What's up with the percussion flub at 0:14? Very annoying.

This is exactly how I'd describe it. Very toe-tapping indeed. I still don't like his penchant for weird vocals but it is pretty catchy.

Loving this one...

I do hear a female voice in the mix there over the choruses. I keep listening to it over and over and I think it just might be Christine but low in the mix.

Or am I hearing things?

It's a bright, upbeat piece. Not terribly distinctive, but pleasant.

As others already mentioned, it would have been MILES better with actual participation from Christine.

I am happy to have new music forthcoming, but am annoyed and disappointed that we appear to have waited three years for essentially five collaborative songs. All the press and all the interviews and hoopla suggested a more substantial pairing with these artists. It would not have been difficult to pay even minimum lip-service to this concept by layering in some Christine harmonies on the pre-recorded Lindsey material. So yeah, big WTF moment with all of this.

However, so far, the songs are very good as individual songs.

-The lead vocal is definitely different
-Other elements have definitely been rerecorded. This isn't just opening up an old demo and sticking on Christine/Mick/John.
-The bridge is really jarring but I'm sure I'll get used to it being there.
-It's still a great song that deserves to be heard more widely than the bonus track was
.
like you are reading my thoughts - exactly, all of this when i first heard it.

except too fast, i remember the original solo as a bit slow when i first heard it. i also thougt it's way too poppy for LB solo, and it was - that's why it didn't fit on SWS at all. but i just really loved the song even though some of the lazy lyrics annoyed me. still love it. love that his vocals are normal and not sped up or processed.

I just listened to all three songs back to back in the car and boy do they sound great together in context. Really good.

I'm pretty sure Christine is playing in the new bridge.

I'm very disappointed in all the songs I've heard so far. In My World is passable but the newest two...they sound so stale. I'm not sure why. Say You Will still sounds fresh to me, so I'm not sure if it's a production issue but these are really poor tracks.

Say you will was not that great sorry. Sleeping around the Corner is not stale sounding it's very catchy and has a lot of energy.

I agree a huge disappointment from what I was expecting .In My World is listenable Feel About You is an embarrassment across the boards.

Although this song sounds totally original and new, it's blah. Not really a fan of it. Totally forgettable.

The Buckingham McVie album is sounding very much like a Buckingham solo album with Christine guesting on some tracks. However, I very much like Lindsey's recent solo albums in particular, so for me this is a good thing.

Though, if this is what Lindsey wanted to do, then I could imagine how Stevie wouldn't want to be involved. I don't think she wants her songs done Lindsey solo-album style.

Playing 'In the Meantime' now. I'll play 'Seeds We Sow' next.

That is irritating, not sure why that wasn't fixed.

I do too, but I also hear a female voice on the SWS version.

Uh-oh. Get ready for a smack down.

I actually agree and also don't mind either.

Anyway, I wish someone could explain what it means to be sleeping around the corner...? What is that?

I'm just doing yoga in the next room.
I'm just washing in the shower.
I'm just driving in the car.
I'm just shopping in the mall.

What is the significance?

Also what is the meaning of corner? Like, in the room around the corner or in the house around the corner?

Maybe it's about Stevie!
