Allmusic.com gave Rumours a 5 star review:
Rumours is the kind of album that transcends its origins and reputation, entering the realm of legend — it’s an album that simply exists outside of criticism and outside of its time, even if it thoroughly captures its era. Prior to this LP, Fleetwood Mac were moderately successful, but here they turned into a full-fledged phenomenon, with Rumours becoming the biggest-selling pop album to date. While its chart success was historic, much of the legend surrounding the record is born from the group’s internal turmoil. Unlike most bands, Fleetwood Mac in the mid-’70s were professionally and romantically intertwined, with no less than two couples in the band, but as their professional career took off, the personal side unraveled.
Collectors were showing a lot of interest in colored vinyl in the late 1970s, so record companies around the world began releasing old and then-new titles as limited edition colored vinyl pressings to accommodate them. These titles were widely exported to the United States, where they were sold at premium prices – roughly twice the price of a domestic LP.
In the Netherlands, a number of titles were released by the Rolling Stones, along with two by Fleetwood Mac – Fleetwood Mac, and Rumours, both of which were pressed on white vinyl.
