Naturally some people like things others don't. That's why I put "IMO", because that's what it is, my opinion; However, I don't know how anyone can listen to "Blue Water" or "The Dealer" on 24K Gold, vs. the old demo of it and prefer to have rerecorded demos over remastered old ones. Again, IMO.

The title track and She Loves Him Still are my favorites. Mabel Normand, Cathouse Blues and Belle Fleur are alright.

I like the ones you listed, along with the song with the line "ladies of the canyon" (I forgot the title).

One of the tracks on 24 Karat If You Were My Love is the worst thing I've ever heard on a Stevie Nicks solo album. It was a cool song when Fleetwood Mac tracked it for Mirage. But this one is pure stunk. The vocal sounds like something on its last legs, or maybe something that has already expired, dragged along the ground behind a body wagon during the Plague. The music wobbles back and forth between a tonic and a second, but literally never resolves. It gives you the sense of being trapped in a sound nightmare when your brain can't think of an ending. Not the sort of thing you'd put to an abysmally slow tempo, but that's what they did here. It's like watching a tortoise walk. Unbelievably bad judgment. Did they release this as a terrible in-joke, or was everyone in the room too afraid to say how bad it was? Is it the first song in history to be included by dint of embarrassed silence?

I absolutely love "If you were my love" from 22kg. I think it's beautiful

Me too, favorite from the album! So sad and beautiful in a mysterious Stevie ballad way.

I agree with you 100% on this. One of the worst things she's ever recorded. it's painful to listen to...and then she did it live, and the live version was no better.

Wow. I thought IYWML was the highlight of the show. Maybe you just don't like "slow" songs in general?

Are there any Stevie ballads you like or is it all midtempo stuff?

I'm still hoping she puts the re-recorded Gypsy on iTunes or Amazon. I would love to hear it in full and add to my collection!
