An absolute must if you was there in the 80`s.
really excellant cd probably one of there best work`s if you like synth music a real must have. My personal all time favourite title song is jennifer on this cd really atmospheric and beautiful lyrics, a real joy.
I love the eurythmics and have every album they have brought out, sweet dreams is by far my favourite track.
Decent Electronic Pop Album
Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) is the 2nd album by Eurythmics and the 1st success. The album has some great songs. 'Love Is a Stranger' is a great song with brilliant vocals. 'I've Got an Angel' is a great sounding track. 'Wrap It Up' is average. 'I Could Give You (A Mirror)' is a good track. 'The Walk' is average. 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)' is no doubt the most known song on here. A brilliant track with great powerful vocals and great tune, very catchy. 'Jennifer' is a soothing track with a great tune. 'This Is the House' is average. 'Somebody Told Me' is an average too. 'This City Never Sleeps' is a good strong track. Strong electronic album.
The Sweet before the Sickly
How ironic that Annie Lennox was writing such dark and moody songs calling them Sweet Dreams 25 years ago and now write saccharine, soulless stuff calling it Songs of Mass Destruction. This is when their experimental, innovative and maybe a little self-indulgent sound started selling, before they became a household name and began making safer and more commercial (but equally enjoyable) stuff. I already owned the Greatest Hits, but there are only 2 singles on this album (this is no Thriller, that's for sure), the other 8 tracks are all worth a listen, especially the 6m40s masterpiece at the end, This City Never Sleeps, which, if memory serves, was used in the abysmal '9 1/2 Weeks' film soundtrack.
Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) (CD 1999)
The title track remains one of the Eurythmics most recognizable songs. Annie Lennox manages to give a soul music twist to 'synth pop'.
