Walter at his most wonderful
Review written by John Fitzgerald, August 22nd, 2004

One can easily hear how Lindsey Buckingham has influenced the production here as it's less ragged than "Fundamental roll" although it's got it's rockers like "Sweet south breeze" & "Make it alone", it seems clear that songs such as these Walter probably took charge of production as they sound like the best moments from his future recordings. Anyway, this is Walter's best outing with the irresistible hits "Magnet and steel" & "Hot summer nights" which deserved a higher chart placing than it got. It really is an anthem. Although "The blonde in the blue T-bird" is probably more known now by us more for the very early days of videos as it featured Stevie in the title role in the ultra rare clip, most songs are solid tunes. The uppity "Unloved" sounds to me like it could've been on "Buckingham Nicks" which was a great surprise and the beautiful yearning urgency of "Just the wanting" is my personal favorite. There's a perfect mix on this disc and it's a definite classic for the Mac cannon.
