I set my DVR, but don’t know if I will be able to convince myself to watch it. After hearing Lightsleeper, I am more confused than ever as to why Neil has joined this band. I don’t know if I can bear to watch Neil perform two classic Fleetwood Mac hits as a hired hand.

I think it would be a wonderful chance to see Neil happily being led for a change. Mixing his creativity with others and a blending of different voices may surprise. I’ll certainly watch it if we get it here in Australia. Just because I am more curious. Stevie’s voice has never been one I’m enamoured with but Christine’s music yes. Interesting times folks 🤗

Here are my grades of The Finnwood Mac performance on The Ellen Show “The Chain” Neil A (Neil nailed the vocal, looked confident) Mike A (Mike nailed the guitar solo) Stevie C (seemed off-key to me and made an odd vocal gesture mid-way through the song) Mick A (Mick nailed the drums and seemed energized) John B (played the bassline well but hard to see behind Neil) Christine B (solid performance) “Gypsy” Neil B (not much for Neil to do in this Stevie song) Stevie D (her vocal was really...

Well, it was better than I expected to be honest. The Chain wasn't a song I thought would work very well, but I enjoyed it. I think TV studios are often poor for sound quality for live music, but it sounded OK to me. I've not watched Gypsy, but I don't care much for the song anyway. It's a bit much to dismiss anyone who didn't like it as whiners and moaners. My wife (no loyalty) thought it was terrible and out of tune, and my sister (big Mac, esp Stevie, and Crowded House fan) thought it was...

I think if you'd been seeing Fleetwood Mac's twitter mentions the last few months, you might know what I meant. People are acting so entitled, as if they're owed something and FM has betrayed them personally, knives out long before there was even anything to criticize. Almost as if they don't realize, if they're unhappy with it, they can just do something else. Instead they've chosen to spend months spewing skepticism and bile toward anything FM-related. It's like, alright people, go ahead...

For a first appearance, this was very solid. As far as lack of energy, Neil is taking Lindsey's place and is absolutely going to be a bit reserved to start especially with strong personalities like Stevie and Mick in the band. I would expect Neil to be more assertive and energetic as time goes on and everyone gets more comfortable. He actually looked fairly assertive for a first appearance. Stevie doesn't provide much energy neither does Christine or John so it's up to Mick and Neil to bring...

I had an idea today that could work well for the new Fleetwood Mac. The band would pick seven or more pre-Lindsey songs that would fit nicely with the new lineup. For example, Oh Well, Dust, Come A Little Bit Closer, Why, For Your Love, Green Manalishi, Hypnotized, Man of The World, Spare Me A Little of Your Love, and The Way I Feel are some possibilities. Then have the new lineup record new versions of these songs. Perhaps someone like Mitchell Froom could produce. In addition, have Neil,...

I think there are a number of posts here about the sound quality of performances in TV studios. I'm sure that plays a part, though I doubt 'Joe Public' takes that into consideration. In arenas, as part of a full show, I am sure the sound and overall vibe will be very different. I've not been looking on twitter for reactions, but it may be that the reactions are as much about the rest of the band as they are Neil being a sub for LB. The negativity surrounding Stevie seems pretty heavy. I...

I think the dynamics and energy felt a bit off. LB's intense energy is certainly missing and it almost felt like Neil was singing in Lindsey's range/style a little bit, trying to bring the same edge to the song. I think as they go along he will relax and just be Neil Finn and bring his own unique energy. He has so much experience and talent and he'll find the right approach and balance and just be himself, using that to create a new chemistry that's different but just as valuable and...

Completely agree. They can simply record their practice sessions and hire a producer/engineer to put the songs into album form. In a perfect world, they would record it online like Neil did for Out of Silence.

Ignorant? Seriously? I am well aware of Fleetwood Mac’s existence before Lindsey Buckingham, but I am not a blues fan so don’t listen to those albums. I was warmer towards Bob Welch and actually really loved the Heroes Are Hard to Find album. But I am one who says it’s not Fleetwood Mac (that I would care to listen to) without Lindsey Buckingham. Ignorant? Seriously? Wow.

Saying LB was the heart of Fleetwood Mac is lan interesting take on things! Not one shared with the vast majority. You don't consider Paul McCartney a lead singer or core member? Seriously, how can you say that? If Mccartney can tour from 1989 to 2018 dong 50% Beatles material, without core elements of the band - Lennon, Harrison and Starr...then certainly Fleetwood Mac can do it without LB. If the band are up for it , it's their choice and right.

Re: New SOLO Album

From what I understand, Neil plans to next record an album with Tim. Neil has said that they have an album's worth of songs already written. That assumes he doesn't record anything with Fleetwood Mac which I wouldn't rule out. My guess is that a new Crowded House record is unfortunately several years away.

