Very underrated album, and in my opinion, second best by the Eagles after Hotel California. From the funky On the Border, to the bouncy Midnight Flyer, to the slide guitar-infused Good Day to Hell, to the sweet tribute My Man, everything on this album just works. Any fan of the Eagles or Eagles-like sound needs to listen to this one.

This to me should be right up there with Hotel California & Desperado as one of their best albums Already Gone, My Man a cover of Ol' 55 & Is It True are great tracks and Best Of My Love finishes of a really good collection of songs the only weakness the throw away Midnight Flyer.

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.

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.
