My review of "In the Meantime" [Oct. 5th, 2004|09:03 pm]

While it was a fine -- if overlong -- comeback, many Feetwood Mac fans were left high and dry when longtime keyboardist/vocalist Christine McVie chose not to return to the fold for 2003’s Say You Will. In her absence, the group’s musical balance shifted toward the high-flown stylings of legendary bandmates Lindsey Buckingham and Steve Nicks. While the yang of rock-diva lyrical flourishes and crazed distortion guitar most certainly has its place, things weren’t the same without McVie’s calming yin.

Nevertheless, Christine’s choice was made, and speculations flew. Had she lost her voice? Perhaps she’d grown sick of the music business? Could it be that her songwriting well had finally run dry? Thankfully, In the Meantime proves these guesses largely incorrect. Granting that the frequency of her releases -- the previous solo album having hit stores in 1984 -- may reflect a somewhat chilled opinion of the recording biz, McVie’s refined vocalization, solid playing and formidable composition skill remain intact.

Press releases have touted the album as a low-key, low-production affair, but one listen proves that the sound isn’t anywhere near as unpleasantly spare as those descriptors would imply. The foundations laid by McVie are nicely built upon by embellishing tracks from a small crew of studio players. The additional instrumentation improves the overall sound of the songs without demolishing the intended feel of intimacy; the extra musicians aren’t big names (the most prominent is McVie’s own nephew) and their subtle playing keeps the focus on Christine.

Seeing as In the Meantime’s songs are just as satisfying as anything she ever performed under the ’Mac, it’s a shame none of them appeared on Say You Will. That album contains enough filler that it seems as though the remaining members were trying to cover for the semi-retired Christine McVie. As this latest solo venture shows, she hasn’t used the lack of an illustrious surrounding band as an excuse to stem her creative flow.

To all my fellow Christine Lovers:
Let me say that although I am an avid Stevie fan, I do admit that Christine has a much better voice, and more a knack for writing the "pop" songs. I love Christine's music just as much as Stevies.

My question...Did Christine have some work done? She looks amazing on her new CD cover...she looks younger than she did on The Dance....what do y'all think?

I know everyone's probably aware of this, but Chris' site is up in detail now. I'm listening to the samples, and they sound fantastic! Definitely going to buy this album (not like I wasn't, anyhow, but still).

A few tidbits. [May. 3rd, 2004|02:56 am]

Oooh, good jorb, rwhip923. Have a trophy.

I'm particularly excited about the new album, as I happen to like it when Christine gets angry ('I'm The One' is one of my favorite solo!Chris songs). I just wish she'd do some classic-style blues songs this time around.

Do you think we'll get a higher res copy of the cover soon? I'm not too into the blowups we've seen so far.
