Editorial Reviews

Out of the Cradle is the kind of adult rock record that gets lost in a marketplace that caters only to a younger audience. Buckingham developed his songwriting and production skills as the most-valuable-player in Fleetwood Mac, but as a solo artist he's proven to be a bit too arty for the mass audience he'd won as a member of Mac. Out of the Cradle is a sumptuously recorded labor of love that's as thick with guitars as it is with intricate vocal harmonies. "Surrender the Rain," billowing with voices, suggests an arty take on the Beach Boys, while "Soul Drifter" rocks to a seductive beat that's swaddled with guitars. The entire album is a treat for guitar freaks, as Buckingham includes instrumental interludes and lavishes as much attention on the sound of his guitars as most producers spend on the entire band. Buckingham interrupted work on his followup to this album for the recent Fleetwood Mac reunion. After all, a man's got to eat. --John Milward

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the decade's greatest pop albums December 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Many call this the greatest record Fleetwood Mac never made. Song for song, this is Lindsey Buckingham's masterpiece. It is no wonder that he spent years in his home studio crafting these little works of genius. By far the best of Buckingham's three solo records, Out of the Cradle shows huge growth in his songwriting and more jaw-dropping guitar work. The fact that this album only sold a few hundred thousand copies is a testament to the sad state of radio in this country (or a lazy record company). This album is just as much a requirement for serious music fans as Pet Sounds and Rubber Soul. The only negative -- we have to wait way too long for his next release.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "Prince" of adult comtemporary rock... July 6, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Having just seen the 2003 Fleetwood Mac tour in Dallas, I was most impressed by the strength and intensity of Lindsey Buckingham's performance. At 54 years old, he can still "bring it" with the best guitarists around today, so I felt compelled to re-listen to his (still) latest solo work "Out of the Cradle" and share a short review.
Most fans of Buckingham discuss his virtuoso guitar performance on this CD, but few speak to his overall musicianship...he's one of the few latter day musicians that can walk into the studio and walk out with a complete album all on his own (he gets minor help on three songs). Prince of yesteryear was also one of these types and the similarities between these two brilliant and enigmatic artists is striking. Visionary music while still maintaining "listenability" is truly a gift that both has had over the years (in my opinion) and Buckingham certainly has maintained this on all his solo albums. This one still maintains a freshness and immediacy ten years following it's initial release.
Certainly his guitar performances stand out on this work (I'd say moreso than his previous solo works), but his song structure and production capabilities most impress me on this album. The underlying driving rhythm on songs like "Wrong" and "Countdown" coupled with the layered guitar work (both rhythm and solo) make this CD delightfully different than "Law and Order" and "Go Insane"...and much different than anything that I've heard from Fleetwood Mac (I haven't heard the new album yet,however). These facts further solidify what I've felt for years...that Lindsey truly is THE artistic backbone of Fleetwood Mac and is equally responsible for their remarkable success over the years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best solo work of his career December 16, 1999
Format:Audio CD
If there were any lingering doubt about who best shaped the Fleetwood Mac sound of the 70's and 80's, this album should remove it. Out of the Cradle is a phenomenal achievement by the former frontman of the Mac. Lindsey, from what's been reported, spent three solid years writing, arranging, producing and performing this disc, and the efforts paid off. There are several upbeat tracks, but just as many slower, more introspective cuts that really showcase his intensity as a performer. Except for some help on two or three songs, Lindsey was the sole musician on this album. His acoustic guitar playing has never before been captured this well, and the overall production is crystalline. The best upbeat cuts are Don't Look Down, Countdown and Doing What I Can, which all have hints of production techniques employed on Fleetwood Mac's last studio album, Tango in the Night; such as the layering and sampling of vocals, and the emphasis on the aural presence of the drums and percussion. But the slower songs, again, are the most impressive. All My Sorrows, Soul Drifter and Street of Dreams show the deep emotional commitment Lindsey brought to making this disc. As is usually the case with music this strong, it was completely ignored by American radio stations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar perfection. June 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
When rock fans list their guitar heroes, Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana are at the top of the list. Lindsey Buckingham has to be the most under-rated guitar hero on the planet. In comparison to his previous solo endeavours, which are even more warped than the solo material he put onto Fleetwood Mac's TUSK double-CD, this time he is doing what he does best: playing guitar. I can think of at least 8 solos on this record which sparkle, and that's not even trying. Mac fans will certainly love "Countdown." Lindsey, as he wrote this, was trying to find purpose after Fleetwood Mac, and made a point to wax sarcastic about the band, though almost in an undertone. Now, having praised Lindsey's lead guitar, let me add for the new fan that he also played 96% of the rest of the instruments, sang all the vocals, and produced it. Lindsey Buckingham is the best contender for James Brown's old title (now claimed by the Artist fka Prince) of Hardest Working Man in Show Business.

5.0 out of 5 stars OUT OF THE CRADLE � A Masterclass for Guitarists. October 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Listening to this album, you feel that Buckingham did what he does best - just picked up a guitar and played. He is comfortable in any style, from the pseudoclassical rendition of This Nearly Was Mine, through perfect pop on Soul Drifter and You Do Or You Don't, to jagged edged rock on This Is The Time, but this album also clearly reveals his early grounding in acoustic folk, most obviously on All My Sorrows. His contributions to Fleetwood Mac are also revisited here: the solos on Countdown owe much to Go Your Own Way; Wrong borrows a bass line from Tusk; and Doing What I Can is a reworking of Big Love. The guitar sounds are sublime throughout, with layer upon layer of acoustic finger picking and electric riffs providing an object lesson whether you are a Mac fan or not.
This album contains some of Buckingham's most mature and relaxed vocal performances. On most of the songs he eschews the androgynous style of Fleetwood Mac in favour of a more masculine sound, however his choice to perform all his own backing vocals meets with mixed results. On the otherwise excellent Turn It On the warmth of a female voice is conspicuous by its absence. Although in the past Buckingham's lyrics have not always been particularly sophisticated, here he is by turns clever and thoughtful. Wrong is as much of a rebuttal of events described in Mick Fleetwood's autobiography as he will ever give, and Street of Dreams deals tenderly with personal loss.
Overall, this is Lindsey Buckingham at his best. He was able to lavish time and effort producing exactly the album he wanted, rather than fitting it in among his commitments to Fleetwood Mac, resulting in a work of art which he is unlikely to surpass. Unfortunately. (Go on, LB, prove me wrong!)

This is his very best cd. If you only intend to buy one of his cd's then this is the one to own. His last cd--Seeds We Sow is almost its equal in quality.
