Stevie Nicks' throaty vocals and floating melodies have a seductive appeal that informs even her least-inspired efforts. Once that sheer aural pleasure recedes, however, too much of the material on ''The Other Side of the Mirror'' fails to sustain interest. The first single, ''Rooms on Fire,'' and the introspective ''Ghosts'' are two of the album's stronger tracks, and the distinctiveness of Nicks' style ensures that her fans won't be disappointed. Unfortunately, ''The Other Side of the Mirror'' doesn't go quite far enough to establish itself as a breakthrough.
