For more then three decades, Lindsey Buckingham has had a reputation
among millions of fans and countless fellow musicians as an honored and
singular . . .
"Troublemaker?" he offers, with a mischievous laugh.
Well, it was going to be creative force and innovator, a mad scientist
experimenter mixing passion and craft into a distinctive and affecting artistry.
But troublemaker will do.
"The world needs more troublemakers," Buckingham says.
Troublemaker, mad scientist, whatever you see him as, Lindsey Buckingham is
behind some of the most beloved and creative twists in modern popular
music. And with Gift of Screws he has made the kind of trouble only he can,
more than ever before bringing together the broad appeal he shown as the
main force behind the sound of Fleetwood Mac since he joined the group in
1973 with the restless spirit of experimentalism he's shown both with such
Mac landmarks as Rumours, Tusk and in his own visionary solo albums.
Gift of Screws is, in fact, a bracing and immediate result of 35 years of
exploration and growth, made by an artist who has against the odds found
new confidence and new abilities to express himself in ways at once
challenging and accessible. Rarely have the full array of his talents and all
aspects of his scope and sensibilities been integrated so thoroughly and
winningly as on this album. In some ways it's a rocking complement to his last
album, 2006's acoustic-focused Under the Skin, balancing such layered
guitars-and-voice contemplations as "Time Precious Time" and "Bel Air Rain"
with the seductive rush of the title song and the opener "Great Day." In some
ways it's an extension of the renewal with his Fleetwood Mac legacy - Mick
Fleetwood and John McVie provide the unmistakable foundation on several
songs, including the embracing "Wait for You" and the gloriously mad title
song. And linking the two are insightful examinations of love and belonging in
"Love Runs Deeper" and the secure-yet-shadowed closing pair
"Underground" and "Treason." Showcased throughout are Buckingham's
noted virtuosity as a guitarist and producer, as well as his expressiveness as
both a singer and writer.
