    I was looking in the EOC photo gallery for some of my favorite OOTN era pictures, and I happened across this one again. It's another one of those boat pictures from the same photo shoot as the Rollin' Stone picture. But, some of the guys about 3/4 naked here. Look like it's time for Glenn to call in the seamstress for the band again. (I Volunteer)

    I second that for Glenn. Don sure likes to keep warm, wish he had taken his shirt off. LOL

    Here is my version of the ratings system:

    1. Lyin' Eyes - 5
    2. One Of These Nights - 4
    3. Take It To The Limit - 4
    4. Too Many Hands - 3
    5. After The Thrill Is Gone - 3
    6. Hollywood Waltz - 3
    7. Visions - 2
    8. Journey Of The Sorcerer - 2
    9. I Wish You Peace - 1

    key:
    5 - I love it
    4 - I really like it
    3 - I like it
    2 - meh
    1 - yikes

    Maybe I am too hard on it, I don't know.

    I'm listening to After the Thrill is Gone right now... I really think it's one of my favorite songs from the Eagles. I just love it so much. While so much of it could seem cliche with it's metaphors... it's not. To me, it reaches a place we've all been. Being stuck in a rut, not sure how to move on, when you do finally move on, you don't know how to go about it, etc.

    "You're not quite lovers and you're not quite friends"

    "what can you do when your dreams come true, and it's not quite like you had planned"

    "Time passes and you must move on, Half the distance takes you twice as long"

    "Any kind of love without passion - That ain't no kind of lovin' at all"

    What is it about this song that people don't like?

    LTL, be fair. I think the majority of members here love this song. I'm the one who doesn't think it is as great as others do. Why? I suppose I can't really 'relate' to it. The lyrics you have quoted are all good but it does not speak to me personally. Soda said she used to think it 'dragged' and I suppose that is what I think.

    LTL, I agree with you and I love ATTIG. I think it is absolutely gorgeous - to me, the lyrics are wonderful (I think my favorite lyric is 'you keep on singing for the sake of the song', but they're all great), it has a beautiful melody (the bridge is amazing!), and Glenn's and Don's melancholy voices are just perfect.

    And FP, isn't it a bit presumptious to say that you are the only one here that doesn't like the song? Obviously, the song has it's detractors because it wasn't the megahit that OOTN, LE, or TITTL were. As I said earlier in this thread, Glenn has stated he thinks it is one of the band's most underrated songs, so that would also indicate that the song doesn't appeal to everyone. I happen to agree with him though - I personally think that the song is VERY underrated and it definitely speaks to me.
