Christine McVie is not in the business of pushing envelopes. And if the songs here sound like anagrams of others her pure, woody tones have crooned down the years, then that’s to be expected. On the other hand, just because she was one of the architects of a particularly popular strain of pop doesn’t mean she’s duty bound to pursue it forever. Maybe she’ll get around to other styles eventually. In the meantime, as one song has it: “Easy come, easy go, that’s just the way it is.” She’s in fine voice, sounds like she’s having a good time, and if her contributions to Fleetwood Mac are your favourites, you should investigate.
