No. 13 Rumours by Fleetwood Mac (1977)
Some dismissed their mid-70s incarnation as a “corporate” rock band, but Fleetwood Mac was a band dedicated to craftsmanship. Nowhere is that more exemplified on this blockbuster—which was the best-selling album of all time before Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Excellent songwriting, production and performances abound—and one listen is all it takes to understand why so many people rushed out to buy this album.
