Singing along in my Subaru is one of my favorite activities, and my favorite people to sing along with are The Eagles, particularly Don Henley and Glen Fry. Their latest effort, many years in the making and available only at WalMart is a wonderful collection of new work reminicent of the old style and hitting on new problems. And can the boys still sing! So many times, bands should stop while they're ahead, while the memories of their music is at its height. Crosby, Stills and Nash...they should have given up five years ago. And, please, don't torture yourself with the latest incarnations of Air Supply.
But these guys? They so still have it. All of them. Long Road Out of Eden is the perfect follow-up to Hell Freezes Over. I put "How Long" on repeat and sing at the top of my lungs. "Like a blue bird with its heart removed...I've run just as far as I can run..." or the piece, "What Do I Do With My Heart" which melts my heart every time I hear Glen and Don sing it. I just want to hold those two men and tell them everything will be okay.
And for sure fun, you can never ever go wrong with Joe. His unique guitar sound is evident on "Guilty of the Crime" as well as his trademark sense of humor.
You guys are wonderful and inspire me. Thanks!
