Review: Stevie Nicks – Other Side of the Mirror

(Modern/Atlantic)

** (2 stars out of 5)

Other Side of the Mirror is Nicks’ first solo album in more than three years and follows her three successive solo platinum releases away from the confines of Fleetwood Mac. Don’t look for many new sounds here. Nicks has finally slipped away into a world of darkness and candles, eerie pop and flirtations with rock ‘n’ roll. A tough voice and wild hair can take an artist only so far, and Nicks never gets much farther on this album.

Nevertheless, “Rooms On Fire” and “Two Kinds of Love,” a duet with Bruce Hornsby, no doubt will make their way up the charts-they’re pure sellers, not music. In all, a disappointing sound-alike with no new ground broken.
