Neil is a mercurial beast - which is what makes him so good! Taste is, of course - subjective ---Fleetwood Mac is one of those bands that always made me reach for the "off" button!
I've gone back to re-listen to a lot of their hits, and my impression is that Fleetwood Ma can often create an incredible chorus -- Go Your Own Way, Don't Stop, etc. -- but the verses are often barely anything of interest, lyrically or musically. Just feels like marking time until you get back to the fantastic chorus.
Neil has always been more balanced, with his verses usually being just as catchy and meaningful as the chorus.
I hope this goes well for him, and as a band of people singing and playing I'm sure FM are excellent, and this current incarnation should certainly uphold that. It's just that after hearing them on the radio my whole life, then finally trying to dig a little deeper, I'm not quite seeing what the hype is with this band.
