    I love this song, one of my favorites ever. The Grammy was well deserved!

    The 20th, Dreamer? Iím younger than I thought!

    Seriously, though, this was a wonderful honor for Don and he was very deserving.

    I knew it was 30 years, but must have had 2020 on my mind. But, I'm all over knocking 10 years off my age.

    Happy 31st Birthday to the End of the Innocence album. My favorite of Don's. Great songs on there.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother.

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO THE END OF THE INNOCENCE!!!

    This is Don at his finest IMHO. I love this album too - it is my favorite of all Don's solo albums and my second favorite Eagles solo album of all time.

    I appreciate the title track so much more now that Iím older. Beautiful. I remember ďIf Dirt Were DollarsĒ getting solid radio play back in the day on the local rock station...a solid album, But not a fan of the hair...90s are hard to look at fashion wise, imo.

    Happy Anniversary to EOTI.

    Not my favorite Don album, but I do prefer it over I Can't Stand Still, Inside Job, and Cass County. It's a little too stripped back for my tastes, leaning more on the pop/rock sentiment, but I can appreciate the songwriting. I prefer the more ear candy radio hits like TBOS, ASWTDID, DL, SG, etc. Count me in as a synthesizer-laden Building The Perfect Beast fan. I can't get enough of that 80s sound that some love to hate.

    Great album. I still share the same thoughts as I posted last year.

    I'm a BTPB super fan, but this is my 2nd favorite of Don's albums. On this record, New York Minute is my favorite song. I do notice a definite heavy leaning on simplistic, pulled back acoustic sounds on this record, particularly on the title track and THOTM. I like the title track more between those two. I feel like perhaps I've grown tired of THOTM over the years, although if I'm being fair I wasn't big on it ever, but I've gained a new appreciation for the title track. Should have been played with the Eagles in their unplugged set.

    That said, as someone who normally either prefers an electric rockin' sound or more of an 80s synth thing, I feel it's still a good record to me and has songs I do like. I just feel like that this record while seen as the pinnacle of Don's solo work, let's just say, is perhaps not exciting enough for someone who appreciates AC/DC and Angus's stage antics. It's the same reason I don't "get" Dylan's work himself but love it when people like Guns N' Roses, The Rolling Stones, or Jimi Hendrix cover him. I'm really not an acoustic music soft rock kind of guy. I definitely am not a classy listener who gets into deep lyrical meaning or needs a song to be mentally enlightening. My music taste and what I'm after most of the time can be compared to what fast food is to formal dining. Spaghetti-O's vs a real Italian restaurant with fancy dishes. lol. No suit, no problem!
