Greatest Hits, Vol. 2

( 5 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
With the Eagles having officially disbanded in May 1982, leaving behind eight Top 40 hits that followed the release of the spectacularly successful Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975, Asylum Records naturally compiled a second hits collection for fall 1982 release. Seven of those hits were included (the exception being the seasonal "Please Come Home for Christmas"), along with three LP tracks, one each from One of These Nights, Hotel California, and The Long Run. Disdained by longtime fans and by the Eagles themselves, the collection was perfect for listeners who knew the band through number one radio hits like "New Kid in Town," "Hotel California," and "Heartache ...

It also spared them having to buy mediocre albums like The Long Run and Eagles Live just to have copies of the best-known songs from those releases. No wonder, then, that over the years, Eagles Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 achieved multi-platinum status.

    excellent tunes for easy listening on your cd player

    But copy protected so it may not work on your computer. Bummer since I listen to tunes at work on my computer. I buy not rip music so the CD rates 5 stars for the music but loses one for the inconvenience of me having to bring in a CD player to listen to it; can't listen to it on my computer.

    Almost as good as Volume 1

    While Greatest Hits 1971-75 is perfect in every way, this secondary collection is just as enjoyable if not quite as substantial. There are several necessary tracks for classic rock fans: ''Hotel California'', ''New Kid in Town'', ''Heartache Tonight'', ''Life in the Fast Lane'', and the rest are quite listenable as well. There are the ballads (''The Sad Café''), the rockers (''The Long Run'') and the in-betweens (''Seven Bridges Road''). There are only a handful of countryish tracks here, but the rock songs are all top-notch. This album is certainly a shock when played back-to-back with '71-75, but it's popularity is unfairly overshadowed by the former. This is an excellent album, and is a perfect for casual fans (the band's later studio albums were somewhat uneven).
