RATING: * * * * (4 stars out of 5)
Get ready to rock…gently to Fleetwood Mac! On Tuesday, Feburary 10, the music of Fleetwood Mac receives a baby-friendly transformation from the award-winning lullaby series Rockabye Baby with the release of Lullaby Renditions of Fleetwood Mac.
Unsurprisingly, Christine McVie’s songs work the best. The eternal optimist’s bright pop melodies naturally lend themselves to this genre. After hearing their impressive transformations, it’s hard to imagine her hit Fleetwood Mac singles “Say You Love Me,” “Don’t Stop,” Everywhere,” and “Little Lies” could have been anything else but these adorable lullabies.
Similarly, the whimsical quality of Lindsey Buckingham’s acoustic classic “Never Going Back Again” and Stevie Nicks’s majestic “Gypsy” shine through as carefree jaunts to dreamland…or the Enchanted Forest!
Rounding out the collections are the less lullaby-like, more meditative “The Chain,” “Dreams,” and “Gold Dust Woman,” which are clearly for the grown-ups.
Be sure to check out the liner booklets for fun games (involving the song titles) and a baby food recipe called “You Make Pumpkin Fun.”
All Rockabye Baby releases are available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon and the Rockabye Baby site. To hear samples of lullabied music from The Beatles, Kanye West, Madonna, Guns N’ Roses and more, click here.
