The new lineup that Fleetwood Mac successfully unveiled with their eponymous 1975 album became even more successful with the multi-platinum Rumours, which was the band's most celebrated album and one of the best-selling albums of all time. To be sure, this was a very different-sounding Fleetwood Mac than the blues-rock outfit of the late '60s-- and this edition of the band generally wasn't well received by rock critics, who tend to be critical of all things commercial. But as commercial and slick as Rumours is, the music has a lot of heart, and never comes across as insincere. From Christine McVie's optimistic "Don't Stop" (which President Bill Clinton used as his campaign theme song in 1992) to Lindsey Buckingham's remorseful "Go Your Own Way," Rumours is conistently memorable. In fact, the folk-ish "Gold Dust Woman" (covered by Courtney Love and Hole in 1996) and the melancholy hit "Dreams" made it quite clear just how much depth and substance Stevie Nicks was capable of.
