The Eagles have never been a cool band - too smooth, too derivative, too commercial. So I was a bit resistant to this live dvd at first. The bad suits and council-haircuts didn't help - only bassist Tim Schmit looks like a proper rock star. (These things matter.) But there's no denying that these guys have written a lot of songs of real quality, while in the band and after the split - a mix of both features here. It's all impeccably performed, both by the four original Eagles and the superb backups. 'Lyin' Eyes' is as utterly seductive as ever, and they can rock out, too - their take on Don Henley's 'The Boys Of Summer' is stunning. Long set, excellent vibe from the Aussie crowd, flawlessly recorded and shot. Not every band has to be cool - turning in effortless, world-class entertainment is pretty ace too.
