Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

Been down one time. Been down two times...mmmmmm - never going back again. Let me make this totally clear, I'm not a huge Fleetwood Mac guy. I honestly respect everything they do though. It seems like they've been very instrumental in influencing many artists I love today. Their songs are typically pretty catchy, and lyrically very solid. This album dropped in 1977 and is a SICK 19x platinum. And even if you think you've never heard a Fleetwood song before, listen to this. I can promise that you'll hear at least 4 songs that you've heard before. It actually even surprised me how much I knew off this record. Love it. These guys formed in 1967 London. The drummers name is Mick Fleetwood - and that's where the name comes from. He's the only original member still in the band. Stevie Nicks is a fairly well known member of the band at this point. If you've never heard her flat out sing - she's got a great set of pipes. Very unique voice too. I can't think of anyone else that sounds quite like her. She started with the band just a couple years before this album dropped. Prior to her joining, only one album (out of 10) had gone even 1x platinum. This is BY FAR their best selling album, but 4 others after Nicks joined have gone at least 2x platinum. Maybe that's coincidence, maybe she's just that good. Who knows. But I really enjoy this. I don't think I own it, but I'm going to pick it up. That's my testimonial. I'm going to spend real money on it. Listen to it today!

  1. WOW, 5 out of 5! Awesome.

    I'm sure I've heard many Fleetwood Mac songs but my all time favorite is 'Silver Spring' (live version too). I first heard that song maybe 11 years ago. My mom had it on tape for the car. Ohh my goodness, your bringing back so many memories.

    Man they are a good group :)

  2. It's not my first 5 or anything! Jeez! I've even given out 5+'s!

    Great album. I'll have to look up that track again, it's not ringing a bell.

    And thanks janis. I love comments!
