5.0 out of 5 stars A real must for Eurythmics fans. Dec 30 2005
By Louis TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
At last, after years of speculation and ever-changing release dates, the Eurythmics have finally managed to release the remastered editions of their eight classic albums - minus the notable exception of the soundtrack to the movie "1984". It's fair to say right from the start that all of these remastered editions, gathered here in the "Boxed" deluxe package, were well worth the wait.
If anything, this complete anthology is a testimony to the ever-changing nature of a band as complex and evolutive as the Eurythmics were. From their experimental and obscure debut ("In the garden") right to the masterful pop of their final album ("Peace"), Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart were never afraid to change and to challenge their audience by trying something different. Just when you thought you had pinned them correctly as an icy-synth band via their legendary "Sweet Dreams" and "Touch" albums, they bounced back with two highly accessible and soulful rock albums (1985's "Be Yourself Tonight" and 1986's "Revenge") without losing one ounce of credibility. Expecting another rock album next, fans of the Eurythmics were instead delivered a dark and experimental tour de force about domestic alienation ("Savage", 1987) and were then granted a beautiful vintage pop album full of graceful melodies (1989's "We Too Are One") before the band parted ways for a decade. What an exhilarating and unpredictable ride, and what a beautiful musical legacy this band has left us...

5.0 out of 5 stars 8- pack worth the cash! March 12 2006
By Brent
Format:Audio CD
This ltd. ed. set is excellent! Any self-respecting Eurythmics fan MUST have this. The remastered music sounds better than it did originally. As well, most B-side single songs are included & remastered as well. There are a few notable exceptions with bonus songs such as a remix of You Have Placed A Chill..., Rich Girl, etc. Yet, with so many remastered bonus songs, who can complain?! In the Garden does take on a richer, deeper sound as in a past review. As well, it is great to see We Too Are One included - as opposed to excluded from the Ultimate Collection CD & DVD - & remastered and thereby relevant in sound quality. Furthermore, this boxed set is cheaper than buying the CDs individually...Get off your butt & buy it NOW!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Deluxe" is the word Dec 13 2005
By Philip A.Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After 26 months of cancelled release dates,the expanded/remastered Eurythmics CD series is finally here,and for those of you who want all 8 titles,the UK/Europe "Boxed" set is the cheapest way to get them.The CD's more than live up to expectations,with excellent sound,three-panel cardboard packaging(each with a side pocket for an attractive and informative booklet),and a very sturdy outer box.The bonus tracks are a combination of non-L.P. b-sides,original 12" dance remixes by the artists themselves,some unreleased songs & versions(including cover versions of tracks by Lou Reed,Thunderclap Newman,The Doors,The Beatles & French Chanteuse Francoise Hardy),and 2 later 1990's re-mixes by independant remixers(they're not bad).Unless you were an avid collector of the group's UK 7",12"& CD singles,all of the bonus material will be new to your collection.However,these discs(packed as they are with bonus tracks) only get about half of the group's vinyl-only songs and versions onto CD.Presumably,there will be some future archival box to get the remaining tracks onto CD.Amazon.com seems to be having exceptional difficulty obtaining or supplying this set to customers,but let there be no doubt:it was released in the UK & Europe November 14,2005,and widely advertised in UK music magazines by the manufacturer(BMG/Sony),whose advertisements specifically stated a Nov.14,2005 release date.If you can't get it here,then try record stores in England(as I did).The set is worth your extra effort to obtain it.Amazon was asking me to approve a second shipping postponement(until late January 2006).I declined,and obtained the set quite easily elsewhere.Amazon did some strange things,pretending that the set hadn't been released,temporarily removing customer reviews of the set,and stopping the marketplace merchants from offering the set(as they had been).

