Album Review

On Be Yourself Tonight, the Eurythmics' most commercially successful and hit-laden album, the duo meticulously blended the new wave and electronic elements that dominated their previous sets with the harder straight-edged rock and soul that would dominate later sets, resulting in a nearly perfect pop album. This disc scored no less than four hit singles and kept them a mainstay on MTV's play lists during the channel's heyday. Fusing pop, soul, rock, electronic beats, and even gospel, this is arguably the duo's finest moment. The first hit, "Would I Lie to You," is a straightforward rocker, complete with great guitar licks, a soulful horn section, and Annie Lennox sounding as vicious and vivacious as ever. The second single, which was a huge chart-topper in Europe, "There Must Be an Angel," is nothing short of shimmering beauty, with Lennox providing truly angelic vocals and Stevie Wonder adding an enchanting harmonica solo. Aretha Franklin lends her powerhouse pipes for the duet "Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves," which has gone on to become an immortal feminist anthem. From the soulful electronic beats (a rarity) in "It's Alright (Baby's Coming Back)" to the beauty of the Elvis Costello duet "Adrian" to the pain and longing of the sorrowful rocker "Better to Have Lost in Love (Than Never to Have Loved at All)," this album runs through a wide array of musical styles, with each song standing tall on its own two feet. This disc is, without a doubt, one of the best pop/rock albums from the 1980s and one of the grandest, most creative albums delivered by the ever-appealing and innovative duo of Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart. A true classic. [This reissue of the album includes five bonus tracks, including a live version of "Conditioned Soul."] ~ Jose F. Promis, Rovi

Customer Reviews

One of Eurythmics Best Albums

I was a huge fan of Eurythmics back in the 80's and I've always loved Annie and Dave. There's nobody like them anymore. If your new to these guys, I would suggest one of their other albums but you really can't go wrong with this one as this was their most successful commercial effort. All their albums are great but this one comes with some many mixes and remasters it is a crazy good deal. You won't be sorry purchasing this one.

So exciting it will last for genorations!

For some one who wasn't evenborn in the 80's or alive for that matter, Be Yourself Tonight is my Favorite Eurythmics Album. Although i have only listened to three songs, (Would I lie to you, There Must be an Angel, It's alright) I enjoyed this album becaause of thse songs. They are classic, pretty, and wonderful. If you just have a couple pounds on your hand, my recomendation song for this is There Must be an Angel. I love that song and I've loved since i was a kid. This is the best Eurythmics Album ever. This is Annie Lennox's Diva. This is The beatle's Abbey Road. This isn't music... it's a masterpiece.

Not THAT great!

This album had a couple good songs, in fact "It's Alright" is one of my all time Eurythmics favourites, but the popularity of this album is mostly due to the huge fan base they had just built up with their first two brilliant albums "Sweet Dreams" and "Touch" both of which are ten times better than this or anything after it. Eurythmics are one of my three fav bands but this album is the beginning of their long slide downhill to doing that la la la old-lady pop crap that eventually became Annie's solo career.

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...
