F all you haters!
This is good! It's good to have Christine back in the band (though she's absent here). 'Sad Angel' sound like a Lindsey solo song and that's the EP highlight but this is still pretty great stuff. Hope they will do one more album before calling it quit for good. Yes they have done better, way better but c'mon! This is only an 4 song EP, not a full album! Perhaps it's all they had at the time! Lighten up!
Love Fleetwood Mac!
I fell in love with all of these songs when I heard them. Fleetwood Mac is ageless and all their music is still fantastic. Stevie said that if this EP was to do well, they'll think about doing another album. Well Stevie, I can assure you that MANY people ( including myself of course ) are hoping and looking forward to what more you guys have to offer! Live on and Play on Fleetwood Mac xo

Had this for a couple of years now, but just getting around to reviewing. Love the "new" songs, very personal, and very Fleetwood Mac! I think the mix is just right and hope they put some more out really soon.
Crying in the night
"Sad Angel" is a great uptempo track that almost sounds like it could have come straight from one of their 80s albums. I really like "Without You" because it is the first song Lindsey and Stevie have sang together completely since "I Don't Want To Know" on Rumours, and it is from their Buckingham Nicks years. Great that they finally recorded it since they seem hesistant to release any material from it. The other two songs sound too much like Lindsey solo and are not my favorite. Needs more Stevie
Christine's Absence isn't the problem
keep in mind folks, Fleetwood Mac's last full length album, "Say You Will" (2003) was done without Christine McVie as she retired from the band in 2002. and that album was brilliant. a little too long, but brilliant. what this EP suffers from is simply bad songs, lackluster performances and horrible engineering and mixing. Christine is back now and a new album is on the way for 2015. I just hope they stick to the old formula, sharp, concise songs, a shorter track list (10-12...beyond that it just gets overwrought with what should be left off anyway) and bring on better production and mixing teams!
IMissfantasy-Fleetwood Mac E/P
This doesn’t stir me. I’ve never read an “R & R” before, but I see a lot of ‘if only..’, 'Christine-come back’ and ‘leave the knobs alone’.
Times, and artists, and tastes evolve. But I’m blown away by the current crop of 2 and 3 note songs sung by belt-ers & breathy voiced teen-aged girls who don’t know a vibrato from a violin.
I’m goin’ back, Jack. Back to my stack.
Where I’ll get lost, Boss,
In the short-hair tingling, pulse-quickening,
That made FM Incredible-no-
INDELIBLE for me.
Can’t buy E/P. But it’s not technical. It’s not even musical. It’s all about what I was and, for better or worse, what I grew to be. Thanks, in part, to Fleetwood Mac. It’s what stirred my heart when it needed stirring.

I have seen them live several times over the last couple years and I have to say that they sound better than ever. I really think all the people who only like the old hits should take a listen to these songs. Sad Angel is great! Lindsey's guitar solo in this song is amazing! Also,Without You is another not to be missed.
These songs are chart toppers. They sound great together, "Sad Angel" is such a good song. Solid Mac.
I like it, but it just doesn't sound like them.
I love that they're back and made some new songs, but as others have said, it's a lot of Lindsey. I really like when Stevie has the lead vocal. It does not sound like them either, but that we can't help. It is inevitable that their voices change but their sound also changed. I think I could start to like it.

Fleetwood Mac in name only. This is L.B. solo. This sounds forced and very
lame. IMO when Christine left the band, the band died as well. Fleetwood Mac is
a brand name. Skip it.....
