Greatest Hits
Fleetwood Mac
Review:
Greatest Hits is a fine overview of Fleetwood Mac’s hit-making years, containing the bulk of the group’s Top 40 hits of the late ‘70s and ‘80s…Minor hits like ‘Think About Me,’ ‘Love in Store,’ and ‘Seven Wonders’ are missing, making room for the new songs As Long as You Follow…and No Questions Asked, but overall, Greatest Hits is an excellent choice for casual listeners” (Erlewine).
