Annie Lennox- Medusa

Annie Lennox- Medusa

19.99

Annie's 2nd solo album, originally released in 1995. Post-Beatles, the virtues of deft song interpretation have been consistently devalued in favour of self-contained composer-performers, seldom more so than in the initial response to this sequel to Annie Lennox's triumphant solo debut, Diva. That album's gripping originals deserve acclaim, but the lush Scottish alto remains one of the most riveting pop singers of the past two decades, and this smartly chosen, meticulously arranged collection of cover versions boasts its own abundant charms in her selection of obscure gems and bona fide classics from Al Green, Procol Harum, Neil Young, the Clash, the Temptations, Paul Simon, Bob Marley, and the Blue Nile. The songs are the rightful stars here, and Lennox brings passion and nuance to a set that plays beautifully. From the cinematic heartbreak of No More I Love You's to the faithful recreation of the Blue Nile's Downtown Lights, this is ravishing pop.
