By the time Fleetwood Mac (with an entirely different formation when compared to their humble beginnings in the 60s) hit the jackpot with their fantastic string of records in the mid 70s (self-titled, Rumours, Tusk), their sound expanded to a much larger, almost cinematic approach to pop, soft-rock and folk, if you will, with Rumours being the absolute best effort of the band, and showing pretty much every facet they were seeking, with maximum results.

Even though I didn't grow up in the '70s, this definitely deserved the Grammy for Best Album. It is what makes Fleetwood Mac an awesome band. There is not a bad song on here, and each one tells a story. Go Your Own Way, Dreams, Don't Stop, You Make Loving Fun, The Chain, and Gold Dust Woman are the best tracks. In fact, it's most of their biggest hits.
