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. It includes daring contributions from Lee Ranaldo featuring J Mascis, Antony, Trixie Whitley, Billy Gibbons & Co., Best Coast, New Pornographers, Marianne Faithfull, Lykke Li, Karen Elson, Matt Sweeney and Bonnie Prince Billy, Washed Out, Tame Impala, Craig Wedren with St. Vincent, The Kills, Gardens & Villa, The Crystal Ark, and MGMT.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to Recommend August 14, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where are the Lindsey tracks? August 15, 2012
By JBT
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

Being a Fleetwood Mac fan dating back to their Blues Rock era of the 1960's, I was somewhat suspect of this "tribute" album that was just released (Aug. 2012). These albums are hit and miss at best depending on the artist(s) being covered and those chosen to pay homage. One of the issues some have is the straight ahead versions with little or no change from the original. Hell, might as well listen to the original, right? Well yes and no. It depends on the listener. For me I prefer at least a different arrangement.

Having read some of the Amazon reviewer's comments I had decided to take a pass. A day or two later, I read several positive comments from music reviewers in various periodicals. So I decided to listen to the 17 samples available on Amazon's site. Buoyed by the pro reviewers and the brief samples, I ordered the CD. Now, you may not like certain songs or any of the songs but I have a hard time understanding that they are not unique covers.

There are several artists on the CD that I had not heard of; not the least of which was Trixie Whitley who is with a band called "Black Dub." She does a blues blistering take on a '69 FM song written by Peter Green (a founder and original front man) called "Before the Beginning." That's followed by another oldie written by Green called "Oh Well," taken from the Mac's '71 album "Black Magic Woman" performed by ZZ Top's Billy Gibbon's & company. One song that does sound pretty pure is the overplayed "Landslide" but it has the unique voice of Antony which adds a different dimension. The "Best Coast" duo bravely takes on the iconic "Rhiannon" giving it a "poppy" minimalist treatment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not all that... August 19, 2012
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some show stoppers, some shit September 15, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
If I were rating a couple of songs, like the show stopping version of "Storms" and "Landslide" and "Silver Springs," then this would be
five stars. I've listened to "Storms" more than any other song on this tribute. Matt Sweeney and Bonnie "Prince" Billy knock it out of the park
In fact, that version and the others I've mentioned here are so good it is almost enough to pull the entire tribute up out of the gutter
some of the other tracks abide in. Having said that, you'll have to find out what starts and skipping tracks have in common for you. Bottom
line, throw the good songs onto your mixes for friends and trash the rest and go back to the original gems.
