I thought saying the Eagles suck was a joke because of the Big Lebowski. I stand corrected. 90% of these songs sound like they were written and performed by Dirk Diggler. 1.5 because I still half like take it easy.

I’ve never been a big fan of the Eagles, but this surprised me and it’s starting to occur to me by participating in this 1001 albums exercise that I’m quite partial to country and country influenced music. This is a solid and polished debut album with some great rockers and nice nods to Crosby, Stills and Nash as well as bands like the Little River Band who liberally borrowed the Eagles’ sound for their own work.

Take It Easy, Witchy Woman is hard to beat in terms of a 1-2 punch. I mean the Eagles have a way of creating a laid back groove with ease. Yea these harmonies are where its at. Early Bird is real weird but i like the banjo.

This album is warm and a little rustic with some pure pop moments that you really can't beat. The vocal harmonies are sublime, as you expect them to be coming from the Eagles. No, this isn't the Eagles' best album, by a long shot. It's an excellent first album, though, and shows plenty of sparks of the sound the band would continue to develop over the decade. It's also nice to hear Randy Meisner and Bernie Leadon's contributions prominently featured. It's like the Eagles you remember, but kind of a different band as well, with more of a country sound. There are three top tier classic songs on this album that pretty much everyone knows who has heard of the Eagles "(Take it Easy," "Witchy Woman," and "Peaceful Easy Feeling"). They're all still crisp and fresh as the day they were made and they pretty much lift the whole album to the next level. There are a couple of other interesting little gems on here like "Train Leaves Here This Morning" and "Take the Devil," but most of the other songs just pale in comparison to those three big singles. This is obviously a band still getting its bearings and trying to figure out what they want to be. It's a solid listen though. Fave Songs: Take It Easy, Peaceful Easy Feeling, Witchy Woman, Train Leaves Here This Morning, Take the Devil

This is a great band, but this is not a great album. Honestly, this was a time when albums launched "hit records." That song was "Take It Easy" on this album. There are 2 other notable songs -- "Peaceful Easy Feeling" and "Witchy Woman." Why is the best Eagles Album their "Best" or "Greatest Hits?" Well, because their albums are just ok.

Il s'agit là d'un album plus que correct de la part des pionniers de l'hôtellerie rock. Sans surprise, l'accueil des clients est parfaitement maîtrisé, les locaux très bien entretenus, le linge est lavé, rangé, etc... Seul petit hic, les prises électriques sont assez mal réparties dans les chambres. Globalement satisfaisant : 3/5.

I cannot abide The Eagles for some reason and I'm not sure if I can fully articulate it but here goes. It's weird cause I generally like the solo material of the individual members, but when they work together they all seem to hold each other in check in such a way that the music just sounds like a compromise. Rather than push each other to new heights they all seem to collectively agree to play it safe instead. Their massive success has often baffled me. But I guess it makes sense that in the country where Subway is the largest fast food chain and Bud Light is the most popular beer, that people would actually prefer the absolutely mediocre sounds of The Eagles.

Before I even start playing this, I need to state that the only Eagles songs I have liked are Hotel California, and their Tom Waits cover (though I still prefer the original). I will try to be open minded though! Immediately it contains the line 'Come on baby/Don't say maybe.' which is up there with rhyming moon and June, or orange and orange. It's then followed by an atmospheric stomper called Witchy Woman, completely undermining any atmosphere the music brings up - reminds me of that Kanye song where he just says 'Scoopity Poop' but at least he was trying to be annoying. By Chug All Night I'm starting to wonder if this is deliberately a joke? Either way it's terrible. Most of Us Are Sad is a marked improvement. It sounds like Neil Young phoning it in. Still, straight back to disappointment with Nightingale afterwards. Wanted to give up, but like before, a slightly better song, Train Leaves This Morning keeps me from giving up. Is it good though? Or just good in contrast to the effluent I have already crawled through? Peaceful Easy Feeling is nice enough. An album of more like this would be a 2 or 3 star album. As it stands though it's not enough though. I came in indifferent to The Eagles. This experience has made me dislike them in 40 minutes. Definitely not one of the 1001 Greatest Albums of All Time, in the same way Mrs Brown's Boys is not one of the 1001 Greatest Comedies of All Time, despite its popularity. Indeed, it's popularity doesn't suggest quality, rather that it makes sense that there are enough people to keep Trump, Al Qaeda and Simon Cowell in powerful positions.

