A#1 King Of The Hill Top of the....wait a minute this is the Eagles not Frankie. Any these dudes sure fly high on this release. The weakest song on this disc is Best Of My Love and that number is damn good. I disagree with the previous reviewer as Good Day In Hell is just plain awesome. The guitars the raw energy are just fantastic there. They just don't make discs like this anymore.

About this topic

Wiki

On their third album, the Eagles finally produced a No. 1 hit with "The Best of My Love," but most ofOn the Borderis marked by tough rockers, not sweet ballads. "Already Gone" is a brusque kiss-off and "Midnight Flyer" a bluegrass kicker, while "James Dean" recalls the '50s rebel icon, and the title track reflects on paranoia and creeping Big Brotherism. The Eagles also cover aTom Waitstune, "Ol' 55," and pay tribute to alt-country godfatherGram Parsonson "My Man." The album title is prophetic in the sense that the band that made this record (bolstered by the addition of guitarist Don Felder) was on the verge of greatness, but not quite there yet.--Daniel Durchholz
