I don t wanna talk about love

Storms is singer-songwriter Nanci Griffith's eighth album. In it she heads in a third musical direction, that of pop music. Griffith, whose background is primarily folk music, turned toward country music in her preceding four or five albums, and here, again, ventures into a little different style. Griffith enlisted the talents of noted rock music producer Glyn Johns for the musical style change. The album landed at #42 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, and at #99 on the Pop Albums chart in 1989.

Writing for AllMusic, critic Lindsay Planer notes that although her change in style was not well received by purists, Griffith "unfurled some of her finest musical stories to date."
