About this item
Released in 1977 and one of the biggest selling albums ever, this still has the easy West Coast groove of their previous effort but lyrically it's full of betrayal, heartache, despair and confusion. And it was all true: inter-band relationships were crumbling, yet out of the darkness came this beautiful record. Each songwriter makes his or her presence known: Nicks for her dreamy, mystical reveries ("Dreams", "Gold Dust Woman:); Christine McVie for her ultra-catchy slogans ("Don't Stop", "You Make Loving Fun"); and Buckingham for his deceptively simple pop songs ("Second Hand News", "Go Your Own Way"). "The Chain", written collectively, is the Mac at their most dramatic. Please don't be put off by the scale of this thing: this is from an era where even the mainstream was for love over money. This LP was massive simply because it was brilliant. Every home should have a copy.
