Stevie Nicks had already launched a solo career by the time this album was released, but that didn't mean Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, and Chrissie McVie wouldn't continue to dash off engaging, pop numbers. Mirage possesses a handful of high points that would entice any FM fan. Whether it is Buckingham's "Book of Love", or Nicks's mesmerizing "Gypsy", or McVie's contagious "Love in Store", the enchanting chemistry is ever-present.

Fleetwood Mac retreated from the insular strangeness of Tusk and returned to straightforward pop songcraft for Mirage. Boasting a glossy, friendly production that makes even the lesser numbers pleasant and ingratiating, Mirage nonetheless suffers from a lack of substance. Rumours had raw emotion to give it a core, and Tusk had Lindsey Buckingham's runaway ambition. For its part, Mirage sounds as if its sole goal is to sustain Fleetwood Mac's popularity, and while there may be a handful of terrific songs – notably the hit singles "Gypsy," "Love in Store," and "Hold Me" – it simply isn't as compelling as the group's previous three albums.
