Eagle-Eye has managed the almost unthinkable by creating a beautiful album that outshines the superb 'Desireless' in almost every department.
This is a wonderful mix of rock and acoustic tunes, with Eagle-Eye saving his best for the gentler 'Promises Made' and the sublime 'Long way Round' a duet with sister Neneh, which could be the best thing either will ever have their name against.
Despite his illustrious family ties, Eagle-Eye has produced a sound that is peculiarly his own, and has proved without question he is far from being in the shadow of his sister. This album represents a man at his musical best.

This is a terrific album. Its jazzy, easy listening and free-flowing. This second effort by Eagle Eye Cherry is definitely on par, if not better than his first. The ecoustics are good, and there is even a touch of the Hendrix vibe in there.

Desireless has been a firm favourite of mine for a while and i could not believe he could better it, but he has. There is not a poor track on this Cd with some notable high spots being, the James Taylorish 'Promises Made', 'Are you still having fun' which is a wonderful uptempo fusion of guitar types and the duet with sister Neneh 'Long Way Around'. If you like, or even think you might like Eagle Eye Cherry this is a must. If you like this type of music then Lena Marlin may also appeal.

Eagle-Eye Cherry is my favorite artist, his lyrics are amazing and his songs flow like rivers, he paints such vivid pictures and I can feel and share the love and enjoyment which he has given me through his music.

I bought Desireless, mainly on the back of Save Tonight, when it was first released some 8 years ago. I have always liked the album but i was never quite sure why - the tracks (of which maybe three are genuinely great songs) are comprised of very simple melodies and the lyrics are obvious and uninspiring (and on some tracks a little naive and embarrassing) - there is little depth to the album and it is rather one-dimensional. Any yet, over 8 years, i have found myself returning to the album time and time again and enjoying the experience. On my last listen, i decided to see what else Eagle-Eye had been up to so, going by the glowing testimonies of the previous reviewers, i purchased a second hand copy of this album. And... Oh dear. It is really not very good at all. That's not to say it's bad, it's just bland, unengaging and, well, boring. It doesn't appear to do anything or go anywhere. After several listens i cannot see what will entice me to coming back to listen again. And the duet with Neneh is awful! It is much more rocky that it's predecesor and it just does nothing for me whatsoever. I suppose it is always possible that over the next 8 years i may grow to like this release too, but i doubt it. Prospective buyers, leave this one on the shelf. If you are looking for an Eagle-Eye Cherry album buy Desireless - it may also be a little bland but it has that little spark of inspiration that you will have you scratching your head for years, wondering why you are compelled to listen to it time and time again. I suspect that this is not the case with Living in the Present Future. Oh well. I had hope.
