50 Favorite Albums: 37

Rumors by Fleetwood Mac is a pretty good album. So good, in fact, that the people behind the Grammy Awards believed that it deserved to be Album of the Year in 1977. But, while the title of that album is somewhat indicative of what we now know about the interpersonal relationships in Fleetwood Mac, there's another collection of music that was nominated that category and lost, but, really, it deserved to win (hell, it was even number thirty-seven on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums). Hotel California from Eagles. As you can imagine, their magnum opus, Hotel California, is the top track on this titular album, but there are also some other tracks that arise from an excellent arrangement of rock and easy listening, including, New Kid in Town and Life in the Fast Lane. All three songs I named play back to back. It's one of the all-time great trios.

  1. A good album for sure. I love Rumors, too, though. :)
