CD Reviews: Stevie Nicks

For all the guys who fantasised about being with her and the girls who wanted to be her, Stevie Nicks is back to her best with an album of new tracks that could have been plucked from the '70s and '80s.

After the theft of demos from her house, Nicks put Dave Stewart in the producer's chair and with a host of rock legends reworked the previously unheard tracks.

24 Karat Gold is so laden with gems it seems absurd only to hear them now.

Stewart stays faithful to a hazy vibe synonymous with Nicks' sultry huskiness, as Stevie reels back her years of romantic misfortune.
