One of the premiere albums from my growing up period of the 1970's. Never has such acrimony produced such a top selling album. This goes to show you that music written from the heart will always have a place in the world of rock n roll. The individual who rates this a one star has a limited perspective of music. I am not giving this a five star album because the songs are too structured and slightly over played by classic rock radio stations. However, the arrangements are on the money therefore making this a worthy addition to anyone's collection

With the pop sense of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks now leading the band, Fleetwood Mac moved completely away from blues and created this homage to love, Southern California-style. Each songwriter makes his or her presence known: Nicks for her dreamy, mystical reveries ("Dreams," "Gold Dust Woman:); Christine McVie for her ultra-catchy slogans ("Don't Stop"); and Buckingham for his deceptively simple pop songs ("Second Hand News," "Go Your Own Way"). "The Chain," written collectively, is the Mac at their most dramatic. But it's the ensemble playing, the elastic rhythms, and lush harmonies that transform the material into classic FM fare.--Rob O'Connor
