    "The Ledge", "Save Me A Place", "What Makes You Think You're The One", "That's All For Everyone", "Not That Funny", "That's Enough For Me", "I Know I'm Not Wrong", "Walk A Thin Line" and the title track are the highlights of this delightfully weird pop masterdisasterpiece. This pressing sounds really good, with ample low end, clearly defined vocals and instrumentation, and a layered but detailed soundstage. "Tusk" sounds fantastic when cranked up. It should be noted that a couple of the Buckingham songs sound a bit lo-fi compared to the rest of the album, as they were recorded at his home studio and aren't as polished. My copy is in great shape, both records play nice and clean, and very quiet, with almost no detectable surface noise. I know this record sold multi-millions, but still feels like I got a great deal scoring this for three bucks. But why do you need four inner sleeves for two records? Wretched excess at its finest.

      Wonderful album and this pressing sounds superb. As already mentioned some tracks have better SQ than others but overall a sumptuous pressing.

        Basically Fleetwood Mac's "White Album". I really think it's an undersung classic. It's hard to come out from under the shadow of an album like "Rumors," but "Tusk" is a solid album that deserves your attention. There aren't really any bad songs, of course, some are better than others, but everything is good here. 9/10 album.

          This pressing sounds good, there are some tracks that are better then others, on the whole good dynamics and good range. Must have if you like fleetwood mack and want a good sounding copy of this album.

            I'm pretty sure every track written by Christine McVie on Tusk is my favorite. Side 3 is a 5/5 for me, but there are some real funky ones in the beginning of the record that I don't really prefer written by Lindsey. Overall, pretty great record. 3.5/5
