Missed this album when it was first released, but recently reignited interest in Fleetwood Mac, so I bought it. Not disappointed… ALL of the tracks are brilliant, and I'm currently playing the album to death.
Seriously really good!

I never listened to this album properly until now and I was missing out! Some of Fleetwood Mac's best work on here!
There are some truly wonderful tracks on this album, such as MIRANDA, THROW DOWN, SAY YOU WILL, PEACEKEEPER, RUNNING THROUGH THE GARDEN, BLEED TO LOVE HER and EVERYBODY FINDS OUT but I just don't particularly care for the rest.
One of the finest albums I own
I love this album. I played it so much the CD is worn out. Almost all tracks on this album are excellent. It has a true Fleetwood Mac flavour - especially for those who enjoyed their hits from the Eighties. Yet, despite the classic feel, the songs are fresh, varied, unusual and definitely addictive. I would thoroughly recommend this album to anyone. Don't cherry-pick tracks, just get the whole thing with its moods and changes and especially the songs that grow and grow on you.
Don't often agree with AMG review...
...but this time they've got it pretty much right. I often thought when I listened to this when it first came out that I could put together an absolutely classic album from this tracklist. So here, IMHO, it is:
Say You Will
Steal Your Heart Away
Bleed to Love Her
Everybody Finds Out
Not that there's much wrong with the other tracks; it's just that these are a bit special. In particular the run of Silver Girl, Steal Your Heart Away and Bleed to Love Her is just great pop music.
Silver Girl and the Faerie
I L-O-V-E this album. While reviewers state the obvious, that this is 2 solo albums joined together to make one group effort (wasn't the white album made that way?), there are so many superb songs on here, who cares!! "Peacekeeper" and "Say You Will" would have been enormous chart hits had they been on "Tango". "Come" is as good as anything Buckingham did on "Tusk" and the suggestion that the c.d should have been cut in half to make a listenable album is as silly as to suggest Prince dump a few songs from "S.O.T.T" so it could be as listenable as Purple Rain. This album works fine folks, just as it is. Listen to "Thrown Down" , "Silver Girl" and "Steal Your Heart Away" and marvel at the melodies of two old friends saying Hi again after all these years. If Lindsey Buckingham is supposed to be away with the faeries...i'll catch the next bus to his planet.
The Mac is back!
Finally, the long wait is over and we have an album that truly is the return of Fleetwood Mac. Yes, we miss the funky pop of Christine McVie but the mystical beauty of Nicks and some quite fantastic rifts by Buckingahm more than make up for it.
My personal favourites are Buckingham's distorted 'Red Rover' and rocking 'Come'.
