enormous insult to danny kirwan
Review written by james prichard, April 26th, 2013

those with indiscriminate taste fawn all over this . kirwan is criminally barely represented . a shameful compilation for fleetwood mac fans. all kirwan songs makes more sense

25 Years in Making Great Hits
Review written by Scott, September 4th, 2004

25 great years in making hit after hit. This 4 CD box set is a great album of good hits to listen to on a cold winter day or if you have nothing eles to do. I like how they put many of the songs off each album and the 3 to 4 songs they added that did'nt make the album cuts off of Mirage album. I also like how the put some unrealesed live songs on this album. This is a great album to listen to.

    Comments »

Overall, Fleetwood Mac's four-CD box set, 25 Years - The Chain, contains a lot of great music, with plenty of the 70s hits that made them one of the biggest bands in the world. As a complete chronicle it fails; not enough weight is given to the early, blues-based Mac with Peter Green (especially to Bare Trees and Future Games) and there are too many songs (nearly a whole disc's worth) from the lightweight albums from the 80s. Also, the haphazard song sequencing doesn't help matters -- it doesn't make the case for Fleetwood Mac's music as a body of work and it doesn't trace their evolution which should be apparent from the diversity of the music. Despite these shortcomings, the set is enjoyable if not definitive. If nothing else, 25 Years - The Chain offers evidence that Lindsey Buckingham was a brilliant pop composer and that the band's 70s success was well-deserved. Rated: 2. (All Music Guide, Volume 1, Number 1)

"Dust My Broom" is incorrectly credited as "I Believe My Time Ain't Long".

"Oh Well" is the original mono version rechannelled for stereo.
