The three hundred and fifty-fourth album: #354 The Eagles - Hotel California
With the title track enduring in the public consciousness for so long - for good reason - the big question listening to the album is whether it holds up after that. Lyrically, it does, with lines that need some time to unpack and feel like they're going deeper. It might not be as surreal as Hotel California, but it has its own depth. Musically, it's not quite as surreal as Hotel California feels, but they do fit in well with the feel the band is going for and repeatedly, the songs feel right in how they're put together - not in production, but from pure song writing.
