Album Review

The critics savaged Annie Lennox's sophomore effort when it first came out, and it's easy to see why: it's not that an all-covers album was a bad idea, but she did pick some rather large shoes to fill and she did kind of run roughshod over the songs themselves, taking gritty material by the likes of Neil Young and the Clash and turning it into super-slick electro-pop ear candy. But on the other hand, candy sometimes really hits the spot, and Lennox's rendition of "No More I Love You's" by the ultra-obscure British pop band the Lover Speaks is ravishingly, heartbreakingly lovely. Those who have never heard the Clash's original version of "Train in Vain" might not find her version as objectionable as the critics did, either. But there's no arguing with the critics when it comes to her anemic take on the Al Green classic "Take Me to the River" or her equally numb rendition of Neil Young's "Don't Let It Bring You Down." Those who have given up on looking cool, however, might find themselves able to enjoy her gentle arrangement of "A Whiter Shade of Pale." Don't pay full price for this, but snap it up if you find it in a bargain bin somewhere.

Review of Madusa

Annie's music may not be to everyone's tast but "Madusa" is one album that my collection could not be without! It is (WITHOUT A DOUBT) one of annie lennox's greatest musical atchievements, she has managed to take such great songs from other artists and make them her own. throuhout the album annie's voice is unbelievably brilliant, powerful and heartbreakingly beautiful. What more can you ask for. and I certonly didn't mind forking up the money to buy this masterpiece.


Does everything have to be critically cutting edge? I certainly found room in my collection for Medusa - a great collection of classy and ecelectic tunes by one of the best female vocalists around. As a long-time Neil Young fan, I enjoyed Annie's cover of "Don't Let It Bring You Down". I didn't know the Persuader's "Thin Line ..." or The Clash's "Train in Vain" when I bought the album but the Lennox versions are slick and accessible. Not an album to tax or challenge perhaps but one that will certainly relax the listener ... and for my money worth buying.


Do not listen to the moronic iTunes reviewer. 'Dont Let It Bring You Down' is one of her best. It gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.
