Default In Your Dreams 10th anniversary

Ten years since IYD was released May 3 2011. Not my favourite but a new Stevie album was a nice surprise after ten years of rehashes like Crystal Visions and Soundstage.

So many release anniversaries I guess next up will be 24 K's 7th. Like most releases I really enjoyed In Your Dreams when it came out in fact I loved it. Annbelle Lee was a favourite along with Moonlight, I really dug the new chorus. Also loved the title track, New Orleans for the "brush by" wistful notes, You May be the One and Soldiers Angel. In hindsight now, all songs needed some editing with the exception of Secret Love and In Your Dreams. Editing is a sign of strength as an artist not a weakness as Stevie believes. These songs lose momentum because of the length. For What It's Worth at about 3 minutes length would've been a really memorable song. Also, I don't think Stewart was the best choice for producer. This album was crying out loud, trying to believe that Jimmy Iovine would be interested. He would've made these songs much tighter, and closer to the "Rumours" vibe she was looking for. Vocally, mostly good with some technological de-goating here and there, but most artists do that so really no big deal.

This is the album Stevie is most proud of, right?

Soldier's Angel is on it. She said 2010 was the best year of her life. She toured from May 2011 to Fall 2012 to promote the album.

It's interesting that the IYD era began with a tour where she opened for Rod Stewart. I did like that she opened her set with two songs most didn't know: FFG and then Secret Love. It's too bad Italian Summer didn't become the closing ballad those years. Could've been nice on piano.
