Annie Lennox


Back in the day, Annie Lennox was the androgynous soul sensation with the searing voice at the front of the band the Eurythmics. Later, after the group had quietly disbanded, Lennox found commercial and critical acclaim as a solo artist, deepening our appreciation of her many talents and that gorgeous voice.

Lennox has always had a dark side, an emotional depth underlying the haunting melodies layered into “Why” and the raw expressions of pure vocal energy penetrating “Walking on Broken Glass.” She is also a humanitarian. “Sing” is part of her efforts to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS in Africa.

The album is in many ways a testament to her ability to jump genres, albeit with mixed results on some later work.

New here are “Pattern of My Life” a cover of a Keane song that doesn’t quite do the original justice, and a sparkling remake of the Ash hit “Shining Light.”

Lennox may always be best remembered for the sweet dreams she conjured, but this album serves as a reminder that her light still shines. By Jenny Na
