When asked what my favourite album on vinyl is, I really struggle because there are so many albums/artists/bands I love, usually ones from the 70’s or 80’s, but, if I had to narrow it down to just one single album, and just on constant content of the album, I would probably say…..Fleetwood Mac – Tango in the Night. This was one of my first albums I bought on vinyl, and only became aware of it when testing the album out on one of our record players in work.
I feel this album is so underrated when it comes to Fleetwood Mac albums. Their 1977 album ‘Rumours’ seems to take the winning spot for everyone as their ‘better album’, but I would disagree. Yes, it is a great album but for someone who grew up listening to 80’s I think I prefer this album over all the others because it exemplified the 80’s sound, and Fleetwood Mac clearly changed their style/sound to fit into that era of music.
This is my go-to album when I want to get motivated to do some cleaning, or just cheer myself up – I love how upbeat each song is. I mean how could you not get motivated from the first track ‘Big Love’ with Mick Fleetwood’s drumming and then straight into ‘Seven Wonders’? The perfect way to start off a sensational album. Yet it’s still the perfect album to just put on and chill out to. Stevie Nicks has such an amazing voice that will never be replaced, and I think her voice is phenomenal in every song on this album, especially in ‘Everywhere’.
Of course, there are songs that I don’t love as much as others, but for me, there isn’t a poor track on this album. For me, the album is flawless and the sound itself on vinyl is what you'd expect from a great remastered album. If you’re a Fleetwood Mac fan or even just a fan of good sounding 80’s music, Tango in the Night is a must and I would highly recommend it.
