iTunes Review

Fleetwood Mac decided to follow up the career-defining, best-selling Rumours with an album that would not compromise their integrity or seem like a quick rehash of their proven FM-radio-friendly formula. Tusk is not Rumours, Pt. II. It's an expansive, 20-track collection that allows each of the three songwriters — Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks — to stretch their musical vocabulary with the very best sonics that money could buy. Buckingham took on much of the production himself, recording at home and in the personally modified Village Recorder studio in West Los Angeles, until he fashioned an album both quirky and accessible, as much a part of the '70s rock elite establishment as informed by the funkier experiments of the emerging punk and new wave. Though individual tracks do stand out — McVie's "Over & Over," "Never Make Me Cry," "Sara," "Storms," and "Beautiful Child," "Buckingham's "Walk a Thin Line" and "Tusk" — the album is best experienced as a long, flowing whole, moods emerging, harmonies shifting, and odd sound experiments percolating underneath the smooth professional sheen.

Customer Reviews

First review!?!?!

I can't believe I'm the first one to write a review for such a great album! Tusk is a Fleetwood Mac masterpiece and in my opinion, just as good as Rumours. Comparing the two is quite difficult and unnecessary due to the distinctly different sound that Tusk contains. The songwriting trio of Buckingham, Nicks and McVie keeps the album interesting due to their own personalities and songwriting styles. The way one style flows into the next works perfectly for this album and despite a more fractured feeling and sounding LP, there are still more than a few instances of brilliant collaboration.
Highlights are many, but here a few: the entire album 1-side 1 (Over & Over, The Ledge, Think About Me, Save Me a Place, Sara), Not That Funny, Sisters of the Moon, Brown Eyes, I Know I'm Not Wrong, Beautiful Child, Walk a Thin Line, Tusk.

Beautiful Schizophrenia

I was a bit disappointed when this LP first came out and I still wish somebody had reigned in Buckingham's experimentation (just a notch) and cut the song list down to a fine-tuned, ultra-brilliant single LP. Christine McVie's contribution seemed to be waning as Stevie Nicks star continued to rise. Having said that, it's still a fine album with each member shining brightly at one point or another, so... 5 stars for the band and it's a good album but it just sounds like it's 2 weeks shy of completion. Also, I completely agree with the hundreds of complaints I've encountered throughout iTunes in recent months: iTunes really should stop editing tracks (Sara, on this one), ESPECIALLY on music from this era. It's like clipping 30 minutes out of Casablanca when you do that and it's super irritating to those of us who remember the original tracks. ONE MORE THING: the volume is too low and 2 dimensional >> somebody needs to rework the Fleetwood Mac catalog (add Bare Trees, Future Games, Mystery to Me, Heroes are Hard to Find, etc...) and bring the volume up to par with other recent remasters >> flesh out the dynamics and give them the 3D punch these classic songs deserve.

Fleetwood Mac's Best Album

Tusk is the best album by Fleetwood Mac. It may not be the most popular, or the best album for a brand new fan to listen to. But Tusk gets better and better with every listen!

Stevie's 5 songs are just perfection. The most solid group of songs of hers from any Mac album. Beautiful Child is the best.

The direction that this album goes in is all thanks to Lindsey. Some of his songs are a bit out there, but they make the album fun. The title track is his best track on here. He also has some really fun songs on here: I Know I'm Not Wrong, The Ledge & Not That Funny.

Christine has an interesting group of songs on the album. Over & Over is one of the most beautiful songs she has ever done. Her songs can tend to get overshadowed by the strong presense of her band mates, but that does not mean her songs are bad. They just add to the balance of what makes this such a great band, and the best album this great band has ever made.

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...
