On February 4th 1977, after a year of recording through hedonism, scandal and relationship break-ups the British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac released their eleventh studio album, Rumours. Although troubled with tension and setbacks the second time round combination of Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, John and Christine McVie, together with the production talents of Ken Caillat and Richard Dashut had created the band’s ultimate masterpiece. This 35th Anniversary Edition reissue of 2004.

Admittedly, apart from knowing that they penned 'THAT Formula 1 racing tune' ('The Chain's' outro) I had very little knowledge about Fleetwood Mac and their music, listening to this album for the first time in its entirety gave me many 'oh, so it's them that wrote this song!?' moments. The story of the band during this tumultuous period is well documented, but for anyone who doesn't know - they were all basically in relationships with other band members and all those romances were turning very sour...so they wrote songs about it and each other - often turning nasty (read the lyrics!), which ended up with this fantastic album!
'Second Hand News,' 'Dreams,' 'Go Your Own Way,' and so on basically reads like a Greatest Hits set list and you've no doubt heard many times on the radio. Musically, melody reigns supreme here, that being said the use of guitars is excellent, whilst never really drawing attention away from the vocals, your ears will tell they really know what they're doing.
If I had to put 'Rumours' in any genre it would basically be folk rock with many pop and country influences.
One thing that amazed me about this album is how quickly it seems to end! Despite clocking in at a fairly standard and reasonable 40 minutes - it flies by, I must be having fun! It's a great chill out album whilst also being a great album on the road as well.
No complaints at all, the production is great without being too artificial, the cover art is very unique and the lyric books contain all the lyrics, all bases covered.
1. Second Hand News (Buckingham) - Opening track with a country theme that seems to appear in a few of the songs on this album. Excellent song filled with pain, despite the upbeat rhythm.
2. Dreams* (Nicks) - Excellent, gentle song by Stevie Nicks with haunting vocals looking back on the relationship she had with Lindsey Buckingham.
3. Never Going Back Again (Buckingham) - Another country-esque song by Lindsey that takes, for me, a while to warm up. But when it gets going it's great!
4. Don't Stop* (C.McVie) - The Fleetwood Mac song everybody knows! A feel good song by the queen of the blues.
5. Go Your Own Way* (Buckingham) - Another very famous FM song and a complete juxtapose to Dreams, which was a warm review of the break up between Buckingham and Nicks, this song is actually very bitter. Still great though!
6. Songbird* (C.McVie) - One word - beautiful.
7. The Chain* (Buckingham, Fleetwood, Nicks, J.McVie, C.McVie) - If you're a driver and you don't turn the volume up when this song is on, you're doing it wrong.
8. You Make Loving Fun* (C.McVie) - Another great feel good song, Christine McVie's forte. Listening to it, however, I can't help but think she's kind of rubbing John McVie's nose in it as this was probably written around the time they broke up.
9. I Don't Wanna Know* (Nicks) - Another great song by Stevie Nicks and my favourite from this album.Read more ›
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...
