Guest co-host Jeff Young is effusive in his praise for Say You Will (says it's his favorite album after Rumours): "I got a lot to say about this underrated album in their catalog, in the Fleetwood Mac canon, which is Say You Will. And one cool thing is Lindsey did the whole album with the VG-8 Roland–it's like a guitar synthesizer–and the special pickups that he has in his Rick Turner guitar. So it has a very cool sound. He shreds a lot on that album. He gets really aggressive. There's a lot of guitar playing on this album. I think a lot of people miss this record."

I agree with the general sentiment of the above (though no, it's not my second favorite FM album). He later says (and I agree here too) that he rates Tango In The Night particularly high because it has its own distinctive flavor.

Anyway, for those who don't want to watch the thing I will later list the top 15 choices of the two hosts (they each make their own list), plus their honorable mentions. For now, however, I'm just linking to the episode so as not to spoil it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdbNnq2L32Q

Below I list my own top ten. Obviously (and admittedly) I am largely unfamiliar with much of their non-Buckingham catalog.

Well, I found it quite excruciating at times but I did sit through this. I like how they gave a lot of credit and recognition to Bob Welch and that period of the band, though its a shame they didn't include any CM songs from that period in their top 15. Disappointed with their criticisms of Tusk. The love for Say You will was a surprise, though I understand why they felt that way.
Overall, some interesting choices. So too, some really odd choices (top 15 FM songs covering all eras and you kick off with Dust My Broom???). Listening to this reminded me of what a great song Future Games is- its so mellow but you forget the last minute or so really rocks out and kicks a bit of butt.

Well, you just made me realize that I completely reversed the order of the respective Top 15 lists (probably because they list them in reverse order during the episode). Sorry about that. As to the length, I found their commentary of enough interest to justify it.

In any case, here are the accurate lists:

It's not so much the length- its their commentary I found a bit hard to bear. Nice guys but at times I found it a bit slow. I guess doing this sort of thing via Skype or whatever they were using doesn't make it easy. As this was Fleetwood Mac it was enough to keep my attention but I'm not sure how many other bands I could sit through this for.
Thanks for posting- nice to hear some praise for Bob Welch and Danny Kirwan.

Yes, Jeff especially was slow. And yes, being in the same room would probably have helped.
