By definition, a wrecker is a person or thing that wrecks.1
Clarice and Simon—songwriting gems of Suffolk-based AMETHYSTS—place the blame for heartbreak with every last one of us. The very same selves now appearing in millions of self-centered selfies on social-networking and photo-sharing screens. We are the wreckers of our own love. Guilty as charged.
...there are character traits that create specific and notable risks in a relationship: selfishness, selflessness, exploitative personalities, argumentativeness, and excessive self-preoccupation, among other traits, undermine a capacity for intimacy.2
Clarice's vocal texture might remind listeners of Stevie Nicks, known for her song Dreams (1977). Fleetwood Mac's only #1 hit on American charts. Ancients regarded the purple-tinted amethyst as a dream stone.
