Take her back to the other side...please!
Review written by Jon the Moonspinner, February 17th, 2010

On "Alice", which facetiously calls up Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland", Stevie Nicks firmly asserts: "'All right' said Alice...I'm going back to the other side of the mirror!" And Stevie should have followed closely behind her. Having spent too time in a bewitching world of tales and talismans has hurt Stevie's stories. She still works wonders with a wooden arrangement or balky melody, but it's her poetry here which gets her into trouble. Nothing on the fanciful side of this "Mirror" is really gripping, while the production keeps all the tracks in a swarthy-gothic key. "Rooms On Fire" gets better with repeated listens, but Stevie just isn't living in the present day here. Those 'crystal visions' have taken over, and zapped her of any real fire.

This time the house landed on the good witch
Review written by Anonymous, August 14th, 2004

So what do you do when your previous album (Rock a Little) is an utter disater? Why, turn in an equally flawed effort of course. Granted, Rock a Little was a commercial success, it got scathing reviews and rightfully so. The synths are a mistake!! Stop using them! You are a ROCK star not a POP star. Having just come out of rehab one would think that she would have some interesting things to talk about. Not quite. The album finds her drained and she resorts to singing a handful of other people's songs. Not a wise move considering the songs she chose to cover are pop schlock that should have been given to Debbie Harry or some other rock chick. The songs she did write are near awful. "Escape from Berlin" talks about her drug days but the music is just too bland. "Cry Wolf" is a song which she did not write but she sings well on it. The only worth while song is "Whole Lotta Trouble" it is nice to hear her cut loose and wail. Why didn't she do that for the whole album? Why? Thankfully her legendary rock status was already secured by this time.

Stevie's magic album...
Review written by Anonymous, August 14th, 2004

This is truely a magical album. Stevie's voice just sounds great. Especially compared to her vocals on 1985's "Rock A Little" and Fleetwood Mac's 1987 album "Tango In The Night" (both excellent albums, highly recommended! Anyway...) Stevie really got her act together for this album. Great songs and great production. "Rooms On Fire" is a just a great song, but is one of her forgotten hits. "Long Way To Go" is an angry hard rocker, "Two Kinds Of Love" is a boring ballad though, with Stevie dueting with Bruce Hornsby. "Ooh My Love" is obviously one of the highlights, if not the hightlight, of this album. Such a tragic song and that closing line of the song "No one can take you away from me, no...no one..." will just send chills up and down your spine! "Ghosts" is true and "Whole Lotta Trouble" is an awesome song and showcases Stevie with a serious dose of attitude. "Fire Burning" is a catchy little number and "Cry Wolf" is one of the album's downpoints. "Alice" is great and goes along with that famous tale about the girl through the other side of the mirror. "Juliet" is also catchy and Stevie just cuts loose. "Doing The Best I Can" is a moody song about her drug problems and "I Still Miss Someone" is a poignant cover and Stevie almost makes it her own. I love how she recorded this in a castle, and you can kind of tell with the way that the songs' echo. This album transports you to a castle of your own. But, one of the mistakes Stevie did was to let Kenny G drown two of the songs ("Two Kinds Of Love" which was already bad enough, and the magnificent "Alice") in terrible, adult-contemporary-like, sleepy saxophone. But, with that aside, this is Stevie's most emotional, and creative album. A stellar album from Stevie!
