  • Miller forsook his love of the blues for this and its sister project Book Of Dreams. In turning to mainstream pop/rock he became a huge star and developed the knack of delivering high-quality three-minute songs that were perfect for FM radio.
  • The album is linked by Miller's fascination with electronic sounds, sandwiched between the irresistible title track, the Bonnie and Clyde tale of 'Take The Money And Run', the irritatingly simple 'Rock 'n' Me' and the subdued 'The Window', with its quirky lyric 'ask my baby what she wants to be, she says a monkey in a tree'. His baby replies 'there's nothing greater than love', true enough. After all, it was Miller who rhymed 'northern California' with 'girls are warm yeah'.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "FLY LIKE AN EAGLE...found him combining indelible riffs, sly, catchy tunes and danceable grooves into songs that still light up rock radio."

Uncut (p.90) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Today, FLY... sounds as set in stone as DARK SIDE OF THE MOON. What's surprising is that it seems every bit as artful, too."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.83) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "It's full of great AOR....'Wild Mountain Honey' is a beautiful, floaty, stoned piece of rock."

Uncut (magazine) (p.98) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The title track and 'Wild Mountain Honey' are where you'll find the most twiddly synth sounds..."
