A monument on a beautiful foundation

All I can say is I knew I was going to buy this. As soon as I heard the acoustic version of Bella Donna, chills ran across my body. This beautiful soul has done it yet again and made what she already created years ago even better!

Classic Nicks Velvety Smooth Yet Tough as Nails

Even though all I've heard this far is Bella Donna, the demo is so amazingly beautiful. Her vocals are like pure heaven! Nobody has the talent this legend possesses.

'Bella Donna' has never sounded better

Ask any Stevie Nicks fan what her best solo album is, and it's generally going to come down between 'Bella Donna' and 'The Wild Heart'. There isn't much to say about the songs themselves that hasn't already been said, so my review is here to address the sound quality of the remasters. These two albums have never sounded better. Most of 'Bella Donna' and a large chunk of 'Wild Heart' previously turned up remastered on the 1998 box set 'Enchanted', and the 2007 greatest hits 'Crystal Visions', and while those were an improvement over the flat and treble-heavy sound of the original CD's, the results were boomy in the case of 'Enchanted', and maximized-to-death on 'Crystal Visions'. The remastering on these new 2016 deluxe releases are absolutely perfect: the right amount of low end has been used without overpowering the rest of the mix. This is the closest I've ever come to hearing a digital version of either of these albums that match the natural and crisp sound of the LP records. Amazing, amazing mastering work by Bill Inglot, Steve Woolard, and Dan Hersch.

*I will add, also, that while the demos were a mixed bag, the concert from 1981 added is not to be missed. Stevie's voice opens up with so much passion by the end of the show that you feel you're in the auditorium. One of the few live discs bunded with a remaster I have listened to and enjoyed thoroughly.
