Fleetwood Mac: Tusk

Simon Reynolds, Melody Maker, 4 March 1995

If anyone remembers Fleetwood Mac's Tusk at all, it's as the surprise flop sequel to 1977 Rumours. A soft rock masterpiece (gorgeous melodicism charged with the emotional carnage wreaked by the interband tangle of break ups and infidelities), Rumours was also an unprecedented blockbuster, selling a staggering 21 million copies worldwide.

Total word count of piece: 2167
