My mom would put this album on in the car when she'd drive me and my brother places. it's around 8-9 years late, 18 years old, and i still catch myself listening to this every now and then. would give 6 stars
Stevie Nicks has the voice, of a angel. A voice to fall in love with. If you don’t like Fleetwood Mac you don’t like music. I so wish we had this type of music today, most new music, should have never went to a recording studio. I’ll always listen to the old music, it has a backbone
I’ve usually listened to music online (Spotify, Amazon Music, SoundCloud) or by very crude pirating (recording songs on the radio), but when I finally decided to really buy something, I decided to get what I think is quite possibly one of the best albums ever. It brings back memories for me too, I remember listening to Fleetwood Mac when we would go to vacation in Michigan. I’m in high school now, going to college very soon and these songs really bring me comfort not just memories of “happier times,” but also a really nice easy listening experience, I think of riding to the convenient store at 10pm with my Grandpa, uncle and sister and hearing this on the radio in our old car. It’s still one of my favorites. So essentially this album means a lot to me, so perhaps I may be a bit biased when I say this album is simply wonderful.
Just unearthed the original vinyl from our collection and am beginning 2018 being blown away again by this album. So timeless and tight all the way through. Thanks again to all of you, Fleetwood Mac!
Inspired by destructive break-ups and 70’s drugs, Rumours is an icon of music mastery that never was equaled. The songs stand each clearly on their own, yet are meant to be played in succession. I’d bet my life’s savings that each of the 3 songwriters do not claim a Rumours’ song as their favorite. The struggle of making the album comes across in each and every song and result in a powerfully emotional, if not beautifully bitter, album that will touch you through memories of your own. Not to be duplicated again by the band, enjoy the journey that is “Rumours”.
Fleetwood Mac is my all time favorite band. They are no doubt one of the greatest bands of all time. They created so many masterpieces. Rumours is the best one. It's one of the best albums of all time. People still buy it to this day, 40 years later. This legendary album will go on forever.
This is easily the best Fleetwood Mac album, and one of the greatest rock albums of all time. All of the songs on this album feel so real, simply because they are, with these songs coming from the hearts of the writers. I sing along to almost every single one of these songs, and I would definitely recommend it.
Anyone growing up in the late 70s and 80s who listened to music had this album. Fleetwood Mac had the sound and the gift of writing catchy but meaningful songs. There's not a bad song on this album. In this day and age, it would be nice if there was another band with the cohesive sound and style of the likes of Fleetwood Mac and Doobie Brothers; thankfully such music is only an iPhone away.
We all know we like the songs I listened to them since "oh well " peter green days. Enjoy the songs but once you know them listen carefully and you will hear such an amazing arrangement such perfect in time meshing, especially sara oh daddy gol dust woman many more. Half way thru sara there is this sustained tension overlapping layers it just hangs there then it releases and shifts into next gear with this sizzle from mike's drum kit like a wave breaking out of the bridge into next verse so well worked out and smooth
Nobody expected this re-boot of "Fleetwood Mac" to work! They were a hard rocking blues band! However, This album shook up music in the 70's! Every song is a hit! A "Once in a Lifetime" Album! Just with "Dreams, Don't Stop & Gold Dust Woman" Alone? Your money is well spent, the rest is gravy! If you're young? I know you'll like this cd! It's not dated! It's "POP/Rock" Music at it's best! It sounds as good today, as it did back in 1978! Forget The Year? Listen To It? For It's Great Musical Quality & "Style"!
Won this album from a radio show on my 16th b'day in 1977. Wore that vinyl out. Honestly, best gift EVER!! Each song brings back wonderful memories from that time in my life and, I too, am grateful to this amazing group of artists.
Back when vinyl was the format of choice I would usually track one or both sides of a record each time I chose to listen to a record. After tracking the record a few times I would develop a “sonic” memory of the songs and the order they are tracked in. Years later buying the digital version of the album that “sonic” memory from 1977 comes rushing back and my brain excites with the knowledge of what song is to play next on the record. “Rumors” means 1977 which means high school senior year. There was good and bad at that time of my life but music was the glue that held everything together. Don’t hesitate to buy this record (with all of the tracks) if you are missing any part of it. When the music police come to visit you, not owning this record could mean bad mo-jo for you!
Lindsey Buckingham's magnum opus...this is truly a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, and still stands alone in its genre. Their amazing live albums and other covers continue the legend of this greatness. Thanks 'Mac and please keep your art flowing.
I don't usually write reviews. Like, ever. But I am obsessed with this album and band. I grew up listening to this, and always loved it, but only recently I have fallen truly in love. The emotional trauma and work that must have gone into this album as they were all divorcing and breaking up produced some of the most emotionally-charged music I've ever heard. The lyrics and songwriting is mystical, meaningful, and beautiful. Stevie Nick's throaty, strong, sexy voice is possibly the best thing I've ever heard. Lindsey Buckingham is so talented with the guitar. And of course, much love for Christine McVie/ Perfect, Mick Fleetwood, and John McVie. Thank you all so much for making this music. On a side note, I am a teen and no, we do not all listen to terrible pop music.
I had Rumors on 8-track in my 1968 Camaro! That's dating me but I wore that thing out and the speakers in my car!! I have it on CD and my iPhone now. I saw them in 1976 and they are still one of the best rock bands of all time!
The rare album where the drama behind the scenes translated into genius on the record. This one pulsates with raw emotion start to finish. A microcasm of a relationship beginning to end (but not in order) ,Such is Life #HAF
