Daily Telegraph UK Review of Under the Skin

Under the Skin
Reprise, pounds 12.99
The former guitarist and singer with Fleetwood Mac has made his first solo album in more than a decade, and it's a peculiar, dream-like thing: stripped back and largely acoustic, almost entirely self-performed, and featuring some fantastic guitar picking. Trailing across it like a snake through the desert is Buckingham's dry, raspy voice, which requires heavy treatment to mask its weakness - hence the dreamy quality of many of the songs.
A strange and imperfect album, certainly, but powerful and honest, too.
