Buckingham provides the wild cards, in largely self-recorded plunges into his own skittish psyche, culminating in the massive title song, beefed up by the University of Southern California's marching band, but more cannily in dreamy music-box exercises 'That's All for Everyone' and sudden bursts of gonzo, fuzz-toned rock 'That's Enough for Me'.
Better than its detractors thought upon release, Tusk was a brave platinum 'failure' that actually charts where subsequent Mac and Buckingham projects would go. Music Vinyl Record Vinyl Record.

It Rumours didn't cost so much because we were in a cheaper studio. There's no denying what it cost, but I think it's been taken out of context. After the studio was built, Buckingham queried Fleetwood about recording some songs at his home studio.
