5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite album of all time, 8 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Tusk (Audio CD)
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.

Agreed, Rascalali, Tusk IS incredible. I still love the Mac - have been to see their most recent concerts - Buckingham is always on fire, love his solo stuff, and love his hyper-creativity (check out FM's 2003 'Say You Will' album). The man is always bypassed when it comes to any credit for his contribution to music, he's a one off and he deserves some recognition as so.

Fair comments but not all their songs were 'sunny' before this album anyway. 'Gold Dust Woman' 'Silver Springs' or 'The Chain' are not sunny!!
