  • Tusk

    After the pop accessibility of Rumours - and with the money from its record shattering sales - Fleetwood Mac ventured back into the studio to create its most ambitious album to date in the double LP Tusk (1979). Costing over one million dollars to record, Lindsey Buckingham one-upped his idol Brian Wilson with his obsessiveness in the studio. While Rumours captured the turmoil of romantic relationships dissolving within the band, Tusk reflects its members' disassociation in the aftermath. It shifts erratically from Buckingham's manic, New Wave-influenced outbursts ("The Ledge," "That's Enough for Me") to Stevie Nicks' contrastingly ethereal songs ("Beautiful Child," "Sisters of the Moon") to Christine McVie's more tender ballads ("Never Make Me Cry") and sunny pop ("Honey Hi"). Despite its status as a decidedly weird and experimental album, Tusk produced three US hit singles in the USC Marching Band-led title track, "Think About Me," and Nicks' "Sara," featured here in its entirety as opposed to the 4:37 minute single version. Though uncredited, original guitarist Peter Green performs on McVie's track "Brown Eyes."
