Great Fourth Album By The Eagles
ONE OF THESE NIGHTS, the fourth album by the Eagles, is great. The guitar soloing takes a few cues from the Allman Brothers Band's BROTHERS AND SISTERS, and there's also an experimentation with R&B rhythms on the title track. The best song here is the Don-Felder-written-and-sung "Visions", which blends R&B rhythms with country-blues-rock guitar picking. Other great moments include Randy Meisner's "Too Many Hands", which is an indictment of sexism; "Take It To The Limit", a ballad about trying to break free of a worn-out relationship; and "Lyin' Eyes", which is about a woman who seems to have married a rich man just for the money, rather than for love. Overall, ONE OF THESE NIGHTS is the Eagles' best album up to that point, with the rock style and sound highly pronounced, and a dry run for HOTEL CALIFORNIA.Was this review helpful?

Contains some of their biggest hits
While it's true that this album contains some of their biggest hits, to me it feels less like an album than their previous two, perhaps it's just because this one has more sorrow than joy in its themes. But it is certainly an album worth having. No greatest hits package can substitute for the Eagles catalog of albums through the '70s.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
