Release Date: May 3

Stevie Nicks has grown anything but rusty in the 10 years since her last solo studio album, Trouble in Shangri-La. In fact, the interim–marked by a Fleetwood Mac set and some touring—even appears to have been restorative upon listening to Nicks’ newest release, “In Your Dreams,” Produced in large part by the Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart, the album finds her in nothing less than prime form, drawing rich character studies and essaying on the deep rigors of relationships in clear, plain-spoken fashion, Stewart co-wrote seven of the 13 songs, sings on two and pushed Nicks in some new directions, such as the blues on “Soldier’s Angel” (with Lindsey Buckingham). She rocks it up on the title track and “Ghosts Are Gone,” while Stewart fuses a stringladen, post-Beatles ambience into “Everybody Loves You,” “Italian Summer” and the lengthy Edgar Allan Poe adaptation “Annabel Lee.” And tracks like the single “Secret Love,” “For What It’s Worth” and “New Orleans” are strong enough to stand alongside Nicks’ best work, both solo and with Fleetwood Mac.—GG
