Stevie Nicks fans get more than a greatest hits album

Stevie Nicks fans get more than a greatest hits album with Timespace. They get an explanation.

In the liner notes, the ever-mysterious Nicks reveals, finally, where her biggest hits (and there are some outstanding ones) came from and what they mean. “Stand Back” is about a “crazy argument,” “Edge of Seventeen” is about the death of Nicks’ uncle, and “Has Anyone Ever Written Anything for You” was written to soothe the soul of Joe Walsh, who lost his 3-year-old-daughter in a car accident.

Casual listeners may not care, but the rabid fans of the bewitching Nicks can finally put meanings to her obscure lyrics.

In addition to the above, Timespace includes the stellar tracks “Talk to Me,” “If Anyone Falls,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” “Leather and Lace,” “I Can’t Wait,” “Rooms on Fire” and “Whole Lotta Trouble.”

Also included are three unemotional new songs — comparatively awful against these illustrious hits. Without the new tracks, Timespace would be a tremendous chronicle of an intriguing, distinct and important pop icon.
