Marvelous comeback album...Stevie's solo triumph
Review written by Jon the Moonspinner, February 18th, 2010

"Bella Donna" was too tentative, "The Wild Heart" was too windy and glossy, "Rock a Little" stalled early, "The Other Side of the Mirror" was ego and (possibly) drug-fueled, and "Street Angel" danced familiar steps. Where could Stevie Nicks go from there? Surprisingly, she has chosen to soar, making bright and beguiling new music from a collection of lyrics which are intermittently dreamy and substantial. From the fiery title-themed opener to the cover of her own "Sorcerer" (sung by Marilyn Martin on "Streets of Fire") to the jubilant "That Made Me Stronger", Stevie comes back to life on "Shangri-La", and you can feel her enthusiasm for this music--she loves it as much as her fans do. BEST: Trouble in Shangri-La, Sorcerer, Too far From Texas, That Made Me Stronger, I Miss You.

Review written by Randy Heaps, August 27th, 2008

It's flawless...i don't know what else i can say about it. Flawless.

One of her best since Time Space
Review written by Gail Hickey, July 14th, 2005

Stevies album Trouble in shangri-la is another great album since Timespace the only track that I would say that isn't so great is track number 12.

    Comments »

Every terminally pampered rock star should have a realization like the one Stevie Nicks describes in "That Made Me Stronger." A chronicle of the steps Nicks took to make "Trouble in Shangri-la", her first album since 1994, the song centers around a typical rich- person approach to problem solving: her first thought was to hire others to help with the song writing. The chorus tells of one conversation (in interviews, she's said it was with Tom Petty) in which the queen of the gold dust demimonde wheedles & begs: "Well, you know me better than I know myself, could you write this for me?". The response, snapped out over a banging J. Geils-ish rhythm guitar: "No, you write your songs yourself." The lesson: "That made me stronger, that made me hold on to me."

Good thing too. Because unlike other legends in her tax bracket, Nicks actually has something to say for herself after all these years. She's been thinking about the ways her identity has been sacrificed to (or subsumed by) love, about the illusions she's held & shed. She's put those ideas down in plain words & plaintive melodies, devised song structures that rely on genuine hooks & unusual interludes & concocted a crafty update of California pop, shot through with the insights & ravings of a sometimes-lonely desert mystic.

Still, the disciplined songs of "Trouble" occasionally scream "Warning! Career Rehabilitation in Progress!" There are the inevitable trips back to past glories (most odiously the title track, which sounds like a computer-generated composite of previous Nicks Hits), & musical elements transplanted from her bellowing Eighties arena songs. There are contributions from present-day disciples (Macy Gray, Sarah McLachlan) & a big helping of Sheryl Crow, who co-wrote several songs & produced five gems, including the ethereal "Sorcerer", a gorgeous reverie that recalls the contemplative mood Nicks first explored in the pre-Fleetwood Mac days of Buckingham/Nicks.

Mostly, there is a wise woman with a wickeder-than-ever voice who admits to being "something of a dreamer". Though she's suffered scorn for that cosmic mumbo-jumbo that helped make her famous, Nicks won't back down: One of Trouble's wondrous songs, "Planets of the Universe", expresses worry about global warming in disarmingly eloquent terms.

Still, most of the songs are about earthly love & devotion, & that's where her artistic growth is inescapable. Having once accepted such polarized Venus/Mars definitions of love as "give to me your leather, take from me my lace", Nicks has discovered a whole realm of nuance: she effortlessly expresses awe ("Everyday") & regret ("I Miss You") & with the whispery "Its Only Love" captures relationship tumult with the kind of hushed phrases and feathery touches that often escaped her back when.

She closes "That Made Me Stronger" by repeating the mantra "I don't want to go back & nothing you can say can change my mind" & even though its just an ordinary pop vow, you hear the conviction in her voice, & you believe her. Because it sounds like she understands that she has no other choice. (Revolver, May/June 2001)

"I am something of a dream," Stevie Nicks sings on "Candlebright," the mandolin-driven second song on her excellent new album, Trouble in Shangri-La. Has a major artist ever made so self-evident a statement? Spinning highly charged fables of latter-day lords and ladies, dream weaver Nicks plays the resigned but ever hopeful fairy princess waiting for some gallant hero to sweep her off her feet. The sobering accumulation of life experiences by the former Fleetwood Mac chanteuse, combined with the gauzy mysticism that has been her hallmark since she twirled herself dizzy to "Rhiannon," makes for an attractively ripe set of songs, her first new collection since the largely forgotten Street Angel in 1994. Nicks has never sounded more grounded or passionate than on Shangri-La, which is her best and most varied work as a solo artist. The title track has an urgent propulsion reminiscent of "Edge of Seventeen," albeit with a more adult outlook, while "Fall From Grace" is a galloping, intense rocker that would be impressive for an artist of any age, especially one on the edge of 53. While the fire is entirely of Nicks' making, she's joined by eager acolytes like Sheryl Crow, who coproduced and plays on five songs. These include the eloquent "Sorcerer"--listen to Nicks' brief, angelic ascent into falsetto--which is as lyrically and musically concise as her work with ex-partner Lindsey Buckingham (think "Landslide") in Fleetwood Mac. R&B singer Macy Gray adds soulful spice to "Bombay Sapphires," and Natalie Maines (of the Dixie Chicks) imparts twang to the countrified lover's lament "Too Far From Texas," an earthy departure for Nicks. Mainly, though, Shangri-La is a triumph of resurgent creativity and a profoundly gusty second wind. *** 1/2 (Three and half stars) Nicks is back, at her bewitching best. (Parke Puterbaugh, US Weekly, May 7-14, 2001)

Nicks' first solo set in five years positions the rock legend as this year's comeback equivalent to Carlos Santana. Offering her strongest material since her 1982 landmark, Bella Donna, Nicks is radiant as she vamps through guitar-charged rockers that deftly balance her signature poetry with sticky pop hooks. While much ado will be made of the glittery guests on Shangri-La -- including Sheryl Crow (who also produced five cuts), Macy Gray, Sarah McLachlan, and Natalie Maines of Dixie Chicks -- none pulls the listener's ear away from Nicks. Rather, they quietly compliment her, seemingly approaching the set as fans paying homage. Radio programmers are embracing the fine first two singles, "Planets of the Universe" and "Every Day," although there are even better tunes: the white-knuckled anthem "Fall From Frace," the sweetly introspective "It's Only Love," and the elegant, piano-laced ballad "Love Is." A stellar return for a true rock original." (Billboard Magazine, May 5, 2001)

"Fleetwood Mac chanteuse Stevie Nicks takes flight once again. Slipping into those high heel stilettos and batwing sleeves, Nicks reclaims her rightful place as rock enchantress on Trouble in Shangri-La (her first solo album since her rather haphazard 1994 affair, Street Angel). Nicks has forgone most of her witchy-woman trappings and chosen to construct her own little Lilith Fair, recruiting Macy Gray, Sheryl Crow, Sarah McLachlan and Dixie Chick Natalie Maines to back her up. Dipping into uncharacteristic, straightforward musings unlike anything she's done before, Nicks experiments with rockabilly at times and shashays around this disc with much aplomb, humor and self-awareness, finally growing into her throaty growl at age 53. A track like "Fall from Grace" doesn't pull any punches either, chronicling Nicks' own public humiliations without shame, proving that, even though there may be trouble, there's a happy place for everyone."
