I went with Rumours - the obvious; and Mirage, the underdog (compared to Tusk).

Can't wait for the respective polls of Lindsey and Christine. I suspect Lindsey will get similar results, but Christine's may be a surprise.

however spectacular SHN and GYOW are (and MM, ISA, and NGBA and not half bad either ), if you look at the body of work / overall creativity Lindsey was at his peak for Tusk and then again for SYW (well SYW peak was really in the late 90s).

and then again now, which started somewhere in 2010.

Still a good track even if it isn't the demo version. Won't bother saying why Tusk is my other choice as it has been covered by everyone else.
That pretty much sums up my choices and explanations too.

Well, now you won't have anything left to say when the poll starts.

Went for Rumours and Tusk as they are the only two Mac albums I've given a good proper listen. Dreams and Gold Dust Woman are my all-time favourite Mac/Stevie songs that mean a lot to me; they got me through a tough, emotionally draining period in my life, when an old "friend" of mine returned and started making me feel like crap because of the argument we had that ended our friendship and what I'd apparently said afterwards. The lyrics describe the situation in so many ways - wanting to end it (Dreams) and remembering constantly (GDW). Silver Springs makes me tear up every time I hear it, and Stevie's songs on Rumours as a whole are perfection.

The Tusk songs are simply fantastic - the amount of times I've had "Angel" and "Sara" on in a loop is ridiculous. "Sisters of the Moon" just gives me the shivers; I remember listening to the song on vinyl, through HD quality headphones ans almost crying due to the depth and power of the song. "Storms" and "Beautiful Child" are other teary-eyed ones. Ever since, Stevie is my favourite member and lyricist of FM. Lindsey is great, but I don't connect with his songs as well as Stevie's. I'm not too fussy on Chris's songs (don't shoot me I'm sorry!!); I've always found them to be gushy, although there are a few I really like (Everywhere, Warm Ways, You Make Loving Fun, Say You Love Me). I will confess that Songbird is my least favourite FM song. *takes cover from the flying tomatoes*

I'm not a particular Songbird fan. I like what the song represents and, for that reason, love to have it at the end of the concert. But I'm not sitting around listening to Songbird at home, that's for sure.

I feel the same. I don't hate the song or anything but I don't go out of my way to listen to it.

I love Songbird, but Christine's shining moment opens Tusk with the lush and stunning Over and Over.

Tusk got 64 votes and Rumours got 56 votes. I do find it interesting that as much as Rumours gets a somewhat negative reaction from the Ledge, it did outstandingly well in this poll. But Ledge consensus is that Stevie's best Fleetwood Mac work was on Rumours and Tusk.

I didn't plan to do corresponding polls, but apparently my polls/contest are infamous here on the Ledge so I will continue them for Lindsey, Christine and maybe even the Pre-Rumours gang, if anybody on that forum would be interested!

Christine was on 12 studio albums - 5 Pre-Rumours, 5 Rumours, and 2 Post-Rumours. I'll need to combine some albums.
