"The music world seems to appreciate Don Henley's solo work as compared to Glenn Frey's and in many respects its quite understandable as Henley's social commentary in many of his songs are quite thought provoking. However, this collection of Glenn's is very overlooked as many fo the love songs are quite soothing. In addition, Glenn explores several interesting styles from the boogie woogie Sea Cruise to the disco flavored Don't Give Up to the gentle I Volunteer. You can't forget the frat house party hearty number.....Partytown. Maybe this disc is not quite up to desert island standards, but it sure is pretty darn good."
A post-Eagles Classic

"This album is one of Frey's best solo albums. This is not faint praise by any measure. After all, Frey has the most featured voice on the best selling album in human history. Unlike some of his albums in the mid-1980s, No Fun Alound has a consistent sound. Many of the works on these album have a blues-inspired feel that should be comfortable to fans of Glenn from the early 1970s. For what it's worth, this album is generally superior to fellow Eagle Henley's first solo album. Glenn works with many artiest that he colloaborated with during the Eagles-era including Jim Ed Norman, Jack Tempchin, and Bob Seger. Commonly mentioned stand outs on this album include "The One You Love" and "Partytown." I particularly like the last two tracks (She Can't Let Go and Don't Give Up). This album was not as commercially succuessful as some of its contemporaries since it did not pander to the faddish modernism of some other artists. There are a few songs that had modern touches but only upon a base that is solidly Frey's signature of R&B."
Glenn goes it alone

"When Glenn split from the Eagles in 1980 and decided to make solo records he made No Fun Aloud with the aid of long time Eagles collaborator Jack Tempchin and a smattering of others, Hawk Wolinski etc. You may have expected Eagles formula LA rock but Glenn wentback to his blue eyed soul roots in Detroit and released an album full of R&B in a happy throw away style. First listen and subsequent listens allowed the words unsubstantial and light weight to spring to mind but time has treated the music well and some songs have grown on me as time went on. That Girl written with Bob Seger is one, as is I Volunteer which sounds a bit like Eagles, On the Border period. Don`t Give Up utilises 80`s electronics effectively and sounds vaguely Eagles Long Runnish. Sea Cruise is a joy in a happy go lucky Jamaica/R&B style while the Hit off the album the One You Love is a lovely ballad which brings a touch of moistness to the eye (occassionaly) While Don was venting his political spleen Glenn was having a good time. Treat this album as just that a good time record."
