Lexington Herald Leader

Lindsey Buckingham at the Taft Theatre in Cincinnati: By far the bravest and most intuitive pop intellect in Fleetwood Mac, Buckingham seemed bent on showing off a more introspective side in this rare concert away from the veteran group. Driven by songs about "growing up from a state of arrested development" off his new album Under the Skin, the performance opened with the singer alone onstage. Despite the solo acoustic design, Buckingham's hopped-up finger-picking and breathy high tenor singing reflected the moody atmospherics that have long been trademarks of his studio recordings. From then on, the show was like an attempted exorcism as Buckingham's inner rock star waged battle with the more disciplined solo artist. Ultimately, the rock star prevailed. When the full-quartet guitar desperation of I'm So Afraid kicked in, it was the '70s all over again. The solo artist and rock star, it seemed, were both elated.