01/27 - Yesterday I worked on a few coordination items as well as set up another print for the manufacturing building. I spent the morning focusing on sizing the Hilti sheet metal product for the northeast penetration at the penthouse. During this time I listened through the album. Later in the day I was pulling details into the Train B model and running the new print. During this time I listened to more interesting songs such as Witchy Women, Tryin, and Take It Easy. Super easy album to listen to and kept me motivated through the day.

Avevo sentito questo album forse un paio di volte quando avevo 15 anni ma non l'avevo apprezzato particolarmente. Devo dire che ero un po' prevenuto anche se gli Eagles mi stanno simpatici perché fanno questo country rock un po' psichedelico e più orientato alla forma canzone. In realtà mi ha divertito molto, alcuni pezzi li ho trovati anche abbastanza moderni (Witchy Woman) e in generale ogni pezzo c'ha il suo carattere e il suo senso all'interno dell'album. Ovviamente è un album molto legato ai suoi anni nonostante la modernità e non manca la ballatona o il pezzi più modaiolo ma sono comunque abbastanza personali. Per me è 5. No scherzo, è un 3.75 però tre mi sembra troppo poco visto che comunque ho dato 4 a Déja vù.

Eagles by The Eagles (1972) This is the album that made country rock respectable. The three hits from this record, “Take It Easy”, Witchy Woman”, and “Peaceful Easy Feeing”, were hits for a very good reason: they expressed manful first-person emotions with a fine vocal harmonic blend and top notch guitar & banjo playing that resonates in the listener’s soul. No gimmicks, no recording artifices, no glam—just pure, unadulterated songs, changing both rock music and country music for the better. With smooth melodies combining A- voices into an A+ mix, The Eagles entered the rock scene turning all ears in their direction. And after nearly fifty years, it still sounds fresh. With “Nightingale”, for instance, The Eagles take a song that could’ve been very bad, and make it very good, with creative arrangement and flashes of (well tuned!) guitar and vocal brilliance—tight, disciplined, sober. These four guys were born for studio recording. One key to their success was that all four instrumentalists were also employed in vocal performance. They were all invested in making both wings of the sound soar. The moniker “Eagles” was symbolically apt. And they have a salient talent for making slow tunes interesting (“Most of Us Are Sad”, “Train Leaves Here This Morning”, and “Take the Devil”). These well performed but less popular tracks justify pulling this album out and listening straight through every once in awhile. I’d pay good money to watch a young person listen on headphones to “Peaceful Easy Feeling” for the first time ever. I’d be watching a soul expand before my very eyes. I may try it out on my grandkids this Christmas. 4/5

A really solid debut by one of the biggest bands of the 1970's. This album reminded me a lot of how I felt listening to CCR's Green River: the band themselves are great with the specific record featuring some monster hits that are fantastic, but it does have some filler songs that keep it from being great. I definitely cut Eagles more slack in this circumstance as this was their first ever album and features more intricate instrumentals/harmonies that are very impressive for a debut record. You can tell that they were already shaping into the band they would come known to be, and while I have no doubt that they improved as the years went by, this was a great introduction to the world and indicative of the potential they had. I would throw this one on again, but I have a feeling that there will be an Eagles album in the future that I will really love. 3.5/5. NOTE: I did add Take It Easy to my Starred list after visiting this album. I always forget how much I enjoy that song, and it was fun hearing the high quality details of the banjo and guitars after only really hearing in on FM radio.

