    But The Eagles are my absolute favourite band of all.
    And my slippers are my absolute favourite shoes of all time Sorry, that was a bit mean - I only really know the Eagles' singles, which I do like when they come on the radio. I should really try their albums. I do have "Long Road out of Eden" and "Hotel California" on CD, neither of which I've played, so I'll shut up now until I've given them a listen.

    I also have most of Steely Dan's output (on vinyl), I don't know why, because I'm not sure if I like them and only play them sporadically.
    The Eagles aren't AOR Barry, country rock with a hint of west coast vibe. Steely Dan are also west coast rock, or yacht rock as some call it. AOR is bands like Journey, though they started as more of a prog rock band.

    If the honest answer to that is either never, or a LONG time ago, then how on earth are you qualified to judge the standards of the music being produced now, compared with that from the 'golden oldies' you so cherish and rave about, through rose-tinted specs...??

    Music genres are a bit subjective at times but the Eagles fall into the country west coast vibe and not the AOR one. AOR is heavier, with lots of keyboards, harmonies and catchy tunes, ballads being a big part. Journey are a classic example of AOR. Now what Barry points at is different, album orientated rock, which the Eagles could fall under, but AOR as known these days and since the 80s means something else within rock/metal music circles.

    There are though sub genres within AOR, such as pomp rock, techno rock, and some west coast bands, but not all. Like all things open to debate.

    Good for you, dude, and knowing you I'd expect nothing less! My comments were aimed at the Dan/Eagles/Mac fans who rarely if ever listen to any new music or go to gigs, and simply wallow in the 'joys' of their [rather limiting] CD or vinyl collection

    You often meet them at hi-fi shows, either as demonstrators or punters - in fact music sellers, such as Diverse Vinyl, who sell LPs and CDs at such events, deliberately tailor their stock to satisfy the demands of said, stuck-in-a-rut dinosaurs, and buyers solely of stuff that's well-produced and 'sounds good' - I know because I've spoken to Paul, the owner, and we often have a giggle about it!

    Yes - they're the sort who buy records to show off their gear, rather than having good gear to listen their records at their best. "Cart before the horse"?
