Easy forgetable album, already forgotten by the world and most of the fans (in too short time period)...sory folks (specialy Neil and Liam), but thats how it is...

I don’t agree with this. It is a unique album that has been released with virtually no promotion or tour, just as all focus is turning to Neil in Fleetwood Mac. That doesn’t make it forgettable. The timing for it is just very unfortunate. 

I personally think it is one of Neil’s more memorable albums because it is different (like The Finn album was when that came out). But like a lot of Neil’s recent work, I completely get that it just won’t resonate with all fans and could even alienate some. I can respect that, but think it is a stretch to say it has been forgotten by most of the fans. 

Great to see that there are few fans who actualy like Lightsleeper, but it says nothing about its value... album didnt get almost any attention outside fan base, with this album wont be any new fans (not only for non promotion reasons), there are almost no critic praises above average, and finaly, there is no actual attention here...if you compare it to released CH discs few years ago, or Intriguer, it is just drop in water.., and last but not least, and most important to me, there is no single memorable melody on that album, no interesting twists, turns and hooks...boring Neil with songs which in time of CH would be on C side or teared apart by Mitchel Froom (even didnt remember their names so must look for  song titles): Hiding Places, We know what it means, than songs in which artists obviously enjoy much more than audience like Where s my room and Meet me in the air, songs which potential stucked in the lack of inspiration or lousy nailing like Listen and Anger plays a Part... what we have good here is Liam in pretty good shape, but honestly with much less music potential and talent than Neil or worlds A league...sory to them, sory to fans, but thats just how it is...

Sorry, we will have to just agree to disagree. How you feel about an album is how you feel, but it is not "just how it is". It is personal taste and preference. Music will always be very subjective.

 

I wont go any further with quotes, its pointless. It is personal but it also can be objective to some point. I know that there will always be some who will say that One Nil is best album Neil ever did, I respect that and his own taste, but its just not universaly acclaim thing. Same with Lightsleeper.. you can even hate Intriguer, but Intriguer definitely made much more attention not only here, but in world generaly...when you talk about critics, with Lightsleeper you have few more than five reviews from influencive media, on Intriguer were almost three times more..plus five times more from less known media..Lightspleeper didnt spawn any attention not only cause Neil joined Fleetwod Mac, but also album didnt interested anyone except fan base, and within us, there are only few who still talks about it, only two months after relesead.

Also, on five last albums, almost every song had its own thread here months after released- where is that now? You honestly think its only for FM sake, so you have to jump on my every criticising this album??? Actually fans listen it every day, enjoy it, anual lists of best albums of the year just wait to put Lightsleeper on it, there are hundred of thousands views of singles on youtube, and everything support your theory that Lightsleeper is actualy great remarkable album? Yeah, wright...
