You think to yourself what can an aging band who haven't recorded stuff for ages come up with. Can they at least come up with something like Hotel California. This is the eagles we are talking about here.
And then they come up with Long road out of eden, one of the most exquisite albums that I have heard. New and old at the same time. Bloody brilliant. Stand out tracks include Long road out of eden and waiting in the weeds. Give it a couple of listens. All they have is some video on myspace. Here it is.
The imagery in this song is a lot like that of Don Henley's old favorites of mine: "End of innocence" and "Boys of summer".
If I had not known better, I would relegate this song too to one of the old albums. They have not lost any of that.
