Rolling Stone (p.74) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Jeff Lynne's production on several tracks puts a Tom Petty-ready spin on laid-back California rock and has Walsh sounding less isolated from modern times than he thinks he is."
Billboard (p.72) - "[It shares] common ground with his superb albums from nearly 40 years ago, the ones that balance a ferocious blend of rhythm and lead electric guitar and tender balladry."
Uncut (magazine) (p.85) - "Stand-out track is the Eagles-like 'Lucky That Way' with its pedal steel, minor-key harmonies and a sardonic lyric..."

After 35 years with the Eagles, Joe Walsh's first solo album since 1992 finds him pairing up with producer extraordinaire Jeff Lynne (of Electric Light Orchestra) and Beatles drummer Ringo Starr. The title, Analog Man, pertains to Walsh's difficulties as a 64-year-old trying to catch up to the new standard of digital recording, as well as adjusting to technological advances in society, such as social networking.
