Christime McVie
In The Meantime

*** (3 out of 5 stars) 

Former Fleetwood Mac songbird flies solo for the first time in two decades.
Fleetwood Mac's cool-as-an-oyster chanteuse decided to pass on Mac's latest reunion efforts, prompting her former bandmates to insist the icy blonde was fed up with music business, and planned to retreat to her country home. But in seems Christine McVie was fed up with her erstwhile companions, and stealthily recorded In The Meantime, rather then participate in reconfiguring the '70s pop monolith. Just so we know she means business.  
McVie not-so-cyptically tackles the invitaion on the vituperous Bad Journey, leaving no doubt that she's shut the door on her past for good. Most of In The Meantime finds the once-winsome musician with claws extended - penning songs that crackle with ire, indignation, and with none of the frothy self-deception of the past, be it on the casual hit-or-miss sex of Anything Is Possible or the chilly kiss-off of Sweet Revenge.
