With the release of Fleetwood Mac's second album in early 1977 comes a collection of songs about love - what it feels like at first blush, how it can sustain you, and, especially, the pain of losing the feeling.
The emotional turbulence is easy to detect but the thrill of Rumours is in how the group channeled anguish into joyous pop. The sheer craftsmanship on display is a wonder to behold - the impossibly catchy hook of "Don't Stop," the half-shouted chorus of "The Chain" that invites participation, the spooky, myth-shrouded exploration of loneliness in "Dreams." Music fans all over the world took notice - Rumours far exceeded even the most optimistic expectations, becoming not just a hit album but a landmark of 20th-century pop.
