The reviewers tell us what to buy, but the public actually part with the cash. Surely 26 million people cannot be wrong, as original Mac guitarist Peter Green's creation became the prime example of AOR long after his departure. The inner strife and turmoil of the band is credited as having helped to make this many-headed beast into such a success. Keyboardist Christine McVie sparred with husband/bassist John, and singer Stevie Nicks scrapped with boyfriend/guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. Drummer Mick Fleetwood held the emotional mess together with confident steadiness as demonstrated in his confident, inventive playing throughout the record. Nicks' fiery vocals on "Go Your Own Way" complemented McVie's beautifully understated style on tunes like "You Make Loving Fun," exemplifying their successful fire-ice dichotomy.

Q (3/00, p.126) - Included in Q Magazine's "Best Relationship Albums Of All Time" - "...tells the soap opera of 2 splits: John and Christine McVie, and Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks...all of whom played lyrical relationship tennis..."
Uncut (4/04, p.112) - 5 stars out of 5 - "RUMOURS streamlined everything into elemental despair. The record is the pop equivalent of Kurosawa's RASHOMON - the same tragedy witnessed from three different perspectives."
