I really struggled with this one. While the fidelity is good and at times great, the material and the demo quality of some of the songs leaves me cold. Most of these songs sound like rough cuts of sappy leftovers from Rumours. The signature band sound rarely appears. Stevie's songs are ok, but Lindsay's and especially Christine's are dull in composition and presentation....IMHO
Surround design works nicely for me. This is not Fleetwood Mac's finest moment and I am not sure that this will get played much...save for Sara of course which is sublime. I was thinking 7 but bumped to 8 for the surround presentation.

I don't wanna be a cleaning lady!

One of my highest ranking discs - lossy or not. Epic album, perfect surround mix - on my set up it sounds fantastic, very dynamic with a very big soundstage - a perfect 10!!

Must restrain myself for not playing it to much..

Just want to add my 2 cents, I would love to have this, and Mirage, but all i want is the surround mix. I don't even have record player anymore. I just can't pay those prices for a bunch of stuff i can't use. I am writing in hope thar someone in charge of these releases will read this. I am hoping they will release these as a regular deluxe set at a reasonable price.

First off, I would rather them concentrate on releasing the surround mix in a lossless format (like Blu-Ray or DVD-A/V) rather than the current lossy DVD-V format, but besides that, it's obvious based on the current release configurations for the reissues of both "Tusk" and "Mirage" that they would rather concentrate on releasing most of the CDs in the smaller deluxe configuration because that's still what sells.
But I do agree that bundling vinyl with CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Ray discs is a terrible strategy. Vinyl should always be separate from optical discs! :)

We can thank Lindsey Buckingham for some of the raw nature of this album--okay, a lot of it, probably--but to the band's credit, they made no attempt to replicate RUMOURS. That bothered a lot of fans--and the execs at Warner Bros.--but it endeared me to the band for good. In a way it remains a 'White Album" kind of work from a band at its commercial peak. But rather than cater to anyone, they went into a weird cycle of music, drugs, sex and generally craziness that resulted in, like that Beatles 1968 mighty mess, some genuine classics.

The title track alone was wild and weird enough, but was a hit anyway; Stevie's "Sara" would become one of her signature songs (for many years the CD edition used a shorter 45 edit); and, all else aside, is there a quieter, more gentle and perfect Christine song and performance than "Never Make Me Cry"? God, she cut to the bone.

But the album was fueled by the manic work of Buckingham, whose nine tracks were generally stark, minimal, and really fun, if not hi-fi.

The sonic range and mixes of this album were intentionally variable, and so is this 5.1 An '8' here, just too much good stuff to knock it down further.

I do not have a turntable. I do not play records. I just got the Fleetwood Mac Super Deluxe Tusk with the 2 remastered LP's.

I'm looking for a sale or trade. private message me if you are interested.
Just curious whether you got a sale on this- at a fair price. I'm considering the same path of purchase, and apologies up-front if I've overlooked in error an answer to this query recorded within this thread.

Thanx

I found a copy new for a fairly decent price, 60.00. Still a bit more than i usually care to pay, my price limit is usually around 50.00 including shipping. But i covinced myself this is worth a little more because it is a double album. Really happy with this purchase. The music has always been 9 for me, and the surround mix is quite good, a 9. Overall i rated it a 9, should be 9.5, almost a 10. Really glad to have this.
