Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Although traces of her synthpop roots certainly showed through, Annie Lennox's solo debut, Diva, made it abundantly clear that her new material would veer away from gender-bending robotics of the early Eurythmics sound and continue towards the more emotionally grounded soul of later releases. On Diva, Lennox infuses each song with tenderly perceptive lyrics, hypnotic rhythms, and irresistibly soulful wailings. Her arrangements are clean and simple, utilising bare instrumentation and sometimes-languid chord work. The singles "Walking on Broken Glass", "Little Bird", and "Why" became radio mainstays, while gems such as the Eastern-influenced dream ballad "Primitive", the hauntingly autobiographical pop-lament "Legend in My Living Room", and the cheerfully satirical "Keep Young and Beautiful" gave the album a plump maturity. --Sally Weinbach

It is never easy, making the transition from a hugely successful and innovative 80's duo, to a serious solo artiste. But Annie Lennox did it, and she did it with style and finesse. The album is wonderful, from beginning to end. It opens with her hugely successful single "Why", before moving onto more serious material, such as the confessional "Legend in my Living Room", the funky "Little Bird", the eastern inspired "Primitive" and closing with the satirical "Keep Young and Beautiful." This is one of the few albums which you can listen to fully, and all the way through, before realising how good it is. As with all albums, however, there are some slight negative points. Firstly, Lennox's single "Love Song for a Vampire" does not appear on it. Although it was slightly out of place on the 1992 Dracula soundtrack, it would've made a nice contribution here. Also some songs are slightly placed the wrong way round (you work that one out). BUT, a stunning album, which merits being considered on any top 10 (or even top 5) of greatest solo female albums. Well worth buying!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and evocative 11 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
An authentic music bombshell with a captivating powerful voice, allowing her to convey her feelings with depth.Lennox takes you through an anecdote of unsurpassed beauty and evaluation of life. Almost like a autobiography, Diva is a reminder of triumph, the work of a revivalist, a memoir. Here, the woman fools with irony to poise the mood which is contained in this drammatic album using her music intellectual skills accumulated from the Eurythmics years to do so. Diva is a personal story, making it an interesting album. I highly recommend it to anyone who is in seach for something eccentric. She's lunatic, she's a diva....The title of this album explains it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Haunting Classic That Hasn't Dated... 4 May 2007
By DSR VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favourite CD's from the early nineties.

There's a tenderness and maturity to the songs here which hasn't dated one bit.

Everyone I know who loves this album has a different track as their favourite and the superb production bringing out all the emotion in Annie's singing.

The songs are sung with a heartfelt honesty that's still refreshing to hear, with almost none of the "pop production" that could spoil some of the Eurithmics recordings. "Money can't Buy It" and "Little Bird" are audio dem-room classics too.

At the prices here, I'd sincerely recommend you give this a try - it deserves to be in every CD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars incredible....nothing like it 29 April 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Annie Lennox has made a huge change from a pop/new wave duo to a serious solo artist. In all honesty i think that dave stewart brings her down because her music is far more beautiful, haunting without him e.g. why or lovesong for a vampire which send shivers down your spine. this album is genious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
