This record is very underrated. Not as commercial as the mega platinum Rumours but sometimes beauty is in a hidden gem. This is the disc which has Gypsy on it. Whereas, the aforementioned song is not bad by any means, I would have to rate it as the weakest number on here. Christine McVie and Lindsay Buckingham contribute most of the artistic gems on here such as Love In Store, Oh Diane, Eyes Of The World, and Wish You Were Here. Maybe not their best but certainly a winner to my ears.

The party was pretty much over for Fleetwood Mac by 1982; the blockbuster pop classicsFleetwood MacandRumorswere mid-1970s memories, 1979'sTuskhad been a grand experiment but a commercial bust, and Stevie Nicks had already launched a solo career. Still, that didn't mean Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, and Christine McVie couldn't continue to write engaging, appealing pop in their sleep.Miragehas a handful of high points any Mac fan would appreciate, from Buckingham's soulful "Book of Love" to Nicks's twirl-inducing "Gypsy" to McVie's catchy "Love in Store." Overall, the Mac's magic touch seems usurped by a band merely going through the motions--but those motions still resulted in a few worthwhile moments.--Peter Blackstock
