    Happy 3rd Birthday to Analog Man!

    It's still Joe's new album to me. I always have a couple of Analog Man tracks on the list, when I fancy listening to some Walsh, (which is very often).

    Mostly; Analog Man, Wrecking Ball & Band Played On
    Not quite so much; Spanish Dancer, Hi Roller Baby, One Day At A Time, India & Funk 50
    Rarely; Lucky That Way, Family and the two bonus tracks.

    The live versions are pretty good too. The last time I listened to India, it sounded better than ever.

    I wish all the tracks were longer.

    An interview clip I stumbled across from the release period of Analog Man. (Like the clips I added in Glenn's thread, this may already be here somewhere.) I love the way he credits Marjorie for the completion of the album.

    I'm so glad Joe did this album. It's great that he's still active and I hope he's not done yet.

    Ah, Analog Man...

    I have to say two things.

    First, I'm glad Joe is still active and I am thankful he put something out. Regardless of my comments to come, I'll take any Joe Walsh music any way I can get it.

    Now to the negative stuff (lol). This album has not aged well for me. To me the ELO-style Jeff Lynne sheen over these songs is palpable. And I don't like ELO lol. I do like pop rock, but 1/3 of these songs are just to cheesy for me, and not even in Joe's typical way (I love songs like ILBTs, etc). It's just filler IMO.

    The standout tracks on this album for me are the title track (which he still plays live, so that's saying something), Wrecking Ball, and One Day At A Time (although I still prefer the F1 version of that).

    Songs like Hi-Roller Baby and Fishbone are songs that I never listen to, honestly. Ick. Lucky That Way and Band Played On are ok. Funk 50 is cool. Spanish Dancer, India, Family, and But I Try I don't care either way.

    IMO, it's just not like his 70s and even later output. It just has this icing on everything that screams Jeff Lynne.

    Am I the only one who likes "Hi-Roller Baby"? So catchy!

    I do agree that some are a bit much. I don't really like "India" and "Spanish Dancer." "But I Try" doesn't really count for me. It's just supposed to be a "How cool, a vintage James Gang/Little Richard jam" moment.

    Happy 5th Birthday to Analog Man. My second favorite Joe album.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley
