Beware the words "Digitally Remasterd",
This review is from: The Very Best of the Eagles (Audio CD)
This is an album that as the advert goes "does exactly as it says on the tin" It is The Eagles and it is their greatest hits. The songs have been remastered however which means the rough edges have been smoothed off, the i`s have been dotted and the t`s have been crossed and the songs are made generally more easier to listen too. The only trouble is that it is like giving Macbeth a feather duster to kill the Scottish king with. The songs may have been brought into the twenty first century but they lack that raw gutsy emotionally charged feel that made the original songs such classics.
Okay these are still brilliant songs by a brilliant band but if you wanted to play The Eagles to your Granny I`d play this C.D. However, if like me you were brought up on heavy rock discos air guitaring to the solo of Hotel California then I`d stick to the original albums.
