Overview

Lindsey Buckingham quit Fleetwood Mac after the release of their Tango in the Night album in 1987 and spent the subsequent five years working on his first post-Mac solo album, Out of the Cradle. Perhaps because he was now focused on his solo career, Buckingham reined in the experimental style of his first two albums, producing more conventional, accessible material, much of it similar to his later work with Fleetwood Mac. The inventiveness this time was heard largely in Buckingham's electro-acoustic guitar style, which combined the power of a rock guitarist with the delicacy and precision of a classical nylon-string player. Perhaps the biggest difference from his previous solo work, however, was that Buckingham actually wrote a group of songs that were about something, not just riffs full of aural tricks. Unfortunately, Buckingham had never fully established himself in the public mind as a separate entity apart from Fleetwood Mac, so taking eight years between solo albums made Out of the Cradle a tough sell. Which means that, although this is his most listenable solo album to date, not many people heard it.

This is definitely Lindsey Buckingham's greatest album to date. The songs are haunting, while at the same time, very comforting. Mr. Buckingham delves deep into human emotion and takes the listener along. If you enjoy Lindsey Buckingham or Fleetwood Mac, this is a must have.

Lindsey has proven beyond any doubt that he is a guitarist of rare ability. There are few who come close to his caliber of excellence. The man uses his guitar to create a surreal landscape and emote responses in the listener, both individual and universal. It would be sublime to hear a totally instrumental project by Mr. Buckingahm.

Of course I have always enjoyed Lindsey as a part of Fleetwood Mac, but I became transfixed on a song called "Time Bomb Town", which is part of the "Back To The Future" soundtrack. This album is full of the same bewitching melodies. Truly, I am glad I have discovered this CD and I never tire of listening to it. Lindsey is a master of the guitar.

The work of a genius. The kind of album that will still sound relevant 50 years from now.

These songs from this album all sound great. Lindsey did so good on performing all his songs from here. When I listen to these songs I feel good everytime. So this is a wonderful album.