I share the love for Intriguer (except for ‘Even If’ which I still don’t understand why on earth they would choose to write/record and release on an album...) and really wish Neil’s next move would see him going back home to CH. Personally what I crave the most is new music from Crowded House. A 3rd Finn Brothers record is a close second.

Except that Neil has specifically said he wouldn't do this. He's said in the past (post Intriguer) that he wouldn't want to bring Crowded House back without a really good reason, and that he never wants them to be touring simply on their name as a "legacy act" or words to that effect. Of course, that is exactly what Fleetwood Mac is doing and Neil was willingly a part of that. But that was a longstanding situation he was invited into, and I'm skeptical that he's changed his mind about...

Thank you all for the welcome I like the Lightning Seeds Dizzy Heights album a lot, it was nice to hear more of a band sound than the synths and drum machines on Jollification. It's interesting because I see Neil and Ian as opposite sides of the same coin, the Lightning Seeds stuff is in general pretty immediate and obviously 'hooky' whereas I find Neils work to be sonically deeper and not as immediate but longer term more gratifying if that makes sense! But they are both incredibly talented...

If I am being honest, without sounding entitled or "expert" over the matter, but after seeing Setlist.com's coverage of the tour, I get the impression that Neil is going to be performing 'Don't Dream It's Over' and 'I Got You" for the entire tour. If Neil is happy with this, fine - truly. But the Neil I have come to know avoided fixed set lists or obvious staple songs (unless it's a reunion, farewell gig or something of that nature).

Secretly i think i agree. But we know he’s earned the right to do this. These r the stadium tours he earned 30 years ago and never got the chance to do.

I like Neil Fenn. Loved New Wave Spilt Enz and Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream it’s Over” got me through the deaths of two loved ones of mine years after it was a hit. But most true Fleetwood Mac Fans aren’t thinking about Neil and Tom Pettys guitarist. They’re thinking about how ****ty the band treated Lindsey Buckingham.

Well that's one way to look at events from the Lindsey point of view. Of course, there's always two sides to a story. The band side has been written about at length in terms of how Lindsey treated Stevie and the other band members over the years. Lindsey may have mellowed with age but his past behavior, if close to what's been documented, could easily justify firing him. Moreover, Fleetwood Mac has a long history of lead figures before Lindsey. In fact, Fleetwood Mac has more studio albums...

Stevie Nicks has denied being abused by Lindsey Buckingham and said then he only went after her after some ridiculous behavior in the 1980s where she attacked him first. So I agree, there are two sides to the story. Both are extremely eccentric personalities and presences - the whole group s for a mainstream elite classic rock band. Since Buckingham Nicks joined, its essentially been the 5 key players over the past 40 years. When Buckingham left on his own in accord in the late 80s, he was...

Have you read the book "Storms" by Carol Ann Harris? Most who read that book see Lindsey differently. A lot of victims of abuse later deny the abuse for various reasons so it's not surprising that Stevie denies it now. Christine has confirmed what happened and it's pretty bad stuff. Stevie clearly has a lot of resentment towards Lindsey and I'm sure most of it comes from the way he treated her for all those years. As far as the legal case, the band has a very strong case. Lindsey didn't have...

I'm glad others are liking "Lightsleeper". Personally, I was looking for an album with a lot more energy -- energy that I thought would be sparked by Liam -- and was rather surprised to get a(nother) slow- to mid-tempo album that is heavy on piano and atmosphere. But unlike "Out Of Silence", which has several songs I liked from the get-go, and melodies that I could recall after just a couple of listens, I find that the chorus of 'Back To Life' and snatches of 'Where's My Room' are the only...

Another review including mick’s intro to dont dream: Immediately before Finn sang “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” Fleetwood said this: “Many years ago I heard this beautiful song and, for me, it opened many doors in my heart, so this all eventually led to this lovely gentleman sharing the stage with us in Fleetwood Mac, so make him really welcome as he sings this most beautiful song.” https://www.tulsaworld.com/sce...48-ee3e8e6f92c6.html

Thanks for finding that, @Kiwi . This is a bit of an unfair comment not knowing how this sits in the overall flow of the show, but I'm sad they went with such a bare bones approach. This isn't "Neil Finn playing his song with Fleetwood Mac", it's "Neil Finn playing his song with the other 5 piece band who stand in the shadows behind Fleetwood Mac". Christine didn't even play the organ. On the other hand, Stevie's verse was a very nice touch, and Neil did a fine job. I assume I Got You was a...

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.

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 think Light Sleeper has way more interesting twists and turns than Intriguer (my least favourite of all Neil's work), and the hooks and melodies are subtle - which for me makes them more interesting. I think Light Sleeper is completely inspired. On the other hand I found Intriguer to be a mess,...
