Album Review

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.

Customer Reviews


I'm completely blown away that I'm the second person to comment on this CD. It's one of his BEST!


This is Lindsey at his absolute best. Well produced, written and played. Worth every penny. If you're a fan of Fleetwood Mac you'll love this album.

A Gem. I Agree.

As a big fan of vocal harmonies I am in awe of Buckingham's expert layering of vocals throughout Cradle. And his guitar virtuosity is allowed to shine through and does not disappoint. While there is plenty for Fleetwood Mac fans to identify with here, the palette is more broad. All My Sorrow reminds me of The Association with its soulful harmonies. This Is the Time brings to mind Pink Floyd. Street of Dreams shows he can go it alone and delivers a haunting, bluesy vocal solo. And just when you think he's done there's Surrender the Rain with a spoken word intro that segues into a infectious swaying melody. There's something for everyone here and it is a glimpse into the worlds he will take us to in the new century.

Before he joined Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham was sketching out his brand of Brian Wilson-influenced pop with Stevie Nicks in the folky duo Buckingham Nicks. Mick Fleetwood invited the duo to join his band in late 1974. After Buckingham joined, the band's pop tendencies flowered under his direction. Not only did he provide the group with some brilliant, surprisingly dark pop songs, he sharpened the other members' songs with his production, arrangements, and breathtaking guitar playing.
