Anyone looking for a US West Coast sugar-rush pop fix before the new Haim album lands could do a lot worse than wrapping their ears around a collection of songs co-written by two veteran members of Fleetwood Mac. With Mick Fleetwood and John McVie as the rhythm section, what we have here is actually a Fleetwood Mac album, minus Stevie Nicks.

Whatever about the line-up, the tunes are as you would imagine them to be: finely honed, soon-to-be classic pop songs (including Sleeping around the Corner, Game of Pretend, On with the Show, Red Sun) that wouldn’t be out of place at a Fleetwood Mac gig.

An evenly balanced duet album, with songwriting and vocal duties equally shared; prepare for very familiar music that you probably won’t get tired of listening to.
