"Long Road Out Of Eden"
Hell froze over again for the Eagles, as we know the story why the band broke up in 1980 after their studio
release The Long Run: "Hell will freeze over when we get back together again." (Don Henley) In 1994, the
part-live, part-studio album
Hell Freezes Over was
released, and it would take years for an all-new studio album. That year would be 2007: Long Road Out Of Eden
Incredibly, Long Road Out Of Eden would become a 2-disc set. It was long overdue for any NEW recordings
from one of the best bands to come out of the 1970s decade, as well as from the state of California.
Her Special Collection has twice the songs plus one (21 songs). Of the 10 that were on Greatest Hits,
9 songs were already part of Special Collection: "Snowbird," "Danny's Song," "A Love Song," "You Won't See
Me," "I Just Fall In Love Again," "Shadows In The Moonlight," "Broken Hearted Me," "Daydream Believer."
(The one song not on Special Collection: "Could I Have This Dance.")
The first disc: "No More Walks In The Wood" is an incredibly good song, as it reflects the harmonies, surely
resembling Crosby, Stills, Nash (and/or) Young. "How Long" is the traditional rocking Eagles. They are back with
this one, as it is a fine rocking tune; sure to add this one to their other classic upbeat Rock songs. "Busy Being
Fabulous" is another great tune, sung by Don Henley.
"What Do I Do With My Heart" is a nice ballad. "Guilty Of The Crime" is another pretty good rocking
tune. "I Don't Want To Hear Any More" is an easy, laid back rock song, as it could be a song easily sung by
Bonnie Raitt. ""Waiting In The Weeds" is a nice, quiet song, likewise the next song, "No More Cloudy Days."
"Fast Company" is a good tune, with it's high vocals (some say it may be that of a Bee Gees impersonation,
which I disagree. The vocals are bit off, and with its particular musical style being different than the Eagles, Prince
comes to mind, as if he this song could be one of his.
"Do Something" and "You Are Not Alone" are nice, laid back sounding tunes. Where on "You Are Not
Alone," the melody of Bob Marley's "No Woman No Cry" seems to float around in my head.
Disc two begins with the title track, a kind of mysterious tune, a song that could be used for a western movie soundtrack.
"I Dreamed There Was No War" is a beautiful, very beautiful instrumental. Another rocker, "Someobdy," has the
melody of Robert Palmer's "Bad Case Of Loving You" in my head. Don Henley gets the lead vocal on "Frail Grasp On
The Big Picture," easily telling Eagle fans that this song is definitely recorded by The Eagles. Joe Walsh's "Last
Good Time In Town" is just a cool tune, and is almost in the style of the solo Keith Richards.
"I Love To Watch A Woman Dance" is quiet, peaceful. "Business As Usual" is a cool-driving rock song.
Nice & easy goes for "Center Of The Universe," and the closing tune, "It's Your World Now" has a cool Spanish
Long overdue, The Eagles have returned with another set of great new music. As for any future releases of new material,
the chances of that is slim. The bandmembers have said it's highly unlikely the Eagles will return with a new album.
However, Joe Walsh mentioned that there may be a possibility. We can only hope. (Another 14 years? Let's hope not.)
We all know the famous rockers of the '60s, and '70s are getting up there in age. But you have to give them credit --
You're never too old to Rock & Roll. Die-hard Eagle fans pray for new material on a regular basis, but if it happens,
it will. If not, we still have their incredible music, which will last a lifetime, and future generations.
