There’s a big difference between homaging Fleetwood Mac and imitating them. Little Big Town is at its best when it does the former, but on “Fine Line”, they’re definitely doing the latter. It’s not a bad record, just an uninteresting one. The tension that is built in the beginning never pays off, leaving the whole thing sounding fairly anticlimactic. There are much better reintroductions to their A Place to Land disc than this one.
