Eurythmics - Revenge - 1986
I've never been a HUGE fan of Eurythmics, but I DO love Missionary Man. Not one of their most known or popular, even though it was a single, I don't know why I love it so much. Maybe because it's so strong and fast, and the melody is catchy. Maybe because it reminds me a bit of INXS and Midnight Oil and Big Pig, who all released albums about the same time. It's the harmonica, dude. Plus, that video for it kicks ass.
As for the rest of the album, it is a quality, well written and performed album. I'm just not huge on the melodies. They're good, don't get me wrong. They just don't capture me like MM, and the album tends to start sounding a little too Adult Contemporary for me. Maybe if I had been ten years older when I started listening to it, it may have grabbed me more. But, if that was the case, I may not have liked the rest of the music released at that time as much, due to age. Isn't it weird how your age can determine how much you like specific types of music regardless of how well they are?
Anyway, this may or may not be the only Eurythmics album I post, not counting the Tourists. I might post 1984 or one of their first three albums, but we'll have to wait and see. More than likely, as I mentioned in my housekeeping post, I'll get to them eventually.
