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!

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.

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.

At the beginning of the 1990s, the hiatus of Eurythmics was apparent, although not too publicized, and the duo's members essentially started to work on their individual careers. Although Dave Stewart had by then already released more solo music, it was Annie Lennox who would outdo him in terms of commercial success. Her debut album "Diva" was the step in just the right direction. The singer re-emerged with new sound and a reinvented image, but with the same beautiful, deep voice and emotional way of singing. Together with the producer Stephen Lipson, Lennox crafted sophisticated compositions, which sit somewhere on the border of pop and soul. "Diva" is a highly elegant and stylish album, full of interpersonal lyrics and sentimental ballads, just like the hit lead single "Why". Cuts like "Primitive" and "The Gift" bring in melancholy and nostalgia, when up-tempo tracks "Walking on Broken Glass" and "Little Bird" breathe some dance energy into the set. Another gem is the mind blowing ballad "The Gift". "Diva" is a captivating album by a mature artist, and it may appear that only after the break-up of Eurythmics, Annie Lennox fully spread her musical wings.

This is the album that saw Annie Lennox set off on a solo career in 1992 following the huge success of Eurythmics - and what a debut it was. Five of the 11 tracks here were big hits with "Why", "Precious", Walking On Broken Glass", "Cold" and "Little Bird" giving any fan of this fabulous vocalist sound reason to purchase this album. Stephen Lipson's production is top drawer, effortlessly oozing from the speakers and especially atmospheric on "The Gift", penned in collaboration with those other Scottish giants The Blue Nile. It's got lots of echoes of that band's work, especially with Paul Joseph Moore providing atmospheric keyboards, which is a huge plus.

Ten of the tracks are written or co-written by Lennox herself, a huge outpouring that would take her until 2003 to emulate with "Bare" with the final, bonus track a cover of "Keep Young An Beautiful", recorded in a lovely pastiche of a 78rpm record's limited audio spectrum pointing the way to the covers album that was to follow, "Medusa". Essential for any fan of Lennox's voice, couple this with Eurythmics "Greatest Hits" and you have some of Britain's finest ever pop music.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
