Wow, Johnny. Tough one! Had to compare each track on each album side by side. My winner...by the thinnest of margins....

Re: Rumors or Hotel California

Rumors holds a special place in my heart. One of the first records I really got into. But Hotel is great too.

Hotel California. Maybe the first album I knew word for word.

Re: Rumors or Hotel California

Chose "Rumours" because I simply believe it's a stronger album. Not a weak song on it and definitely ear candy. I don't particularly care for a few songs on "Hotel California" although some songs found here are among my all-time personal Eagle favorites such as "Try And Love Again".

Re: Rumors or Hotel California

Hotel California is the best song from either of these but as far as the whole album I vote for Rumors.

Re: Rumors or Hotel California

I concur - this is one of the toughest polls I've seen!

Both are top shelf albums. I'll take Hotel California by a nose.
