This review is from: Long Road Out Of Eden (Audio CD)
I've been listening to The Eagles since the 70's. Always loved their stuff. This album is no exception. Great original songs, perfect harmonies, great musicianship. If this makes it MOR, then I'm glad to be there and after I saw them live in Western Canada recently, they only re-affirmed their reputation as a great live act and recording band. Keep it going boys, we luv ya..

2.0 out of 5 stars what a letdown, March 21 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Being a huge fan of Tolkien and loving the LOTR movies, I feel extremely dissapointed with this lacklustre effort.
The movie is way too long, the dwarves unpleasant and largely pointless and the childish stabs at humour totally unfunny.
Bilbo comes across as a kind of clownish figure, Gandalf doesn't really know what to do or say and the other characters just bumble around.
The excitement created in LOTR is gone, the special effects are as good as ever, but without a good story line it just plods along from one silly scene to the next. What were you thinking Peter Jackson?. Tolkien I'm sure would be turning in his grave.
