One of their better albums especially side 2 (Tracks 6-11)they merge into one another and it gives an Americana feeling to the album. In saying that Tequila Sunrise And Desperado are great cuts along with Doolin' Dalton from Side 1.

The Eagles second album is a concept album about the Doolin-Dalton gang. Who cares? Anyway, some fine songs here, especially the title track and, tequila sunrise. The Eagles never made a stunning grade A album, they were always a better singles band, still, this is one of their better efforts.

My favorite Eagles album. I think the concept works well here, contrary to some others. It's not exactly How the West Was Won, but not bad for a rock band's old west concept album. Outlaw Man is a great song, and Tequila Sunrise, Desperado, Out of Control and Saturday Night are no slouches, either.

A re-evaluation of this underrated album is long overdue. Bitter Creek/Doolin' Dalton/Desperado are among the greatest rock songs ever written and performed.

I want to like this more than Hotel California. The Eagles are true to their roots, and don't seem like douchebags this early in their career. It's a great country-rock album, but not on par with the hit-parade that is Hotel California.
