Retro Spins: Don Henley - Building The Perfect Beast
Building the Perfect Beast
Building the Perfect Beast wasn't Don Henley's first entry into his solo career, but personally speaking, it's his best. Perhaps it's because of all the collaboration which occurred with the album which gives it the punch it packs. Or perhaps it's just lightning striking. Who knows.
Now, with that said, while I enjoyed the album for the most part, there was nothing really beyond The Boys of Summer, All She Want's To Do Is Dance, and Sunset Grill which "wowed" me. I also don't understand why Henley would pick Building the Perfect Beast as the title track, as quite frankly, it's one of the worst ones out of all eleven songs.
Don Henley has never been one of my "favorite" artists from the 80's, but I don't hate him. He's got some good hits here and there, but I'm by no means a fan.

I've always liked Henley's solo stuff but after watching that Eagles documentary I had to pick up that CD .He's got a cool voice that I totally fail at imitating when I'm in the shower :/ReplyDelete
What about Glen Frey?Delete
Hes had some solo hits as well in what I like to call the "saxaphone" era.ReplyDelete
