Análisis - :
The Eagles exploded on the charts in 1975 with One of These Nights, the first of four straight albums by the band to reach No. 1. The album was their most varied to date, with the discofied title track, the stately waltz "Take It To the Limit," and the tough, cynical country rocker "Lyin' Eyes." The album contains a couple of unusual numbers as well, including Bernie Leadon's psychedelic banjo showcase "Journey of the Sorcerer" and "I Wish You Peace," which Leadon wrote with his then-girlfriend, future first daughter (by virtue of her parents, Ron and Nancy Reagan) and nude model (courtesy of Playboy), Patti Davis. --Daniel Durchholz

- One Of The Best Albums Of The 70's

Along with "Hotel California",it ranks as one of the finest 70's rock albums.The fact that the album tracks(Too Many Hands,Hollywood Waltz,Visions,After The Thrill Is Gone,the weirdly gorgeous Journey Of The Sorcerer instrumental)are actually better than the three overplayed-but-still-awesome hits(Take It To Limit,Lyin' Eyes,One Of These Nights)only testifies this record's musical excellance!Its no wonder why it turned The Eagles into a household name!

- Overall, the Eagles' best effort

'One of these nights' is the Eagles' best album to date. While most Eagles albums are spotty through out, this one stands strong.

Several hits came out of this record, including "Lyin' eyes", "Take it to the limit" and the title track. Although, there are more than hits included here as well. "After the thrill is gone" is a great song. Don Felder's only lead vocal contribution, "Visions" is one of the album's finer moments. And the slow "I wish you peace" builds to a fitting conclusion for the album.

Even some of the odd, or weak songs are pretty good. "Too many hands", and "Hollywood waltz" get better the more you listen to them. And the instrumental "Journey of the Sorcerer" is just different enough to keep your attention.

If there is a true Eagles album to have (not including any of their 'Greatest hits' packages) this is the one. Anyone interested in the Eagles, if you started off here, you won't regret it.

- If It Weren't For Douglas Adams, I Wouldn't Be An Eagles Fan

When I found out that the very familiar "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" radio and TV series theme music was an Eagle's instrumental called "Journey Of The Sorcerer", as soon as I owned a CD player, I went right out and bought this album. The instrumental song is a very interesting, as well as the longest track, on the album. Other songs that aren't radio airplay songs, but I still love them anyway are "Visions", and "After The Thrill Is Gone".

After buying this album, I evenually purchased all six of the Eagles albums from 1972 to 1979. If it weren't for Douglas Adams, author of the Hitchhiker's Guide series, I would not have become such a big Eagles fan.

- Another Hit

One Of These Nights is the last album to feature original member Bernie Leadon. As he was the truest country rocker in the band, it is also their last album to feature country rock songs. The album opens with the title track, which signaled the direction they would be going in. The spooky bass and ringing guitars helped make it their second number one single. "Too Many Hands" is a searing rocker while "Hollywood Waltz" contains a beautiful Don Henley vocal and as the title suggests a country waltz sound. "Journey To The Sorcerer" is a Bernie Leadon banjo instrumental that is just a hair too long, but still fascinating. "Lyin' Eyes" is the band's apex in the country-rock vein and is more country than rock. Randy Meisner's best song with the band is the soaring "Take It To The Limit". "Visions" is a solid song while "After The Thrill Is Gone" is a quiet number about love's lost. Mr. Leadon must have known his days with the band were numbered as he closes out the album with the lamenting "I Wish You Peace". One Of These Nights started the Eagles dominance on the charts from '75-'80 and became their first chart-topper.

- Pretty Good Primacy

This album established the Eagles' primacy on the airwaves and the arena circuit. There's no need to discuss the three singles that also appeared on the first Greatest Hits, you've heard 'em, you know whether you like 'em. Me, I'm in for all three, with the title track and its intro being one of the Eagles' best moments.

Apart from the hits, if I were cherry-picking tracks for download or compiling my own best of the Eagles, "Journey of the Sorcerer" would be the first one on the portable mp3 player. A six or seven minute instrumental, something unique in the Eagles' catalog, and it maintains interest for the duration of the track.

The album's weakness is that the rockers just don't hold their own. Of the six non-single tracks, "Visions" and "Too Many Hands" are the two rockers, and unfortunately they're the two weakest tracks on the album. The remaining three ballads make this the mellowest of the Eagles' albums. None are on a par with the ballads from the

album such as "Bitter Creek", "Saturday Night" or "Tequila Sunrise" but they hold their own.

In spite of any shortcomings, for my money this was the last solid Eagles album. When the CD era came along I surprised myself by snapping up the first four Eagles albums almost immediately; I'd always enjoyed those Eagles albums on vinyl but never particularly thought of myself as a fan. But sometimes our actions reveal our priorities and when the CD era arrived I found that my appreciation of the Eagles had grown over time.

The Eagles released three albums after this before breaking up (the first time) -
