(Review) Stevie Nicks "In Your Dreams" "finest solo album of her four-decade career"

US Magazine

Us Rating: ****

The gold dust woman hasn't faded one bit! At 62, iconic Fleetwood Mac frontwoman Stevie Nicks has turned out the finest solo album of her four-decade career. It's powered by her unmistakable, ageless vocals and intricate storytelling, from the enchanting first single "Secret Love" to the understated serenade "For What It’s Worth" (which mirrors her 1975 Mac classic "Landslide").

So the webmaster of this site just removes any posts that say anything that is not glowing praise for Stevie, whether it has any merit or not. How unbelievably childish of you. I have read this site daily for years now, but I will never again look at it. I am sure you will remove this too, but at least you will have read it yourself. My earlier review of the CD was agreed by the very next post, and I said nothing rude or abusive. But another post called me a tard and worse, and I now know you fall into that category. And you know where you can put this werbsite, sideways !

No the webmaster of this site knows when someone just wants to complain for attention. Sorry, your life sucks. Now, get out of here.

Anonymous 1: post your review again, but wait a day or 2 and listen to the album again. I don't know if your review was entirely negative or not but I do know that even if you are a REMOTE Stevie Fan, there is in no way that you can hate the entire album that much. Give it another chance and if your feelings are the same, post again.

I didn't say I hated the album. What I mostly did not like about it (and I did listen to the entire album before I wrote my comments, and have now listened to it a second time) was that I did not like Dave Stewart's production or Glen Ballard's recording.

I love Stevie and am happy if the professional reviews are good, and I hope it sells. But I do have the right to my own opinion, just as everyone else does. And sadly I do not love it. I don't think it stands up that well to any of her other solo albums or Fleetwood Mac albums. And I also said in my review that to anyone who does love, that's great.

I like the cd, and I have listened to it like 3 times. I can understand where Anonymous view of not liking the "production" comes from. Everything does sound very glossy and polished to a t. Still a great CD though.

Time will prove if this CD is actually one of her best. But I do absolutely love 3-4 of the tracks, and think some of her best work is found on this CD.
