Fleetwood Mac gets it right--sometimes an EP is enough

Fleetwood Mac is releaing an EP of new material very soon....and when I first heard that, I thought--an EP? Is that all you've got? You're one of the most popular bands of all time who've recorded dozens of amazing songs and multi-platinum hits, and now all you can come up with is an EP? Just a few songs instead of a full album?

But then I thought...that's a great plan. No one really listens to full albums any more, and quite often the new albums that come out from classic artists like that are just not that good. The creative fire has smoldered too long and the bright flashes are few and far between.

For example, when the Eagles came out with that only-at-Walmart album, Long Road Out of Eden, in 2007, it was a two disc set.  Who really wanted to hear 20 new songs from the Eagles? The only good song was "How Long," which was in fact not written by an Eagle, but by J.D. Souther.   I think that an EP would have sufficed.

Here's Lindsey Buckingham talking about their newest music and the band playing a new song:

 



Like a bluebird with his heart removed...remember this one?
