I've never been a big fan of "Hotel California," but when I found this album on vinyl at Goodwill for $0.50, I couldn't turn it down. Although the album has a lot of big ideas and a lot of things to say, I just couldn't really get into it. "Hotel California" is just a song that gets way too much airplay, and I'm tired of it. Ditto with "Life in the Fast Lane." Nothing else on the album really held my attention. AllMusic.com gives the album a rave review, though, so one day I might give the album another spin and another chance.
