Background: Released in late 1979, Tusk was the twelfth studio album by Fleetwood Mac.
The album reached #1 on the UK charts and #4 in the U.S.
More than any other Fleetwood Mac album, Tusk is born of a particular time and place — it could only have been created in the aftermath of Rumours, which shattered sales records, which in turn gave the group a blank check for its next album. But if they were falling apart during the making of Rumours, they were officially broken and shattered during the making of Tusk, and that disconnect between bandmembers resulted in a sprawling, incoherent, and utterly brilliant 20-track double album. …As a piece of pop art, it’s peerless.
