Fleetwood Mac - Mirage RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum! Click here to see this CD at Amazon.com!

By Peter Blackstock

The party was pretty much over for Fleetwood Mac by 1982; the blockbuster pop classics Fleetwood Mac and Rumors were mid-1970s memories, 1979's Tusk had been a grand experiment but a commercial bust, and Stevie Nicks had already launched a solo career. Still, that didn't mean Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, and Christine McVie couldn't continue to write engaging, appealing pop in their sleep. Mirage has a handful of high points any Mac fan would appreciate, from Buckingham's soulful "Book of Love" to Nicks's twirl-inducing "Gypsy" to McVie's catchy "Love in Store." Overall, the Mac's magic touch seems usurped by a band merely going through the motions--but those motions still resulted in a few worthwhile moments.

"I disagree strongly with the review. Mirage is, in my opinion, Fleetwood Mac's finest moment (apart from Man of the World). The production is fantastic, the songs stand the test of time and the album as whole exudes a wonderful confidence.

Rumours pales in comparison."

"Mirage was in my opinion one of the best Fleetwood Mac albums during the Lindsey and Stevie era. Not so much for what was on it,but the quality of sound. Lindsey defined himself as a guitarist on this album. The solos on Gypsy, Book Of Love, Wish You Were Here and Hold Me are blisteringly awesome. Mick Fleetwood likewise became a force as a drummer on this album. The production of Mirage was truly innovative, starting with Lindsey's vocal layering technique on Love In Store. Mirage is awesome."
