Review: The Eagles

Long Road Out of Eden (Universal)

There's something strangely reassuring about an Eagles record ... I say strange because the US supergroup have never really pushed the boat out musically - they're a safe pair of hands, with plenty of commercial success but little invention.

Indeed, many might say music's Mr Reliables are more yawn-sters than monsters of rock. Nevertheless, like the aroma of your mother's home cooking or the smell of freshly mown grass, listening to The Eagles is a comforting memory of youth that refuses to go away.

And it is a case of 'safety first' yet again on their new album, Long Road Out of Eden, reportedly their last.

Best are the epic title track and What Do I Do With My Heart.

So there's good and bad news for fans and non-fans alike ... the band haven't changed a bit and the band haven't changed a bit!