Drugie Eaglesy na liscie, tym razem z debiutanckim materialem z 1972, ktory daje nowe spojrzenie na zespol, bo znalem go bardziej jako rokowy pop z hotelu kalifornijskiego, a na eponimicznym krazku graja o wiele bardziej niszowo targetujac styl country rocka, wiec banda musiala przejsc zmiany skladowe, orginalny sklad ktory gra na tym materiale to Glenn Frey, Don Henley i Randy Meisner, ktory graja jeszcze na hotelowym krazku, nowa dla mnie postacia jest pan Bernie Leadon ktorego na gitarce zastapil Walsh, a ktory byl podobno ta sila forsujaca countrowy styl w zespole, chociaz ciezko tutaj mowic o jakims forsowaniu, bo dosc demokratycznie podzielona jest plyta kazdy z czlonkow ma swojego traka zarowno napisanego jak i zaspiewanego, ale jednak glowne motywy kraza wokol prostego zycia na szlaku niekonczacej sie wedrowki, zlych kobiet czy piekna otaczajacego swiata, 37 minut podzielone na 10 trakow, ktore urzekaja prostota brzmienia, do ktorego mam taka slabosc, nie czuc tutaj parcia na komercyjne brzmienie i nawet jesli nie ma takich fajerwerkow jak na kalifornijskim krazku, to jesli chodzi o calosc wypada ona spojniej i bardziej autentycznie, na plejke dodam openingowego take it easy pana Freya, ktory najlepiej wypada wokalnie na tym krazku, odbierajac ten tytul Henleyowi, ktory kojarzyl mi sie z najlepiej zaspiewanymi kawalkami z poprzedniego odsluchu, kolejnym kawalkiem bedzie train leaves here this morning spiewane przez Leadona, kompozycja jeszcze z czasow duetowania z Genem Clarkiem, ktorej akustycznie brzmienie jest chyba najbardziej folkowa kompozycja plyty, wiec kolejny zespol dal sie poznac z nowej strony i teraz mam zagadke co miala ona na mysli mowiac, ze jest fanka eaglesow, jesli zespol ma az tak rozne materialy wydane w przeciagu 4 lat

"Running down the road tryna loosen my load" ??? Eagles be eagling, man. This is our second from them, and just like Hotel California, it's got some classic hits. They're a band that's made easy to hate by their ubiquity, but they're also easy to love because the music goes down smooth. Two tracks on here with "easy" in the title in case it wasn't clear, and they're easily my two favorites. Rock on, birds. Favorite tracks: Take It Easy, Peaceful Easy Feeling, Witchy Woman, Nightingale. Album art: One that I never paid much attention to, as it's mostly just a sky. But closer inspection reveals what seems to be a silhouette of a cactus "skyline" in front of a desert sunset. Digging the vibe. 4/5

The eagles debut album has a lot of classics on it including the first two, Take It Easy and Witchy Woman but Peaceful Easy Feeling is also on here too. All to say, this is a really calm album. Some of the songs are a little more upbeat but feeling peaceful and easy seems like something different from the rock of the day. Great start to a hopefully great week.

The Eagles are probably the band that most people think of when they hear "dad rock" but man.. I kinda really like this album. I was expecting to loathe this since I don't particularly care for country music but I even enjoyed the song called "Earlybird" which is the most stereotypical farm music I've ever heard in my life. It's corny (like.. actual corn, yeehaw), easy to hate on, and not the most musically impressive thing ever made, but I like it.

The Eagles debut album opens with the iconic ‘Take it East’ and features other well known tracks that showcase the band’s unique laid back country rock sound infused with Laurel Canyon contemplation. Unfortunately, the album suffers because that sound is not fully developed throughout and sees the Eagles writing a lot of filler material that doesn’t really sound like them.

"I hate the fuckin' Eagles, man!" This isn't too bad though. It's that kinda easy listening rock that's so inoffensive it almost feels unfair disliking it. It'd definitely wear out its welcome after an hour, but at 35min it gets a pass. Some rockers, some plodders, no tracks either side of "alright" apart from Take it Easy and Tryin', which are good. It's hard to rate overall - it's exactly what it is, no ambition whatsoever but maybe you wouldn't want that anyway? 3.001/5.

Preface I love the Eagles a lot BUT.. Such a strong 3 track intro gets diluted into church cordial by the tepid harmony ballads that occupy the rest of the album. The banjo is only just acceptable on the end of Take It Easy but then they take the it way too far on the rest of the tracks. This would be a five star record if they maintainted the momentum of the first three, especially Witchy Woman.

