Gift of Screws, Lindsey Buckingham’s fifth solo album, has been a long-gestating affair. Some of its material dates back to the nineties, and it was completely derailed when the singer-guitarist gave up tracks for Fleetwood Mac’s 2003 album, Say You Will. But it’s here now, and it feels totally complete, from the ominous opening track “Good Day” and the anthemic “Love Runs Deeper” to the rollicking title track. A pleasant surprise in the late stage of the legend’s career.
