In every song she sang, Christine McVie sounded like she was telling an emotional truth. Her voice was an ache in auditory form, a melodic prayer of hope and hurt. Whether on her own, with the band that made her famous, or cutting through the mix of a yacht-rock hit, McVie sounded fully present in everything she touched. This is one of the reasons so much of her work became instantly meaningful when it was first recorded and remains meaningful no matter how many times you hear it. McVie — Christine Perfect — left a piece of herself in every note she wrote, and you can feel that no matter how many times you’ve heard them.” ~ Jen Chaney, New York Magazine
