AllMusic Review by

Sold exclusively at Starbucks stores, the 2013 compilation The Opus Collection is a 15-track collection of highlights from Fleetwood Mac's classic years. This does contain big hits -- "You Make Loving Fun," "Go Your Own Way," "Sara," "Rhiannon," "Dreams" -- along with a few oddities (a demo of "Planets of the Universe," originally released on a 2004 expanded reissue of Rumours), but the overall effect is to ever so slightly emphasize Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie over Lindsey Buckingham. Most of Stevie's great songs are here, and Christine also has a spotlight on her Tusk deep cut "Honey Hi," while Lindsey only gets "Never Going Back Again." This may not precisely reflect the division of labor in the band, but it does make for a very nice, adult contemporary-leaning collection that will surely satisfy consumers who pick it up in Starbucks.
