Music Review: Fleetwood Mac - Mystery To Me

Fleetwood Mac may have been a troubled band in 1973, but they managed to produce Penguin and a second album in that year, entitled Mystery To Me. Bob Weston contributed to the album but was not a full-time member, so some of his contributions may have been recorded before his departure. His career in the band came to an abrupt end when he had an affair with Mick Fleetwood’s wife.
WTF?!? "not a full-time member"?? That's it...this guy obviously knows ABSOLUTELY ZERO about Fleetwood Mac. His articles are total bull****.

F***!!!! "Hypnotized" was a PRIME EXAMPLE of the "Fleetwood Mac sound". This author is a prime example of the need for legal euthanasia.

Her vocal on “Just Crazy Love” is almost as good, as it is McVie at her wistful best.
"Decades"?? REALLY? So, from 1973-1977 constitutes "decades"?? Was this author in-bred or what?

Somebody associated with the legal department of Fleetwood Mac should issue a "cease & desist" order to this guy making him stop this nonsense. The guy is a public nusance.
