Overplayed and overrated, but still home to some great songs. Going against the grain, my faves are the deep cuts Victim of Love and Wasted Years along with New Kid in Town.

Solid soft/country rock. A tad overrated, but Hotel California, Life in the Fast Lane and New Kid in Town are standouts.

Underrated on this site. Hotel California is one of the greatest songs of all time, and the other tracks are very somber.

This is a great album, so much better than its detractors give it credit for. Call it dad Rock AOR or whatever you want i think it is a masterpiece and deservedly considered a classic by many. THough music geeks love to hate it.

Having skipped past Eagles albums for years (decades!) in record stores, not realising what an excellent band they were, I have finally bought my first Eagles lp (yes, vinyl) 42 years after it was first released and I absolutely love it. Apart from the very well known Hotel California, there are some classic tracks on this album. I particularly like the opening track on side two, must be the synths!

Hotel California is a fantastic song. The album is good, and the second best Eagles album. Unless of course you lean more towards their country sound. The Long Run is easily the best Eagles record.

One of my favorite albums ever. I was surprised to see this album ranked at 202. It definitely deserves to be much higher than that. Side 1 has the hits and Side 2 has the deep cuts, but everything on this album is a gem.

A good album. I think it suffers from having too many ballad like tracks, but there is a lot to like on this album. New Kid In Town is probably my favorite.
