I'm surprised to see you defending Fleetwood Mac. You'll be raving about Billy Joel next.

One of the best albums ever recorded, so much vitality and soul, I agree.

This is gibberish.

It was the late 70s and disco was popular. The only reason why that album got any hype.
Can you really see those 1970s disco queens doing a John Travolta to Fleetwood Mac? At least make an effort and say that it was popular, because Steely Dan, Supertramp and the Eagles etc are what people wanted to hear on the radio at this time and Fleetwood Mac changed their sound to accommodate that audience.

Quote:
Also, nothing Fleetwood Mac recorded was good after the girls joined the band. Absolute radio pop garbage.
You do realise that one of these girls, was a band member long before the other joined?

This must be the most monotonous statement in rock, I think people fail to realise that Led Zeppelin were just one of many bands that did this.

You should've at least had the decency to give them to charity, as somebody with some musical knowledge would've enjoyed them.

Did you really think a band puts out 3 albums in under 2 years was all original?
A lack of music history here, it was common practice in the 1970s and 1980s for bands to put out multiple albums in a short time period, largely due to pressure from the record labels.

Now this is where I make you look stupid.

Name one band that released 3 studio albums in 1 year that went over 8x, 12x and 18x platinum?

Know why you can't name any?
Because that band DOESN'T EXIST.

The Rolling Stones released their first five albums between April 1964 and December 1965.

The point I'm trying to make is Rumors sucked when it was released. It sucked in the 80s. It sucked in the 90s. And still sucks today. I'm sure I could hire a drummer to record in 4/4 time the entire album and find a pregnant goat to sing through a cardioid microphone but I won't do that because it would be plagiarism.

If you don't like the album, that's fine. If you think it's overrated, then that's fine. But to call it one of the worst albums ever recorded, along with whatever happens to be 98 Degrees' worst album, is just nonsense. At the very most it's a bad album by the standards of a good band.

Well Led Zep (if that's who you're referring to) didn't release 3 albums in one year either they released just two.

Led Zeppelin 1 Jan 69
Led Zeppelin 2 Oct 69
Led Zeppelin 3 Oct 70

Also You do realise that albums usually go multi-platinum over a long period of time?

Also this could just be called subjective rambling on your part, but in your case we''ll just call it good old fashioned trolling.