I had no idea that the Eagles were so "western." Like of course Hotel California takes place in the desert, but it's a side that I wouldn't associate with them. I hadn't really put "Take It Easy" in anything but more of a pop-rock or just rock genre. But the rest of the album was so different. There is Banjo! The Eagles play THE BANJO. wtf. I never knew this. I guess the Eagles really are more than their hits.. Some tracks that really spoke to me as I sit in my bathtub at 1AM as I listened to this: 1. Train Leaves Here This Morning (soft and almost remorseful 2. Take the Devil (Badass.) 3. Early Bird (Reminds me of ZZTOP in a couple ways.)

A fine debut soft rock album from one of the genre's most famous bands. Doesn't have the highs of some of their other work but its consistent through out. Not particularly my cup of tea when it comes to rock and I think that's mostly because of how insanely laid back the album can often feel. There is a lack of any real propulsion to the rock songs and I think thats a part of the reason why I can't truly connect to The Eagles like others. Still a perfectly fine album, better suited for BBQs and laying in a pool than anything else.

Started off fast, slow songs in the middle that got a bit repetitive, finished strong. I think starting with Take it Easy, followed by songs like Nightingale and Train Leaves tells the listener that we are going on a journey through the desert, the barren. Tryin' brings us back to civilization as we re-enter the city imbued with a sense of accomplishment and motivation for what else lies ahead.

When you think of the Eagles, the sound on a majority of this encompasses ‘The Eagles’ sound; multi-voice harmonizing, multiple guitar parts, signature 70s blue jeans rock n roll. Chug All Night is fun. Tryin’ is great too. The biggest downfall is that the slower songs don’t seem to stick out as much as the more upbeat ones.

I get why this album is important in the grand scheme of things, and it did have one great tune (Witchy Woman) and two pretty good ones (Take It Easy, Peaceful Easy Feeling). Still, without more Henley vocals, and with the mish-mash of styling, it left a 3-star taste in my mouth.

Das shuffelt und slidet sich sehr angenehm durch, man möchte sich auf nen Truck setzen und aber bitte nicht über die Deutsche Autobahn fahren, sondern nen Highway entlang, natürlich. Ich mag diesen Harmoniegesang gern und die Sanftheit (gelegentlich gebrochen durch "Rocker" wie Tryin'), und die wohlige Atmosphäre die dieser durch und durch MoR ausstrahlende Klassiker erzeugt. Dazu kommt: für ein Debütalbum, bei dem sich der Sound der Band ja offensichtlich auch gerade erst im Diskurs mit dem Produzenten so richtig gefunden hatte, klingt der Sound hier schon wieder derart ausgereift. Respekt, volle 3,3 Punkte dafür!

Gibt es doch kein Hotel California können vor allem die langsamen Nummern („ Most of Us Are Sad“ & „ Train Leaves Here This Morning“) vollends überzeugen in einem sonst so soliden Country/Folk/Blues/Rock, der nicht mehr allzu stark hinterm Lagerfeuer hervor lockt.

Som ett första intryck kan albumet anses vara banal och utdaterad, bortglömd i havet av medelmåttighet. Jag kan inte förneka att albumet tyder det på vissa sätt. Bland annat genom instrumentval och karaktär i röst. Simulant har albumet tänkvärda egenskaper. Bland annat gav många låtar av väl genomtänkta ackord strukturer. Genren kan vanligtvis bli tröttsamt men omväxlingen under låtarnas gång motarbetade det förträffligt. Albumet lyckades nästan hålla mig intresserad till slutet. Trots dess förmåga blev musiken repetitiv runt om slutet.

Take it Easy - First song in and the name fits well, super chill, easy listening rock - Quite a nice song. Witchy Woman - IT'S THE INTRO!

Train Leaves Here This Morning - Another nice song but again, super slow and chill. Overall a good album, though the only song I'd probably choose to listen to again is Witchy Woman - its a bit too dull for me, maybe good for background listening.

