Swedish & Norwegian Reviews - Stevie Nicks 'In Your Dreams' "A Worthy Comeback"

Stevie Nicks "In Your Dreams" 3/5
by Markus Larsson

When reading Rolling Stone magazine, you get the impression Stevie Nicks first album in ten years is as good as Bella Donna (1981). Or at least as good as Tango in the night with Fleetwood Mac.

It is however many years since the reporters at Rolling Stone was something else than just ads for the multi record labels.

However, parts of Nicks new album is worthy. The (partly) 80s sound suites Nicks voice perfect, "Secret Love" shines and "Annabel Lee" is strongest track.

When Fleetwood Mac is so put on hold that even the bands home page is down, singer/songwriter Stevie Nicks takes the moment to release some really good music.

This makes me think of Emmylou Harris, Marianne Faithful, and even Edith Piaf.

Tracking down the magic from the past.

In a try to follow up on the debut Bella Donna, Stevie Nicks finest work so far: An endless cred list, guests from The Heartbreakers and Fleetwood Mac, chiffon and tulle, and a classic Nicks album cover. And producer Dave Stewart...

Unfortunately Stewart co-writes some of the songs on the album, which is stupid, his songs isn't even half as distinctive as Nicks' (like 35 year old "Secret love").

Despite Stewart, when this album is good, it's really good, "Soldiers Angel" should fit in just fine on "Tusk"

Best track: Soldiers Angel.

These reviews were translated... So they may sound a little disjointed.  And thank you to Anna for sending them in :)
