About this album

Peace is the ninth album by Eurythmics, released in 1999.

Following their first performance together in eight years at a record company party, David A. Stewart and Annie Lennox began writing and recording together for the first time since 1989.

The title was designed to reflect the duo’s ongoing concern with global conflict and world peace. The record was promoted with a concert on the Greenpeace Vessel Rainbow Warrior II, where they played a mixture of old and new songs.

“I Saved The World Today” was the lead single, reaching number eleven on the UK singles chart (their highest charting hit since 1986). Another single, released at the beginning of 2000, “17 Again,” made the UK top 40, and topped the U.S. dance chart.

Critics were impressed overall with the record, although some commented that it “lacked the power” (NME) of their previous releases and “quietly acknowledged that their solo careers had failed” (Q Magazine), despite the fact that both of Annie Lennox’s solo efforts reached the number one position in the UK charts, Diva going four times platinum in the UK and three times platinum in the U.S. (Q Magazine, themselves placing it in their top 50 albums of 1992) and Medusa going double-platinum in both countries, respectively.

On November 14 2005, SonyBMG repackaged and released Eurythmics’ back catalog as “2005 Deluxe Edition Reissues.” Each of their eight studio albums’ original track listings are supplemented with bonus tracks and remixes. For unknown reasons, many songs on the 2005 reissue of Peace are alternate mixes compared to the original 1999 release.

    My god I love this album, second to Savage, but very very close second. There's quite a few stand out tracks that are just superb, the lyrics, musicality, vocals. I used to think Annie's voice had aged a bit in this album, but I realised that she'd just changed her singing style a bit, it's fantastic.

    have a special, biased relationship with this album, when I was 10 or so I listened to virtually nothing else-)) that said, I think it's actually pretty good and far from weak

    Not sure why this album gets such a bad reputation. I think it's wonderful - full of beautiful songs that easily stands up to their earlier work. I would love for them to reunite again.

    If you find super-mega-hits like Sweet Dreams or Here Comes The Rain Again you will probably not find it, but if you look for Peace during listening to this album, it may be not be just a word! 10/10

    If this is their weakest album, and this is the worst they can do, then they are truly geniuses! I love this album!

    I feel like this is their weakest album and yet it has so many good tracks - 17 Again, I've Tried Everything, Beautiful Child...
