Possibly my favourite Eagles album. On the border, features some excellent tracks. Already gone, is a great opener, the Gram Parsons tribute, my man, is utterly beautiful, and there's a nice cover of Tom Waits' ol'55. James Dean, is probably the weakest song, a generic rocker, but the rest is fine. Enjoyable record.

This is believe their weakest record. A few good tracks but generally uninspired.

Already Gone is the best song ever made with cheesy lyrics. Best of My Love, Ol' 55, and the title track are all classics as well.

The easiest Eagles album to ignore. Nothing special.

Eagles never made a great album but this one still belongs on the bottom half of their catalog. They had some good songs but were always a tad dull and On the Border may be the highpoint of that dullness. The cover of Ol' 55 is incredibly pale compared to the original. Listenable, but definitely skippable.
