This is a truly amazing album. The band was fresh, new and very experimental. The songs are very artsy, some with a hint of left over traces of punk. If you're looking for anything as awful and chart geared as "Would I lie to you" on this gem, then pass this up. There is no "hit" single on this album; just great and haunting songs from a band that sounded like they were making music they wanted to, and not for mass consumption. Two singles were released from this album - one barely charted in the UK and the other failed totally, at least on a commercial level.

This album was before Annie Lennox started with her never ending, soulful ranting and wailing, (see destroyed versions of some of these songs on their 1983 concert video release). Just listen to the opening track, the haunting "English summer", followed by the wonderful upbeat failed single "Belinda", to the moody and wonderful "Take me to your heart". Just amazing. A real highlight is the agressive "Caveman head", in which Annie sings with a very deadpan tone with all sorts or distant shouting in the background.

Thankfully, this new reissue has the excellent B side of the singles, which were only previously available on pricey used vinyl. "Le sinistre" is a definite horror movie, and "Heartbeat heartbeat" is a fast, punchy, short song that remains my favorite Eurythmics B side. The reissue also includes 3 of the 4 live B sides from the "This is the house" 12" single, all of which are very good, (though why they left one off is bewildering to me).

The remastering of the CD is pretty good, though in truth I think my original CD sounded a bit better.

This album had been bugging me for years after I withdrew it from the local library once, without making a decent copy, largely due to the immensely catchy "She's Invisible Now", so I got it recently. Wow, was I blown away by the sheer magnificence of this recording. As I understand it they remastered it in 1999 and that made a huge difference. I don't know if they got Dave in to supervise the remastering, but it certainly sounds more like his work of recent times than the original production, which was (so the stroy goes) done in a garage on a portable eight track studio. Consequently it was of very low production values, which must have near-killed Dave at the time, if what I hear of his perfectionism is correct. This mastering, whether Dave or a studio technician is truly magnificent, picking up on so much that was lost on the original (which was a rather worn 12-year-old-original-LP by the time I had listened to it) which gives it a depth and presence it simply lacked before.
Highlights are, as already mentioned, "She's Invisible Now" along with the very tuneful "Revenge" - shame they never used that title again, eh? - and the opening track which simply attacks you, grabs you by the throat, shouts "LISTEN" then calms down and nips off to make a cup of tea whilst you get your breath and enjoy the rest of the song. The title is "English Summer" and it is the most startling opener to an album I know, including "O Fortuna" from Carmina Burana.
Sylistically it is most similar to peace, but I suspect that has quite a lot to do with the time of the remaster. It would not need a lot of work to attempt to get a hit with this album in todays charts.

Why has this fantastic album slipped through the annals of music history, without the faintest recognition of a classic?? It is absolutely fantastic! I really dig the morose, yet beautiful vocals mixed up with those eerie and inventive guitare sounds to produce an overall mood and melody contained in 10 great tracks (particularly English Summer and Never Gonna Cry Again).
This album relies on the type of minimalism that exudes a non-pompous brilliance, making many albums of the early 80's great, such as Boy Don't Cry from the Cure or Garlands from Cocteau Twins.
If anything, I think that their follow-up album was quite a disappointment, apart from tracks "Sweet Dreams", "Love Is A Stranger" and "Jennifer".

The first Eurythmics album (although actually the 5th time that former Longdancer and Tourist David A Stewart had made an album, whilst it was Annie Lennox's fourth, and the second time they'd been in the studio with legendary 'krautrock' producer Conny Plank...but this was the first time they'd be writing all the material and had creative control) is a rather muted, dreamy, unfocussed, psychedelic affair.
That's not to say it's no good - but none of the songs really leap out and arrest you as hit pop tunes the way much of their later work would - instead the album tends to cocoon the listener in an uneasy dislocated mood, full of Plank's trademark reverberting sound textures (there's tape flanging on here to match 'Ruckzuck' from the first Kraftwerk album of 1971, and plenty of echoing wierdness from Can's Leibzeit & Czukay).
All in all, this is a rather cold clammy mildewed garden, inhabited by a man who'd spent a large part of the 1970s living in squats taking LSD every day, and a woman who would experience two nervous breakdowns in the next 18 months.
Anyhow, that's the music, how about this Sony-BMG remastered digipack? Well, the sound has a noticably improved clarity to my old 1980s RCA CD - the late Conny Plank would hopefully be delighted.
