Oh and already have tickets to see the ancient Manfred Mann with the legendary
Paul Jones...(who has a painting in the attic)

Go to see Travis In August
Catch Rick Wakeman on tour.

Last several albums?
There's been exactly one Fleetwood Mac studio album with Lindsey since the hugely successful Tango in the Night.

Silver Girl and Miranda are my least favorite tracks on the album. Yet they are sonically beautiful and full of wondrous insights:

Silver Girl:
Sometimes she was just an actress
But you'll never really know
A shadow moves across her face
You cannot see her soul
Unless she lets you
See her soul

So glad I'm not the only one who feels that way. And I completely agree about When I See You Again- so bad. The only saving grace about that song is Lindsey's beautiful vocals near the end. Only Over You is a stinker, although I admit I can tolerate more than the others already mentioned.

"Uninspired turd lyrics" is probably my favorite new phrase now LOL!

That's not an album....
It's an EP with only 4 songs lol that got recorded in like, one week and released with practically no promotion. It didn't even have a cover photo lol. Stevie only offered one old demo that, as she wanted, was done almost the exact same way.
The only Lindsey song I didn't like from that was Miss Fantasy, the other two were just whatever.

Not sure I understand their premise.

They need to up their game if they want to sell this "new band"

Don't forget about the Sirius XM FM channel. Although limited run, for now, seems to be quite popular. I mean at least it is, from what I see posted on these boards. I wonder just how much this kind of station promotes FM, and more importantly the upcoming tour. ???

This post is just pathetic. The former abusing and the anger issues did not stop the band from continuing to work with said saint for nearly 40 years. So that argument is actually just some awkward attempt to give the current band credibility when there is none to find anywhere. Also blaming Lindsey Buckingham for the lack of album sales - when he actually was the sole creative force that made the albums happen in the first place - is pouring venom on a former band member, so the pot is calling the cattle black.

Your reference to Stevie killing her babies, I think. Or did you mean something else when you referred to "the stork?" If you want to bring up abortion in this thread, as it was brought up in another thread, that's your choice but is it really necessary? I mean, I'm all for a discussion on it if you really want to talk about it, but why not just start a thread called "Stevie murdered her babies" instead of bringing it up at random?

Travis’ THE MAN WHO is the greatest album this century not by Morrissey. They’ve not gotten close since tho. But I still take a listen just in case

It's not necessarily a bad song, I'm just not a fan of how he made his voice sound. In general I don't really like those vocal filters he's done on himself a lot in recent years. They sounded really cool on his albums in the 80s but now it just makes it sound a bit much. I get that he's gotten older and he never really had the strongest voice to begin with but I still think it sounds better more natural. I liked his songs from the This is 40 soundtrack a lot for that reason. And on the BuckVie album, save for one or two songs, he also toned it down with the voice filters.
