    I love this album (although its not without some filler IMO). My favorite of Don's.

    I don't think I mentioned that back in the beginning of the year I found this album on CD at a Deseret Industries thrift store in Provo, along with Eagles collection: the early years. I have not listened to either albums yet. Call me picky but when I hear the songs I don't know for the first time, I don't want it to be through headphones. I would rather wait until I am able to get a good stereo system. And also hearing the title track and my favorite Henley solo, HOTM needs to be heard on a big system.

    Happy 34th Birthday to The End of The Innocence 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

    As someone who prefers the more 80s synth-laden sound of Building The Perfect Beast, this album had to do some growing on me. I can now appreciate the more acoustic and piano heavy tracks. I really do love New York Minute and The Heart Of The Matter and I also like the title track. I feel like that song in particular was the perfect response to the dastardliness of American government at the time but the whole album could be seen as a response to what was going on in the country at that time while not being overt.

    Probably his most raw and down to earth solo effort to date. There isn't a lot of fluff or pizazz on that record but it's a solid record that I feel like captures Don's sound and vibe.

    I love this album. From start to finish, it is Don's strongest solo effort, IMHO.

    The End of the Innocence is a great album.

    This is going to sound silly for me to say:

    The funky, keyboard, and drum machine type songs with guitar solos from Don Henley's solo career such as 'Dirty Laundry', 'All She Wants To Do Is Dance, 'Sunset Grill', 'Drivin' With Your Eyes Closed', 'Nobody Else in the World but You', 'The End of the Innocence', 'New York Minute', and 'I Will Not Go Quietly' would make great music for law firms.

    I considered this music in a genre called 'law firm rock.'
