Eagles - Hotel California Grammy Winner! RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum! Click here to see this CD at Amazon.com!

By John Milward

It's no accident that The Eagles Greatest Hits might one day pass Michael Jackson's Thriller as the best-selling album of all time-- the Eagles made great singles. By contrast, their albums could be spotty and strained by self-conscious artistry. Hotel California was arguably the band's best single album--it was certainly the Eagles' biggest original disc-- and it also underscored the band's need to make a big statement. The title tune reflected the album's theme of paradise lost in California, painting this picture with a musical arrangement that punctuated strumming guitars with dramatic drums, and perhaps the band's most famous lyric: "You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave." "New Kid in Town" was an equally fine albeit much more traditional Eagles ballad. "Life in the Fast Lane" aspired to hard rock but largely gunned its engine without taking off. The rest is okay, but nothing more than secondary Eagles songs that happened to be nestled into the album that came to define the Super70s supergroup.

"Aahh it takes me back. I remember holidaying for a week in the west of Scotland, sleeping in the back of a Ford Escort van, with Hotel Calafornia continually being played on my little portable tape player. I still like this album just as much today as then."

--Chucky
