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.

I've always liked this album probably always will. As a few people have already stated Side 1 ( Hotel California, New Kid, Fast Lane & Wasted Time)) is superior to 2. but by no means is Side 2 inferior it contains some great tracks - Last Resort, Pretty Maids & the beautiful Try and Love Again. It's an album people love to hate I don't know why that is because it is a really good album that I'm sure some other bands would be proud to call theirs.
