Seeds We Sow is delightfully ragged. That said, its gorgeous melody and lyrics, carried by layers of voices and guitars, create a blissed-out love song. It passes for a big, explosive rocker on this set, full of Buckingham's knotty Baroque pop touches, but it's a very basic production.
Buckingham's lyric understands that they are all too human; long after they end, they pick at our emotional scabs. His multi-layered acoustic guitars and harmonies act as other voices, empathically reflecting back to us the haunting regret and desire for redemption in the middle of the night. It may be about karma, but it feels like a guttersnipe Fleetwood Mac delivering a pop song. Lindsey Buckingham.

This s rock album—related article is a stub. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. On his vibrant, luminous new solo album, Seeds We Sow, the musician takes the DIY approach one step further: producing, engineering, singing and playing every instrument on all but one track.
He's even releasing the record himself. It's very meditative, much like painting. People who paint are usually pretty isolated. It's a solitary pursuit, but it lets you get one-on-one with your canvas. Seeds We Sow is Buckingham's sixth solo album, and true to form, it's a compelling, wholly original rendering of shadows and light, cries and whispers. Whether pensive or blissed-out, rocking impulsively or examining the human spirit, the guitarist fuses his irrepressible, idiosyncratic songcraft with waves of breathtaking vocals and luxurious, fingerpicked guitar patterns into something that's become a rarity in modern music: a sublime, top-to-bottom, soul-nourishing experience.
In addition, the Rock Hall Of Famer talked about his approach to guitar playing, the advantages of home recording, loving The Rolling Stones, his work with Fleetwood Mac expect to hear from them in ! By the way, be sure to check out the exclusive video on page two, during which Buckingham expounds on the recording of Seeds We Sow and takes us on stage and backstage during a performance.
In much the same way that great method actors don't "act," but rather they "behave," your work on Seeds We Sow goes beyond craftsmanship.
If you're doing that, you might not be doing your job. Over the years that I've been doing this, and particularly since I started making solo records with greater frequency, I've looked into whatever my center is, which is the guitar, and I've looked into the emotional side of that, as well. That's really the idea: touching on what's essential, both musically and lyrically. All of that fits into what you're saying. You've had a home studio for many years now.
What are some recent changes you've made to your setup? I still have an old, unautomated console that I got in the late '80s. And I still do a lot of work on an old, reel-to-reel digital machine. I just love the VSO. I do have Pro Tools, but they seem to come later in the process. What happens is, you find a way that works for you, and at that point… You know, there's an adage that would apply here: 'It ain't what you got, it's what you're doing with what you got.
You've covered them in the past. I wanted Mick to do something like Street Fighting Man, and he put his own thing to it. But that's right, exactly. So besides the obvious - that they're a great band - what is it that you like about the Stones so much? He was starting to bring in European sensibilities that kind of balanced out the Chuck Berry-isms of Keith.
I always thought there were a lot of undiscovered gems on albums like Aftermath and Between The Buttons. She Smiled Sweetly was the only thing I had recorded previously; it had sitting around for a while, waiting to find a home. It seemed somehow appropriate to end the album with it.
It turned out pretty nice. Conversely, would you have joined the Stones had the situated presented itself? Hmmm, well, that's sort of an odd thing for Stevie to say, too. I guess she was just looking at bands she likes. The Stones…uh, sure! They have a raw, primitive approach to music, and I relate to that - I'm kind of a refined primitive myself, having never been taught music.
