6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 1 Jan. 2006
Format: Audio CD
This 1987 album saw Eurythmics return to their electronic/experimental roots after the soul/R&B excursion Be Yourself Tonight (1985) and the full-bodied pop-rock of Revenge (1986). It has been substantially enhanced with the addition of 5 bonus tracks and deluxe packaging that includes a booklet with historical notes.
Whilst Beethoven (I Love To Listen To) is experimental yet catchy and I've Got A Lover (Back In Japan) tuneful and pleasant enough, it's with the buoyant Do You Want To Break Up? that the album really gathers momentum.
The next 3 songs are true classics, each mirroring a different side of Eurythmics at their most creative. The deceptively breezy You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart is a strange mix of cynicism and hope, despair and elation.
Shame is perfect 60s nostalgia at its most evocative and hypnotically tuneful, while the eerie title track creates a beautifully bleak landscape of alienation and despair - Love Is A Stranger devoid of romanticism.
Atypical of the album, I Need You has prominent acoustic guitars and a live feel. Brand New Day starts out as a moving morning-after ballad and develops into an atmospheric uptempo number.
Amongst the bonus tracks, my favourites are the extended philharmonic version of Beethoven and the dance mix of Shame. There is also a powerful live version of I Need You, and the album concludes with the Lennon/McCartney song Come Together.
The bonus tracks and the de luxe packaging has improved an already classic album by these masters of innovative synth-pop. Savage is a must-have for Eurythmics fans and all those who love timeless pop music.

I don't want to waffle on too much, but this is the best Eurythmics album ever made. With the exception of "Do You Want To Break Up" this album is all Gold (The other song being just silvery). Stand out tracks for me are "Shame", "You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart", "I Need You" and "Beethoven (I Love To Listen To)" (The beginning is quite scary...if your in a scary mood like...ahem...).

Annie is suberb, especially in the acoustic part.

If you prefered the rockier, more commercial Eurythmics sound, then try 'Be Yourself Tonight' or 'Revenge'...but for me, it's the more Savage, the better.

10/10

Although Eurythmics began their career as dark, electronic experimentalists, by the mid 80s they had become more famous for their big breezy chart fodder, from There Must Be Angel (Playing With My Heart) to Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves. "Savage" saw an abrupt left turn back to their roots. (This is an excerpt from a full review to be found at the Pop Lifer blog - just search for "Eurythmics Savage" and "poplifer").

The 1987 single "Beethoven (I Love To Listen To)" must have come as something of a shock for U2 fans seduced by upbeat anthems like "When Tomorrow Comes" or catchy-chorused FM rock like "Thorn In My Side". Christ, "Beethoven" must have come as a shock for people who had spent their entire lives listening to Joy Division, Siouxsie and the Banshees and early Cure records. Constructed from bruising drum loops, a shuddering synth line and stabbing strings, the verses saw Lennox adopt a cruel, teasing, cut-glass English accent and muse aloud lines like "Did I tell you I was lying by the way, when I said I wanted a new mink coat?/ I was just thinking about something sleek to wrap around my tender throat".

"Beethoven" was promoted with an extraordinary video by the unknown Sophie Muller (now famed for her work with Blur, Radiohead, Coldplay and Brandon Flowers). Not so much a pop video as outre performance art, it stars Lennox as a seething housewife trapped in a grisly American Mid-West Home. She knits with red-eyed fury and wages domestic war with a psychotic little girl and a sinister transvestite, before finally morphing into a glittering, terrifying vamp, wrapped in a shimmering gown and a Marilyn Monroe mane of bright blonde curls.

Well, this is the album where the Eurythmics lost their fairweather fans yet delivered a classic that is amongst their best.
After an album release per year, maybe it was just one album too many that led to it being viewed as a bit of a flop.
The sound though is that of a band doing exactly what they wanted, with a return to the electro/soul style of 'Sweet Dreams' after the loss of direction and wee bit over-commercial 'Revenge'.
For me the album really takes off after 'You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart' with every track thereafter a classic combining lyrical beauty with perfectly harmonised music.My personal favourite is the title track 'Savage', a bleakly beautiful song that tells it how it is (it must have been a scary place in their heads at the time).
A masterpice yes, but a flawed one. I think it was a mistake to to include tracks 2 & 3, I've Got A Lover (Back In Japan) & Do You Want To Break Up?, at least in this tracklisting as they are weak and more suitable as b-sides. Just ten quality tracks would have fitted with the nine or ten on most of their previous lps. Additionally, I think it was a mistake to use 'Beethoven' as the lead single when it was a bit confrontational compared to stronger tracks like 'I Need A Man' which no doubt would have achieved the higher chart placing that they deserved. A pity the album wasn't rejigged with this opportunity, however we get the extras which are of interest though not essential.
Anyway, buy the album and make-up your own mind.
