I purchased this cd thinking that this album was the 2013 remaster. I received it yesterday only to find after listening to it that this cd is a 2004, old remaster. The music isn't crisp. lively or at all sounding like a remaster done this year. I have the 2004 remaster & I listened to the 2004 version & the 2013 REMASTER & they technically sound the same. The new remaster version should have huge improvments in sound. This version doesn't. DON'T BUY THIS VERSION. PURCHASED THE REAL 2013 REMASTER-DELUXE VERSION. YOU GET THE FULL ALBLUM & BONUS TRACKS. YOU WILL GET SIGNIGICANTLY BETTER SOUND BUT THE DELUXE VERSION WILL COST YOU MORE $ £. DO NOT BUY THE SO CALLED REMASTER, BUT THE DELUXE VERSION.

I have resisted giving the obligatory five stars for this review although I appreciate that most reviewers have awarded the full amount in theirs. I feel that the album, as good as it is, is brilliant with the well known tracks such as the best track on the disc and the best recorded by Mac in my opinion, "Dreams", and others such as "Go Your Own Way, Don't Stop, You Make Lovin' Fun" and "The Chain". However, some other tracks such as "Never Going Back Again, Songbird" and "I Don't Want To Know", although pleasant enough, have a filler drop in quality feel to those songs. This creates an unbalanced listen and I admit to skipping the latter songs mentioned in my review.

Despite my admittedly picky review, "Rumours" is a beautifully iconic and legendary album and it is easy to see why for many, it is their favourite album of all time. As previously aforementioned, in my opinion, "Dreams" written and performed by the gorgeous Stevie Nicks, is the highlight of the album and of the Fleetwood Mac back catalogue of songs. Macs almost as legendary personal struggles going on at the time of the recording of "Rumours" are well known and are reflected in the best songs on the album, "Dreams" and "Go Your Own Way".

The audio quality on this cd is pristine and the eight page liner contains lyrics to all the songs, photos of the band and a list of personnel and recording details.

Highly recommended, this is an almost perfect album from one of the best groups ever to enter a recording studio.

My copy is the same as everybody else's that have commented in that there is absolutely nothing within the sleeve notes to say this is a remastered 35th anniversary edition but I can definitely say this sounds noticably superior to my previous CD version of Rumours so I'm happy with it. Funnily enough, my previous CD gave no clue regarding the issue date either - just '1977' which clearly wasn't when the CD was issued!

Who would have thought that an album featuring two sets of squabbling couples would go on to be one of the biggest selling records of all time.But that is exactly what Rumours is. An album where two couples vent their spleen against one another over the course of some songs. But God what songs they are. From Stevie Nicks we get Dreams(the only US no.1 lifted from the album),from Lindsay Buckingham we get Go Your Own Way(with its unforgettable opening line) and Never Going Back Again and Christine McVie with the beautiful Songbird. Of course they could also knock out killer pop tunes like Don't Stop, Second Hand News,You Make Loving Fun and The Chain complete with that amazing bass line courtesy of John McVie.And let us not forget the contribution of Mick Fleetwood who managed to hold everything together and deliver some great drumming.Alright, it is all very slick and Californian but as an album it has no equals and stands as the high point in Fleetwood Macs career.

Now and again one comes across an album that hasn't got a duff or even a "make-weight" track on it. Every track is, in it's own way, a winner.
This is such an album.Wow!

The sort of record I could leave on repeat play for a while.
My opinion, yours may differ.

Variations on this boilerplate text will be applied to a very small number of albums where necessary - to a handful of "desert Island" discs that don't need trimming down or skipped tracks.

i made my daughter sit down and listen to this properly a couple of weeks ago.
it was wonderful watching her face light up.
"I know this!" and "Is THAT Fleetwood Mac?" and "Why didn't you tell me about this before?"

Like with Monty Python, she was aware of innumerable cultural references to the album in samples, soundtrack snippets...

Timeless.

I am astonished to see there are people that have not rates this album 5 stars with one lunatic rating it 1 star. This is without a doubt the finest album ever made, I like all types of music and have loads of favourite bands however this is the only album I have ever heard without one weak song, every single song on it is good with some of then such as gold dust woman, you make loving fun, the chain and dreams absolutely outstanding. If Sara from the disappointing follow up album Tusk had been on Rumours instead then they would have had musical perfection.If you don't own this album you HAVE to buy it - albums do not get better than this

Some albums are hyped up and upon listening to them you wonder what all the fuss is about, however Rumors is not one of those. The classic Fleetwood Mac album is an absolute joy to hear and deserves a place in everyone's collection.

It speaks volumes about the strength of the album when EVERY song is just pure gold, believe me there is no filler here! My favorite songs are: Go Your Own Way, Gold Dust Woman, Dreams, Never Going Back Again, The Chain and You Make Loving Fun.
Absolute gem of an album with 11 superbly crafted songs.

Brilliant CD, I bought this as an LP many years ago and played and played it, until C.D;s came into fashion and I never replaced it until now. This is fabulously re-mastered and so much better than my old tinny LP, has revived my love for Fleetwood Mac all over again, every track is brilliant, even the ones you might not have heard,, after a few plays they become favorites. Can't recommend this enough, even if you aren't a die-hard Fleetwood fan, sure you'll love it, it's a classic album that has lasted through the years and will never date

This album is, quite simply, a class act!

The Buckingham/Nicks partnership engendered such memorable melodies, vocal chemistry on the harmonies (with Christine McVie too) and lyrical truisms.

They transformed the band from a blues-based outfit to a mainstream rock group. I hate to say this but one could argue that they could have found any decent bassist and drummer to join the band, they would have still been great, such is the contribution by Lindsey and Stevie.

Rumours, what can I write about this? Most of the songs are instantly recognisable, some bits are so familiar you might swear Fleetwood Mac nicked the riff from somewhere else.

Rumours is an album of it's time, featuring a band at it's peak and has become a classic.

You might have worn your old copy out, you might never have owned it before, but whatever reason you buy this album for you will soon appreciate it for what it is.

A true classic.
