Eurythmics - Peace (1999) Retail CD
Rather unexpectedly, in October of 1999 the Eurythmics reappeared after ten years of silence. By that time, Annie had done two solo albums, "Diva" (1992) and "Medusa" (1995), and Dave had done at least four solo albums, "Dave Stewart And The Spiritual Cowboys" (1990), "Honest" (1991), "Greetings From The Gutter (1994) and "Sly Fi" (1998). So, it was with great anticipation that I bought "Peace".
I was disappointed to a degree. "17 Again" was a decent song that didn't get the airplay it deserved. "I Saved The World Today" was probably the best track on the cd and likewise received no airplay inmore… America. There were a few other gems like "I've Tried Everything" and "Anything But Strong", but the album as a whole did not even come close to their earlier work. What I was hoping for was that this album would mark a regular output of new material, say, every two or three years. Not to be. Instead, us fans were saddled with Annie's depressing "Bare" cd.
Like one other reviewer here has already noted, this remastered version is not the same as the original American version released in October 1999. While I duly note all of the other reviewer's observations, the only one I noticed was the mutilating of "I've Tried Everything". What was Mr. Stewart thinking?? He ruined a great song. On the original it was a more delicate ballad, but now it's sort of hip-hop sounding and uptempo. I didn't like it, and I noticed it right away, so like the other reviewer here said, keep your old copy.
So, the remastering is solid, though since it was only released six years ago, the audio hadn't aged that much to require remastering anyway. The liner notes and extra photos from the time period are nice, but again, no lyrics included for all the songs. Why Dave, why??!! Missed opportunity since, in my opinion, the Pet Shop Boys are the only ones to get remasters absolutely perfect with liner notes from the duo, all the lyrics, one disc for the remastered album and an extra disc filled with ALL b-sides and extended mixes and remixes from the time period of each album! The unreleased tracks here are acoustic versions of "17 Again", "I Saved The World Today" and "Beautiful Child", all of which sound more like demos and could have been omitted. The best of the lot is the unreleased cover of Thunderclap Newman's minor 1969 hit "Something In The Air". I enjoyed this more than half the songs on the original album!
"Peace" was average work at best, and now that Mr. Stewart saw fit to remix and tinker with certain tracks it made the experience even less satisfying.
