Lindsey Buckingham

Album: Gift of Screws (Reprise) In stores: Sept. 16

Why we care: We're unabashed Buckingham fans here at Listen to This, so we're thrilled that the SoCal staple has been keeping us in hot product. First, 2006's quiet, eerie Under the Skin. Earlier this year, the frenzied Live at the Bass Performance Hall. And next month, his most crowd-pleasing solo album ever. Get ready, Fleetwood Mac lovers.

Why we like it: Buckingham has always been a studio savant. But now that he's (finally) in a happy personal place, he allows his voice and searing Golden State guitar to have some fiery fun. If it had less sweet and more snark, Love Runs Deeper's buzzing solos and candy chorus would have fit fine on Rumours. Yep, that good.

Reminds us of: "Holiday ro-ooo-ooo-ooo-ad . . ."
