturation campaign for this long-awaited record, the Eagles released the double-disc Long Road Out of Eden with surgical precision, indulging in few interviews and bypassing conventional retail outlets in favor of an exclusive release with Wal-Mart, which is not only the biggest retailer in America but also where a good chunk of the band's contemporary audience -- equal parts aging classic rockers and country listeners -- shops.
The album was also available on the group's official website, eaglesband. It was a savvy move to release Long Road Out of Eden as a Wal-Mart exclusive, but the album is savvier still, crafted to evoke the spirit and feel of the Eagles ' biggest hits.
The Eagles burrow so deeply into their classic sound that they sound utterly disconnected from modern times, no matter how hard Don Henley strives to say something, anything about the wretched state of the world on "Long Road Out of Eden," "Frail Grasp on the Big Picture," and Guilty Of The Crime - Eagles - Long Road Out Of Eden as Usual.
That trio fits neatly into the second disc of Long Road Out of Edenwhich generally feels stuck in the late '80s, as Walsh spends seven minutes grooving on "Last Good Time in Town" as if he were a Southwestern Jimmy Buffett with a worldbeat penchant, Glenn Frey sings Jack Tempchin and John Brannen 's "Somebody" as if it were a sedated, cheerful "Smuggler's Blues," and the whole thing feels polished with outdated synthesizers. None of this is necessarily bad, however, as it's all executed well and the doggedly out-of-fashion sonics only make the songs more reminiscent of the Eagles ' older records, especially if their solo work from the '80s is part of the equation.
If that second disc does seem a bit like the Eagles ' lost album from the Reagan years, the first disc recalls their mellow country-rock records of the '70s -- that is, if Joe Walsh had been around to Shake Hands With Mother Again - The Happy Land Gospel Singers - I Bowed My Head To God In Prayer Frankie Miller 's blues-rocker "Guilty of the Crime" to balance out Henley and Frey 's "Busy Being Fabulous" and "What Do I Do with My Heart," a counterpoint that serves Various - Dont Share Needles Vol 1 band well.
That first disc is the stronger of the two, but the two discs do fit together well, as they wind up touching upon all of the band's different eras, from the early days to their solo hits. It's designed to please those fans who have been happy to hear the John Mellencamp* - Dance Naked songs over and over again, whether it's on the radio or in those pricey concerts -- listeners who want new songs that feel old, but not stale.
