At least 4 million people know this album much better than I do. Nevertheless, over the next few posts, I shall try to set out my take on the various tracks on the LP.
It should be remembered that this stuff was not completely novel. In essence, what we have is brilliantly exexuted and produced, sophisticated pop songs with a female lead vocal. In the five transitional albums described above, there have been a number of songs where Christine McVie has done most of the singing, which I called “harbingers” of what was to come here; as indeed they were.
