Okay, it's not Rumours -- Fleetwood Mac's breakup masterpiece from 1977 -- but Stevie Nicks' seventh album, and first in a decade, suggests her mojo is still very much intact.
Her voice remains a thing of beauty -- fragile and tough, often in the course of the same song. And it's this quality that makes Secret Love shine. The lead single was reportedly demoed for the aforementioned Rumours, before being discarded.
Several of the songs have been co-written with Eurythmics' Dave Stewart and a handful are really quite something, including the rousing, emotive For What It's Worth.
