Album review: Lindsey Buckingham - Gift Of Screws, 4/5 11/09/2008

The major powerhouse and songwriter behind Fleetwood Mac’s golden era, Buckingham’s knack for blending experimentation and killer hooks finds sharp focus on this, his fifth solo album.

With Mac stalwarts Mick Fleetwood and John McVie providing the rhythmic foundation, Buckingham unleashes incendiary guitar licks aplenty, Clash meets Beach Boys-style rocking fun (Underground), and mixes a feel for exotic topicality (Time Precious Time) with seasoned sensitivity and political commitment (Treason).
