Taken as a trilogy Under the Sun, Gift of Screws and now Seeds we Sow have been the most consistent and enjoyable 3 albums of his career. Buckingham has now fully incorporated and perfected the glissando guitar style he began using with Big Love and used on his last 3 albums. It is omnipresent here and brilliantly used on the title cut and on Stars are Crazy. But the most innovative and interesting guitar work is on In Our Own Time, where he interweaves several ultracool guitar parts culminating in the discordant picking during the chorus that is just mind blowing. The emotional highlight of the album is End of Time, a traditional sounding Mac-style song about morality that will tear your heart out. Best album of the year for me.

Wow. Just beautiful! Almost every song is stunning in it's own way. The guitar on One Take is crazy!! Rock Away Blind is brilliant and beautiful and on par or better than Bel Air Rain ( from Gift of Screws album )! The Rolling Stones cover, She Smiled Sweetly is just lovely. When She Comes Down...gorgeous. Really, not a clunker on here. Illumination, That's the Way Love Goes, Stars Are Crazy, In Our Own Time, Seeds We Sow, and End of Time are all great, great songs! The accoustic version of End of Time is so pretty. Actually, Gone Too Far is the only one that sounds kind of generic to me...nothing special, but still good. ALL the other songs though, are Lindsey at his best. A great album from start to finish. Put on your best headphones and kick back...you're in for a treat.

Lindsey Buckingham is one of those singer/songwriter/musicians who is truly an artist. His last two solo albums (UNDER THE SKIN and GIFT OF SCREWS) were absolutely beautiful, almost like musical tapestries (with a hefty amount of grit thrown in to roughen things up a bit). SEEDS WE SOW follows a similar vein.

From the ethereal "Gone Too Far," to the angry "One Take," to the simplistic rocking wonder of "That's the Way Love Goes," SEEDS is an almost pitch-perfect pop/rock record. Buckingham's musicianship has never been better; he can still make a guitar do things previously unimaginable. His voice has aged nicely (more like whiskey than wine, I'd say, which is just the way it should be), and his lyrics remain cryptic, yet somehow undeniably relatable.

Of his three most recent solo efforts, SEEDS is perhaps the strongest, in that the songs congeal into an amazing album, yet are listenable and fantastic on their own. (Both SKIN and SCREWS are strongest when listened in one long sitting, as opposed to one track at a time.) It's an album by a master tunesmith who has nothing left to prove, and is simply making music he enjoys making. Fortunately, it's music that still has something worth saying, that is still unique and groundbreaking.

"Seeds We Sow" makes the sixth studio solo album by Buckingham--equal to the six Fleetwood Mac albums he's appeared on. How has Buckingham managed to capture lightning mojo in a bottle at age 62? This surely completes his renaissance trilogy begun with 2006's "Under The Skin". Three solo albums of solid material, each unique in their own right. But it is "Seeds We Sow" that appears most uniform and cohesive. A tight musical vision with exceptional finger picking guitar work put on display in such works as "Rock Away Blind" and the title track.

It is difficult to critique a Buckingham solo album as they are all unusually strong, but particularly his past four. I admit to my positive bias. If you love pop music like I do, then you must have certain artists who, for reasons unknown, are like a close friend. Someone who seems to produce hit after hit, everything turning to gold. Lindsey Buckingham is like that for me. Easily in my top echelon of greatest musicians, but more importantly, as a composer and arranger. He has a gift for melody that is truly uncanny--like Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood, Bruce Hornsby, Daryl Hall, Elton John or Billy Joel.

"Seeds We Sow" is one of his finest, and the reason for the five stars is that it seems of the eleven songs here there really isn't a bad one in the lot. I can listen to this disc from beginning to end, and then hit repeat. That's rare. Of course my favorite track is "Rock Away Blind" because of the way Buckingham creates a unique melody through his guitar picking and reverb. No one wields reverb like Buckingham does. Reverb becomes an instrument unto itself. "Stars Are Crazy" is close behind as it is an atmospheric track full of mood and rumination. "In Our Own Time" is a great change up track between the verses and the chorus.

I'll start by saying that I am a huge Lindsey Buckingham (LB)fan, particularly because I play guitar and he is one of my favorite players. I believe that he is extremely underrated when it comes to his guitar playing. That being said, my review of this album is intended to be as objective as possible.

Before I got the album, I read Rolling Stone's review (gave it 3 of 5 stars) where they criticized the album for being overproduced, stating that LB basically didnt leave much for the other musicians to do. At first listen, I was disappointed because the album sounded overly produced like Rolling Stone said. I don't know why LB insists on using lots of echo and other effects on his vocals because I think he has a decent voice. Many of his songs also have that distinctive arpeggio or as some call it "speed picking" element to them. Between the vocal effects and that type of guitar sound, you ofen come away with what my wife calls "mood music," which is how she described a couple of the songs on the album after her first listen. In that regard, I won't argue with some of the other reviews that criticize the album for being "more of the same."

I saw LB last night in Red Bank, NJ at The Count Basie Theater. I was quite surprised (and slightly depressed) that the theater, which seats about 2000, was half empty. However, Lindsey put on a great show and his vocals were great. If you haven't already seen it, check out his DVD--Songs From The Small Machine--in which he plays about half of the new album. The live vocals and instruments make the songs sound stripped down compared to the polished element of the album and it makes you wonder why LB didnt take some of the sheen off in the studio when he made the album.
