    A surprise finish but both worthy of the win.
    Dreamer, Thank You for running this game and all the others too. I know you probably have a busy life so thanks for taking the time to do this. I'm sure it can get time consuming. I agree with FF- I also enjoy the send off to each album.

    Congratulations to Desperado on the win!!! I wouldn't have been upset either way, but the songs on Desperado just speak to me more!

    Thanks for running the game, dreamer! It's always fun and I enjoy everyone's thoughts!

    First of all - Congrats to Desperado on the upset victory.

    Although, I believe Hotel California is the band's crowning achievement and should be the winner in just about any contest, I do love the Desperado album too. It is a superb piece of work.

    As I read Delilah's post about the rankings of the band's albums on the RateYour Music website, it just confirms how subjective rating music really is. As I read their list, I was thinking that sure isn't the way I rank the albums. Here's the order that I rank the albums in this game ...

    1. Hotel California
    2. Desperado
    3. On the Border
    4. Long Road Out of Eden
    5. The Long Run
    6. One of These Nights
    7. Eagles
    8. Eagles Live
    9. Hell Freezes Over

    I would love to see others lists if y'all are interested in sharing.

    And thanks again for the compliments everyone - glad all of you enjoy the Survivor games.

    I completely agree Dreamer! Personally I still am curious about how they get their data for that ranking. I agree with you 100% on HC!

    Thanks for running another Survivor!

    1. Hotel California
    2. The Long Run
    3. One Of These Nights
    4. On The Border
    5. Long Road Out Of Eden
    6. Eagles
    7. Desperado

    Personally the live albums are hard to mix in with the studio albums. But I do rate Eagles Live much higher than Hell Freezes Over. HFO had great moments like GOI, ITC, LITFL, and TIE. But the rest just seemed too much like a Don show and I donít like Hotel California as an acoustic song at all.

    Here are my rankings:

    1.) Hotel California
    2.) One of These Nights
    3.) On The Border
    4.) Desperado
    5.) Long Road Out Of Eden
    6.) Eagles Live
    7.) Eagles
    8.) The Long Run
    9.) Hell Freezes Over

    HC was their crowning achievement and I feel deserves to be #1. The LR is one of my least favorite albums - it has four of my least favorite songs. Everyone knows what they are - I have said it often enough - lol ! Through the years I think Desperado has gained a lot of respect and seems more popular than when it was released all those years ago. JMHO, but HFO has too many Don songs. I think the boot-leg copy of night two has a better selection of songs and should have been released long ago on CD.

    Dreamer - Many thanks for running another survivor contest !

    Well - three of us have posted and look how different each of our lists are. My list has pretty much stayed the same over the years except I can switch the order of The Long Run and One of These Nights on any given day. To me, they are very close in quality. But, again, these lists just validate how subjective our love of music really is methinks.

    As far as the RateYourMusic website, I canít say for sure but my impression is that the members generally lean toward the serious side of music fandom, and are more likely to intently listen to entire albums than casual fans. Even though itís all subjective, itís interesting to see a general consensus that Desperado, for example, is considered one of the best Eagles, if not the best, albums.
