Mellowed with age.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Long Run (Audio CD)
I remember eagerly awaiting the successor to the wonderful 'Hotel California' only to be hugely disappointed by the eventual release of 'The Long Run'. Very few tracks actually sounded like The Eagles that I had come to love over those early-to-mid seventies years. The vinyl version of the album that was to be their last for another fourteen years, sat on my shelf unplayed. It came to be the only CD of theirs that I did not possess and, eventually, I gave in to the fact that this missing link was driving me crazy and went ahead and purchased it. Well, lo and behold, it proved to to be quite a lot better than I remembered. Before buying it the second time round, I learnt that the band were under a hell of a lot of pressure to come up with something equally as good as 'Hotel California' and I think that this has influenced my new judgement. Either that, or I really am mellowing with age!
