I feel a similar way about how it is on a song like WISYA. As awful as the song is and the lyrics are awful and the melody is awful, the music to it is just beautiful imo so I can't hate the song and I still listen to it voluntarily.

Yes, how did Brushes turn into that?

The only time a crowd would really like that stuff is if you had a fantastic voice and were hitting and holding some spectacular notes. That is not what LB is doing.

Following the massive "Rumours", I think every Mac album that featured the Rumours-era five had one songwriter that was off their game. McVie's usual pop hook sharpness was off on "Tusk" (although "Brown Eyes" and "Think About Me" were both very good); Buckingham's contributions on "Mirage" suffered from an over-caution due to the "Tusk" backlash"; and here on "Tango", Nicks's drug dependence started to affect her normally excellent songwriting.

"Tango" (and later, "Behind the Mask") have the weakest Nicks contributions of her Mac output. It's a real shame, because had Nicks contributed songs to "Tango" of equal quality to her Fleetwood Mac/Rumours/Tusk/Mirage songs, "Tango" could have rivaled "Rumours" in eventual impact if not sales. Buckingham and McVie are both at the top of their songwriting game on the album.
