Opening number, Sleeping Around the Corner, features a breathy and hazy sound for the intro and verses, but the chorus flips the song around straight into jangly pop-rock territory, highlighting Buckingham’s fingerstyle approach to his guitar playing. The track would feel right at home on a record from the ‘60s or ‘70s, as would the slightly quirky Feel About You. Lead single, In My World, juxtaposes a lush chorus, with a main riff that is anchored by a mild – yet still melodious – dissonance, and deftly demonstrates the pair’s skills at crafting engaging songs.
