    The 80's is the perfect biting point for this music. It was the first time that there was the technical capacity to achieve the required lushness, but before rap and dance music killed melody.

    Tango In The Night is the best Fleetwood Mac album.

    Parts of this album are an amazing time capsule to the mid-80s - it's like the Edge of Darkness of pop.

    Obviously true but also indicates how much Rock has lost by not having more stevies with control, who can modulate the voice and make it yield things, rock vocalists just blaring it out at one lumpen frequency, ON

    The 80s was the last time you could have a love song. The last hurrah of romance. So also, presumably, the last time it was possible to fall in love without knowing it is a programmed illusion
