    I'm voting for The Long Run.

    It has strong songs, yes, but several are weak, and a couple are downright awful. When you have not one, not two, but three songs that are regularly listed among fans' least favorites on an album of only 10 songs total, then something has gone very wrong.

    I am conflicted, but I think I will also vote TLR. With a couple of exceptions, this just seems kind of a "dark" album (understandably so, with all they were dealing with).

    I've given this a lot of thought, I couldn't decide between Eagles and The Long Run, but I'm going with The Long Run. I love Heartache Tonight and the title song, but imo they're not enough to save it, considering that the worst songs they've done are all on this album. They could have done better, especially at this point in their careers.

    I vote for The Long Run.

    There's no way, ever, that I could vote off Eagles since it has TIE, WW, and PEF, so you all will have to do it without me. Lol I don't care that they weren't the sole writers. They OWN those songs and they were my first introduction to them as a band. The other songs aren't awful either. Actually I really like all of them except for the bird chirping in Earlybird.

    The Long Run has some great songs such as TLR and HT, but there are those 3! lol

    As far as The Long Run, The Disco Strangler is the only song that I don't care for. I can listen to it, but I agree it is among the band's worst songs. I personally don't feel that Teenage Jail is as bad as some others do, and I actually like GDWNF - I think it's very catchy and clever. IMHO, Eagles has three songs that I don't consider any better than TLR songs mentioned. Again, I don't hate them, but I consider Earlybird, Take the Devil, and Tryin' as some of the band's weakest songs. I can't save The Long Run, but I'm sad to see it go because I think it is underrated. So, once again ...

    I cast my vote for Eagles.

    The next album to be eliminated in Eagles’ Album Survivor is The Long Run. “The Long Run”, the tribe has spoken and you are gonna have a heartache tonight. You may think you are the king of Hollywood, but we didn’t see it that way – we geeks don’t want no freaks here. So, it’s time to put on those shoes and start making your way off the island. You can head to the Sad Café and sulk once you’re back in the city.
