Eagles music? It's the classics, man

Voters in The Star's weekly poll have spoken. If you're gonna listen to the Eagles, you wanna hear the classics.

Last week, our poll asked a simple question: Do music fans want to listen to the Eagles new CD or their old stuff? The results:

7 votes - the classics.
3 votes - aaahhgg! Eagles music is fingernails on a blackboard
1 vote - the new CD.

Bob Davis updates: As the lefty blog ThinkProgess notes, not everyone is happy about the Eagles latest. ThinkProgress writes about a conservative Web site's review of the album:
In a 1731-word diatribe, Newsbusters’ Warner Todd Huston lays into the new album from The Eagles, which is "just one long, sustained attack on the integrity of the United States."

Some Eagles critics probably feel the same way about their entire discography.
