Barnes & Noble - Don Bergenty
It's been more than ten years since Don Henley released his last album, THE END OF THE INNOCENCE. In the intervening decade, he's recorded and toured with his old band the Eagles; he's founded the Walden Woods Project, an ecological conservation in memory of Thoreau; and he's gotten married and had two children. A seasoned vet, Henley isn't content to repeat the same themes and sounds, and the songs on INSIDE JOB reflect his most recent life experiences by hewing to two major themes: accountability for one's actions, and domestic bliss. "Goodbye to a River" is a hymn-like ballad that chastises the captains of industry for polluting our rivers. "Damn It Rose" describes a...

Barnes & Noble - Don Bergenty
It's been more than ten years since Don Henley released his last album, THE END OF THE INNOCENCE. In the intervening decade, he's recorded and toured with his old band the Eagles; he's founded the Walden Woods Project, an ecological conservation in memory of Thoreau; and he's gotten married and had two children. A seasoned vet, Henley isn't content to repeat the same themes and sounds, and the songs on INSIDE JOB reflect his most recent life experiences by hewing to two major themes: accountability for one's actions, and domestic bliss. "Goodbye to a River" is a hymn-like ballad that chastises the captains of industry for polluting our rivers. "Damn It Rose" describes a mother's suicide and the child left behind. But Henley isn't out to bring us down; rather, he implores us to face our problems rather than run away from them. Like many tracks here, "Damn It Rose" boasts a gripping mix of Texas cool and California hipness: Lead guitars with a Southern tone mingle with acoustic strumming and organ, as Henley's raspy vocals lead the way. He keeps that sound current by drawing on Jimmie Vaughan and his buddies from Tom Petty's Heartbreakers -- producer Stan Lynch, guitarist Mike Campbell, and keyboardist Benmont Tench. Henley may be preaching about activism and singing love songs to his family, but he's crafted one of the most meticulously produced, emotionally rich albums of his career.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Don Henley essentially sat out his '90s recording contract, waiting until he could sign to another label that would allow him greater artistic freedom and royalties. He finally signed to Warner and released his fourth solo album, Inside Job, in the spring of 2000. Considering his long absence from recording, it shouldn't come as a total surprise that the album sounds as if it could have been cut in 1990 or even 1986 check out the obnoxious synth solo on the opening track. That is not entirely a bad thing, however. It would have been rather embarrassing if Henley was trying to run with the young boys, and he sounds very comfortable settling into a role that is something less than an old master and something more than a crotchety old-timer. It falls somewhere between that, since his simmering anger -- always apparent but raised to the surface on his solo records -- still can be heard, which makes him seem a little cranky on occasion, when he gets carried away with his temper. For the most part, though, he sounds relaxed, comfortable, and reflective on Inside Job, more so than he ever has. The heart of the record is in the slower numbers, where he honestly lays out his feelings about his new love and marriage. Whenever he sticks to personal relationships, and thereby gentler music, Inside Job stays winning. It's brought down when he steps up to the podium to rail against the modern world, but this isn't quite enough to sink the record. Inside Job lacks the melodic craftsmanship that made Building the Perfect Beast a blockbuster, and it isn't as focused as The End of the Innocence, but it is a solid comeback record from an artist who spent a little too long out of the spotlight.

    Good job

    Don Henley's son ''For My Wedding'' is the best song ever. It is the sweetest that I have ever heard from him.

    Rock and Roll for Grownups

    Never a big Henley fan, I was attracted to the album because ''This Love'' on the radio grabbed me. Listening to the album at my favorite music outlet, I was simply blown away. Strong rock beat, great guitar work, and the wisdom of a thinking and feeling man who moved past the rocker tendency toward permanent adolescence. From sweet cuts to tough, it's intelligent, wise, and affecting. I listen to it over and over while working or playing on the computer. Worth buying and then some.

    The Best of Henley just gets better

    5 stars just doesn't begin to describe this CD. Listening to the songs in this CD is like looking into the soul of the man. Superior listening all around, You'll love it, I certainly do.

    In a word: Outstanding

    If you're like me and appreciate great lyrics you'll love this album. The one constant about Don Henley is he writes what he feels, and agree or disagree he gets his message across with the passion he feels for it. This is an outstanding album. A fabulous mix of slow ballads and up-tempo rockers. A mix of usual Henley cynicism with newfound appreciation for his new wife and childre. His voice can be rough and rock-like, or as smooth as silk on a ballad. Eleven years in the making 'Inside Job' was worth the wait. Here you'll find a somwhat softer, less preachy Don Henley, who throws in wonderful lyrics like: 'I hate to tell you this, but I'm very, very happy/ Now I know thats not what you'd expect from me at all' on Everything is Different Now (A tribute to how his marriage has changed his life), to his more biting sarcasm: 'Will they pile into the space ship/ find Orlando's rat and hug it?/ Go screaming across the universe/ just to buy McNuggets' from They're not here, They're not coming. Its all about variety on this album. If you like the softer, heart-felt ballads you'll like: 'Taking You Home', 'For My Wedding', 'Annabelle', and 'Damnit Rose'. If you like Henley's more foot tapping stuff you'll appreciate 'They're Not Here, They're Not Coming', 'Nobody Else In The World But You', and 'Miss Ghost'. I'm not a fan of 'You Can't Get The Genie Back in The Bottle' nor 'Goodbye to a River'. However 2 bad songs on an Album of 13 isn't bad!! Highly recommended.

    Don Does It Again

    This is a great album. Not only does Mr. Henley continue with his well known cynicism, he also lets the listener in on his softer side as never before. The songs 'Workin' It' and 'Inside Job' ring oh-so-true, while 'Goodbye To A River' will make the listener stop and consider what is happening in the world today.
