Editorial Reviews

The Second Solo Album from the Former Jefferson Airplane/Starship Vocalist was Recorded after She Dried Out in Rehab to Rid Herself of Accumulated Vices Over the Years. The Resulting Music was Not as Obtuse Or Adventurous as her Audiences Had Come to Expect from the Wild Woman of Rock, but She Rocked it Out Nonetheless on "Full Moon Man", "Seasons" and the Title Track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Slick February 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Why aren't any of Grace Slick's solo albums available on CD in this country? "Manhole" and "Dreams" are available as imports, but "Software" and "Welcome to the Wrecking Ball" aren't available at all. Pity.
Grace herself detests every one of her solo albums but this one. She feels that, due to her lack of interest in them, they all failed. But she calls this one the best of her solo efforts. And, as one who has heard and appreciates each of them for what they are, "Dreams" is her best. I'll probably be tarred and feathered for this, but I think this is the best recording her voice was ever on. Don't get me wrong, I love Jefferson Airplane, I love early Jefferson Starship, but there's just something about this album...
I like the fact that this album is kind of an amalgam of all different styles. We have Spanish music on "El Diablo," metal on "Angel of Night," arena-rock-power-ballads like "Full Moon Man" and "Face to the Wind," the world music-influenced "Seasons," and the bluesy "Do It the Hard Way." On almost every cut Grace and her band are backed by a full orchestra. She also wrote & composed over half of this album by herself. Trust me, if you are a fan of Grace's at all, or if you're new to the wonderful world of the Airplane/Starship oeuvre, you cannot go wrong with this album. Stand-out cuts: "Dreams," "El Diablo," "Angel of Night," "Full Moon Man," "Let It Go."

5.0 out of 5 stars Long time waiting March 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
After owning this album in the 1980's I thought it would never be released on CD.

When I found it for sale I instantly purchased it, but with intrepidation, because it had been over 10 years since I heard it.

Well it doesn't dissapoint, all the tracks sound great & you wouldn't know it is a 20 year old album.

What a great voice Grace has, she could put a few modern day "singers" to shame.

Go on Treat yourselves to a timeless CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slick masterpiece~Bravo Grace!!! May 6, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"I believe in magic And I still believe in Dreams" sung with haunting definance by a soulful Grace Slick in stunning opener "Dreams", brilliant collection of great songs with wondrous vocals, all beautifully orchestrated and arranged to perfection. Majestic guitars surround Grace in exotic "El Diablo", flowing gem is rich & complex becoming a breathtaking listening experience...get ready for the musical journey of a lifetime with Slick throughout this stirring tour-de-force masterpiece that musically is all over the map, magnificent collection of tremendous performances should have been huge Grammy Award winning success but instead only nominated for Best Female Rock Performance...total injustice! Grace Slick went in studio prepared to show all she has no peer in the world of rock singers proving it in this versatile collection filled with stand-out mesmerizing performances. Experience biting vocals charged with fierce intensity in the searing "Face To The Wind" then become a believer nobody can top this rocking DIVA with her hot guitarist/composer Scott Zito...high energy & hard rocking "Angel Of Night" is a tour-de-force anthem and perfect showcase again for Grace/Scott combination, they are perfection together and scorch the tracks. Haunting illumination make "Seasons" an engrossing Slick original that becomes a nostalgic & sentimental celebration of life, unforgettable like that special ride on a carousal with a special someone one doesn't want to end...funky Slick composed blues-rocker "Do It The Hard Way" is a revealing song giving a rare inside look in to the soul of a fascinating & very creative lady.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreams - and HOW! June 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Just briefly - Grace Slick had (since she no longer records per se) - the greatest, musically-appealing female voice in R&R for decades. (And the only persons I've seen who have the same basic on-stage presence are Madonna and Gwen Stephani.) Grace had tone, perfect vibrato, clarity and the ability to hold a note on pitch and with meaning for days.
Anyway - Dreams was a triumph, of sorts, after the big ups ('Theme from the Movie Manhole,' and the little-mentioned 'j'...) and the downs (It's only Music) of the 'Manhole' album.
I WORE OUT my vinyl copy of 'Dreams.' Finally ruined the cassette version in the late 90's. When the CD FINALLY came out (import) I was ecstatic....got to hear Grace at her best again. Just listen to the title track. Now there is singing and performance brilliance. Listen to "Full Moon Man." Wow....Grace and instruments sireening away forever...
This is a must have for Airplane/Starship/Grace Slick fans. Too bad she's not recording anymore....I could use some new vocals in my head by Grace!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite album of all time September 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I remember very clearly being given a copy of this album when it came out, back when I was a Jr. in High School. At the time, I was listening to a pretty wide variety of music (like KISS, the Who, Doobie Brothers, Black Sabbath, Amy Grant [yep...Sabbath and Amy back to back], Zeppelin, Genesis [they hadn't yet turned to inconsequential mush, but they were well on their way], etc.), and I was something of a Jefferson Starship fan (I wasn't yet mature enough to really appreciate Jefferson Airplane, but did like some of their stuff). I immediately fell in love with DREAMS. It practically consumed me. The lyrics are extremely personal, and the music is a huge departure for Grace. This is a rare window into the soul of an artist. It is absolutely brilliant. My musical tastes have changed, grown, expanded in inumerable ways since high school (world music, funk, electronica, modern symphonic, etc), but DREAMS remains at the top of my list. And I imagine it always will.

A few years ago, I lost my huge LP collection (along with everything else) in a house fire. DREAMS is the only album that escaped the fire practically untouched. It now hangs framed on the wall in my office.

Thank you, Grace, for sharing your soul with us, and for giving us this enduring work of art.
