Level of familiarity before listening
I’m familiar with the Eagles, but not with this record or any of the songs on it.
What I expected
1970s stadium rock.
What it was actually like
I actually did know the title track One of These Nights, a pretty bad disco-inspired rock song. Other songs on the first side were a little better, with parts channeling Crosby, Stills and Nash.
Lyin’ Eyes was also a familiar-sounding country song, the best song on the record by far. The worst by far was I Wish You Peace: slow, boring and whiny.
2/5: bad, but I was able to listen to the whole thing
