Tsk, tsk, Cobbler. It's obviously Bruce Campbell.

I love the smell of a fresh queef in the morning.

Listening to Tusk for the third or fourth time, and I definitely love the hell out of this album, but I'm still convinced that the second half is way better than the first. And I also think this might be Lindsey's best work.

And Stevie's, as well. Sara/Storms/Sisters of the Moon are all just heartwrenching and fragile and oh wow she was on a winning streak there. Lindsey was cracked out to hell, and it was for the best. Even the more average songs sound great thanks to their visceral, aggressive production. There's a lot of fractured, honest beauty in those tracks too.

McVie's contributions don't blow or anything, and they're a nice buffer for the emotional tug-of-war happening between Stevie and Lindsey, but she didn't deserve 6 of them. I have no complaints about the length of the album, but Christine opening and closing the album is ludicrous to me, so IMO it could benefit from re-sequencing.

IMO, Think About Me and Brown Eyes are very strong tracks and among my favorites on the album.

But I agree she shouldn't have had the first and last spots and about the sequencing. It's odd because she has two songs on the first half of the album, and then four on the second half.

The Beatoffs usually did a much better job of spacing out that kind of thing (e.g. The White Album).

to me the only problem with Tusk is that - while the production does sort of bring all of it together - Lindey's, Stevie's and Christine's songs are too distinctively different to mesh together
somehow more than on Rumours, Tango or the 'debut' album (Mirage sort of has the same problem)

so many great songs on Tusk though
if it didn't suffer from post Rumours expectations it would be regarded as one of the best albums of that era

I completely disagree, I feel like Tusk is incredibly cohesive and Rumors is a jumbled mess, but that's just me.

Yeah, Ash, it's just you.

We're talking about one of the most acclaimed and best-selling albums EVAR.

I didn't say I don't like the album? I just said it doesn't feel cohesive.

I will admit that the phrase "Jumbled Mess" was hell of exaggeration, but I don't think it's exactly a cohesive record

Rumors is incredibly cohesive...lyrically. There is such a desperate, weary vibe on that record, and it very often finds its way into the lyrics. Musically, it isn't their most cohesive, but it isn't a jumbled mess either. It sounds a little better than a bunch of singles stitched together should sound, but it isn't Kid A or Sea Change or anything.

Tusk could be cohesive-ish, but the sequencing is just so bad that it's difficult to imagine in that way. I'll take a crack at sequencing it some day, but for now I'll just bag on it with no proposed solutions.

Rumours is one of the most cohesive and consistent albums ever, both lyrically and musically. It's just a brilliant record.

So is Tusk, but for different reasons. That record is a jumbled mess, and is supposed to be. It comes across jarring at times, and I'm sure resequencing it would be an interesting project, but I love it the way it is.
