"Remember when the days were long and rolled beneath a deep blue sky" ... remember Paradise Lost and the Last Resort? At the end of the 1980s, his awareness of society and what's wrong with it more acute than ever, on his third solo album Don Henley took up the theme of the closing song of the Eagles' classic "Hotel California" even more forcefully than on his two prior releases. Now, however, it was no longer just "somebody" who "laid the mountains low while the town got high." Now the enemy had a face; he was "the tired old man that we elected king;" that cowboy whose name was Jingo, and who "heard that there was trouble, so in a blaze of glory he rode out of the west - nobody was ever certain what it was that he was sayin' but they loved it when he told them they were better than the rest." ("Little Tin God.")
By the time he published "The End of the Innocence," Don Henley's name was as firmly established as that of a successful solo artist as it had previously come to be known as one of the driving forces behind the Eagles' almost decade-long success. Commercially his most successful album and critically his most acclaimed, his third solo release garnered a Grammy for Best Male Rock Vocalist (for the title track) and produced several more hit singles besides "The End of the Innocence:" "The Heart of the Matter," "New York Minute," "How Bad Do You Want It?" and "Last Worthless Evening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb - not surpassed until "Inside Job" 13 Sep 2006
By Friendlycard VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The progression which transformed the Eagles between their country-ish debut album and the final stunning "The Long Run" continued after the band split, so that, separately, the former band members have produced a body of work which far surpasses that of the Eagles as a band.

"The End of the Innocence" was yet another step forward for Don Henley, arguably the most talented former Eagle. Picking highlight tracks would be almost invidious, though "The Heart of the Matter" (and the title track) deserve special mentions even in this exalted company. Rocky, gritty, superbly produced, and with a lot to say, this is a "must-own". Yet Don Henley could - and, in 2000, DID - produce something even better.....

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Just Shy Of A Classic' 28 Mar 2013
By Antony May TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I think the reason 'The End Of The Innocence' has a tendency to seem a little disappointing to some is down to the fact that, while the quality of all the songs here is very high, songs like the title track, 'New York Minute', The Last Worthless Evening' and 'The Heart Of The Matter' are exceptional songs and thus stand out more than they would on an average album.

Henley's voice has always had the ability to move the soul and lyrically poignant and powerful songs like the sad and reflective 'New York Minute' and touching title track (which sounds as if it was written following the death of a parent) are not easy listening but are never the less essential. 'The Last Worthless Evening' meanwhile is not just a great radio 'driving song' but a great love song and one which provides hope for all lonely people everywhere as does the similarly personal sounding 'The Heart Of The Matter'.

There is quite a lot of variety musically wise here though. 'Shangri - La' has a kind of sassiness about it and an anthemic refrain chorus which may surprise/put off some and 'I Will Not Go Quietly' features a good bit of guitar work alongside some stark and powerful drumming that may not fit in with every fans idea of what a Don Henley record should sound like. For my part, I say hats of to the man for not simply regurgitating the brand he knows will be lapped up by fans.

This album may take a few spins to fully appreciate but I reckon its well worth taking the time and effort to get into it.

5.0 out of 5 stars henleys masterpeice 26 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
That lovely voice the eagles frontman never sounded better than this.
Best track for me is new york minute although made in 1989 this song could have an ode to all the people who sadly lost there lives after 9/11
Another standout track is the last worhless evening a song about trying to find love again after a breakup and you are a certain age.
the production and the musicianship on this album are flawless
this music will live forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eagle Eye 13 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
I have been collecting DTS versions of music for a little while and purchased this item being a big fan of the Eagles. The regular CD has some great music on it anyway but the DTS version just takes the music to another level. Keeping in touch with his roots Don Henley is served up as a full blown 5 course meal. Great production that is very warm and considerate to the avid listener. I could try and pick the stand out tracks but quite frankly they are all good, so for that reason the songs listed "New York minute", "Shangri-La" "I will not go quietly" and of course "The End of Innocence" simply come alive. Don Henley, do not be a stranger and if you are a producer with DTS experience, dig deep into the music banks that have been graciously waiting for the next visit and make sure the latest repackage is not just adding bonus tracks, go the whole hog and DTS.
