Rolling Stone (p.70) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "With its skewed pop melodies, home-brewed sonic trickery and blazing fingerpicking, UNDER THE SKIN is a mesmerizing return to the side of Buckingham that birthed the proto-indie-pop strangeness of 1979's TUSK."Rolling Stone (p.108) - Ranked #42 in Rolling Stone's "The Top 50 Albums Of 2006" -- "[T]he eccentricity of SKIN suits Buckingham's reflections on his past life and current blessings."Entertainment Weekly (p.70) - "His fingerpicking is impossibly frantic in its nervous virtuosity, and each near-whisper is miked to sound like a scream.
