Eagles, the best-selling American music group ever according to Wikipedia, is back with a new album, Long Road Out of Eden,  that according to the New York Times as quoted by Taipei Times, has some Armenian flavor.

Not until 12 songs into the album do the Eagles unveil something contemporary: the 10-minute title song. It’s their take on the war in Iraq, declaring, “the road to empire is a bloody, stupid waste.”

The music is customized with what sounds like a duduk, an Armenian flute, and a military snare drum, but it’s still the kind of stolid, mid tempo song the Eagles have long relied on, with a guitar solo that virtually reruns Hotel California, stopping unfortunately short of the twin guitars.
