Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time
Rumors
at # 25


Not only is Rumors easily the Best Album Fleetwood Mac ever did, I personally say this is the one of the Greatest Albums of All Time, right behind The Beatles' Abbey Road (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/music/the-beatles-discography/msg1294/#msg1294), KISS' Destroyer (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/music/kiss-(the-original-lineup)-discography/msg1585/#msg1585) and Van Halen's 1984 (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/music/van-halen-discography-(the-david-lee-roth-years)/msg2052/#msg2052) So obviously I disagree with where Rolling Stone Magazine places this on their 500 Greatest List. There may be plenty of other albums out there that are technically better than Rumors, but for me it's what the album means to me on a personal level. They say that music marks the time it was released and that listening to any of the songs can instantly take you back to where you first heard the music. Sights. Sounds. Smells. As big as KISS (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/music/kiss-(the-original-lineup)-discography/msg1575/#msg1575) influenced my upbringing as a kid, the only other album that even comes close and at times surpasses recalling where I was at the time is Rumors. I think it's easier for me to get back into that kid mode because with KISS I had every album and they all blurred into one over the years, but with Rumors it was just that album alone.

If there is one album that I'm against double dipping, it's this one. This album is so ingrained into my DNA that getting the 2-Disc Deluxe Edition would be too jarring with all the added content of outtakes and demo's. Part of me wants to check it out, but the sensibly side of me says to not mess with perfection. Rumors is basically a soundtrack to my childhood, along with KISS and a couple of other bands and messing with the playing order of the Deluxe Edition could in a way alter my perception of Rumors.

Every single song on Rumors is instant gold. There is no throwaway song to be found. I can hum and sing every song at the drop of a hat because they are so memorable. If you haven't gotten a copy yet, what the hell are you waiting for? Go pick it up now!

Fave Songs: All of 'em. But I do have to point out some of my all time favorite songs are in fact on this album: Never Going Back Again, Don't Stop, Go Your Own Way, Songbird and Gold Dust Woman. Sheesh. All on the same album!!!

FYI, my Top 10 Albums of All Time is constantly changing. There are days when Rumors is at the #1 spot and listening to it today, it's currently in that #1 spot. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/GleeClappingHands.gif)

If you have the opportunity to listen to the extended project, I would say give it a chance. It won't cure your spine and more than likely the additional tracks won't change your thoughts. The only extended album I've bought is the Peter Frampton's classic live. It doesn't have demo tracks. It has songs not included before. On the opposite end, I bought Kansas Masque album with the some extra tracks and demo's. Hated it. They were awful. The only thing I could think why the boys would allow this was for history and educational purposes. What they started off with and what they ended up with. I sold it because I didn't want to be playing the album and listen to that crap.

If I see it dirt cheap at one of the second-hand stores I buy from, I will probably get it. And then it will probably sit on the shelf for awhile before I'd pull the trigger and listen to it.

Christine McVie to tour with Fleetwood Mac (http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/27/showbiz/music/christine-mcvie-fleetwood-mac/)

F*CK YEAH!!!!!!!

Normally I would have put this in the Fleetwood Mac Live thread. But wouldn't you know it, we don't have one. What the f*ck Mac!!!! As for Christine, I am soooooooooo happy this is happening. Hopefully their tour stops in my town because I really want to go.

Same here. I'm glad to see Christine change her mind. She is sooooo intergal to the band.

I'd like to see them too. Never have. But I bet it would be massive.

As it stands now, there are only a handful of dates in North America. So the likelihood that they are going to hit San Diego is slim to none. Closes they will get will be in LA and I can imagine that the tickets will be too much for me to even begin to contemplate going anyway, which sucks.

So this tour is just to get out? No album in the works?

As of right now it's a Tour only. Haven't heard anything regarding a new album. Just give them time to write on the road and I'm sure there will be one in the future.
