    Haha, that's what I love about it! But I'm a rock n' roll fan, not a smooth country-rock fan. I'm a headbanger, lol. I love big distorted guitars like AC/DC or Guns N' Roses.

    It seems to me there are at least two camps of Eagles fans - those who love the vocal harmonies, smooth early country rock sound who like lyrical depth and storytelling and more softer sounds. They tend to love traditional country music or soft rock. They don't care for big bombastic rebellious rock and roll with loud guitars. Then there are those who love that big guitar band sound of the later period where it was more akin to the Stones or Aerosmith and love that raw rock n' roll energy and are more classic AOR rock fans who think listening to the Byrds or Merle Haggard would be a pretty uncomfortable experience. I'm in the latter group, lol. I like country, but the newer stuff that doesn't sound like classic country. It's more either rock based or RNB/EDM/Pop based. That I like. More of the Luke Bryan/Jason Aldean/Thomas Rhett stuff.

    Wow! This round is a real nailbiter. It's neck and neck and every vote is important. I hate to have to pit two excellent songs against each other, but I think that's the way this game is going to be from here on out. There may be more strategic voting and alliances in our future. It's the kind of game that some love for the excitement while others may tear their hair out.

    I vote for Out of Control.

    I love it - the guitars, bass and drums are great. But I’m not a fan of Glenn’s lead vocal here. I’m not referring to his singing but the production. It sounds like he was being recorded from a closet. Whatever effect they were going for with this - gritty rock or whatever - falls a bit short. The live version is definitely better b/c his vocals are crisp and clear.

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!

    I've got time... I'm going to wait to see if Outlaw Man can be saved. If not, I have a protest vote planned.

    But, yes... it's going to be really tough from here on out.

    I agree with you Delilah about the production. The sound they got is just too out there for me. Or at least within the Eagles catalogue. I think if they had gone in a different direction but kept the essence of the song, I would like it more

    In a tied round, the next song performance to be eliminated in Desperado Survivor is Out of Control. “Out of Control”, the tribe has spoken, and you got no glory even though you gambled on your story. But, we’re bettin’ our money on an ace in the whole that you got plenty of guts. We’re not looking for trouble, so, come on, saddle up, boy, you need to ride off the island.

    The best song on the album is gone.

    Well as some say this gets harder, this is where it gets easier for me. I don't really like the remaining songs all that much.
