Biography

While most bands undergo a number of changes over the course of their careers, few groups experienced such radical stylistic changes as Fleetwood Mac. Initially conceived as a hard-edged British blues combo in the late '60s, the band gradually evolved into a polished pop/rock act over the course of a decade. Throughout all of their incarnations, the only consistent members of Fleetwood Mac ... Read more in Amazon's Fleetwood Mac Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect pop... 1 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
For me this album is Rumours part 2. Thats not to say it sounds anything like "Rumours" but more where "Rumours" left off. In its time it had a fair number of hit singles ("Hold me", "Gypsy", "Oh Diane") and made Fleetwood Mac popular again after the public rejection of "Tusk". To add to the wonderfully romantic hit singles are some of the Fleets greatest works...check out the wonderously slow build up in "Only over you", the guitar riff on "Eyes of the world" and the crazy beat of "Empire State"..
They were so near to making the perfect pop album...
Still, 4 stars is not bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Polished 16 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album holds a slightly weird place in Fleetwood Mac's history. The classic line up is there so that at least guarantees it is better than any post Buckingham or post Nicks album which followed. But compared to 'Say You Will' being such a fine return to form, post Christine McVie (!!) it struggles to compete for the most part. Because it seems to me at least that the band were going through the motions somewhat....there are several fine moments here for sure but any great sense of daring or adventure as witnessed on Tusk (1979) is lacking. This is a safe record. Almost deliberately commercial after the wounding insults levelled at Tusk, this album is easy on the ear, if not exactly Easy Listening. But Rumours (1977) was also commercial, and considerably better than this.
Of course by most people's standards this is a fine album. We have after all the superb Gypsy from Stevie Nicks, the effortless single Oh Diane from Buckingham and at least one classic from Christine McVie in the closing number 'Wish You Were Here'. 'Hold Me' is catchy and inoffensive without achieving anything approaching classic status. 'Eyes Of the World' is compulsive Buckingham in the style he so ably demonstrated on Tusk. The rest is filler for the most part, enyoyable filler I admit at times ('Can't Go Back', 'That's Alright', 'Empire State') but the Stevie Nicks track 'Straight Back' is hardly worthy of a Nicks solo effort.
So this is The Mac treading water. They could still swim but were not making many waves with this. Compared to their best work at least. If halves were allowed then this would be 3,5 max. But as they are not, I will give it four, as my expectations are ridiculously high when I think of what they are capable of. I still play this album quite often after all so it is not an irrelevance by any means!

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly my favourite Fleetwood Mac album. 30 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
I am not entirely sure what it is about this album that I love so much. Rumours is a real classic, Tusk is pure energy, and another favourite, and the self titled effort from 1975 is sublime. In all honesty, I rate these three albums an astonishing 10/10. Like the majority of the works by The Beatles, these are genuine masterpieces, and personal tastes aside, there is not one thing I could ever change about these albums. Fleetwood Mac (1975) continues the sound Buckingham and Nicks started on, well, there lost classic Buckingham Nicks, with the additional talents of the great Fleetwood Mac to boost their appeal. Rumours especially is that rare thing: a multi million selling pop behemoth worth its weight in gold, and so worth all the hype heaped upon it. And Tusk...good grief...I love all 20 songs, and the artwork on the vinyl is stunning.

So what about Mirage? I held back for a long time from buying this. I heard it was "bland". I couldn't disagree more! Yes, its soft and squishy. Its the fluffy pillow to Rumours velvet cushion. I absolutely love it for that very reason! You cry in the arms of Rumours. You giggle and hug Mirage. Every song soothes me, and late at night, to help me wind down, I play Mirage and all feels right in the world.

Love in Store: its a lovely, lovely opener. I prefer it as an opening track over Rumours Second Hand News. Lovely harmonies. 8/10

Can't Go Back: a refreshing change of pace to the work he did on Tusk, this Lindsey Buckingham track puts me in mind of some of his earlier work on the Buckingham Nicks album (another 10/10- a genuine flawless work of art), and Fleetwood Mac (1975). 8/10

That's Alright: genuine classic Stevie. Not much I can say about this track, but I love this song. 7.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mirage 17 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
Being a huge Fleetwood Mac, this album slightly disappoints. By far, the best song is the fabby Gypsy by the fantastic Stevie Nicks. However, their live Mirage Tour was one of their very best and if they could have made a DVD out of it, it would have been a best seller. That saying, a worthwhile addition to any Fleetwood Mac collectables.

Of all the eight major Fleetwood Macs albums recognisably Fleetwood Mac (i.e nothing before the all-important 1975 acquisition of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks), excluding the virtually redundant 1995 album "Time", on which time should probably have been called, nothing truly encompasses perfection to me as the twelve illustrious tunes sparkling on this record like jewels. Many seem underwhelemed, if not flat out exasperated by the more radio-friendly fluidity of this piece, but I couldn't defend it more for that very reason. After all, just because an act prefers to bow to commercial to favour, it's never a slave to the easy route if they don't completely compromise their artistic vision, and with each of the three main players delivering not one lacking tune, it's clearly their most consistent effort. This was actually the album of theirs I got last, so unlike all the rest, it was the one whose ditties I was utterly unfamiliar with, despite the three singles included on their 1988 best of. And I was utterly captivated.

Their 1975 eponymous album-first as a proper unit was a little dull, displaying little of the effrontery they emblazoned so perfectly on "Rumours" but even that album wasn't perfect; no it really wasn't. It left of 'Silver Springs' as a necessary cut, instead including the almost stagnating 'I Don't Want To Know'-and worse, the utterly unpleasant 'You Make Loving Fun' which boasts the most wretched ill-bred marriage of McVie's perky saccharine sludge at it's very worst to the most mundane and stiff instrumentation both she and Lindsey were ever guilty of, and she couldn't have sung a song more lifelessly or ineffectively if she half tried it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Golden oldie
I first purchased this not long after its issue in 1982, and some of its tracks now seem dated. Also, the production quality is variable and probably not what you'd expect today. Read more

This isn't so much the sound of Fleetwood Mac treading water as the sound of unhappy, disunited individuals abusing the goodwill of their fanbase. Read more

This is actually an under-rated classic, up there with the Mac's best albums. Yes, it does have the execrable 'Oh Diane', the worst song on the album and one of the worst songs... Read more
