I can't get into Stevie Nicks' voice
My wife can't either. Her voice can be a bit goat-ish, but it works for me. I think she's great.
I finally listened to it all the way through a couple years ago. I have bad musical knowledge gaps in the pantheon of classic albums, so I educate myself in them every once in a while.
Also, to be fair, it might not be her voice as much as the songs she's singing. I don't honestly think there's a single Fleetwood Mac song that I've ever liked.
Do you even like music?
I feel like black betty eventually evoloved into spank rock's backyard betty
I mean, GOOD music ... Yeah
I like “Dreams” but most other post Peter Green Fleetwood Mac songs are just sort of whatever for me. Not great and not bad. I don’t know, please don’t try to covince me otherwise. I grew up listening to the classic rock station, so a I know them, and never saught out any of their albums and pass all the time when I see them bin digging.
On a completely different note, Grateful Dead’s “Terrapin Station” is my number 1 song of 1977. Incredible lyrics and songwriting on that one.
Most of the lists from years before I was born (87) had a limited selection for me. Not because I didn't know any of the artists, but because most of the albums I have not heard in their entirety. Not the case with '77. I start these lists by opening the wiki page for releases in a given year, then open tabs for each album that's a contender, double check Spotify, and then narrow down. I could no longer see what the tab names were after going through this list! I was hoping Buzzcocks would be on here, but they only had an EP this year. Anyways, I usually have something that most people don't, but this list is likely similar to many others. Well, my punk picks may be the opposite of where most people would place them I think.

I think 1978 is slightly better than 1977. I kept thinking of albums that I thought came out in 77, but double checked that they were 78
Have you listened to any Peter Green era Fleetwood? They've had such a diverse output that this sounds a bit out there.
I prefer this bluesy more guitar heavy era of Fleetwood. Not only that, but Green’s tone is immaculate.
I like Rumours the best, but I’ll take any Peter Green era album over any other Fleetwood Mac release, including Tusk.
I’m going to hell.
