Eurythmics Albums Ranked

Eurythmics was a British pop duo consisting of members Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart. Stewart and Lennox were both previously in The Tourists, a band which broke up in 1980; Eurythmics were formed later that year in Wagga Wagga, Australia. The duo released their first studio album, In the Garden, in 1981 to little success, but went on to achieve global success when their second album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), was released in 1983. The title track became a worldwide hit that topped the charts in various countries including the US. The duo went on to release a string of hit singles and albums before they split up in 1990. By this time, Stewart was a sought-after record producer, while Lennox began a solo recording career in 1992 with her debut album Diva. After almost a decade apart, Eurythmics reunited to record their ninth album, Peace, released in late 1999. They reunited again in 2005 to release the single “I’ve Got a Life”, as part of a new Eurythmics compilation album, Ultimate Collection. The duo have won an MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist in 1984, the Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal in 1987, the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music in 1999, and in 2005 were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame. The Eurythmics have sold an estimated 75 million records worldwide. In 2017, the group was nominated for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and was nominated again in 2018.

9. 1984 (For the Love of Big Brother) (1984)

“I personally LOVE “every” song on the album and find it to be extremely original and one of a kind. Very underrated and every TRUE Eurythmics fan needs to get this CD and give it a try. If you loved “Sweet Dreams Are Made of This” and “Touch” then you’ll also love “For the Love of Big Brother”. Very similar sounds before they took a right turn into more mainstream rock-n-roll with “Be Yourself Tonight”.”

8. We Too Are One (1989)

“One Eurythmics album that was hard for me to get into at first, We Two Are One has seemed to grow on me over the years. The singles from the album were bland to me at first, although I have always had a soft spot for “Don’t Ask Me Why.” “King and Queen..” has grown on me, but songs like “My My Baby’s Gonna Cry” never blew my socks off. The 2nd half of the album makes up for some blunders on the first.”

7. Revenge (1986)

“This album has many songs about the woes of love and is a great break up “soundtrack” to process through bad relationships. The music is more main stream than earlier albums. Annie’s voice is lovely and croons with vibrant energy. A great album to remember the good old days, soothe an injured heart and gather strength or just enjoy Annie Lennox’s voice and Dave Stewart’s music.”

6. Peace (1999)

“This album does indeed lean towards a more melancholy, ballad style than found on most any eurythmics album of the past. However, there are some rockers here, like the freak-out, “Power To The Meek’ and “I Want it All,” both superb rock performances by both Lenox’s voice and Stewarts musicianship. “Beautiful Child” is, quite simply, the best ballad put to tape since “Here Comes The Rain Again,” and almost every song is rich with a catchy chorus and stinging guitar work. Stewart shines on the title track, while Lennox’s song writing proves its endurance on “17 Again,” ‘I Saved The World Today,” and the remarkable piano extravaganza, “Forever,” which sounds good enough to be on any Beatles album.”

5. Savage (1987)

“The lyrics and music are hypnotic, emotional, and cathartic. “Savage” was released around the time I was going through a difficult break up, and I turned to this album many times for solace–especially “You Have Put a Chill in My Heart.” While not accessible to your average listener, for a true blue Eurythmics fan it’s the best EVER!”

4. In the Garden (1981)

“This this an essential classic from 1981. Far and away the best album by this group. It provides the ultimate concoction of ethereal vocals, euphoric melodies, tantalizing synth wizardry, and a rhythm section (with Blondie’s drummer!) that will hit you deep. Forward-thinking alt-electronica as fresh and relevant now as it’s ever been.”

3. Be Yourself Tonight (1985)

“This album features a horn section on some cuts and a unique sense of rhyhthm that actually draws upon all of the Eurythmics’ musical influences,from electronica to (then) contemporary dance/R&B/soul. This was the bands biggest hit album overall up to this point and the presense of the Motownish hybrids of the driving rock and soul of “Would I Lie To You” and the emmaculately beautiful “There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart)” are a big help in that respect. That latter song is also astonishingly well written and gives Annie a chance to really stretch her vocal range with some excellent harmonies. “

2. Touch (1983)

“Eurythmics continued to strengthen their repertoire with “Touch”, their third album. Yet again, only the three hits “Here Comes The Rain Again”, “Right By Your Side” and “Who’s That Girl” were given airplay when the other six tracks were just as superior. In fact, this album marked a more experimental turn with the epic “Paint A Rumor” and “No Fear, No Hate, No Pain (No Broken Hearts)” as well as “Aqua”. “Regrets”, “Cool Blue” and “The First Cut” also showcased a darker, edgier Eurythmics sound. Not one track was out of place, and not one note was wasted on this album.”

1. Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) (1983)

“The chemistry between Stewart and Lennox was undeniable, and an intense romance developed. While their passion proved too much offstage, they thrived musically and developed their own sound. They called themselves Eurythmics and launched into global stardom with the massively popular album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).”
