Fleetwood Mac: Extended Play


Sorry boys and girls, but this is a major let down for Mac fans. We've waited years for a comeback from them, and it just isn't up to par. Perhaps I am speaking as only the "Rumours" and "Tusk" loving contingent, but this isn't the Fleetwood Mac that I love. I can see a song or two making its way on the radio enough to have a hit single, but I expected much more, especially from a four song EP they could have knocked out in a month. The production is clean, sure, and the first track has a catchy melody, but this sounds like a band past their prime, not much depth to the lyrics and the songs don't go anywhere. After the first chorus of each track, skip to the next. It's that kind of EP. If this is a teaser for a full length to come, I won't be holding my breath. Till then, I'll just keep listening to the classics.
