REVIEW:

Joe Walsh is still my favorite Eagle. That being said, the great majority of his work is that of an old man trying to recapture his youth. Everything is either too slow or too hard. All of the tempo is gone and the material requires multiple listens. Hell, I’d kill for a hook. But, that’s  not to say that the album is bad.

The album is challenging and it makes you want to become a better listener. There are some truly great tracks on the album and the way they are performed will surely have fans of Joe hankering for him to come to a town so close to them so they can take it in live. The tremendous Lucky That Way, Spanish Dancer and India are polished, reflective and so sweet to listen to, so sweet and so well put together that it’s a shame Joe left it 20 years before stepping into the studio to record for himself again. However, the return was well worth the wait.

POST EDIT:
I have to say that the lack of hooks isn’t bothering me. It’s not like I’m listening to a James Gang reunion. What we’re getting here is something refreshing in an industry driven by youth, glamour and superficiality. I had more to this review originally, but it was eaten during the great site migration of last year. Thanks to Joe Walsh dot com for linking in.
