I don't have to say they are brilliant because they just are. After fifty or so years in the music business and all that they have been through as a band too they just own it.. I love Fleetwood Mac, as me and my brother would say, it's 'proper music'. There are so many bands the younger generation need to educate themselves with and this is one of them.
So when Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie released their duet album in June of this year I wondered what it would be like and wow I'm not disappointed. It has a huge Fleetwood Mac feel and that's probably because it has input from Mick Fleetwood and John McVie too. I just love it, I love both of their voices and their music makes me so chilled and relaxed, the lyrics to their songs are ones you can just relate to which makes their work so meaningful and special.
The singles taken from the album are 'In My World', 'Red Sun', 'Feel About You' and 'Lay Down for Free' are great and if you are an avid Radio 2 listener you will have heard them played a lot especially 'Feel About You' with it's pop, 60's reggae influence, one that definitely stays in your head. I woke up with it going around my head this morning, it's a feel good tune, one that makes you smile and happy. Another track that I think makes an impact (struggling as they all do) is 'Game of Pretend', beautiful lyrics and a bit of a smoochy which for those who don't know is a song referred to as a slow dance, lovey dovey song. So if you're in love, grab your partner and have a dance to this one.
Great these aged rockers eh? They keep on going, still knocking out great classic songs and they look good too. If you are a Fleetwood Mac fan you will love this but even if you aren't I do think it will appeal to all really. Try it, have a listen and see what you think. Let me know by leaving a comment, I'd be interested to hear what you think too.
Thank you for reading, do come back tomorrow for Teapot Tuesday, I'll be here!
Take care for now.........
Today is about anything to do with my love of music, whether it be reviews of concerts and gigs or shouting out my favourite tunes and my experiences at Rock Choir!
