Product Description

Eurythmics ~ Peace

Amazon.com

Peace, Eurythmics's first studio album in a decade, finds Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart proving the durability of their musical bond. Where their solo efforts were usually well crafted and unexciting, Peace makes clear how inspired the two can be when working together. The ballad (and first U.S. single) "17 Again" is nice if overly sentimental; the reprise of "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" at the end treads Stinglike ground to little appreciable effect. But songs such as "I Saved the World Today" and "Beautiful Child" vividly return to the depth of Touch and Be Yourself Tonight while updating Eurythmics's chemistry for 1999. In short, Peace is a happy surprise that will find listeners hoping for more. --Rickey Wright

Customer Reviews

That's all I can say! :
Ryan MacRae
This album is a great new start for the Eurythmics, because many of the songs on this album are all good enough to be singles.
Marco Tucci
The songs are very good like the best ones are 17 Again, I Saved The World Today, Peace Is Just A Word and I Want It All.

For 10 years, Eurythmics' fan base has eaten up individual efforts such as Dave Stewart's "Lily Was Here" with Candi Dulfer and Annie Lennox's albums Diva and Medusa. The idea of a Eurythmics reunion seemed far-fetched at best. Stewart had settled in nicely in the United Kingdom as a man behind the scenes, and Lennox was gaining respect among fellow singers and critics as a solo artist. Well enough, this year VH1's artist poll ranked Lennox ninth among the 100 greatest women in rock and roll, higher than such ancestors as Carole King, Patti Smith, Joan Armatrading, Diana Ross and Siouxsie Sioux. That's a lot to place on the shoulders of this Scotswoman. (Later in December, Eurythmics' landmark 1983 video "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" will be broadcast among the top 40 of MTV's Top 100 music videos of all time.)
The announcement of a Eurythmics reunion may have been received with trepidation: why stop the solo progression on either end now? Well, Lennox and Stewart both have said that working together after the 10-year hiatus turned out to be too much fun to forego. The result is a mix of melancholy and fun with sprinkles of environmentalism and love's agony. It's a lot to place into one album, but Peace pulls it off very well.
Critics have been lukewarm about Peace, lauding Lennox's vocal delivery but criticizing Stewart's production value and saying, over all, that this album lacks the drive that was in earlier classics like 1985's Be Yourself Tonight and 1986's Revenge. I can't be sure this is what Eurythmics were driving at with this effort. How, after 10 years off, can Lennox and Stewart expect to have grown and still come up with pure pop? Let's be honest. Their music was never "pure" pop.

It is first interesting to note that although the popularity of 80s music has returned, Annie Lennox has increased her popularity throughout the 90s despite this hip trend. Hence the debut of this album as the top debut in the nation for the week. After the popularity of 'Diva' and 'Medusa', it seems everyone is curious to hear how Dave Stewart influences her on the latest project. Although a Eurythmics fan since 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)', it wasn't until Annie Lennox broke out on her own that I became an Annie devotee. With the brilliant writing in 'Diva' and personal adaptation of songs in 'Medusa', Annie seemed to grow gracefully with age, pouring her soul into intensely personal projects. Many consider both albums to be classics, and unlike most music this decade (98 degrees? That's a temperature, not music), we will find our children listening to these albums. So, What of 'Peace'? Most noticeable is its variety. What Annie comes back to is some of the hard edges of their music; songs such as 'Power to the Meek' and 'I Want It All' complement Annie the rock singer, and 'I've Tried Everything' is soulful yet letting Annie rage. Yet, I prefer the sheer beauty of songs such as 'I Saved the World Today', a haunting song that allows Annie's unique voice to complement it as a classic, far and above the best on the album. 'Forever' is Beatlesque, featuring horns and guitars reminiscent of 'Sgt. Peppers'. The ending, 'Lifted' makes me feel just that - inspired and lifted. I am hopeful that most people appreciate this album as I have - interesting, varied and inherently listenable. Looking forward to their success!

When I first bought this album I found it a little depressing. It may have been my mood, or maybe it's the melodramatic lyrics. Anyway, I got over that pretty quickly when I realy listened to the the lovely "Saved The World Today", or the rocker "I Want It All". Then I noticed other standout tracks like the spare and beautiful "My True Love" which showcases Annie's vocals best on the album, and "Power To The Meek" reminded me a little of the duo around their "Missionary Man" days. And if the slower tracks leave you a little downtrodden, they do at least leave you on thier last cut with the subltle and pretty "Lifted" - a song about just hanging in there.
So, no, this is not my favorite album from Dave & Annie (I have all of them), but it is a satisfying update to some of their classic work, so I gave it four stars. My favorite albums are still "Touch" and "Sweet Dreams", but this is a nice addition to my collection.

Eurythmics were quite possibly the most misunderstood popular group in the eighties, especially by me. When I first saw them parading around on "Sweet Dreams..." I thought of them as smug new wave and nearly dismissed them. Then I heard "Right By Your Side" and it was, perhaps, the least pretentious song of the decade. The onslaught of diverse hits, each accompanied by Dave's understated popslick production, Annie's perfected popslick voice along with some of the most honest songwriting ("Sisters...," "Would I Lie To You," "Thorn In My Side," "Who's That Girl," "Here Comes The Rain Again," et. al) left me wondering if this was the greatest duo ever.
Where were they in the nineties? Solo projects, mostly, and just living off of the eighties royalties. They could have kept doing that, I am sure, and pretty much left their legacy intact. An impromptu "wedding present for a friend" resulted in a reunion concert, and the time felt right for a new collaboration. No press. No MTV Unplugged or VH1 Behind The Music/Storyteller. They could very well have gone that route and almost certainly tripled the sales of this new album. But they did not, and it feels right.
Nothing on this album feels rushed. The lyrics are laced with ironic musings and smiling laments. This album is in the truest of Eurythmic sense, totally honest...and totally unpredictable. Dave Stewart reigns in the sound for a more subtle backdrop to Lennox' interpretations of their words. And she has the voice to do it. But this is not Annie's third solo album. Each note is with purpose and tension, pushing her to a balancing act on the tightrope she hurled herself over in the past.
