Fleetwood Mac: Tusk (Warner Brothers)
Nick Kent, NME, 20 October 1979
ALMOST EVERYONE, barring the inevitable elitist bores blinkered by their own super-hipness, seemed to have a soft spot for Fleetwood Mac's Rumours. In late '77, Rolling Stone even ran an absurd piece attempting to work out the whys and wherefores for the album's astounding success, only to waste several thousand words of piffle concluding that it was, in the words of Warners' Derek Taylor, "simply a very, very good two-sided pop record".
Total word count of piece: 1063
