The Second Time 1
Hard Feelings -1
Stand on the Rock -6

Some observations:
The Second Time really divided fans.

When the Sun Goes Down beat out Do You Know- huh.

In the Back of My Mind rated higher than any of Stevie's songs.

Christine McVie clearly was the unsung hero of this album. Perhaps the album might have done better if they had dropped Hard Feelings or Stand on the Rock and included another McVie song.
I see Christine more than the hero of this band in 1990. I see her as the mature leader of the band. Both Stevie and Mick were zonked out while the world was still getting to know Billy and Rick. She was the rock for the band at this time.
But then again...has Christine ever recorded a bad song? IMHO no.

Still I believe.....BACKSTABBING AND BETRAYAL will show us how
