Background: Released in 1973, Mystery to Me was the eighth studio album by Fleetwood Mac.
The album reached #67 on the U.S. album charts but did not chart in the UK.
At this point, the band was best-known as a British blues unit. Slowly but surely the band was becoming more acclimated with a production style that was reminiscent of the California pop sound. With the majority of the blues and psychedelic behind them, Mystery to Me finds Fleetwood Mac in a more ruminative vein. American guitarist Bob Welch established that path. Despite the all-encompassing ethos, Welch’s songwriting skills made him walk a fine line between the mystical and the silly. But luckily most everything works here. The leadoff song, the laid-back “Emerald Eyes” matches Welch’s spacey lyrics and vocals as Christine McVie provides great backing help. The album’s best track, the gorgeous and lyrically strong “Hypnotized” has Welch matching an effortless, soothing croon with jazzy guitar riffs. …This effort is custom-made for those who like thoughtful offerings and is a valuable set in the scheme of the band.
