Those who call Hotel California an example of Southern California decadence are getting it wrong. It's about decadence, a much different thing. For all the excesses detailed by the band's biographers, it's a fact that leaders Don Henley and Glenn Frey ran a tight ship, crafting songs, albums, and the band's stage show for maximum sonic and emotional impact. In 1976, following four increasingly sophisticated and successful albums of unassailable country rock, Henley and Frey crafted Hotel California, the album of their career. They put to good use both the band's plangent lead guitarist, Don Felder, and rock vet Joe Walsh to give the Eagles a new, harder-rocking authority ("Life in the Fast Lane"), without giving up a certain chamber-rock classicism ("Wasted Time"). And then there's the celebrated title song, the hit "New Kid in Town," and Henley and Frey's ambitious summation, "The Last Resort."

The Eagles leave the Old West behind and dive into themes of city life in the New West, creating one of the greatest albums in rock history. A must have album.

This CD will take you to another world. When you pop it in, get ready to just sit back and ride the waves of sensation which transport you to a place only you and the words exist. If you want to just escape for an hour, this is the CD to purchase. I recommend it to all daydreamers and really music lovers.
