All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
This collection, like the others in the Rockabye Baby! series, proves that any melody can be morphed into a lullaby if one tosses in enough glockenspiels, vibraphones, Mellotrons and other sundry bells and whistles (literally), and on that score, this lullabization of the Eagles certainly succeeds.
