One of the greatest and most respected pop albums of all time. Perfect playing, stirring rhythms and rich harmonies - a true Classic!
'Rumours' is without a doubt, one of the greatest and most respected pop albums of all time. It's exemplary songs are matched only by the intense and emotional feelings that come across in both the playing of the instruments, the stunning vocals, and also the skillfully penned lyrics.
Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks had recently joined and on this second album with the group, they lead Mac away from the blues, creating an emotional love album in the process. Stevie's songs are dreamy and mystical ("Dreams," "Gold Dust Woman); Christine McVie's have ultra-catchy melodies ("Don't Stop"); and the genius guitarist / vocalist Buckingham oversees all to create deceptively simple songs ("Second Hand News," "Go Your Own Way"). "The Chain," was written by the whole group and is Fleetwood Mac at their most impressive.
Originally released in 1977, 'Rumours' has sold in excess of 30 million albums. It won Album of the Year at the 20th annual Grammy Awards in 1978.
'Rumours' is a timeless album of perfect playing, stirring rhythms and rich harmonies.
