iTunes Review

Lindsey Buckingham’s first solo album builds on the dream-pop of 1979’s Tusk, but here the author is given the full control he was always pulling for in Fleetwood Mac. The sound design of Law and Order is sunlit and airy — one imagines these songs flowing from a room of glass walls and air conditioning. Buckingham’s taste might be cloudless and breezy, but these songs are still rooted in the fundamental styles of doo-wop and rockabilly. “Mary Lee Jones,” “That’s How We Do It in L.A.,” and “Love from Here, Love from There” reveal Buckingham’s lifelong fascination with Buddy Holly, while “I’ll Tell You Now,” “It Was I” and “September Song” form a suite of sock-hop slow dances. Law and Order is all about atmosphere, but at the same time, Buckingham’s songwriting chops have never been stronger, and his pop sensibility has never been sweeter. The album is anchored by a reading of the country standard “A Satisfied Mind,” while the twinkling single “Trouble” is a vision of unrivaled immaculacy and loveliness.

Customer Reviews

umm, amazing?

How has one not reviewed this yet? Especially since this album as been around for as long as I have! I am certain that once you hear these tracks, it shall take you a moment but you'll then think to yourself, "oh! i have heard this before!" and you won't be able to get enough of it. Ironically, I was always more of a Lindsey Buckingham solo fan myself.. this musician is beautifully amazing. Definitely a classic album, and one worth downloading right now...

Second best solo offering

Buckingham's solo work has been ambitious, elaborate and, all too frequently, underwhelming. I'm a HUGE fan and admirer, but for my money his finest solo work can be found on Tusk. Do this: make a playlist including the just the Buckingham numbersfrom Tusk (title track included). THAT album- the Buckingham-only Tusk, I mean- is one of my top ten all time favorites: rocking, edgy endlessly listenable and one-of-a-kind- nothing else sounds like it.

THIS album is good, no question. Starting w/ 'Bwana' you know you're in Buckingham-land: the vocals layered majestically over a catchy pop ditty about I -don't-know--what. Then there's the single, "Trouble" which is an absolute masterpiece: a perfect pop number cut from the Fleetwood Mac cloth. ...then the thing starts to wander. "Mary Lee Jones" sounds like a Buckingham riff on 50's doo-wop- good enough. "September Song" is fine. Things pick up again with 'Shadow of the West', another rumination on California in a succession of same. In case you missed the point, there's "That's How We Do it In LA".

'Trouble' is the only really indispensible cut. His later albums make this one most welcome in terms of it's being the last time he'd use this particular style of engineering and arrangement. Things get more digitized later and, for me, the sound suffers gravely in consequence- way too bright and toppy.


This album is just - Trouble. In the best sense this word can have

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.
