This is without a doubt the biggest album of the Eagles career; and if anybody has actually and does continue too listen to the whole album it is not difficult to hear why!! Stand out tracks are there for sure; the title track - well, that really goes without saying, just listen to it and you'll understand. Then we have "Life In The Fast Lane" , "Wasted Time" & "New Kid In Town". They were the hit singles; so most everybody knows them. That is almost half the album too - we only have nine tracks in total and one of them is an instrumental reprise of little more than a minute in length!
It is without further doubt the memorable & classic album it has come to be and truly deserves to be remembered and appreciated as.
You have great melodies accompanied by the guys amazing harmonies. You get to hear lead by more than one of the guys too; though admittedly the main front man here is of course Don Henley; - but you also get the now late Glen Frey on "New Kid In Town", Joe Walsh does "Pretty Maids All In A Row", he does this rather good live too - check out "Hell Freezes Over" DVD. The we have "Try And Love Again" by Randy Meisner. For those who don't know Meisner was with the Eagles 1971-77. All I can really finish by saying is; if you want to hear, certainly one of the best albums ever recorded then here it is!!! So, what are you waiting for; an invitation!?!
