This is the second solo album from Annie Lennox, following the success of her first album "Diva". On this album, it seems as if Ms. Lennox has experimented with the songs she has always wanted to sing on an album - her voice and songs ranging from sweet and almost dream-like on "Whiter Shade of Pale" and "Waiting in Vain" to soaring and compelling in "A Thin Line Between Love and Hate" and "Train in Vain". There is a strong influence of soul, and an almost Motown-like feel to some of the songs on this album, which makes it certainly worth a listen.
This album does take a couple of listens at first to get used to it, as if you're not quite sure if you like it - it's not the style of music Annie Lennox has traditionally produced before. Perservere, for after a short while you feel as if your CD collection could never have been without this album.
Annie Lennox fans would automatically enjoy this album to hear the emotion and energy she pours into a song. Newer Annie Lennox listeners, who have only heard her sing whilst in the Eurythmics might find this album different to what they might have expected, but will enjoy it nonetheless.
It's my personal opinion that Annie Lennox could sing a cheesy commercial jingle and it would still sound great.

There is only one review here at the time of writing this - Amazon.com has sixty three by comparison.
The americans seem to rate Annie Lennox more highly than we do for some reason. Strange. Maybe it's the CD cover that puts people off, who knows.
If you're a Eurythmics fan or have Diva or Bare you'll find this album is very different. At first, I didn't like it.
It grows on you. Simply put, it's gorgeous. Annie's voice is wonderful she puts so much soul into it, the Britney's of this world eat your heart out. The arrangements are deceptively simple and take second stage to Annie's voice, and thats exactly as it should be. The choice of songs here are lovely and at the risk of repeating myself Annie's voice is wonderful.
Wonderful, gorgeous, beautiful, don't even come close. Since I discovered this album recently it's been playing almost non-stop on my CD player ever since. An Amazon.com "essential recording", what more recommendation do you need?

Medusa – Annie Lennox

‘Medusa’ is the second solo album by the Scottish singer Annie Lennox, released in 1995. It follows on from her 1st album (‘Diva’) and consists entirely of cover songs from artists as diverse as Procol Harum, Neil Young, Paul Simon and the Persuaders! It reached #1 in the UK Album Charts and spawned 4 single releases.

Strangely, it had rather a luke-warm initial reception by the critics – but as it has sold over 6 million copies world-wide, I don’t suppose Annie Lennox has taken their views to heart! Anyway, I find this album a tad different to ‘Diva’ and it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. However, I think its brilliant. I don’t know on what basis the songs were chosen. I hope they are actually Annie’s favourites – and her wonderful voice is just magnetic. I love listening to the album in the car and when I’m alone in our lounge.

The good news is that, at the time of writing, ‘Prime’ members get to stream and listen to the album for free (check for the correct listing) – and, do, have a listen – it’s well worth it!

Tracks:
1. "No More "I Love You's""
2. "Take Me to the River"
3. "A Whiter Shade of Pale"
4. "Don't Let It Bring You Down"
5. "Train in Vain"
6. "I Can't Get Next to You"
7. "Downtown Lights"
8. "Thin Line Between Love and Hate"
9. "Waiting in Vain"
10. "Something So Right"
