AllMusic [1]

Tusk is a 2003 studio album by American alternative rock group Camper Van Beethoven, a song-for-song remake of the Fleetwood Mac album of the same name. [2] [3] [4]

Tusk is the first album the band released following its reunion, and the band initially claimed that it was recorded before their break up. [5] However, it was recorded in the period leading up to their reunion tour. [6]

In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, bass player Victor Krummenacher admitted that some of the band members hate the 1979 album, saying that it was "like the Magnificent Ambersons of rock, a work that's supposed to be good, but is really just a cocaine-damaged horror of excess. Which is why we took it on, I suppose, and I think we improved upon it." [7]
