Brief Introduction to Lindsey Buckingham and Out of the Cradle

"Out of the Cradle" is the brilliant 1992 solo album by American musician Lindsey Buckingham who is most famous for being involved with the band called Fleetwood Mac. Out of the Cradle represents his finest solo work having instrumental songs that are very short and start what is going to be a very enjoyable listen for fans of this man and in rock and roll in general. Out of the Cradle is not soft enough to be considered pop music but it can be considered American rock. It does not have the country style feel of a Chris Issak.

The solo effort by Lindsey was his first solo album after his departure from Fleetwood Mac and this is a great way to continue your solo career after departing from one of the most famous bands in the world.

Of the First Five Songs All My Sorrows Is the Best One

The album begins with a short instrumental introduction which sounds like some beautiful Spanish style guitar and then we are treated to the first full song called Don’t Look Down. I would even make the point that we can consider Lindsey Buckingham to be a sort of American cultural icon in a sense because of his brilliant rock guitar skills. He is a talent that makes me realize that he may be one of the biggest bright spots for the American musical scene. His talent is especially in display in the song called All My Sorrows. This beautiful song can serve as a reminder to all of us that money cannot buy true love but when your love has disappeared and gone away the feeling is especially painful. Is there something that troubles your mind? If so, this song may help to put some perspective on the situation.


Analysis of the Songs "Wrong" and "Countdown"

Out of the Cradle is such a great solo album that even the weaker songs such as Wrong are good as well. The song is about a man that does not know where he is going in his life and he has got everything wrong. Countdown is an energetic rock song about a person that knows that he or she is out of the lost and found or out of the bad zone of energy. He is waiting for the countdown that lets him know that his life is turning around and he is ready for a brand new, better life. When you are having a great time the time that you have seems to slip away and not matter very much at all.

Analysis of the Songs Soul Drifter, You Do Or You Don't, Street of Dreams, Surrender the Rain, and Turn It On

Soul Drifter is a song about someone that knows that he has to leave the town that he is in and start a fresh, new life. Life is about making decisions and sometimes it involves us thinking outside our comfort zone. You Do Or You Don’t is a song that can be thought of as trying to tell us that in life we either do something or we don’t. We either run or we hide from our problems or we have to face them. Street of Dreams is a nice song about someone that is paralyzed and overtaken by fear and he does not know where this street of dreams is going to take him to. Surrender the Rain is yet another terrific song in the career of Lindsey Buckingham. The song is basically about not running away from everything and surrendering to what really is in this present moment. As the quote goes: “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.” Turn it On is about realizing our true potential in life as we can reach for the sky and accomplish our biggest goals.

"All My Sorrows"

Out of the Cradle Ends With One of Lindsey Buckingham's Best Songs Ever!

After the Rodgers and Hammerstein song called This Nearly was Mine, the album ends with the brilliant song called Say We’ll Meet Again. When we are separated from the one that we love, we have to have the belief that we will share our dreams wit this person eventually. As the song says though nothing lasts forever so enjoy life while you can until you meet up with that person that you love. Be optimistic that you will meet that lover or that person again. This song is one of the best in the career of Lindsey Buckingham for sure! All of us will get old someday but we can still enjoy our life with the ones that we love!
