The reviewers tell us what to buy, but the public actually part with the cash. Surely twenty-six million people cannot be wrong, as Peter Green’s Frankenstein became the prime example of AOR in the 70s. The inner strife and turmoil of the band is credited as having helped to make this many-headed beast into such a success. Christine sparred with John McVie and Stevie scrapped with Lindsay Buckingham. Mick Fleetwood held the emotional mess together with the same confident steadiness as he demonstrated in his drumming throughout the record. Stevie Nicks’ fiery vocals on ‘Go Your Own Way’ complemented Christine McVie’s beautifully understated ‘You Make Loving Fun’. The people have chosen, but don’t ignore other important albums in their catalogue.
Tracks: Second Hand News; Dreams; Never Going Back Again; Don’t Stop; Go Your Own Way; Songbird; The Chain; You Make Loving Fun; I Don’t Want To Know; Oh Daddy; Gold Dust Woman....
