(Review) Stevie Nicks 'In Your Dreams' "None of Nick’s lyrical intensity has left her, with a Nicksonian take on the whole vampire thing on Moonlight, A Vampire’s Dream"

Stevie Nicks – In Your Dreams
Reviews, By Augustus, 7th July, 2011

In Your Dreams is only Stevie Nick’s seventh solo studio album since the release of her highly successful solo debut, Bella Donna, in 1981. Then, Nicks had an enigmatic presence and somewhat ethereal style. She produced simultaneously haunting, fragile and hard-hitting melodies, with lyrics that often seemed more stream-of-consciousness than the musings of your everyday rock or pop artist.

Steve Nicks joined Fleetwood Mac in 1974, writing one of my all-time favourite lyrics on the track Dreams, which she performed on their 1977 album Rumours: players only love you when they’re playin’. It’s deceptively simple, but the more you think about it, the more you think about it.

Well, this was a pretty decent interview, but geez the media is mundane. They keep going on and on about her cocaine use back in the day. Everybody knows this. It was a hundred years ago. I remember back in the 80's everytime a new article came out the reporter would ask Stevie the same old question "So how did the song Rhiannon" come about...ugh This is our dull media folks I could think of a million things to ask her couldn't you?
