    He concocts a series of dazzling interior epics with just a fingerpicked acoustic guitar and his echo-drenched voice. [Nov 2006, p.101]
  2. His hushed voice and intricate acoustic guitar work fill the space with reflective songs that sound little like anything he's done before.
  3. It is, thus far, his masterpiece, and as beautiful a pop record as can be made these days.
  4. It's the spartan-yet-gonzo sound of a guy remembering he can go his own way. [6 Oct 2006, p.70]
  5. As beguiling as much of Under the Skin is, these songs would benefit from the Mac’s supple, still-underrated rhythm section.

    The cover of "I am waiting" is possibly teh best cover version i've heard. And the rest of the tracks are excellent too. The man is a genius.

    The songs are very good, but I feel that it was a bad choice to have not re-recorded most of the songs. Most of the album was done at home by The songs are very good, but I feel that it was a bad choice to have not re-recorded most of the songs. Most of the album was done at home by Buckingham on a digital recorder except for 2 songs. The 2 songs recorded in the real studio with Rob Cavallo sound much more fully realized than the rest of the album. The title track is a beautiful song but the click track running through the whole song ruins it for me and drives me nuts! Full Review »
