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.

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".Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.

Well, it's Tusk and it's expanded and it's in a fantastic box. How could I not give it five stars?Published 3 days ago by Daniel Blais
Wasn't what I expected at all not happy. Also, I was extremely disappointed I had to pay for shipping, and to Canada. Will not order from Amazon.ca again if that is the policy. Read morePublished 28 days ago by D.C.
Superb album, no need to say anything more about the music. However, i want to comment on the remaster. The 2015 remaster CD is stunning, wipes all previous editions off the map. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
This record seems a little unbalanced to me. The upper end is a little in your face on some tracks and the bottom end is in and out depending on what track you are listening to. Read morePublished on May 22 2013 by The Seeker
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. Read morePublished on March 17 2013 by billythekid
