It's okay for me. I haven't listened to it enough, but I just don't seem to be able to get into it. I've been too busy listening to boots that have been posted on the net.

It's dull, light mallpop. Something one would likely hear while browsing the travel section at Waldenbooks. Half of the album is great fun, while the other half just gives off the impression that she shouldn't have bothered. It's inoffensive enough, but a whole album of it is just too damned much.

The production is incredibly bland; the middle tracks are especially filler. I don't listen to it very often. But she sounds great.

I really don't like it except for a few songs. I enjoy all of her FM songs and her 1984 solo album but In The Meantime is just too dull and bland for me.

Probably. Though I can't say for sure because I only listened to it once, which was the day it arrived in the mail.

Haven't had any desire to give it a second spin.

I think this is a question of expectations.

I expected typical Christine pop/rock for grown ups and that's what I got. The bonus was the voice which to me sounds better than ever.

I have to admit I had to listen to it a couple of times before I really started to like it. For Christine I was prepared to make the effort.

On the other hand I have only listened to Stevie's Trouble in Shangri La once because there wasn't enough in it to make me put it on again. For Stevie I wasn't prepared to make the effort.

As for Mick and John I didn't even buy the albums!

I still play ITM although not as much as I used to. I think it's a very honest piece of work and I like it more than her 1984 solo album.

What you said. Cept Stevie lost me earlier, on OSOTM. I LITERALLY(once even a huge fan) played it one time.


Still, imagine ITM's best 5 or 6 songs on SYW! THAT would've been an album I could've really gotten into!

I find it absolutely divine that it's the Christine fans on the Christine board who feel the need to bring up Nicks all the time.

I didn't bring it up, but I'll accept your claim of divinity.
