by Joe Walsh
Released: Jun 2012
Label: Fantasy Records
The irony underpinning the title track, a middle finger to the computer age, is how the tune sounds as if it was recorded in a digital studio, the kind that just about every major-label artist nowadays uses. But hey, Walsh has never let contradiction stand between him and a rock anthem for the common man; after all, an ordinary average guy he clearly is not. Further clouding his cognitive dissonance is the fact that Analog Man feels not like a throwback to the solid state '70s but to the new wave '80s. It exudes that crisp production that bands like ZZ Top and Loverboy used to sport.
