Stevie Nicks: In Your Dreams

At 63, Stevie Nicks is as charismatic and mysterious as ever in her new album In Your Dreams.

The "search for love that might work" Nicks - still charismatic at almost 63 - refers to here seems to précis something of her own life, but Fleetwood Mac's self-styled "Welsh Witch" is still adept at turning mysterious diary entries into potent songs.

Witness Everybody Loves You, replete with "Iberian noir" intro and an airy, indelible chorus co-voiced by the former Eurhythmic, Dave Stewart. Nicks, Stewart and the Alanis Morissette collaborator Glen Ballard co-produce here, while guests include Nicks's Mac bandmates Mick Fleetwood and Lindsey Buckingham.

For What It's Worth - co-penned with Tom Petty's right-hand man Mike Campbell - also shines.
