Lindsey Buckingham
Under the Skin (Reprise) 12.99

If Fleetwood Mac are a guilty pleasure, enjoying a solo album by their former guitarist should be a heinous crime. But there's little MOR bombast on Lindsey Buckingham's fourth solo record; these are dusty redemption songs which draw on the sparest of elements. 'Show You How' summons and sustains a groove with little more than a guitar and cleverly layered vocals. And 'Under the Skin' builds on a simple, strummed motif with Buckingham's voice shimmering beautifully like a heat-haze. When he does at last display his knack for the heroic chorus, he unleashes another aspect of a singular musical talent.
