Album Review

Two years after the Lindsey Buckingham/Stevie Nicks/Christine McVie-less incarnation of Fleetwood Mac crashed and burned, their classic '70s lineup reunited for an MTV Unplugged session and an accompanying tour. Although it's likely that the reunion was for monetary purposes, it made creative sense as well — no members were as compelling solo as they were with the group. Despite this, the Unplugged-styled setting wasn't ideal for a reunion, since the group decided to devote nearly a quarter of The Dance to new material, inevitably resulting in unfair comparisons to their warhorses. Since there's so much new material, The Dance can't be a truly nostalgic experience either, because the new songs interrupt the flow. Not that they're bad — both Buckingham's gentle "Bleed to Love Her" and nervy "My Little Demon" are first-rate — but they aren't given the full-fledged production they deserve. Similarly, the older songs suffer from the slightly hollow unplugged production. All the hits are performed in nearly identical arrangements to the originals, with the exception of Buckingham's solo "Big Love" (an improvement on the original) and the addition of Tusk's marching band to "Don't Stop," which makes the differences all too apparent. Much is the same — McVie and Nicks sound terrific, and the band is tight and professional — but Buckingham has lost some of his range, which undercuts some of his songs. Still, that isn't enough to prevent The Dance from being an entertaining listen; it just isn't a substantial one.

Customer Reviews

I love this album....

I love this album and have been listening to it since I was little, and I still love it, classic really. Just recently I was reminded how much I love Fleetwood Mac, personally Lindsey Buckingham is my favourite. By this album, you will be singing along all through, and you really feel like you are at their concert.

Wow these people are amazing!

Wish i could have been there. Gotta say, I like the live versions nearly as much as originals! Especially Go Insane, I'm So Afraid, The Chain and Tusk!

Brilliant

This album is just beautiful. I listen to it all the time. The Dance is an awesome example of how amazing Fleetwood Mac really is. They are brilliant musicians. LOVE YOU STEVIE NICKS & LINDSAY BUCKINGHAM :)

While most bands undergo a number of changes over the course of their careers, few groups experienced such radical stylistic changes as Fleetwood Mac. Initially conceived as a hard-edged British blues combo in the late '60s, the band gradually evolved into a polished pop/rock act over the course of a decade. Throughout all of their incarnations, the only consistent members of Fleetwood Mac were drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie — the rhythm section that provided the band with its...
