Editors’ Notes

Stevie Nicks’ second solo effort capitalizes on what was great about Bella Donna while also pushing her sound into new places. Tom Petty and his Heartbreakers guest on parts of the album, including the duet “I Will Run to You,” a worthy follow-up to “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.” Even as Nicks hews to conventional rock band arrangements, The Wild Heart also contains shades of synthesizer, especially on “Stand Back” and “If Anyone Falls,” songs with electronic arrangements that are surprisingly well-suited to Nicks’ raspy voice. Still, the album’s best moments are also its most straightforward. “Wild Heart” and “Enchanted” pair driving guitars and pianos with the sublime harmonies of Nicks and her longtime backup singers, Lori Perry and Sharon Celani. She sings about restless, passion-driven women the way Bob Dylan has sung about societal outcasts and Hank Williams about frustrated men. Even when she is revisiting old Mac ideas (“Nightbird” and “Sable On Blond” both echo “Dreams,” while “Gate and Garden” recalls “Sara”), Nicks remains as charismatic on record as she is on stage.

Customer Reviews

The Wild Heart

This is one of my all time favorite albums. While it echos and extends many of the themes on Bella Donna, it's faster paced, more dramatic. Stevie Nicks' voice here is at her prime; it is not the sweet, innocent sounding velvet and helium of "Gold Dust Woman," but rather the big sexy cat, calling out the lusciousness of love and life.

Synthnesized, Goth-rock, Classic!

I have to admit I love this album. When it came out, it was different than any other rock album out there. However, the reviewer got some things wrong about this album. This album sold two million copies in the United States, not one million copies (according to RIAA website). Also, this album was a huge departure for Stevie when it first came out—She replaced her country tinged sound with a synthnesized, goth rock sound. The album does contain three TOP 40 hits, Stand Back, If Anyone Falls and Nightbird but it also contains one of her most beloved ballads ever, Beauty and the Beast. Not to mention, other great songs such as Enchanted, Gate and Garden and the The Wild Heart and her most underrated song ever—Sable on Blond, which is Stevie Nicks at her sensual, goth rock best. The whole album is terrific. Best tracks Nightbird, Beauty and Beast, Sable on Blond and Stand Back.

One Of Her Best

This is very worthy follow-up to the classic BELLA DONNA. In addition to the mega-hit "Stand Back" and "If Anyone Falls", there are several hidden gems on this record, including the wonderful title track, "Enchanted" and "I Will Run To You" another standout duet with Tom Petty. Highly recommended.
