    I just listened to my DVD-A of Hotel California tonight and once again, I'm reminded of just how freaking incredible this album is. Brilliant!

    I've been listening to the CD in my car this past week, and I must say I have been enjoying it immensely. Truly a piece of work this one is!

    I need to get the DVD-A sometime. As far as the album... I truly hate to say this, but...... I told you so!

    It's truly the masterpiece of the 70s. Sums up rock n' roll very, very well IMO. Certainly the best concept album I think. It takes you on a journey from beginning to end, which I LOVE about any album. It tells a story and it like a movie with no picture. I love albums where every song connects with one another and it doesn't seem like every song tells a completely different story. I like when albums have a theme although there are some concept records I don't personally like, but for the most part I love them.

    Well - I didn't forget about this, but I'm just getting around to posting the results of our Hotel California album poll. I doubt if anyone will be surprised to hear that Hotel California has the most points, with New Kid In Town trailing in second place. So here we go ...

    1. Hotel California - 84 points
    2. New Kid In Town - 74 points
    3. Life In the Fast Lane - 68 points
    4. Victim of Love - 65 points
    5. Wasted Time - 59 points
    6. Pretty Maids All In a Row - 50 points
    7. The Last Resort - 43 points
    8. Try and Love Again - 40 points
    9. Wasted Time Reprise - 12 points

    As always, Thanks to those who participated and if anyone else wants to post their list, please feel free, and I will update the results.

    I'm late to the party again! Love this album, although to be fair since I haven't replaced my vinyl copy yet I mostly listen to the songs from other compilations i.e. Very Best Of, or HFO.

    My list is:

    1. The Last Resort
    2. New Kid In Town
    3. Hotel California
    4. Life In the Fast Lane
    5. Wasted Time
    6. Victim of Love
    7. Pretty Maids All In a Row
    8. Try and Love Again
    9. Wasted Time Reprise

    The first 5 change around a bit, but there's a definite gap between my top 5 and the others (which I still like very much).
