    Default Eagles' Albums Survivor

    Time for the Eagles Albums Survivor, where we vote off the each Eagles album until we get to the last one standing!

    If you're new, for a basic overview of the game, see this post: Survivor Overview

    I'm going to list all of the Eagles albums in the competition here. Vote for the album that you feel should be eliminated from the list. The album that gets the most votes will be taken off of the list (or, in the language of Survivor, "voted off of the island.") Each round, one more album will get axed, until there's only one left. Remember: you're voting for the one you think should GO, not the one you think should stay.

    Note: Do not criticize how/why other people vote. Their reasons are their own and they are free to vote however they like. Also, never attack a fellow poster. You can disagree without making it personal. Sometimes these games can get heated, but remember... it's still just a game.

    Each round will last 48 hours after posting to give people a chance to vote who don't post every day. That means that the first round will end at 8:00 Eastern time the day after tomorrow. If you miss a round, don't think you can't play. It's all good!

    Since there may be discussion posts, be sure to make it clear when you are casting your vote. Once the board clock strikes 8:00 pm Eastern on the second day, no more votes will be counted for that round - even if it's only seconds after. Your votes also cannot be changed once you have voted, even if you change your mind or make a mistake. Once it's on the record, that's it - so be careful!

    If you get confused about what round we are in, look at this post. I'll always update it to reflect the current round. Also feel free to post any questions if you don't understand what's going on.

    If there is a tiebreaker, then ALL votes from ALL previous rounds are tallied and whoever has the most prior votes is eliminated. Thatís the way itís done on the real show, thatís the way itís done here. If there is a complete tie with prior votes (Murphyís Law), then I'll have a sudden-death trivia question ready. The tie-breaker question will be asked one hour after results are in, if there is need for it. The first person who answers it correctly gets to break the tie. The odds of that happening are slim, but you never know, and it's good to be prepared. The exception is the last round. If the tiebreaker does not resolve the last round, then the tie will be allowed to stand.

    In order to avoid voter fraud and trolling, we require that you must be "a member in good standing" as defined by the Terms of Service for at least two weeks before the start of the game in order to cast a vote.


    So let get this game started Ö

    IMPORTANT!

    Hey everyone Ė I went ahead and posted the opening post for the Survivor game because I have to go out tonight unexpectedly. So even though the post is here to begin the game, please withhold your vote until after 8:00 p.m. EST. Any votes cast before the official starting time will be invalid and, therefore, you will have to vote again to be counted. Thanks and sorry for any inconvenience.

    I'll start.

    I cast my vote for Hell Freezes Over.


    It's great that it got the band back together, but otherwise, it's not really the greatest live album in terms of representing the band's catalog. Too short and too much solo work. I also think that live albums are more expendable in this game but that's JMHO.

    HELL FREEZES OVER. The four new songs are not the band's best work although I could probably make a case for "Get Over It." Everything else is live and familiar.

    While I don't care for the heavy amount of DH material on HFO, I can't vote for it yet. Get Over It and Love Will Keep Us Alive are Eagles staples.

    I know this will disappoint some, but this album just doesn't do it for me.

    Long Road Out Of Eden

    Iím voting for Eagles album. ​Not my favorite album.

    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. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    This is so hard.....but if I had to pick, I will go with the album I play the least...my vote Long Road Out of Eden​...this was a difficult choice!! It has great stuff on there, but I don't play it straight through as much as the others.

    I vote for the their first album. "Eagles" was a good first one for them but IMHO is by far the weakest, although it did have the "big three" - TIE, PEF & WW - which gave them their big break.

    Dreamer, thanks for doing this. I know it can be time consuming. These are always fun and always interesting to see everyone's choices.

    You're welcome, NKIT. I enjoy the games, too.

    For this round, I'll join Soda and scottside. I love the significance of HFO and, of course, love the album too. But, since we have to make such hard choices in this game, I'm going to first vote to eliminate the live albums. So ...

    I cast my vote for Hell Freezes Over.

    I'm voting for the Eagles Live album...there are no new songs on it (unless you count Seven Bridges Road).
