Rock's reigning queen Stevie Nicks

" is also No. 3 on Billboard's Rock Album Chart and the No. 7 best selling digital album. Nicks' new CD is receiving glowing reviews including US Magazine who claimed "'In Your Dreams' is Nicks' 'finest solo album of her four decade career.'"
According to Billboard, "In Your Dreams" is Nicks' fifth top 10 solo album following her No. 1 debut "Bella Donna" (1981), "The Wild Heart" (No. 5 1983), "The Other Side of the Mirror" (No. 10, 1989) and "Trouble in Shangri-La" (No. 5, 2001).

In the same week "In Your Dreams" debuted, Fleetwood Mac's landmark "Rumours" album released 34 years ago re-entered the chart at No. 11 thanks to the exposure from the May 3rd episode of Fox TV's "Glee" which dedicated its entire hour to the album. "Rumours" sold 29,500 copies (up 1954% from the previous week).
Nicks is currently on tour. A complete itinerary is below.
"In Your Dreams" was written and recorded at Nicks' Los Angeles home and is co-produced by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard... Nicks and Stewart co-wrote seven of the album's thirteen songs. Highlights of the album include "Soldier's Angel," a poignant tribute to the vets that Nicks has visited over the years at Walter Reade and Bethesda Naval Hospital. The song includes a guest appearance by fellow Mac member Lindsay Buckingham.
