11 Songs, 39 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours practically defined FM-radio in the late-‘70s. The group’s three main songwriters each carved out their territory as their romantic lives with each other were falling apart. Stevie Nicks had a touch of mystic (“Dreams”, “Gold Dust Woman”). Christine McVie wrote universal anthems (“Don’t Stop”, “Songbird”) and Lindsey Buckingham churned out dynamic pop confectionaries with undercurrents of emotional distress (“Second Hand News”, “Go Your Own Way”). Spinning tragedy into gold was clearly their specialty.

Just a superb album from start to finish!

I wasn't around until after this album was released but it is my belief that if the music needs to get through it will no matter how many years after its release. Song after song this record just eats away into your soul. There are so many reasons why this will remain one of the greatest records of all time, from pain drenched tones of Buckingham on Go Your Own Way, to the beautiful harmonies on Dreams. Mick Fleetwood really brings it home on the drums and with 'The Chain' they give you the best baseline ever! I freaking love this album and find something new to love with every listen, my favourite song changes everytime too. Buy it, you won't regret it!

Missed it the first time round

I was born in 72 and missed this the first time round. Now after 20+ years I have finally gave it a proper listen. I cannot stop playing it. My daughter love it too. Just goes to show good music always shine through.

Epic

I'm 17, the music people my age listen to is ridiculous. I'm so glad I was brought up well and introduced to the genius creations of the likes of Fleetwood Mac, The Doors, Frank Sinatra, The Stranglers and so on.

This album is my favourite of all time, you should read up on its story too to fully appreciate it!
