Default Say You Will - the last great Stevie Nicks Fleetwood Mac song?



Is Say You Will the last ever Stevie Nicks' Fleetwood Mac song, or single?

Is it a fitting farewell to her recording career?

I heard she wrote a song for Fleetwood Mac called "My Mother's Rings". What ever happened to that?

Discuss.

Say You Will is the last full studio album from the Mac so you could say this about every song on the album. Everyone Finds Out is the best song on the album IMHO

That crown belongs to Thrown Down. Or for Lindsey's best, Come.

Technically maybe the last song she recorded with FM, but of course much much older than that ...

IMO, the quintessential Fleetwood Mac song on the record is Destiny Rules. I do love Say You Will too though especially the Chris Lord Alge mix. He should have done all of her songs on that record.

Say You Will is such a good and substantial record. It's occasionally uneven (I think the middle of it sinks in quality) but overall, I'm wowed by it.

Stevie really burned there. Illume, Throw Down, Destiny Rules, and especially Everybody Finds Out are my favorites--and they're among her best songs on any Mac record. But the title song is also so catchy. Even the songs I don't like (Silver Girl, Running Through Her Garden, and the last one) are still good. I'm disappointed with the production and performance of Smile at You, but that's only because we've heard better demos of it from earlier years.

I agree with everything you said. I don't know why the album Say You Will gets so much flack. The songs are great and Lindsey's production is flawless.

Since it came out Iíve thought it was too mechanical and heavy handed. There was no warmth to the production. It was glossy but not easy to listen to. The vocals from Stevie were not terrible but were so naked and exposed. They needed more reverb and mixed down a little. Itís like she swallowed the microphone and can hear every nodual and booger in her nose hole. She sounds best with old microphones standing further away. Also, LB let her SIT to record vocals NEVER sit to get your best vocal. Never!

Anyhow. Yes. SYW needed something. Or a few somethings. Too long. Not enough Christine. Too much guitar. Too glossy.

I've never thought about these things per se but I think you're very right. Especially about it being too mechanical & heavy handed. And feeling cold. It was so close to being great but fell just a little short. But I really think it is just too long and meanders, too coldly (& loudly!)
