Tango in the Nightby Fleetwood Mac
Artistically and commercially, the Stevie Nicks/Lindsey Buckingham/Mick Fleetwood/Christine and John McVie edition of Fleetwood Mac had been on a roll for over a decade when Tango in the Night was released in early 1987. This would, unfortunately, be Buckingham's last album with the pop
ock supergroup -- and he definitely ended his association with the band on a creative high note. Serving as the album's main producer, Buckingham gives an edgy quality to everything from the haunting "Isn't It Midnight" to the poetic "Seven Wonders" to the dreamy "Everywhere." Though Buckingham doesn't over-produce, his thoughtful use of synthesizers is a major asset. Without question, "Family Man" and "Caroline" are among the best songs ever written by Buckingham, who consistently brings out the best in his colleagues on this superb album.

All these songs make me feel so good that they're not like any other singers I know who are as good as them. The songs I enjoy listening to are "Seven Wonders", "Everywhere", "Family Man", "Welcome To The Room Sara", "When I See You Again", and "You and I".
Tango in the Night, while sounding quite different from the band's late 70s and early 80s recordings, manages to pull through head and shoulders above Rumours, Mirage, Fleetwood Mac, and Tusk combined. The prominent synths and drum sequencing work well with the Mac's sound and actually enhance the tracks. In fact, there are only two bad tracks on the album (''Family Man'' and ''When I See You Again''). Ten more great songs balance out the bad ones. High points include ''Big Love'', ''Seven Wonders'', ''Everywhere'', and ''Little Lies''. After the mediocraty of Mirage, it's nice to hear the Mac back on top of their music.
