★★★★ At­lantic Any­one look­ing for a US West Coast su­gar-rush pop fix be­fore the new Haim al­bum lands could do a lot worse than wrap­ping their ears around a col­lec­tion of songs co-writ­ten by two vet­eran mem­bers of Fleet­wood Mac. With Mick Fleet­wood and John McVie as the rhythm sec­tion, what we have here is ac­tu­ally a Fleet­wood Mac al­bum, mi­nus Ste­vie Nicks. What­ever about the line-up, the tunes are as you would imag­ine them to be: finely honed, soon-to-be clas­sic pop songs (in­clud­ing Sleep­ing around the Cor­ner, Game of Pre­tend, On with the Show, Red Sun) that wouldn’t be out of place at a Fleet­wood Mac gig. An evenly bal­anced duet al­bum, with song­writ­ing and vo­cal du­ties equally shared; pre­pare for very fa­mil­iar mu­sic that you prob­a­bly won’t get tired of lis­ten­ing to. buck­ing­hamm­ TONY CLAY­TON-LEA
