Stevie Nicks' fourth solo album received more than its share of negative reviews from rock critics, who seemed to mistake her poetic and not always terribly discernible lyrics for pretentiousness. Although not as strong as Nicks' three previous solo dates, The Other Side of the Mirror is a decent album that has many more pluses than minuses. While there are a few less-than-memorable moments, some of the songs – including "Long Way to Go," "Ghosts," and "Whole Lotta Trouble" – are fairly strong. Nicks' more devoted followers will want this album, which should be purchased only if one already has Bella Donna, The Wild Heart, and Rock a Little.
Gothic and industrial superstars bring a whole new level of psychedelic spookiness to the songs of Pink Floyd, featuring performances by Nik Turner (of Hawkwind), Chrome, Psychic TV, Spahn Ranch and more!
Released in May 1989, it was recorded in Los Angeles, mixed in Buckinghamshire in England, and is loosely based around the theme of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The album reached #10 on the U.S. Billboard albums charts, propelled by the hit single, "Rooms on Fire" (No.16), and achieved platinum status for selling in excess of 1,000,000 units. The album reached #3 in the UK and was certified gold there for sales in excess of 100,000 units, and is Nicks' highest charting album to date in various European countries including Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