This doesn't deserve nearly as much hate as the kids on college radio who have listened to a whopping five drone and musique concrete records give it but it also doesn't really deserve the adoration the generation before yours might have given it. It's musically competent but I think it's a bit better when it bares it teeth and goes for a Halloween or JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit kind of sound as opposed to a sitting back and drinking pineapple flavored alcohol kind of sound.

There's a lot to commend about this fine album, featuring some timeless music that's well played, well sung and tastefully produced. One thing that sticks out is how heavily influenced they were by The Beach Boys vocal harmonies. The lead guitar parts are also notable. The main complaint for me is the lyrics which are a bit pedestrian, but it's a non issue if you're happy just to tap along with the rolling grooves.

The Big Lebowski quote is funny but exaggerated: the Eagles' debut is forgettable but not horrible. The best tracks are at the end, almost tricking you into liking it. But it's paint-by-numbers, and the whistling fails to jazz things up. The band's definitely better with this instrumentation than not, but they desperately needed to drop the melodrama. Higher lows and lower highs than Hotel California; Better project but not by a lot.

Ho iniziato ad ascoltare quest'album in macchina, venerdì, dopo aver staccato da una lunga giornata di merda a lavoro ed è stata un'esperienza quasi mistico-curativa con Take It easy, mi è sembrato di stare in un film. Purtroppo poi le altre canzoni non hanno avuto lo stesso effetto: le canzoni più rock, sono tipiche anni '70, niente di sconvolgente, mentre quelle più tranquille sono tipo ballad country, che balls! Dopo Take It easy solo Earlybird mi è sembrata all'altezza delle mie aspettative. Poi basta.

No other band embodies "classic rock" more than The Eagles. Overplayed to hell, every human on the planet knows at least a few songs by The Eagles. And three of those tracks are right here. Great production, but most huge pop bands could claim that. What The Eagles have going for them is their great songwriting. If you just listen to the lyrics to even the lesser songs on this album, you'll see potential if only their sound took off the same way. Their most famous track "Hotel California" is the perfect example of what could have been to most of the songs they write. This album is supposed to be country rock, but it mostly sounds like they're trying the copy the sound of others that came before them, like the Byrds or Neil Young. I can't give them any points for innovation, except maybe the song "Earlybird." There's little else I could say for most of the tracks. For the three radio staples, I don't find them annoying despite how overplayed they are. In fact, I find them relaxing. "Witchy Woman" is the best song on the album but like the others it doesn't take off anywhere exciting. Overall, it's a disappointing effort by a band that could have been so much more than an over-commercialized product.

Wasn’t really a surprise when I looked at the Eagles wiki page and discovered the band originated from Los Angeles. The music they make is what I like to call Corporate Country, totally divorced from its original working class and black roots and we end up getting songs like Chug All Night. I don’t even wanna talk about that song, it was such a cringefest and sadly a vision of what mainstream country would become. The album doesn’t help itself by having the two best tracks first. It all goes downhill after Witchy Woman. The lyrics are pretty surface level. There’s a lot of lyrics pertaining to loving a woman but they way it’s written doesn’t come across as a genuine emotion. Rather that they’ve written about loving a woman because they think it will sell well. It takes the aesthetic of country and wears it like a poorly fitted costume. Best tracks: Take It Easy/Witchy Woman Worst Tracks: Chug All Night

The Eagles are one of those bands that by all rights I really should love -- truly talented musicians, songwriters, performers, and incredible vocal harmonies, rock/country-rock stuff, oftentime fun and upbeat tempos and also ballad-style stuff -- yet...I just don't. Not sure what's missing from them for me. Sure, I like grit and edge in rock quite a bit, but there are plenty of bands without a whole lot of grit and edge that I adore. I think it might have something to do with why I also admire but don't always love CSN. It's almost like the vocal harmonies are too perfect, I don't know. That's kind of a ridiculous thing for me to say because the Eagles and CSN recorded way, way before autotune and other tech things could perfect anyone's singing. But that's the paradox: I can absolutely admire their talents and abilities, but just don't really care much for the music. C'est la vie.
