They can check out any time they like but it seems Henley, Frey, Schmit and Walsh can never leave the Eagles. Their first full-length (a double to boot) in 28 years is everything you would expect from a new Eagles album: beautifully produced and played, at times brilliant but often bloated. There are clunking lyrics from the "guilty of loving you" school; there are 10-minute epics, there are perfunctory driving tunes and there are 9/11 tributes. But there are also incredible harmonies and the odd peaceful, easy-going number that would not feel out of place on that greatest hits. You just can't kill the beast, indeed.
