Style: Plaintive pop; compare to Eddi Reader, Leo Kottke, Scritti Politti

Top tracks: "End of Time," "Illumination," "Stars Are Crazy"

Buckingham's sixth solo effort is truly that. Every plucked out note, vocal harmony, and capering electronic rhythm comes right from the hands of the 61-year-old musician. The former Fleetwood Mac singer's humility, his romantic ideals, and his search for understanding in a fractured world all play equal parts in these songs. The core of the album resides in a song like "End of Time," a jubilant tune that faces oblivion with acceptance and joy: "When we get to the other side/maybe there we'll make amends."
