All Fleetwood Mac Studio Albums Ranked

Mr. A. Milne "moonmanmilne"
 
Rumours
Rumours
"Probably the best break-up album ever made, Rumours is full of candid, passionate songwriting and crafted musicianship. A window into the troubled lives of the band, but also exciting and uplifting"
Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac
"Softer and poppier than Rumours, their 'white' album moves from the softest of soft rock in 'warm ways' almost to heavy metal in 'I'm so afraid', yet each songs fits perfectly into the album"
Tusk
Tusk
"Mick Fleetwood's favourite of their albums, Tusk has is diverse and adventureous, maintaining and building on the intensity of rumours with some of their best material. Pity it's so long!"
Boston Blues
Boston Blues
"Admittedly not a studio album, but Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac were far better live, and this should be seen as their great, classic work. Awesome blues rock with Green's trademark smooth guitar tone"
Mystery To Me
Mystery To Me
"The best of the Rob Welch era albums with Welch at his very best and Christine McVie's songwriting rapidly improving, it really is one of their best albums ever"
Say You Will
Say You Will
"Yet again, Fleetwood Mac rise from the ashes, greater than before with Lindsey Buckingham's guitar better than ever and a strong suite of songs. Shame there's no Christine McVie"
Then Play On
Then Play On
"A blues classic and the best studio album with Peter Green, Songs like 'Before the Beginning' will blow you away. Extended jam tracks just don't work as well on studion albums however (madge songs)"
Heroes Are Hard To Find
Heroes Are Hard To Find
"Fleetwood Mac's first US top 40 album sees further improvement in the Welch-era band with some of the Mac's best ballads. A lack of more rocking songs lets it down slightly, but only slightly"
Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac
"Despite being fairly simple, straight-up white-guy blues, this is another classic blues album that proves white guys CAN play the blues with genuine soul"
Bare Trees
Bare Trees
"Another Welch album rounds out the top 10, with great contributions from Welch, Kirwan and McVie, it's surprisingly slick and addictive listening"
Tango In The Night
Tango In The Night
"With some of Fleetwood Mac's biggest hits (in the UK at least), Tango is an album of great songs more than a great album, and is let down by Stevie Nick's contributions"
Behind The Mask
Behind The Mask
"Despite not containing any especially great songs, Behind the Mask is highly enjoyable and uplifting to listen to"
The Pious Bird Of Good Omen
The Pious Bird Of Good Omen
"Not really a studio album, but fills the gap bewteen Mr Wonderful and Then Play On and contains some of the biggest Peter Green hits. The other material is not their best however"
Future Games
Future Games
"The first Rob Welch album is great at times (title track & woman of 1000 years) but never consistently good"
Time
Time
"Yes, no Stevie Nicks! Sadly, the album does suffer from her absence, and although there are some good tracks, Christine McVie is unable to carry the album on her own"
Mr. Wonderful
Mr. Wonderful
"Some great material, but far too many Elmore James covers, and the album gets a bit repetitive"
Kiln House
Kiln House
"Without Peter Green, Fleetwood Mac just weren't the same, and took a big step away from the blues and more towards folk and country"
Penguin
Penguin
"A disappointing effort after Bare Trees and Mystery to Me, there are still some good songs, but nothing in the clas of its predecessors"
Mirage
Mirage
"Fleetwood Mac sell out? Abondoning the sounds of Tusk to try to please the record company, some of their worst songs are on this album and the emotional intensity is gone, though not every song is bad"
