My Music Monday

Week five of that Facebook meme on albums that influenced your formative years.  As Fleetwood Mac albums go, I'd venture to say that most would pick Rumours - and with good reason. I picked Tusk for good reasons too.

I would say is was misjudged back in 1979, just because it wasn't like Rumours. It took a few decades to gain critical and artistic acceptance.  I'm still not sure it has fan acceptance. To be fair, only Lindsey Buckingham's contributions are totally different. While Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks don't deviate too too much, some of their songs take liberties that wouldn't happen before or on a single disk.

I'll pull Christine McVie's "Think About Me" for the selection, though I think Buckingham has equal, if not more of the, lead vocals here. It is the closest this disk gets to pop, radio friendly music.
