The NEW Beginning

If there is one constant feeling on this baffling 1981 debut album, it is of melodious gloom and cool, refreshing, melancholic, English rain, but not in the bad way. "English Summer", the opening track on the album sets a haunting mood for the rest of the album. Large and exquisite bass lines, ravishing, whispering ghost-like, angelic voices (alto and tenor alike), clarity of drums and French horns, a little bit of sampling (how avant-garde is that?- way ahead of its time). Annie Lennox's voice is at one of its purest and still untamed moments, nevertheless a lot more timid and hushed than the Tourists' days. It's as if it were a new beginning (and in a way, it was) and Annie would like for us to discover her true voice, but not just yet, maybe on the next album! "Belinda's" guitar riffs introduce Dave Stewart into the album (without concentrating on his being only a producer/co-producer of the album) while Annie smoothly sings across this heartbreaking track. "Take Me To Your Heart" is one of the weaker tracks of the album as it feels a little inexpressive. The verses, chorus and bridge sound as if they were too shy to travel outside the octave. "She's Invisible Now" brings something new like the pre-robotic "Sweet Dreams (are made of this)" voice and production. "Your Time Will Come" is an upbeat (post punk pre-new wave) race towards time. It's got the slow and unknowing, veiled intro and the chorus races to a culminating point of multiple voices before breaking into a horror film-like ghostly voice. The song is an opener for the upcoming punk-moody "Caveman Head" which loses its credibility because of its very soft sung lyrics. There is no violence or anarchy in this song but it does bring two different styles (musically and lyrically) into the works, an element of punk and the other, a scorching love song. Why "Never Gonna Cry Again" made it as the first single of the album will always elude me. Albeit a song of broken-heartedness (which opens the atmosphere to the entire Eurythmics CAREER) it is not the hardest hitting or saddest love song ever written. The gloomy and masterful "All The Young (People Of Today)" is a well-crafted moralistic song (lyrics suggest this is a man's world and women should be able to find their place in it- the pre- Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves song) of psychedelic verses versus beautiful and soft, heavenly choruses melting back into a normality before breaking out into psychedelic proportions again and hypnotizing the listener with the same notes playing on the keyboard. A chaotic ending representing the world in itself closes the track. This song includes goose bumps, but only for the avid Eurythmics' fan. "Sing-Sing" is a cute attempt at explaining how animals get butchered to feed humankind, sung in French. Without the lyrics, this song is simple and light, and to a certain extent, almost disco-like fun. Adding the fable-like lyrics (the animals in the song are given human forms distinctions as fully functional citizens who work, take their bicycles to work and work for a living- or dying for that matter) gives it a reflective edge on vegetarianism and makes you think twice about eating any meat. The album closes with "Revenge" (a long-term relationship between Annie and the actual act awaits her for years to come). Albeit, this album is a career-defying and career-defining moment which will lead to the eventual, more commercial "Sweet Dreams" a year later, but is a definite buy for anyone trying to understand the Eurythmics evolution, and the bridge from the Tourists to Eurythmics. An emerald in a crown, that's what this is!

Biography

Formed: 1980 in London, England

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

Eurythmics were one of the most successful duos to emerge in the early '80s. Where most of their British synth pop contemporaries disappeared from the charts as soon as new wave faded away in 1984, Eurythmics continued to have hits until the end of the decade, making vocalist Annie Lennox a star in her own right, as well as establishing instrumentalist Dave Stewart as a successful, savvy producer and songwriter. Originally, the duo channelled the eerily detached sound of electronic synthesizer music...
