I like it too, very much!
Review written by Renee from New York, October 26th, 2007
Reading the above reviews, I have to say they are all spot on. I'm relatively new to the early Fleetwood Mac, and discovering their music was a complete and rather mindboggling relelation to me-- but it has been Danny's music in particular that has blown me away. I've immersed myself in everything he wrote and recorded with the Mac between '68 and '72, and I have to say I think his talent is prodigious and awesome. So I had a bit of trepidation when going ahead and listening to these tracks-- which, by the way, I've only actually heard in demo form on "Ram Jam City," the CD of master tracks that was put out a few years ago. Like others, I'd read some less than glowing reviews of his post-Mac efforts. But the more I listen to this, the more it's growing on me! I actually find I've got these songs stuck in my head now, and I like them more all the time. I have to agree with a reviewer who said that songs like "Lovely Days," "Second Chapter," "Cascades," and "Silver Streams" could fit in beautifully with what he was doing on the "Future Games" and "Bare Trees" albums. They are poignant, lush, evocative, and beautiful. I also really like his upbeat, sometimes quirky "Falling in Love With You," "Odds and Ends" and "Ram Jam City." They are full of energy and spirit. And he is in really fine voice throughout. Yes, I wish there more of his powerful, haunting guitar riffs...but I love this CD nevertheless, and I look forward to hearing how it turned out on the actual "Second Chapter" version.
