EDITORS’ NOTES

The Eagles’ fifth studio album trades on the desires and pains of greed and decadence. It also marks the debut of guitarist Joe Walsh, which raised the band’s rock ’n’ roll ante considerably. The title song’s allegorical commentary on the American dream comes wrapped in a deceptively sunny, pop-rocking context, and the riff-heavy “Life in the Fast Lane” is a nod to excess. The beautiful, piano-led “The Last Resort” tells of cultural self-destruction while the openhearted ballad “Try and Love Again” offers up a lasting (and fitting) sense of reclamation.

BEST ALBUM EVER!!!

Growing up on one of the biggest musical influences was the Eagles, and this album shows off their best work. From the duel solo shoot out between Felder and Walsh on the title track to Frey's soothing melodies on "The New Kid In Town" , there is a little of all the band's best features. In a world where music is getting worse, this album still stands out and will until the end of time.
