He uses background vocals to great effect, whether it's the tragic ballad "New York Minute" (with vocal group Take 6) or the angry rocker "I Will Not Go Quietly" (with Axl Rose of Guns N' Roses). His collaboration with Bruce Hornsby on the opening title track show a mature Henley singing about disillusionment over a beautiful piano riff that gives the song a timeless air of nostalgia.
The end of innocence applies much more closely with those of us who were drafted into the military than it does with Reagan's all-volunteer military. How can you claim a loss of innocence by joining a military that you volunteered for? But I think the real end of the innocence was the loss of faith in the government when we found out that LBJ lied about the Gulf of Tonkin incident to get us into the war and that Congress was doing all it could to prevent the war from coming to a successful conclusion. G from Potomac, MdDoes anyone else feel like Don Henley criticizing lawyers in this song (lawyers dwell on small details, etc) is a little bit inappropriate? Let's not forget that this is the same Don Henley who was arrested for being caught with a sixteen year old prostitute, cocaine, cannabis, and perscription drugs not perscribed to him in Las Vegas.

The album's stirring finale is another return to Don's tangible but rarely seen forgiving side, and he admits applying the message of "The Heart Of The Matter" in a way, helped with the Eagles reunion 5 years later. It's hard to locate a low point in the album, as all the songs are memorable, even if the views don't agree with yours. End of the Innocence is just a fantastic song. other than that and the bit of a weak lead in song (Dirt for Dollars) for The Heart of the Matter, not a whole lot to complain about here. Somehow getting a CD with only 8 songs while the original End of the Innocence was 15 seems wrong on so many levels.
