Last 80's Eurythmics album

"This album was my favourite record of the 1989-90 season. We were fortunate enough to have Eurythmics tour Australia in December, and they played several songs from this album at the concert I attended here in Hobart, including the wonderful ballad Angel and the elegant, stylish pop of Don't Ask Me Why. Other choice cuts include the valedictory When The Day Goes Down , which for 10 years stood as a fitting coda to the group's terrific run of 80's songs, and the jaunty, lighthearted single Revival. This record has a professional pop sheen to it that marks it as being from the late phase of the band's career, and the quirky, ear-catching sounds of the Eurythmics' innovative early 80's records are missing, yet it's still a good album."
The Last Eurythmics Album of the 80s, a classic

"No more heavy synth riffs for the Eurythmics, its onto more pop like music than New Wave, yet still keeping the New Wave roots slightly, such in songs like "Sylvia". Annie delivers more powerful vocals in songs such as "Revival", "How Long", "You Hurt Me (And I Hate You)" and "When the Day Goes Down" than "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)". I'd like to make special mention on the song "When the Day Goes Down" probably one of my favorite songs of all time, could bring tears to even the toughest people. No average singer could create that effect."
Eurythmics: We Too Are One (1989)

"In early 1988, Annie Lennox suffered great tragedy when she gave birth to a still-born baby. I do not have children at this moment, so through experience, I have no idea how Annie must have felt. But through commen sense, I understood what must feel like for a mother to lose her child when the child is born. But Annie pulled herself together as most people do.
In 1989, Annie moved on with her life, where she and David, as Eurythmics released their final studio recorded album of the 80s. The album is entitled, WE TOO ARE ONE. This album shows that Eurythmics were going out with a bang. This is an incredible album and I have enjoyed it since the day I got it, although, it does not match up to that of their seventh album, SAVAGE. But there are many great songs on this album for everyone to enjoy. This whole album is for everyone to enjoy.
WE TWO ARE ONE
The album's title track, although instead of writing it as "We Too Are One", as in the album title, they wrote this title track as "We Two Are One", Two as in the word-form for the number. An amazing song that should be heard by every fan. No excuses.
THE KING & QUEEN OF AMERICA
The third single from the album. This song is definitely my favorite off of this album. The choruses are absolutely incredible. Annie's voice is absolutely amazing and powerful.
(MY MY) BABY'S GONNA CRY
The fourth single from the album. Great song, where David Stewart actually sings the second half of each verse, right after Annie sings the first half of each verse. David, just like Annie, has got an ace of a voice.
DON'T ASK ME WHY
The second single from the album. Great song.
The fifth & final single from the album. A beautiful, moving ballad. I could listen to this one over and over again. This song is actually about her still-born son. This song came from Annie's heart, which gives me more reason to love this song.
The first single from the album. Not bad.
YOU HURT ME (AND I HATE YOU)
Another classic break-up song. This is another one of my favorites.
WHEN THE DAY GOES DOWN
What a way to close out the 80s. Eurythmics were one hell of an 80s synthesized band. They have made millions of fans around the world, most of who still enjoy their music today. After the release of this album, Annie and Dave went on to persue other projects. In 1992, Annie Lennox had released her first solo album entitled, DIVA, which features the hit single, "Why". In the same year, Annie even provided a theme song for the 1992 remake of BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA. The theme song for that film is entitled, "Love Song For A Vampire". But this album shows how great Eurythmics were. Buy this album and enjoy it."
