Every critic will tell you that Mcvie, Nicks and Buckingham were at their writing peak during the Rumours album. However, I would definitely disagree. The songs on this album are some of the finest ever written in Mac history.

Although it came under scrutiny in 1979 for being over-preduced and too experimental, it is nothing compared to the wacky and disturbingly wierd albums on the market today. Despite this fact, the experimental tracks are all those of Buckinghams, which I consider to be fantastic, particularly 'The Ledge', 'Walk a thin Line' and 'I Know I'm Not Wrong'. Also, besides 'Sisters of the Moon', Brown Eyes and possibly Angel, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie's efforts on this album could have been cut on the Rumours album... they follow the same west-coast feel.

Each song on this album is a masterpiece; it may take a few listens to get into it, but I'm certain once you do, you will appreciate how multi-layered it is. From Buckingham's Clash inspired 'Not that funny', to Nicks's tear jerkinglly beautiful ballad 'Storms'- there is something for everyone on here- it's a rock classic and a masterpiece: a must have for any music fan

An absolutely startlingly brilliant record. If you tend to go for 'alternative bands', then I can do nothing but recommend this masterpiece. And if you've pigeon-holed Fleetwood Mac as an OK but MOR rock/pop band then you seriously need to pick this one up. It's so strong, and so avant garde, that I suspect you may need to re-evaluate that assumption. It has a texture and unpredictability like nothing else I have ever heard. And if you're anything like me, you'll find yourself buying the rest of their records in the hope you'll find more of the same (which you never quite will, though its spirit occasionaly rises where you least expect it) !!!!
REM, The Smashing Pumpkins, DJ Shadow, and The Strokes to name a few have listed this record as an influence. Camper Van Beethoven actually covered the whole album. You don't get a better and more varied recommendation than that.
This is Fleetwood Mac with the gloss torn back and their hearts on their sleeves. This is what happens when you can no longer write sunny pop songs. This is what happens when the corporate slave turns against the corporate machine. It's just amazing and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Tusk was Fleetwood mac's answer to Punk or should I say Lyndsey Buckingham's answer to not doing Rumours part 2. Although not as successful as Rumours, Tusk has some great highlights including the title track. However Be warned of the single disc version with a single edit of Sara. When this was originally issued record companies felt it better to edit tracks or omit tracks so that a double album would fit on one disc. This was all rectified with the re-mastered double set, with the full version of sara restored. The second disc has demos and out takes and is quite interesting as well.So don't fall in the trap I really think this should be deleted as it has now been replaced with the complete version of the album.

I first came across Fleetwood Mac in the 70's with the release of "Rumours" and fell in love there and then. I expected to be disappointed with "Tusk"; after all you can never quite re-experience the feeling of first love, right? But I was surprised back then and I'm surprised still, because "Tusk" is a fantastic example of why Fleetwood Mac are have the longevity they've had - they can cover so many moods, styles and sounds on just one album. I bought this cd because I've kept the original vinyl double album, long after my hi-fi has given up, and have relied on a home taped version of the album all these years, to hear my favourite songs in the world. Hearing them again, so perfectly reproduced and re-presented in new ways with the out-takes and remixes this album contains, has been an utter joy. The ethereal harmonies provided by Buckingham and McVie on the 2 best songs on the album - Beautiful Child and Storms - offsetting the earthy-yet-ethereal voice of Stevie Nicks, had passed me by on the original album. How sound quality and reproduction have improved! This is a great album - for baby-boomers like me, updating their vinyl music collection into cd format, and for anyone who's only ever heard the million-selling "Rumours" and wondered whether The Mac could do it again...

Tusk...this album revolted me first listen. What's with all this noise Mr Buckingham? Cheer up Stevie! Christine who?

I was harsh, wasn't I?

Well sometimes I get it wrong as well! I had recently purchased and absorbed Rumours and the 1975 self-titled effort, and at the time I first bought Tusk, I merely liked them just enough to want a bit more. So I got this and a greatest hits compilation.

However, with the passing of time, both the self titled and Rumours became favourites in my eyes, and once I grew accustomed to the individual sounds of Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie, I once again tried Tusk.

And you know what? I absolutely loved the experience, and i couldn't believe I was listening to the same album I had poo-pooed months previously! This album is just a real artistic tour de force. Every track is a winner, and it has aged beautifully because no one has ever made music the way Fleetwood Mac did with this line up, and Fleetwood Mac never made music quite like Tusk, either before its release or after.

What Makes You Think You're The One, Save Me A Place, That's All For Everyone and I Know I'm Not Wrong...these four songs alone reveal the creative genius inside Buckingham, it is a real pleasure listening to the invention going on with these songs. Although I at first took his work on Tusk to be noisy and repetitive, I now love every song, and no two sound alike.

Stevie Nicks. What can I say? She steals this album from Buckingham's grip (bet that makes him happy). I remember initially thinking her songs boring on this. But repeated listenings made songs like Sara, Storms, Sister's Of The Moon and Angel stand out as classic Nicks, and that's not to mention the heartbreaking Beautiful Child.
