There are some great tracks on this CD. It's a must-have if you're a big Eagles fan, obviously. If you're not so much, one of the best-of albums is probably a better bet; to get the classic Hotel California etc.
But if this one is going cheap, or if you liked some other stuff by them, this will certainly not dissappoint. Played non stop in my CD player for a few months;
a great buy

I have been an Eagles fan for 35 years, and have all their albums, they like other groups can and sometime do put out some rubbish but for the most I can truthfully say I have not heard any from the Eagles, the best track for me is 'Journey of the Sorcerer', but when this album came out 'One of these Nights' was top. In 1976 while I was in the States I was lucky enough to go and see the Eagles live where they performed must of the album on stage,. This is a great album and its music will be played long after the Eagles have gone, the pity is there will never be another group like the Eagles and their music,

The Eagles are similar to Dire Straits in that one album (Hotel California / Brothers in Arms)tends to overshadow the rest of their output. In both cases the albums released prior to these landmark albums are an infinitely more interesting listening experience. Should you be considering purchasing this album as a result of liking Hotel California and want to delve further into Eagles then you will not be dissapointed. The album is full of superb songs that cover the full range of rockers, ballads and instrumentals without ever sounding pompous and overblown.

I have got this on vinyl but hadn't heard a lot of the lesser known tracks for many years so decided to buy on CD. Several tracks are well known but this is a must for anyone who likes the Eagles.

4/5. "One of These Nights" has been a ground-breaking album for the Eagles - a step from laid-back country-dominated sound into a much darker territory of mysticism, straightforward social and political commentary and metaphors. Unlike previous releases, this album does not have any bluegrass and country-influenced songs like "Midnight Flyer" from "On The Border" or "Earlybird" from the first self-titled album. The sound is much stronger and darker with muscular guitar fills added by Don Felder. This shift in musical direction was the reason for growing tensions within the band which forced disillusioned Bernie Leadon to leave the band after the One Of These Nights tour. However, although by the time the album had been released the band was mostly dominated by Don Henley and Glenn Frey, the other members are more than audible on this record and greatly contribute to five out of nine tracks. Another new element in the Eagles' music is about extended song lengths with "Journey of the Sorcerer" and "Lyin' Eyes" running for over six minutes.
The greatest highlights on the album is the title track - one of the finest tunes ever composed by the Eagles, with a catchy opening bass line, fantastic R&B rhythm and falsetto singing by Don Henley with Randy Meisner hitting highest possible notes in the background. Another gem is the second single "Lyin' Eyes" - a song in the style of the "Peaceful Easy Feeling" with the typical Eagles sound and folk-rock shuffles. Don Henley is at his best with metaphors on this album - the appealing ballad "Hollywood Waltz" likens Los Angeles to an aging, promiscuous woman who "looks another year older from too many lovers who used her and ran", while "After The Thrill Is Gone" shows fear of disillusionment and disappointment with life as years go by - "what can you do when your dreams come true, but it's not quite like you'd planned?"
Yes, despite its many strengths, "One Of These Nights" is not a perfect album. It pretty much seems that the pressure of standing up to the chart-topping success of previous albums drove the band into a sort of the writing block. Otherwise there would not have been room on the album for the "Visions" - the only Eagles song sung by Don Felder, over-extended cosmic instrumental "Journey of the Sourcerer" by Bernie Leadon and poorly sung closing track "I Wish You Peace", co-written by Bernie Leadon and Patti Davis, the daughter of future president Ronald Reagan. Ironically, "I Wish You Peace", which Don Henley later described as "smarmy cocktail music" and disparaged as Eagles release also turned out to be Leadon's goodbye to the band. -Sain Alizada

The 70's was a decade of excellent music, where creativity was at it's peak and for alot of groups good songwriting was at the forefront.
The quality of this group astounds me. The reason I went for this album is because the title track is catchy, but meaningful. My other favourites are Hollywood Waltz (superb lyrics, that really sums up some people), Lyin' Eyes (A superb classic), Visions (great rock song) and After the Thrill is Gone (a beautiful, apt song that instantly struck a chord with me). The whole group write, sing and play such fantastic songs and they all possess decent singing voices.
Unlike some groups the Eagles sing with feeling and you can tell they mean what they sing. It's no wonder Lyin' Eyes won an award "The cheatin' side of town" is such a great lyric.
I highly recommend this to people who like prog rock and music with feeling.

A good Eagles album but not their best though. The album has a new addition in the form of Don Felder who adds rock to the mix and a times you can now see the direction they were taking in moving towards a more commercial rock sound.

The album is a mixed bag though and I think creatively the band were in no mans land here with Bernie Leadon being pushed out a bit in favour of syrupy ballads and commercial rock songs.

It was recorded in 1975 though which is considered by some to be the worst year in music history so far, so with that in mind it's not so bad.
