AllMusic/William Ruhlmann said: Eagles was a band that could be bombastic,
but also one that made music worthy of the later tag of “classic rock,” music appropriate
for the arenas and stadiums the band was playing. Result was the Eagles’ biggest-selling
regular album release, and one of the most successful rock albums ever.”
Score: 5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave!
Yep, that’s what happens with a pure gold classic. Their best, without a shadow of
a doubt.
