Fleetwood Mac's Tusk and The Eagles' The Long Run

Al Aronowitz, The Washington Post, 14 November 1979

LONG AND EAGERLY AWAITED, Fleetwood Mac's Tusk comes as the most spectacular event in records since Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Key of Life. Less of an event is the release of The Long Run by the Eagles, who have delivered a workmanlike disc full of neither disappointments nor surprises. Tusk stretches the limits of the recording medium. The Long Run stays safely within them.
