The Annie Lennox Collection
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
How is it possible that Annie Lennox has never released a greatest hits collection? That's the question you may find yourself asking as you listen to the fabulous (and fabulously atypical) diva's first. Well, for one thing, she hasn't had all that many "hits" per se as a solo artist (her Eurythmics' material is sorely missed here). And Annie we love you for your avant-artsy pop songs! Skip the two rather lackluster new recordings ("Pattern of My Life" and "Shining Light") and revel in the deliciously weird contours of her dramatic voice and the drama of her synth symphonies.
