Editorial Reviews

On August 14, 2012, Hear Music/Concord will release Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac, a striking 17-track collection of Fleetwood Mac covers from a diverse band of creative forces that draw upon every era of the influential groups 45-year history.

Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute To Fleetwood Mac was produced by esteemed film and television music supervisor Randall Poster and Gelya Robb, the creative team behind 2011s highly acclaimed Rave On Buddy Holly (Fantasy/Concord); which debuted in the Billboard Top 20 and earned a Grammy nomination.

Known for his work with directors Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson and Todd
Haynes among many others, Poster was inspired to craft this loving tribute by his lifelong affection for Fleetwood Mac and encouraged every artist to make each song their own.

Just let me begin by stating that I love Fleetwood Mac, and I love many of the bands on this compilation. With that said...

This tribute album is a missed opportunity. JUST TELL ME THAT YOU WANT ME is a 17-track record full of cover versions of (mostly) indie bands laying down their take on the iconic Fleetwood Mac. Most of the music here is reverently faithful to the master tracks; those hoping that Best Coast and the New Pornographers were going to bring their own indie sensibilities to Fleetwood Mac will be disappointed by these bands sticking so close to the original. Alternately, Fleetwood Mac fans eager to here some of their favorite songs transformed won't find much interesting here either.

Antony's cover of "Landslide" is a pretty solid disappointment; it is a fairly straight rendition of the song, but it only serves a missed opportunity. The Smashing Pumpkins' cover of the song during the 1990's and the original outshine the track here. The bluesy and distorted "Oh Well" seems to have been made for Billy Gibbons, and his cover is much less energetic, but just as punchy. Best Coast's "Rhiannon" is fine, but it's pretty limp and bland compared to Fleetwood Mac's original; at its worst it sounds like a karaoke version of the song. The New Pornographer's "Think About Me" adds a few synthesizer riffs to an otherwise faithful cover. Aside from a few country-guitar rips, Karen Elson's "Gold Dust Woman" is an already familiar trip.

There are a few artists who provide good treatments to these songs. Swedish singer/songwriter Lykke Li takes "Silver Springs" and gives it a reverb-drenched eerie feel. The song that was initially a B-Side to "Go Your Own Way" serves as one of the best tracks here.

I think this is a really good collection of stevie nicks/fleetwood mac covers.
These are indie lo-fi interpretations of mostly stevie nicks penned tracks.
Not sure why the producer felt compelled to leave out christine mcvie and lindsey buckingham from the track list?
big love, brown eyes, i know i'm not wrong, over my head, you'll never make me cry, not that funny, hold me.....
For those omissions i give it three stars but the artists and tracks on this records are good.

When I first heard about this project and saw the list of artists & the song choices, hopes were high. Clearly, too high. The source material speaks for itself, and the groups all have cred. But, for the most part this just doesn't work. It's not in the "hot mess" column, it's just not very appealing. It plods along in most places, the songs being deconstructed, and unfortunately, not put back together with all pieces present in most cases. And it's just no fun to listen to. No joy, no spark, none of what made Fleetwood Mac so enduring and lasting. I didn't expect, nor what I want, note for note replays of the original songs. I was looking for some of the original creativity and presence to be integrated into the tribute. As I said, hopes were too high. Need an example? Listen to Best Coast (a really wonderful group) turn Rhiannon into musical porridge. Oh well, as the song says.

This seems more of a tribute to Stevie Nicks than it does to Fleetwood Mac. 10 of the 19 songs are hers and that's a huge missed opportunity for not just Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie (each are represented only twice), but of the Mac members who came before them. Granted, no record company is clamoring to do a tribute disk to the works of Danny Kirwin, but throwing more than four songs before the Buckingham-Nicks era seems silly.

Covering alt versions of Fleetwood Mac isn't a new concept - as Camper Van Beehtoven did it years ago with their entire cover of the 'Tusk' disk. ...and they did it better than most of the things on here. Even the tribute disk to 'Rumours' was a major fail - and that had much bigger named artists.

Still, 'Just Tell Me That You Want Me', is supposed to highlight that Fleetwood Mac was inspirational to artists of a much younger generation. However, most of them don't pull it off very well.

Songs that fare well, "That's All for Everyone" (Tame Impala), "Hold Me" (Haim), "Think About Me" (the New Pornographers) - though they don't stray too far from the original recordings. Marianne Faithfull's version of Nicks' "Angel" isn't bad at all...and Washed Out's "Straight Back" is pretty good. Though the original song was released in 1982, this has a newer wave of 1982 written all over this version, but it works.

The rest of the songs........not so much. They are bad party versions, uninspired or both.....and many of them ("Dreams", "Landslide", "Oh Well") have been done many times before - and better.

The risk would have been to do lesser known Mac songs, but then that would possibly limit their appeal to a bigger audience. The irony is, a record like this won't have huge audience potential anyways. They should have gone for the risk.

OK, the music is pretty decent. As some other reviewers have pointed out, there are hits and misses, but if you want to hear modern interpretations of songs you already know, this is a good place to come. A lot of them are very atmospheric, for lack of a better word.

However, if you MUST have, this, then buy it on iTunes or some other digital format. The packaging is HORRIBLE!!! For one thing, they're trying to be cute and package it in a format where it won't fit in the slot of a standard CD rack. Which is annoying, but minor - a lot of other artists are doing this, too. The bigger problem is there is nothing to protect the CD from being scratched against the cardboard cover. And the actual physical CD seems to be of inferior quality.

Good job, Package Design!!! Way to make your client's product unusable!!!
