    1991's GREATEST HITS is a somewhat conservative compilation which unfortunately overlooks both 1981's IN THE GARDEN and 1984's FOR THE LOVE OF BIG BROTHER, two of Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox's most interesting and experimental albums. That said, it's an excellent overview of the duo's career.
    All of the band's singles and some of their better album tracks are featured here, in a balanced survey of their evolution from the chilly English art-rockers who recorded the hypnotic "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)," to the soulful R&B-influenced pair responsible for the ripping "Would I Lie to You," the passionate "Angel," and the billowing "There Must Be an Angel Playing with My Heart." Many of Eurythmics' albums are somewhat uneven--1984's TOUCH and 1985's BE YOURSELF TONIGHT are perhaps the best--but this 63-minute collection is an excellent starting point for the neophyte.

    Q (4/00, p.107) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...they had their moments. Her lyrics were anodyne and she seemed to spend most of her time polishing up her unsexiness, but he was a master of the layered soundscape..."