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect! Not Just For a Girl Who Thinks She Should Have Something Extreme! Dec 13 2005
By Henry Branham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This box set is FANTASTIC! I purchased it off Amazon.UK a few weeks back, despite the fact that I already own the entire Eurythmics catalog. The bonus tracks were certainly enticing, but considering the incredible musicianship of Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox's heavenly voice I was thrilled to see all the discs being remastered. It was worth every penny. The albums sound so fresh and electric all over again.

There are dozens of bonus tracks between the eight CDs, many are unreleased songs or hard to find rarities. Creem magazine once noted that "Grown Up Girls" was one of the most incredible b-sides ever recorded and they weren't lying. This song can be found on "Be Yourself Tonight". Other bonus highlights include cover versions of "Fame", "Come Together", "Last Night I Dreamnt Sombody Loved Me", and "Satellite of Love", and some cool original tunes like "Baby's Gone Blue" and "4/4 In Leather". There are also plenty of live tracks and remixes as well. In addition to the bonus tracks you get the standard albums all remastered and featuring extensive liner notes and incredible photos.

IN THE GARDEN - Great tracks include "Revenge" and "Caveman Head" as well as the moody "Never Gonna Cry Again". This album was the sign of great things to come and has always been treasured in my record collection.

SWEET DREAMS - Complete bliss from start to finish. "Love is a Stranger" and the title track are the obvious hits, but "The Walk" and "This City Never Sleeps" are phenomenal. Some of Dave & Annie's best stuff!

TOUCH - I love this album! It has a strong Kraftwerk feel that is both nihilistic and soulful at the same time. "No Fear No Hate No Pain No Broken Hearts" shows Annie Lennox's vocals zooming back and forth from heavenly to ferocious in record time!

BE YOURSELF TONIGHT - Contains a very stripped down vibe compared to their first three records. Lots of homage is paid to the Motown sound and Annie's voice is more soulful than ever. This LP showed Eurythmics to be much more than a standard new wave band as they branched out to embrace a heavier rock sound.

REVENGE - Great pop melodies can be heard all over this record. "Thorn in My Side" and "Miracle of Love" are perfect in every way.

SAVAGE - My personal favorite. "Beethoven (I Love To Listen To)" is the greatest music video every made as far as I'm concerned, but even without a video clip, this song is as fierce and in your face as it gets. Annie shows many sides of womanhood on this album, which conveys a deep personal edge throughout. Some songs are fun ("Wide Eyed Girl", "Do You Want to Break Up"), cold ("Savage", "I Need You"), manic ("Beethoven...", "Put the Blame on Me"), and others are downright sexy ("Heaven", "I Need a Man") and all are contrasted beautifully by moving pop tunes like "You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart" and "Shame". There is also a full length video album of SAVAGE that was released and it is not to be missed (please note that it is not included in this box set). Not only is Annie Lennox an incredible vocalist, but she is one hell of an actress!

WE TOO ARE ONE - The Eurythmics were hardly running out of steam when they recorded their last album of the era in 1989, but this one isn't as much fun as the others. It still boasts some excellent songs like "King & Queen of America", "My Baby's Gonna Cry", and, of course, the immaculate "Don't Ask Me Why". I was surprised to find myself singing right along to every song on the record even though it has been several years since I've listened to this. Great songs just stick in your head forever I guess.

PEACE - Ten years after their last studio album, Dave and Annie reunited to make this somber record that almost plays out like a concept album. Themes of inner peace and world peace dominate the record. It's very mellow and very unlike all of their previous works. "Seventeen Again" is the standout track, but as always, the lyrics of all the songs are undeniably well written and performed.

The Eurythmics transcended being just a "video band" long ago, and this box set proves full well why they were so successful. There is a new compilation package "Ultimate Collection" that compliments this set and features two brand new recordings. Strangely "Sexcrime (1984)" is nowhere to be found on that CD or as a bonus track on any of the CDs in this box set. The Eurythmics recently performed on the American Music Awards (2005) and they out shined every act there as far as I'm concerned. It was great to see some heavy duty talent on TV for a change.

