"Come on down!"
Review written by Jon the Moonspinner, February 16th, 2010

Swirling, softly churning California rock, epitomizing the sand and surf and freeways of Newport and Laguna. Baked with a hot summer wind called Miranda while calling up bracing memories of sugar kisses and bubblegum. Recalling vans packed full of sunburned teenagers, the sweet aroma of weed and incense in the air. Lindsey and Stevie taking John's carfeul music to unheard-of dizzy-highs, as we pulled into the first driveway and realized it was all a high school dream

More Than I Bargained For
Review written by Bryce Lambley, September 7th, 2004

'Bombs Away' was released during my senior year in high school (79-80), and though I was still more into buying singles than albums at that time, I picked up the album cheap because it had one of those "cutouts" on the cover. I've never had such a bargain since.

While lured to the album by 'Gold' (as a Fleetwood Mac fanatic, I recognized Lindsey and Stevie on there long before reading the credits), what I found I bought was a perfect soundtrack to the things that were my essence back in my heydays.

As a fervent long distance runner, I found inspiration in several Stewart songs. "Sucking wind, I'm slipping down the backroad once again, and I'm on the run...over the hill" was a perfect soundtrack for my cross country and track days. The same could be said for my liking the underdog role in big races, represented by 'Coming out of nowhere on the run.'

Also frustrated by my poor timing with the ladies, Stewart had the answers there as well, with "Spinning of the world" and "Lost her in the sun." Lindsey's harmonizing in many of these songs takes them to an even higher level and makes one now wish there'd been much more collaboration between he and Stewart. Their work on 'Heart of the Dream' just blows my mind away to this day, and is a pick-me-up when things are down.

'Gold' and 'Midnight Wind' have that Fleetwood Mac feel to 'em and also of the siren song that I feel California represents to some. And many of the other songs feature the guitar work that we know and recognize as LB's although it seems now that LB and JS were kindred spirits.

It's weird now that I find this site, and this opportunity to review this album. Just a couple months ago I was out bowhunting, sitting in a tree stand doing some reminiscing, and decided to make a list of those albums that were good all the way through. A lot of albums have some great songs, but few are solid top to bottom. Though I have in excess of 300 albums, my list was only 7-8 albums long, but Bombs Away Dream Babies was on it, and should be mandatory in any Fleetwood Mac fan's audio library. You won't be disappointed, no matter how difficult it is to find. I really feel it is a masterpiece.
