One of those bands that I know through osmosis rather than through a deliberate attempt to seek their music out. Maybe should change that. abstain/5

A 5 although I know a fraction of their output really.

Love the fact Peter Green (I think?) founder member named the band after the bassist and drummer he wanted in it and do eventually they both ended up in it, even though he had to leave.

A band I’ve never understood the fuss about.
They get a 2 for the chain.

Rumours is a front to back classic.

My dad was a massive fan of the early blues stuff, so I have fond memories of hearing that around the house as a kid.

The rest is very meh.

‘You should never listen to rumours’ my old grandmother used to say, because she hated fleetwood mac

(Tusk’s a brilliant album, and a tango in the night’s pretty good too)

Should take this to the TYWSTR thread, but I only realised last week that this was a Fleetwood Mac song

Gonna go against my comments and scores in other threads and give them a 4 despite 90% of their stuff being utter shite.

Hate them, either boring bloooze rock or dreadful coke rubbish. And I don’t care which band members were sleeping with each other when any particular album was recorded, which seems to be the main thing people like to talk about when it comes to FM.

Might get a bonus point for inspiring Iain Banks’ Espedair Street, but probably not.

Just staring in disbelief at Beastie Boys being fourth.

Rumours is incredible 3

Yeah, should be number 1 you’re right. This is clearly

Dont really care for the peter green era or any of their status quo plodders like “dont stop” but the good stuff is soooo gooood. Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie :raised_hands: giving them a 4 overall for the few songs I cant stand.

Also, self-titled is better than rumours. Don’t @ me

Simultaneously happy to see Beastie Boys high up and irked to see them so far ahead of any other rapper
not that into Fleetwood Mac but have a few songs i really like, was obsessed with Go Your Own Way for a bit

You’re probably right.

Rumours was their twelve album? That’s mad.

Have forced myself to listen to the famous albums all the way through. Ia that enough to vote?

Struggled to comprehend just how plodding and dull the music is. Even the songs that have great pop moments like Rhiannon I find dull after about a minute.

1 from me if I vote.
