Their hooks and harmonies made them central pillars of pop in the '70s and '80s
Thanks to its emotional complexities, Fleetwood Mac's music only grows richer with familiarity. A central pillar of pop songcraft in the '70s and '80s, they honed a singular sound with their elegant hooks, folksy intimacy and L.A. harmonies soaring like lonely eagles above the Pacific. The brutally honest “Go Your Own Way” chronicles the dissolution of Lindsey Buckingham's relationship with Stevie Nicks, while the darkly prismatic “Rhiannon” refracts the latter's haunted psyche. The Mac's songs are far more than catchy; they are windows into their makers' souls.
