I keep hearing from posters on many albums (not just this one) that seem to think that because an album is popular (especially on classic rock radio stations) that it is "overplayed" and therefore we should subtract points from the album. If this is truly the case, then "Who's Next", "Led Zeppelin IV" and "Boston" should be ranked at the bottom of every listing.

Rubbish, I say!

A guy by nickname "leniad" says the Eagles are an overrated band, a guy who scores 100 for a "Strokes" album and says "Thriller" is as good as a Led Zeppelin or Beatles album, or even even superior, should be forbidden to comment.

The title track "Hotel California" (one of the best songs ever written) also has some of the finest solos and fills ever recorded on electric guitar, the recording quality of the album is superb, and even listening to the first cd mastering done (I do not have a version in vinyl or sacd), the instruments and voices are very defined, besides the title track there are sublime ballads like "New Kids in Town" and "Try and Love Again" (with sweet guitar tones Gretsh), sticky riffs of "Life in the Fast Lane" and "Victim of Love" leave no forget that also is a rock album, the vocals of "Wasted Time" and the beautiful string arrangement on "Wasted Time (Reprise)" are the basis for the perfect melody, "The Last Resort" full of variation and dynamics closes the album.

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.