Whether you already own these CDs or not, this box set comes highly recommended and features one great song after another. Hopefully The Eurythmics saga will continue, but whether it does or not, this box set will prove to be a perfect archive of their perfect legacy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Albums, Disappointing Box Set Dec 29 2005
By DAJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was and am a big Eurythmics fan, and I already own the original versions of all these albums. I bought the box set because I knew that I would want all the bonus tracks. They are, however, for the most part disappointing. Only "Grown Up Girls" really counts as essential, and some of the other bonus tracks actually detract from the albums they accompany.

The fans really should have been given something extra for buying the whole box at once. Currently, all 8 albums can be purchased together for $4 more than the price of the boxed set--so the advantage of buying this is a cardboard box and saving $4. There absolutely should have been a bonus disc containing the two new songs that appear on the "Ultimate Collection," plus other b-sides that do not appear on the remastered albums. And a special commemorative booklet would have been nice as well.

What would have really made it worth the price was the addition of "1984." I can understand why BMG didn't think there would be a public for a broader release of a remastered version of this album, but it absolutely should have been included in the box. I would wager that everyone who bought this box would have wanted that album as well.

There is no doubt that the remastering is good, cleaning up the recordings and improving sound separation. The horns on "Would I Lie to You" jump out of the speakers, for example. And "In the Garden" benefits the most--it sounds fantastic.

If you take out "Peace"--which didn't need remastering, and one or two of your least favorite discs, you would save a lot of money just buying the albums individually. If you must have them all, then this is a good way of getting them, but it should have been so much more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Watch out for the price!!! July 3 2006
By Pacote - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The price for each remastered CD included on this box is now $9.97...there are 8CDs in the box...so the price must be less than $80...but...NO!!! it's $123!!!! Buying them separately you'll save more than $43!!! Nonsense!!!

I give it 4 star for the content, but obviously 0 stars for the price!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars so much missing it's not even funny. July 14 2009
By Daniel W. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I find it hard to believe so many reviewers are calling this a complete set. While many have pointed out that 1984 is missing, what's also missing are crucial bonus tracks. Eurythmics were active during the height of the 80s 12" remix--so where are all those 12" versions that have never made it to CD? Not to mention, the "Touch Dance" album, which was basically like a full 12" collection in itself and could easily have been released as part of a 2-disc edition of Touch.

Sweet Dreams CD--why isn't the 12" version of Sweet Dreams included??? If you want it, you have to get the "Greatest Hits" CD, which, for some reason, includes the 12" version.

Touch--The full length version of Here Comes the Rain Again used on the 12" is only a matter of about 20 seconds longer than the album version. It should have been used on here. AND, how could they not, at last, give us the 12" version of Who's That Girl on CD??? Not to mention the mega long 12" version of Right by Your Side (even though I don't like this song).

1984--Well, the soundtrack isn't even included, so there's no way the 12" version of 1984 (Sexcrime) could have been a bonus track, although it could have been a bonus track on one of the other albums since it was one of their pop single releases.

Be Yourself Tonight--Does include a couple of 12" mixes at last. But misses the rare 12" of There Must Be An Angel, and while it has the ET mix of Would I Lie to You, it fails to include the "extended version" that was on the b-side of the original 12".

Revenge--obviously, they knew they could include 12" versions, because here, you get a load of them!

Savage--their perfect return to their synthesized roots misses the 12" mixes of You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart and Beethoven. Bummer.

We Too Are One--Misses the dance mix of Revival and remix of My My Baby's Gonna Cry.

Peace--if they had to 'remaster' this CD so soon after its original release and force us to buy it in this boxed set, then the full Rauhofer and Thunderpuss mixes of 17 Again SHOULD have been on here considering they were never released commercially.

Sorry, but considering it took more than 2 years for this collection to be released, they had PLENTY of time to realize that diehard fans who buy a boxed set expect pretty much EVERYTHING a band has had to offer during the course of their career. That's simply not what you get here.
