You're cute.
I was actually analyzing, you really should read up on projecting. I am pretty cute, at least you got one thing right today.

Two completely different bands that just happened to have the same rhythm section. And ya, both really great. The Bob Welch version of FM was also pretty good too.

2 different markets. The addition of McVie/Buckingham/Nicks brought them into a more marketable category with a softer more radio friendly sound, appealing to the other half of the world audience, which would be the female population. Your reasoning that the former is better is simply because you're genetically programmed to think along those lines since you're (I'm guessing) male.

Put those two songs in a women only survey, and a majority of the percentage will favor the Nicks tune, whereas the outcome would be the opposite for an all male survey.

Another thing to remember is that Fleetwood Mac wasn't the only band taming down a harder edged sound to be more accessible to a mass market in the second half of the 70s. Back then it seemed like everyone was doing it. The Doobie Brothers, Supertramp, Steve Miller, Peter Frampton, and others tailored their music for the then booming and lucrative AOR FM radio format.

Meh. I dig them both pretty hard. But I went and listened to some of their earlier albums, like the self titled and Then Play On, and while they're cool, I don't see them as anything other bands haven't done better. Rumours-era Mac is far superior.

It was a generalization, and you don't count.

Given the fact that Rumours is one of the greatest albums ever recorded I concur, it's only real rivals from that era are albums from the likes of Steely Dan, Supertramp and the Eagles etc.

I've said it before but I'll say it again, you really are a closet AOR fan, just hurry up and get out of the closet.
