I originally had this album on cassette when it was first released and have played it to breaking point ever since. Only recently have I purchased it on CD and I still have the greatest respect for Fleetwood Mac, one of my favourite groups. This album saw a change in personnel since 'Tango In The Night'. Out went Lindsey Buckingham and in came Billy Burnette and Rick Vito. Lindsey Buckingham has a guest appearance on the title track 'Behind The Mask' playing acoustic guitar. This album brings a different sound to the usual Fleetwood Mac style we're used to. And on this album it works really well I think.
There's a country, blues fusion added to the usual mix and although there are some negative reviews on here, I find that the style used on this album in particular, works a treat. I think the strangest track on this album is 'In The Back Of My Mind' where the keyboards are used to good effect and followed up by the rest of the band. My favourite tracks on here are probably 'Skies The Limit', 'Save Me', 'Hard Feelings' and 'When It Comes To Love'.
A different style to this album then, and obviously not to everyone's tastes but I have grown used to it and find the quirky side of this album is a nice addition to the Fleetwood Mac collection. Original, quirky and intriguing.
