    Rumours. Not even close. Eagles are a band I just cant get into, save for a small handful of tunes. Hotel California is easily one of the most overplayed tunes on classic rock radio. Cant stand that song.

    Fudd is not going to be happy with you! Have you ever listened to the entire Hotel California album?

    I have. My oldest sister is an Eagles fan. Not my thing. I find much of their stuff boring. Not as boring as that Pink Floyd shit, but boring nonetheless.

    Rumours for me. In fact, Fleetwood Mac over the Eagles, by a mile.

    this was hard for me because, unlike the camp that feels the title track is overplayed, I think HC is one of the most epic songs by any band... ever. I like HC better than any song on the Rumors record, and I REALLY LOVE Rumors.

    That being said, I did vote for Fleetwood Mac on this one because, top to bottom, it's a much more solid album.

    Not a big Eagles fan, but I easily pick HC here.
    Don't like Nicks and Buckingham-era (pop era) Fleetwood Mac at all. But if we're talking about Peter Green and Bob Welch-era, that's the other story.

    That's like saying the Mitch Malloy era was the best Van Halen.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    A man's rights rests in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box

    I think all 8 songs on HC are masterpieces and You Make Loving Fun is the best song on Rumours.
