Product Description

Bare [Audio CD] Annie Lennox

Amazon.co.uk

Bare, Annie Lennox's first album of original songs in 11 years, is a stylish tour de force that showcases the former Eurythmics chanteuse in all her chilly, shimmering splendour. Her formidable voice is still a supple and intriguing instrument, lithely shape-shifting between emotions, personas and musical forms. Lennox moves effortlessly from the sparse and pristine lament of "A Thousand Beautiful Things" to the deceptively simple "Pavement Cracks", a solemn ballad that is transformed by electro dance beats that recall some of the best of the Eurythmics. But Lennox's quixotic voice is best utilised as an old-school soul instrument; she makes a metaphorical journey to Motown on "Hurting Time", a reflective ballad that could have been lifted off a Miracles album. "Honesty" finds the Scottish diva at her well-mannered best, occupying the sophisticated space formerly held by Carly Simon. --Jaan Uhelszki

Annie Lennox has one of the most lush and haunting voices in pop music. Match that with her ability to write interesting lyrics and beautiful melodies and you get BARE in a wonderfully exposed package. After hearing this recording, it makes one wonder why it takes her so long to release new material. Parts of this cd are reminiscent of Eurythmics. But most of it is all Annie solo. I belive she had the same producer on Bare as she had on Diva. So if you loved Diva, you will be equally satisfied here as well. Favorite tracks are ..Honesty, wonderful, 1000 beautiful things, bitter pill. Only one throw back and it is the last song Oh God. It is a very short almost hymn she sings that is not pop. I heard this recording on the internet and downloaded it. I will be rushing to the stores on June 10 to purchase Bare. I believe we must support artists like Annie Lennox in hopes that she will make more amazing music in the future. This CD is worth every last penny.

Bare is arguably the most personal work that Lennox has every produced. It is not immediately accessible on first listen, it is a record you have to replay and reflect on; but the effort is well worth the reward. The new collection of songs will appeal primarily to Lennox purists and anyone who has ever had a relationship hit the rocks (most of us right?!).
The album opens with the sparkling wistfulness of ‘1000 Beautiful Things’. Next is the first radio single from the album, ‘Pavement Cracks’ which stands out as the showpiece, that demonstrates that the power of her voice is as awesome as ever. The only thing to surpass it, is the live version and that can be found on the DVD of the solo tour. Next up is the gentle lazy soul of the ‘Hurting Time’ followed by ‘Honestly’, a beautifully layered double vocal arrangement on top of a hypnotic rhythm. While ‘Wonderful’ is a gentle massage that Lennox pushes deeper and deeper into the listener. The most up-tempo song ‘Bitter Pill’ is a deliciously funky track that is crying out to be remixed as a club anthem. ‘Loneliness’ is a track that leaves the listener spinning as if drunk, but if you take time to read the lyrics it makes sense; again Lennox requires the listener to work for their reward. A track that commands its own haunting space on the album is ‘The Sadist Song’ which leaves you feeling like you are standing in the middle of an Icelandic glacial lake. But there is no time for sentimentality, as the ferocious ‘Erased’ jumps from the record with the roar of old ‘I’ll just erase you from my memory’. The penultimate track ‘Twisted’ is a luscious close to a hypnotic 50 minutes.

This album contains some of the most beautifuly sung music ever. Not only do songs like Erased, 1000 beautiful things, Pavement cracks (best song on the album), the hurting time, loneliness have amazing melodies but because of her voice these songs are haunting yet beautiful. Other songs like 'Honesty' are quite complex with annie lennox singing but also with her head voice over the top. This album is without a doubt, in my opinion, one of the best albums ever written. 11/10

Ms. Annie Lennox has finally done it. She's come up with the goods that I know a great deal of her fans have been waiting for.
Throughout her career, Annie has played with image, gender and her audience's emotions - creating vast muscial landscapes (along with Dave, for the most part) with which people can lose themself in and really feel as if they belong. Now, as she says herself, all that has gone before has been cast aside in favour of the true, musical Annie Lennox. The songs are still about despair, hope and all that love stuff but this time they seem to mean so much more. I've always judged Annie (and Dave) by the first three tracks on an album. Do I connect with what she's saying? Does it uplift me instead of allowing me to wallow in my own self pity? The only problem I've found with her previous material is that the music somehow doesn't match the mood. I know that in some cases that's the point she's trying to make musically, but still. Give me the hook and I'm hooked. From the moment her 'backing singers' proclaim "A thousand beautiful things" I'm hooked on the lyrics AND the music. There are also echoes of previous songs and for a fan that's great. There's a link to the past and the feeling that you have some personal conversation going with Annie, but she takes it one step further and really makes me feel like her charge. She's the all-knowing matron and I'm there to take her advice and get on with my life.
Bare really is a personal journey come to fruition. This is the real Annie Lennox and by God I hope I don't have to wait so long next time to hear what she's got to say. The woman should be knighted for her services to humankind! Amen

The voice of Annie Lennox is a remarkable instrument of quiet elegance and genuine emotion. Whether in the Eurythmics or solo, Annie's voice is a crisp breeze of blue-eyed soul that never sounds forced or contrived. On her first CD of original material in, oh, a mere 11 years, Annie Lennox remains virtually unchanged, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. On "Bare," the Scottish diva takes us through a trip of Mowtown-inspired soul, warm ballads, and a few pop numbers that flirt a bit with electronica. It's a platter that offers more of the same, but it's still a pleasant and engaging trip. She makes good and strong impressions on cuts like the opener "A Thousand Different Things," the funkified "Bitter Pill," and the pained "Honestly." "Bare" is mature and mellow music that's a welcome diversion from the cookie-cutter pop that's out there. It's not as rhythm-heavy as her earlier work in the Eurythmics, but it's multitextured and multilayered enough to keep the listener interested throughout. It's reaffirming to know that some great things in pop music never change. Sweet dreams are certainly made of this.
