Gift of Screws - LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM (Billboard Review)
Billboard Magazine
Lindsey Buckingham once sang about "Never Going Back Again," but he's
backtracked—sort of—on his fifth solo album. "Gift of Screws" picks up
where the rock auteur left off in the early days of this decade,
before he was lured back into the Fleetwood Mac fold for 2003's "Say
You Will." Mac minions will find this electric-flavored, band-sounding
album pleasing, but there's also the avant ambience that's
Buckingham's stock in trade. So while something like "The Right Place
to Fade" knocks off Fleetwood Mac's "Second Hand News" and the title
cut (one of three recorded with the Mick Fleetwood-John McVie rhythm
section) is charging garage rock, "Great Day" sports the stark and
primitive sonics of "Tusk" and Buckingham's early solo albums. —Gary
