Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

As one half of Fleetwood Mac's twin female leads, Stevie Nicks is possessed of one its most distinctive voices. Trouble in Shangri La, her first solo album since 1994s Street Angel, demonstrates Nicks has lost none of her flair for penning richly textured baroque-flavoured folkrock. Despite the presence of former paramour Lindsey Buckingham on the dreamy ballad "I Miss You", a duet with Sarah McLachlan, a guest appearance from Macy Gray (on the iridescent "Bombay Sapphires") and diverse contributions from Sheryl Crow who acts as sounding board, co-producer for five tracks and contributes one song, "It's Only Love", this is very much Nicks's work, a labour of love that she spent the best part of five years on. Polished and burnished to a lacquered sheen, songs like "Planets Of The Universe" glow like embers while Nicks's aching world-weary lyricism frames the tableau. --Mike Pattenden

5.0 out of 5 stars A Huge Return To Form.Spellbinding 30 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD marks the first new album since the 1994 album Street Angel.Whilst that album was something of a disapointment to Stevies many fans this album will not disappoint anyone.
The album is quite simply perfect from the opening notes of the title track to the haunting closing strings of the final track Love Is.Stevie has worked with Sheryl Crow on this album and Sheryls guitar driven music is evident although at no time does it overpower the feeling of this album.
Stand out tracks are the title track Trouble In Shangri La,Planets of the Universe,Every Day.Too Far from Texas,Its Only Love,I Miss you and Love Is.
The album features guest vocals from Sheryl Crow,the Dixie Chicks very own Natalie Maines,Macy Gray and on the closing track Sarah McLachlan..Each guest artist adds their own touch to this amazing album and the album is enriched by their presence but this is without a doubt a Stevie Nicks record.
This is the finest album Stevie has made since Bella Donna.To not own this album would be a crime.This record could do for Stevie Nicks what Supernatural did for Carlos Santana.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Candlebright Sorceress of Shangri-La 16 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
As someone who grew up on Fleetwood Mac, but only discovered the wonder that is Stevie's solo work in 1999, I had to buy this as soon as it was released. I pretty much saturated myself in this album for a month. In the last 5 years I have frequently come back to it, but only now feel I know it well enough to review it.

As all Stevie fans will know, she herself was somewhat disapointed with 1994's "Street Angel". Having suffered stinging reviews from critics, both for the album and the ensuing tour, her confidence was badly dented. Then along came Clinton's election campaign, and "The Dance". Realising her fans had not deserted her, and being a prolific songwriter, it was time for a new album.

I will say now that the two tracks that never did it for me are 'Everyday' and 'Too Far from Texas'. Personally, I don't think either of these show her voice as it should be, and I find 'Too Far from Texas' somewhat droney, so it would not be fair for me to review them.

But to the album:

We open with the wonderful 'TROUBLE IN SHANGRI-LA', a song that seems to build like a rising wind ("in pillars of colour"). It's gentle, then it rocks, briefly comes back down again, then the drums kick and it rocks out!

'CANDLEBRIGHT' originated as a song from the Buckingham Nicks days called 'Nomad'. It has a mystical & early 1970's feel (makes me think of Christine McVie's 'Say You Love Me').

'SORCERER' had its debut in the Buckingham Nicks live performances of 1973/74. It emerged again in a rock-ballad form in 1984 on the soundtrack to 'Streets of Fire', performed by Marylin Martin with Stevie singing backing. There are hints of 'Rhiannon', 'Enchanted' & 'Blue Denim' in there. It's an upbeat rock song - think 'Angel'!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stevie's Best Solo-work by far 12 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Although I'm a long-time Stevie fan, Stevie's best work has always genrally been with Fleetwood Mac, where she had the production genius of Lindsey Buckingham to give her songs the eclectic treatment they required. In comparison, her solo-albums to me have always sounded under-produced and her vocals under-rehearsed (there have been some excellent solo songs). Stevie's vocal problems have also been a source of concern. Trouble in Shangri-La is the solo album I've been waiting for, a reaffimation of everything that is great about Stevie, great melodies, poetic lyrics and distinctive vocals. Stevie's voice is deeper than it was, but it remains completely distinctive and effective and she shows the kind of range and energy that she hasn't shown in years.
There are a number of excellent songs - personal favourites being the hard-rock of "Fall from Grace", the heartbreaking ballad "Love Is", the pop of "Love Changes" and long-time Stevie fans will be glad to hear that Stevie's trademark mysticism remains intact on "Candlebright" and "Sorceror".
A real treat, and my favourite album of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's Back! 19 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
OK - this album's not going to win any prizes for innovation/breaking new ground - it's not intended to - but, if you want to hear a great artist doing what she does best, you've got to hear it. Often, a roster of star names is a sign of a lack of inspiration (something Stevie alludes to on 'That Made Me Stronger', but this is no sinecure for VIP session-players - they're all totally committed to the project.
There's the usual mix of love, loss and mysticism that is Ms Nicks's trademark. As the title suggests, the wreckage of shattered dreams is strewn across the album. Superstars fretting about the price of fame might not always be endearing, but Stevie always sings from the heart, there's no artifice, and no angling for the sympathy vote.
'Trouble in Shangri-La' kicks the set off in classic Mac style - broken promises and broken relationships in counter-point to the life-affirming feel of the chorus. It's a trick she plays to killing effect on 'Sorceror', as she sings "in my misery" while moving up the register to cut you in two. Tired, thirsty (for love) and world weary, she sings: "All around black ink darkness . . . Timeless in your finery/it's a high price/for your luxury" - then you see that this (like 'Candlebright') was written thirty years ago, in her pre-Mac days - she saw it coming!
Although Lindsay Buckingham only contributes to one track, his ghost permeates the whole album, lyrically and musically - cf. the guitar break in 'Planets of the Universe', which teases us with a 'Rhiannon'-style guitar figure opening. Written in '79 this would sit happily on 'Tusk'. 'Everyday' boasts an FM-friendly hook, undercut by the lyric: "I close my eyes, that gives me hope/it cures the silence".
