Loved the Eagles. Not because my parents were hammering them into my head ever since I can remember, but because so many of their songs set a real standard for country rock in their time. Thought the band was DEAD till I found the album sitting in the 'new releases' section of a record store. As I listened to "What Do I Do With My Heart", something hits me. The Eagles have gone pop man... Not a bad album, but not ground breaking. No amazing record, only decent.

Eagles can still soar, sure. But not as high as they used to. Long Road out of Eden holds itself a couple gems with some mediocre filler, but for a fan of easy listening its certainly not a bad choice. But dont expect to be wow'd.

"Long Road Out of Eden" is a good album with a couple great songs. "How Long" is classic Eagles, with a catchy
twangy chorus and sounds a lot like "Take it Easy". "Waiting in the Weeds" is another standout track beautifully
written and sung by Don Henley. The main problem with "Eden" is that there's a lot of unnecessary filler and a lot of
uninspired mediocrity. Songs like "Guilty of the Crime", "Last Good Time in Town", and "Somebody" shouldn't have
ever been recorded. There is good music here, it just isn't sustained throughout the full hour and a half. If the band
had focused more on quality than quantity, this record could have been great overall but instead is a decent album
with several classic Eagles standouts. It probably satisfies most fans but won't win over too many new converts.

Bad news first, I guess- the record could have easily been one disc and the bad songs here are really, really bad. A lot of the songwriting is either tacky or just plain obvious here, as well. But if you're an Eagles fan, this just doesn't matter, as the band have made a record faithful to their roots- still the same old fantastic harmonies, some good guitar work (it's Joe Walsh, people- you can't go wrong!) and a title track that can proudly be shelved alongside some of the other truly great Eagles songs of yesteryear.
