Biography

“My curiosity always seems to lead me into interesting experiences,” says Annie Lennox.

Certainly, in a career spanning four decades, the singer-songwriter's creative muse has taken her down some remarkable pathways.

Product Description

CD Description

This long-awaited greatest hits compilation from one of Scotland's best-known and best-loved stars follows her triumphant 2007 comeback album Songs Of Mass Destruction. Songs from that album are included here, as well as tracks from her other three solo albums Diva, Medusa and Bare, several of them top ten hits. The collection also features two newly recorded cover versions of songs by Ash and Keane, and its striking cover photo was shot by rocker Bryan Adams.

BBC Review

Blessed with a peerless set of pipes and a fierce musical intelligence, together as the Eurythmics, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart figured out how smart and savvy pop songs could retain their artistic integrity whilst simultaneously selling out stadiums around the globe.

With the release of her first solo album, Diva (1992), it looked as though she'd carry on where she and Stewart had left off.

Though Lennox's solo career may have notched up impressive sales and garnered Grammy's galore, based on what's presented on this release there's a sense that it never quite lived up to Diva's early promise.

Whilst no less than five songs from that album are highlighted here, the rest of the selection starkly shows that the law of diminishing returns had kicked in early on.

Her backwards-glancing homage, Medusa (1995), Bare (2003) and 2007's Songs of Mass Destruction only merit a couple of tracks apiece. Throw in her Love Song For A Vampire (from 1993's Bram Stoker's Dracula) and the obligatory 'previously unreleased' tempters, and what you're left with something that manages to be less than the sum of its parts.

Though it should feel celebratory, it comes across as a slightly forlorn tribute, running a bit thin the further out it moves out from Diva's high bench-mark. This serves to remind us that though she's always undoubtedly been a performer of startling quality, her solo writing has been distinctly patchy.

Lennox is on record as saying that this album was a way of drawing a line on this part of her life which suggests that she is moving into the realm of being a post-career pop star.

Whilst the newly recorded extra tracks - a cover of Ash's Shining Light and Patterns Of My Life (written by Keane's Tom Chaplin) - may give punters a reason to buy an otherwise less-than-essential-collection, they add precious little to what we already know. --Sid Smith

Format: Audio CD
What a wonderful collection this is. When Annie began her solo career in earnest with 'Why' and the album 'Diva' she was the biggest selling UK female vocalist and had 'Brit' awards left , right and centre. Since then her popularity has waned slightly but this collection should put Annie back in the charts where she belongs.
Annies big hits 'Why', 'Little Bird' and 'Walking On Broken Glass' are all included here on disc one along with the massive hit 'No More I Love Yous' taken from her second solo album'Medusa'. There is a also a fine selection of 'should have been hits'including 'Pavement Cracks'and 'A Thousand Beautiful Things' the highlights from her third and rather dark album 'Bare'. Why these tracks were not hit singles is a mystery along with 'Dark Road' and 'Sing' from Annies most recent wonderful album 'Songs Of Mass Destruction'
From the point of view of the fan who already has everything , there are two new tracks including Annies new single 'Shining Light' which is such an upbeat and positive song that must surely give Annie a deserved hit.
Also for the fans there is a second disc which includes harder to find gems such as Annies Ocsar winning track 'Into The West' taken from the soundtrack of the final Lord of the Rings epic 'The Return of The King', and Annies take on 'Everytime We Say Goodbye' recorded for the fabulous
'Red Hot and Blue' album. The only thing missing here for me is Annie's single with Al Green 'Put A little Love In Your Heart' which gave Annie her fist US Top Ten hit away from Eurythmics.
Disc three includes a fine selection on Annies wonderful videos. The video for 'Shining Light' is already a favourite as Annie appears to be a having a great time in her dressing up box!!
This is such a good collection of quality songs, and with 3 discs it's excelent value for money too.

Having never really been a big fan of the Eurithmics, I really love Annie as a solo artist. I love all the tracks on the album - my favourites being Pattern of my Life and Shining Light (I actually didnt realise that this was an old Ash song until my husband pointed this out, but prefer Annie's version). I cant understand some reviews calling it "depressing". OK, its not exactly dance music, but easy listening and music to listen to when you want to relax etc. Get a life!

How can one measure the whole worth of this wonderful woman and her work?

Mrs Wolf done good. Standing in line for two hours yesterday evening in one
of London's largest musical emporiums means that Mr Wolf is now the very proud
owner of a signed copy (with love no less) of Ms Lennox's retrospective collection.

Thankyou Mrs Wolf.

The two CDs and one DVD which comprise this inestimable release present an
overview of her solo work to date. Many of the tracks will, of course, be familiar
to her fans but it is good nonetheless to have them lined up according to her will
and whim. Ms Lennox has every reason to be proud.

The voice needs no introduction. Undoubtably one of the great voices of our time.
Instantly recognisable. A touchstone for all that might count for wisdom and
true feeling in a world gone mad. A national treasure. (I hope that we may be
forgiven for sharing just a little of Scotland's glory).

I guess we all have our favorite songs from her repertoire. Some of mine are here.

The achingly beautiful melody and lyrics of 'Why' must surely have the power
to thaw even the coldest heart. It connects at the deepest emotional level because
each and every one of us has had a 'Why' moment at some point in our lives.

That's what she does you see. Touches us. Reassures us. Connects her fears with ours.
Cheers us on. These are rare qualities in a world of quick fix musical formulae.
There is no formula here other than solid gold. ( Au. Atomic number 79 ).

So good to hear 'Love Song For A Vampire' from Mr Coppola's 'Dracula' again and
a small pity that the video was not included on the DVD.

Only a Scottish person (and I am one) with his skewed sense of national identity could have written the above review (kingboogie). Though Ms Lennox now enjoys more success States-side (where she is regarded as a musical legend)it is testament to the staying power that puts her right up there with near contemporaries Sting, Madonna, George Michael, Kate Bush and Bjork that this album has gone top ten. Class.

help,i am just about to order this 3 disc package,mainly for the music which looks to be a fab-u-lous selection of annies best work.
but i am getting really confused over the inclusion or not of the "love song for a vampire "video.
now if you look at the FULL listing above ( click on the option and you get the whole list) it states it is track 10 on the dvd.so why are people here ,namely mr woolf saying that it is not on the disc !!!!
if you also play the promotional video on this Amazon page above- the one that shows the cover art with the brian adams photo,it DOES show the love song for a vampire promo vid is included.
so far so confused.
well i suppose i will have to wait for my copy to arrive in the morning and check it out myself !?
but if it isn,t on the 3rd disc - amazon ,expect some serious complaining from me about the Trade Description Act.you cannot simply go around puting wrong information on a website and AGAIN on the promo film for the same product on your website and expect to get away with it.
however if love song for a vampire IS on the dvd disc then what the heck are these people here on about ?
so i,ll post again tommorrow,-expect some reaction one way or another.
p.s. why cannot people get the facts right in the first place and then it all makes one little less problem to carry round in your head.
i do try to de clutter my brain everynight before going to sleep as there is so much trivia swimming around in our world today.
as regards the packaging again i will report back in the morning when this beauty arrives.
