Eagles: Desperado, it is full of the best classic rock sound that anybody can enjoy. This album has a sort of old west outlaw theme to it, you’ll notice that all of the songs on this album sound very…country-ish. But needless to say, that’s what makes the Eagles so unique, they can take a theme that is so out there, and create an album of magic and enjoyment. With deep lyrics and lots and lots of acoustic guitar followed with harmonica and such and such, this album is definitely a must have in any collection.
This album is easily one of my all time favorites. It has everything I would hope to hear from the Eagles. This is by far probably one of the top 10 albums on my iTunes, it has such soul and power in it. Although, the songs may be fairly short, they all have great meaning, and the lyrics are just spot on.
I secretly like the fact that this album is short in time, because it makes it fun to listen to. When songs are super long, they sometimes tend to drag on and on, but with this, you get the purity of the Eagles in every song. Though, some long songs aren’t always bad, they have one or two 5+ minute songs in the Eagles Greatest Hits, Vol 2 album, which I also enjoy.
I just like the fact that, regardless of the amount of time that this band has been around, they still never seize to amaze music listeners; and even if it’s not your type of music, it’s good to give it a listen, especially the vocals. It’s such a tantalizing voice, it’s almost impossible not to love it.
There really isn’t a whole lot to say about this album, or the Eagles in general, it’s sort of a “you have to listen to it for yourself” sort of thing.
