Product Description

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Let's set the scene: It's 1979. 2 years ago, Fleetwood Mac had released "Rumours." A riveting musical soap opera, it topped the charts for 31 weeks, sold 12 million copies at the time (19 million to date) and launched 4 MONSTER hit singles. The group (actually, it was probably more just Lindsey Buckingham) decided to do a complete 180. The result was "Tusk." This album probably had more hype surrounding it when it came out than any other album ever made at that point. It debuted strongly, but only peaked at #4. After this, it didn't last long, burning out at 2 million copies. What was going on?
One: 1979 was an infamously slow year for album sales.
Two: The double-album was priced at an expensive-for-the-time $16.
Three: A national radio station played the album in it's entirety, so anyone with a recorder could get it for free.
Four: The album was nothing like Rumours, and people "didn't get it."
While all of these probably had to do with it, the fourth reason is probably the most relevant in this case, which is a shame, because this album is better than "Rumours."
Lindsey Christine and Stevie push their boundaries on this album to excellent results. Sara is a gem, but I DO reccomend just downloading the original version. Christine still offers her pop-flavored music, but it has more depth here. Lindsey is just cracked out and it shows on his songs. But then, the songs are all good.
I have this album on vinyl and CD. I love the "sleeve within a sleeve within a sleeve" concept. The collages and conceptual photographs also make for interesting art. And what is with the dog?
Very few artists have the guts to follow a massive album with a totally non-commercial follow-up.

"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.

a wonderfully creative collection.
lots of cooky off the wall input from lyndsey buckingham.
my favourites here are "honey hi" - the more i hear this song, the more beautiful i realise it is.
"sara" never heard of editting a version on an album, this version doesn't quite do it justice.
"never forget" is another typically gorgeous pretty piece from christine.
"beautiful child" took me a long time before i could listen to this song without crying!
"storms" is another gorgeous song, very poignant & moving with great sensitivity.
"angel" one of my fave stevie songs, her voice sounds brilliant here, raspy & gritty, a real rock queen!
my fave is perhaps "sisters of the moon" tho the live version is the best! this is a real stevie nicks song, encompassing everything she stands for. this woman is amazing in that she has one of the strongest characters & images, encompassing art, imagination & creativity with sheer ballsiness in a tender, gentle package.

This album was made in the wake of it's predecessor, Rumours, selling a gazillion copies. So how do you follow that? Make something totally off the wall and different that people don't really "get" until 20 years later. Lindsey Buckingham drives the record, and some say his material is too dominant, but the error there is this: the total running time of his nine songs is shorter than the total running time of Stevie Nicks' FIVE songs! So her material actually takes up more space on the album. Don't get me wrong, I'm not criticizing her, some of her best work ever is found on this album (Sara, Beautiful Child, Storms). But clearly, it is Lindsey's vision that emerges over the project. Some of his best work is also on this oft-maligned project, including Tusk (listen to it with headphones), What Makes You Think You're The One (that's Lindsey on the piano), Not That Funny, and one of his all-time great songs (of which several demo versinos are found on Disc 2) I Know I'm Not Wrong. Lindsey plays with his voice more on this album, and he takes more of the production role, which results in a very frenetic, paranoid, but brilliant album. Christine McVie also has some gems: Think About Me and Never Forget. It's good to see FM playing several songs off of Tusk on their most recent leg of the Say You Will Tour, including I Know I'm Not Wrong, Beautiful Child, Sara and Tusk. Pick this one up, and Disc 2 provides a pretty interesting insight into the making of it, but probably not for the very casual fan.
