Viewed by many as a landmark album and critically acclaimed, I have always fallen short with this one. Yes there are some classic pop songs here and yes the band seem to be airing much of their dirty linen in public, but there is something missing. Maybe that something is a heart. Maybe the internal wranglings were having an effect and rather than enhance this album tend to detract, Songbird is a beautiful Christine McVie song and many of the others have made their way into rock/pop folklore but there is something missing from the overall feel of the album.
