A "Making Of" Film Featuring Ms. Annie Lennox


“My curiosity always seems to lead me into interesting experiences,” says Annie Lennox.

Certainly, in a career spanning four decades, the singer-songwriter's creative muse has taken her down some remarkable pathways. With the groundbreaking, multi-platinum duo Eurythmics and as a solo recording artist, Lennox has sold over 83 million records worldwide, and is one of the ...

Product Description

Debut Solo Album of Annie Lennox, 1992 Arista Records

The term "diva" is an honorific to be bestowed, not a title to be claimed. That alone gets Annie Lennox's 1992 solo debut off on the wrong foot. Nor does it help that, instead of following the often-daring path of her former outfit, the Eurythmics, Lennox chose instead to wrap her big, emotional voice in aloof, sophisticated settings rendered primarily on synthesized keyboards. "Why" is a gorgeous ballad about a crumbling relationship, but nothing about the pristine "Walking on Broken Glass" comes close to the danger its title implies. "Precious" offers little beyond lite funk, while "Cold" is studiously icy and distant. Only "Why" and the closing number, "The Gift," achieve the sort of richly detailed intimacy she was obviously reaching for here. So hold off on that diva stuff, Annie. We'll let you know when it's time. --Daniel Durchholz

5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty, power and brilliance caught on a CD April 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Very few times have I ever seen an album title so perfectly describe an artist and release. Forget comparing her with her past (and present) in the Eurythmics; with Diva, Annie Lennox makes audiences stand up and take notice of her power and talent as an individual. With poignant lyrics, lush orchestrations, and her incredible voice, Annie Lennox puts together a brilliant and powerful piece of aural beauty. Even before Lillith Fair and the "women's movement" in music came along, Annie Lennox was showing the world how women really were "doin' it for themselves." And she was doin' it with style, grace, beauty, brains, power, and finesse.
The release begins on a very strong note with "Why" which showcases the strength, power and beauty of Annie's voice, accompanied by lush, beautiful orchestration. It's no wonder this song was a huge success as a single in 1992. "Walking on Broken Glass" was also released as a single and had a lot of success; it still gets played a lot today on light rock stations. This is a very strong and uplifting song. Unfortunately for me, some of its initial power and edge has been lost because it has been overplayed, but that's just a personal interjection. "Precious" gives us a bit of the soul rock flavor that Eurythmics' fans are familiar with; this is a fantastic and strong attitude song. "Legend in My Living Room" is another fantastic soul-rock attitude song that tells it like it is; you'll be struttin' around with your hands on your hips and singing along. "Cold" returns us to the deep, lush, melancholic feel we started with in "Why" with just a bit of attitude thrown in. "Money Can't Buy It" is a power pop attitude song enhanced by powerful lyrics; you'll be swaying, clapping, and singing along to this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars It will touch your soul. November 5, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I have bought many other cds from many other artists, and after a few times of listening to them, they end up on the shelf collecting dust. This has never happened with 'Diva'. Annie speaks to your soul with her music. "Why", "Cold", these songs I have never grown tired of. They can still make me bawl like a baby. Annie Lennox's voice and vocal energy on this can I do her justice with mere words, she touches your soul and your heart with her incredible vocal talent and the emotion she pours out in each tune. You can feel her pain, her love and, yes, sometimes even contempt in each word she sings. Her voice is hauntingly beautiful, wonderfully soulful, and deliciously creamy. She is one the greatest female singers of our century and this album proves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stunning Debut Album April 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Annie Lennox, in my opinion is one of the greatest female singers alive today, with vocal ability and beauty that can make other artists feel sheepish in the prescence of this fantastic woman. Although Annie is fighting to keep the independent side of her alive most people always classify her under her former group Eurythmics, which in my opinion was Annie's immateur phase. On this album she produces songs on this album ranging from a variety of styles that will satisfy anybody's appetite. Among my favorites is "Why," a beautiful ballad about a relationship that took a turn for the worse, "Walking On Broken Glass" sounds more like a pop song with the same concept in mind as "Why" except that Annie demands attention from her lover, "Money Can't Buy It" sounds like a song Blondie would sing, she even raps at the end! "Little Bird" Annie's voice really shines through on this track, with an incredible beat and of course, Annie's vocals as the chorus, and "The Gift" about the miracle of breaking up, it's very sad yet moving song.
For a debut album this certainly tops the list, and after you buy this album you will understand my point of view.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, intelligent pop. November 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
To a previous reviewer: "Diva is an honorific to be bestowed, not claimed"? Don't condescend, and don't criticise a work just because you haven't read between the lines. The title is meant to be ironic, as testified by the videos,interviews and bonus track "Keep Young And Beautiful".That's precisely what gives the largely gentle album its refreshingly intelligent pop edge. She's playing with the role of the trapped and fallen "diva". But best of all, she still manages to provide some sincere and beatiful tracks which transcend these ironies (notably "Why" and "The Gift"). All good stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Annie Lennox's First Solo CD July 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD
After being a part of Eurythmics, Annie Lennox created her first solo album, Diva. She is truly a diva, musically far above the rest.
The good: Every song has that unforgettable "Lennox touch". Some songs, such as Why, Stay By Me, and Cold are calm, relaxing songs. Songs like Walking On Broken Glass, Little Bird, and Legend In My Living Room have catchy lyrics, a good, strong beat, and a nice rhythm.
The bad: I fell in love with these songs so much that I over-listened to it. Don't follow in my footsteps, please.
I feel Diva was a wonderful transition between Eurythmics and Annie's solo career. You definitely won't be disappointed when you buy this CD.
