Christine McVie
In the Meantime
Sanctuary
by Mark Edwards

** (2 out of 5 stars) 
 
No band better exemplifies the adage that you need conflict in a group to create great music than Fleetwood Mac, where a soap opera’s worth of dysfunctional relationships and addictions created some of the best adult-oriented rock ever to grace the airwaves. Christine McVie left the bickering band some half-a-dozen years ago for a quieter, presumably happier, life out in the country, and — well, you’re way ahead of me, aren’t you? — the result is a solo album of soft rock so soporific that you’d swear several of the session musicians fell asleep while making it. Which is a shame, because the one song where the album sparks into life — Anything Is Possible — suggests that McVie still has hits inside her, if only she had something a little edgier to write about.
