In the Meantime
Christine McVie (Sanctuary/Shock)

7 stars: In a funny way, it's possible to take a talent like Christine McVie's for granted. Near-perfect pop. So what? It's only when you hear it again, after a long hiatus, that the bleedin' obvious becomes, er, obvious. What a voice! I've heard if from the earliest days when she was in Chicken Shack and then the surprising but supremely right move to Fleetwood Mac and the huge commercial era that followed. With her skills and talent, and presumably healthy bank balance, McVie is not going to let a dud loose on the public, and she hasn't. This is as svelte and polished as you would expect, up to and including a layer of substance behind all that pop melodicism, the Mac-ish fluid drive of the songs and pop groove matched with gently illuminated production and sparkle. At its best this recalls the Fleetwood glory years (You Are) and even in the lesser moments there is that phenomenal voice.

Thanks to dougl for posting the article to the Ledge.
