Product Description

Amazon.ca

A liner portrait of the big Mac, then coming off the commercial bonanza of Rumours, shows them looking anxiously at guitarist, singer, songwriter, and de facto auteur Lindsey Buckingham, a moment given weight by the sprawling ambitions behind this 1979 double album. Buckingham's superb sense of pop craft had catapulted the once blues-based rockers into multiplatinum ubiquity, and he responded not with a safe return to form but with an invitation for his songwriting partners to chase their respective muses. Comparisons to the Beatles' White Album abounded and remain apt: Stevie Nicks twirls dreamily through extended variations on her crystal visions, Christine McVie turns in a reliably fine set of sunny pop-rock cruisers and tender ballads, and Mick Fleetwood and John McVie sustain their reputation as one of rock's most powerful yet deft rhythm sections. Buckingham provides the wild cards, in largely self-recorded plunges into his own skittish psyche, culminating in the massive title song, beefed up by the University of Southern California's marching band, but more cannily in dreamy music-box exercises ("That's All for Everyone") and sudden bursts of gonzo, fuzz-toned rock ("That's Enough for Me"). Better than its detractors thought upon release, Tusk was a brave platinum "failure" that actually charts where subsequent Mac and Buckingham projects would go. --Sam Sutherland

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated June 19 2013
Format:Audio CD
Fleetwood Mac was under great pressure to release another "Rumours", one of popular musics all-time great albums. It was an impossible task; the Eagles went through a similar issue in trying to follow up their classic "Hotel California", and also had fallen short with the reasonably popular, but disjointed, "The Long Run". "Tusk" was considered a failure at the time, and a lot of the music was confusing to fans looking for more of the Fleetwood Mac from their previous two albums.

Going back to my original thoughts on the album, I was a bit confused as well. The very personal nature of "Rumours" seemed to be gone, and the sounds were disjointed. It was the sound of a band in the first stages of fracture, and it was hard to swallow, because what had made "Rumours" so special was that the breakups of the band members' personal relationships unified their musical resolve. Almost three years had passed since "Rumours", and you could literally hear the three songwriters going in their own directions, and I swear I can hear remorse in the rhythm section, who could only watch as the band started its slow descent.

As time has gone by, though, I cherish "Tusk". To me, what makes it special is that the three songwriters were indeed their own people - in some ways, it's three solo albums intermingled. Buckingham was the adventurous one for sure, with first single "Tusk", "The Ledge", "What Makes You Think You're The One" and "Not That Funny" leading the way. Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie were somewhat less adventurous than Buckingham, but you can see their styles evolving. McVie was a pop princess, as evidenced from her past hits, but she put herself into Buckingham's production style, notably on "Think About Me".

3.0 out of 5 stars Inferior Remastering of a Superior Album July 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge Mac fan, and this is my favourite Mac album. Furthermore, "Sara" (along with "Landslide") is my favourite Mac song, so I was always frustrated by the fact that the original CD had an edited version. So naturally I was very excited when I bought this CD, with the full-length version of "Sara".
However, I was soon dispappointed by the fact that the sound quality of this remaster - like the other two Mac remasters - was actually inferior to the original! I have to say that in the case of this CD (unlike the other two), the original sounded so good that it was hard to imagine how it could be better. But I wasn't expecting it to sound worse!
I guess I have to be happy with the full-length version of "Sara" on "The Chain" box set (the version of "Silver Springs" from the box set also sounds vastly superior to the one on the remastered "Rumours"). What's it going to take to have definitive remasters of these classic albums? Mobile Fidelity, DCC, are you listening?

3.0 out of 5 stars Similar to old one. May 22 2013
By Seeker
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
This release is not 180g vinyl. It sounds very similar to original 70's copy. Mine had a couple of annoying pops that went on too long so I returned it.

Format:Audio CD
Definitely my favourite album(s) by Fleetwood Mac. I have the vinyl from 79, not the CDs, but to me this is one I would take to a desert island. Odd that people think of it as a failure when it was first released. With 2M sales when it was first released and now double that, I don't think I would see it as a failure. If it is to be compared to Rumours alone, I guess it as well as most albums ever produced by anyone - were failures. I found a vinyl copy at a garage sale and have been a listener ever since. Can't say the same for the Rumours or Fleetwood Mac albums - though I have them as well. Won't likely buy the cd but only because it's not my preferred format.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Finally Realize What a Great Album Tusk Is!! May 18 2004
By JE
Format:Audio CD
I love this CD. I never appreciated Tuske when it came out, but now after getting this CD, I am truly in love with it. It actually has such a fresh sound, and I also love the bonus disk.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating chapter in the band's history Dec 14 2009
By Louis TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Tusk", the twenty-song highly-anticipated follow-up to Fleetwood Mac's cult album "Rumours", more than baffled everyone's expectations when it was released thirty years ago. While music historians have endlessly outlined the fact that the band went for a cutting-edge and experimental approach, most notably on Lindsey Buckingham's songs, this description is overly reductive because the appeal of this album didn't simply lie in Buckingham's out-of-the-box tactics. In fact, as was the case on previous Fleetwood Mac albums, the complex interaction between the songs of the band's three singer-songwriter line-up (Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks) is essentially what made "Tusk" such a compelling album. Glued together by the Mac's formidable rhythm section (Mick Fleetwood and John McVie), these three artists were always able to turn Fleetwood Mac's albums into something that sounded like a play featuring three fascinating characters, sharing their inner thoughts on the turmoils of romance.

On "Tusk", Buckingham's unpredictable songs were mostly rhythmic numbers that were heavily influenced by bands such as Talking Heads; the title track, "Not that funny", "I know I'm not wrong" and "The ledge" were as different from Fleetwood Mac's usual songs as they could get, while more melodic numbers such as "Walk a thin line", "Save me a place" and "That's all for everyone" provided a soothing counter-effect. Still, for all the talk regarding the creative risks taken by Buckingham on his songs, one must admit that Christine McVie also provided songs that were just as different from what she usually wrote.
