Album Review

Nearly a decade after Eurythmics went on an unannounced, virtually unnoticed hiatus in 1990, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart returned with the heavily publicized Peace. Both Lennox and Stewart had been silent since 1995, which means that reuniting really wasn't a sacrifice, since their solo careers had stalled. In fact, it was a wise idea to re-team, both commercially and artistically, since their best and most popular music was made together. What's odd is that Peace strongly resembles Lennox's Diva. True, Eurythmics were moving toward the melodramatic grandeur of Diva on their final '80s album, We Too Are One, yet they still had an innate sense of quirkiness and a desire to take risks. In 1999, they're more about craft, which only emphasizes the maturity of the music. That's not entirely a bad thing, even if it means that Peace needs a couple of spins before the songs begin to register. Lennox and Stewart know how to write gently insinuating melodies and how to layer their tracks with small sonic details, weaving lush tapestries of sound. Peace keeps its alluring mood throughout; even when they attempt to revisit their Stones-y tendencies, the songs play as sleekly and smoothly as the ballads that dominate the record. In one sense, that's good, because it means that Peace keeps a consistent tone from front to back, but it also means that most of the songs blend together. There are no standout singles here, and that's the hardest thing to accept about the record since Eurythmics were one of the best singles bands of the '80s. Even so, Peace is a successful debut for Eurythmics, Mark II — it's classy adult pop, delivered with style and grace.

Customer Reviews

Incredible Reunion

What an excellent return of the Eurythmics. The acoustic version of 17 Again is amazing.

Huh?

I haven't written many itunes reviews but felt compelled to write this short one based on the album review.

Annie Lennox's career was not stalled! Her priorities were with her family and putting out CD after CD was not as important to her. She'd released two double platinum albums and had the luxury (and reputation) to do what she wanted, when she wanted.

Having gotten that off my chest, this is not my favorite of their albums. But it certainly was much better than the fodder that was popular in the late nineties. AndI finally got to see them live.

Finally !!

Who could've thought that in 1999 Dave & Annie would reunite for an album after almost a decade of no activity. Peace is rich and moving full of great tunes and almost synth free. Contains the atmospheric hit "I Saved The World Today".

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...
