The album remained at No. 1 on the American albums chart for 31 weeks and reached the top spot in various countries worldwide. The album won Album of the Year in 1978 and produced four U.S. Top 10 singles, with Nicks’ “Dreams” being the band’s first and only U.S. number one hit.
Nicks began her solo career in 1981 with the album Bella Donna, which reached Platinum status less than three months after its release, and has since been certified quadruple-platinum. She has released a total of eight solo studio albums to date, with her most recent titled 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault, released in October 2014.

This Is M.E. is the twelfth studio album by American rock/pop musician Melissa Etheridge, released on September 30, 2014 by Etheridge’s own label ME Records, which is distributed by Primary Wave Records. It features eleven tracks on the standard release and four bonus tracks on the Target exclusive version.
Allmusic said of the album, “There’s something appealing in hearing Etheridge try a number of new sounds: not everything fits but the restlessness is admirable”, and awarded the album three stars. Rolling Stone also awarded the album three stars, and wrote “As always, her voice can walk a fine line between passionate and histrionic, but when she dials it back on the smoldering ‘Like A Preacher’, it’s clear that this honeymoon might be the start of a whole new her.”

Hysteria is the fourth studio album by English rock band Def Leppard, released on 3 August 1987 through Mercury Records. It is the band’s best-selling album to date, selling over 20 million copies worldwide, and spawning seven hit singles. The album charted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the UK Albums Chart.
Hysteria was produced by Robert John “Mutt” Lange. The title of the album was thought up by drummer Rick Allen, referring to his 1984 auto accident and the ensuing worldwide media coverage surrounding it. It is also the last album to feature guitarist Steve Clark before his death, however, their next album, Adrenalize is the last to feature Clark’s songwriting.
The album is the follow-up to the band’s 1983 breakthrough Pyromania. Hysteria’s creation took over three years and was plagued by delays, including the aftermath of the 31 December 1984 car accident that cost Allen his left arm. Subsequent to the album’s release, Def Leppard published a book entitled Animal Instinct: The Def Leppard Story, written by Rolling Stone magazine Senior Editor David Fricke, on the three-year recording process of Hysteria and the tough times the band endured through the mid-1980s.
Hysteria has earned critical acclaim from a number of sources. In 1988 Q magazine readers voted it as the 98th Greatest Album of All Time, while in 2004, the album was ranked at #472 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. – Wikipedia
