5.0 out of 5 stars More savage beauty July 29 2006
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This 1987 album saw Eurythmics return to their electronic/experimental roots after the soul/R&B excursion Be Yourself Tonight (1985) and the full-bodied pop-rock of Revenge (1986). It has been substantially enhanced with the addition of 5 bonus tracks and deluxe packaging that includes a booklet with historical notes.

Whilst Beethoven (I Love To Listen To) is experimental yet catchy and I've Got A Lover (Back In Japan) tuneful and pleasant enough, it's with the buoyant Do You Want To Break Up? that the album really gathers momentum.

The next 3 songs are true classics, each mirroring a different side of Eurythmics at their most creative. The deceptively breezy You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart is a strange mix of cynicism and hope, despair and elation.

Shame is perfect 60s nostalgia at its most evocative and hypnotically tuneful, while the eerie title track creates a beautifully bleak landscape of alienation and despair - Love Is A Stranger devoid of romanticism.

Atypical of the album, I Need You has prominent acoustic guitars and a live feel. Brand New Day starts out as a moving morning-after ballad and develops into an atmospheric uptempo number.

Amongst the bonus tracks, my favourites are the extended philharmonic version of Beethoven and the dance mix of Shame. There is also a powerful live version of I Need You, and the album concludes with the Lennon/McCartney song Come Together.

The bonus tracks and the de luxe packaging has improved an already classic album by these masters of innovative synth-pop. Savage is a must-have for Eurythmics fans and all those who love timeless pop music.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Eurythmics' underrated masterpiece. Jan. 2 2006
By Louis TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
When the Eurythmics released this album in late 1987, "Savage" heralded yet another turning point for a duo that had already established one thing with their career : expect the unexpected when it comes to Eurythmics. After the soulful "Be Yourself Tonight" in 1985 and the rocking "Revenge" in 1986, the Eurythmics once again challenged their audience by going back to their electronic roots, and came up with their most experimental work yet.

"Savage" opens with the overlooked "Beethoven (I love to listen to)" single, and it sets the tone perfectly : it's the inner monologue of a woman on the verge of domestic breakdown, whose thoughts are speeding too fast for her to keep pace. By the time the song ends, emotions are all over the place and you can feel that the protagonist of the song has indeed imploded. The cycle of songs that follow are a chronicle of her disintegration ("Do you want to break up", "You have placed a chill in my heart", the title track), and eventually of her redemption ("I need you", "Brand new day"). It's a formidable concept, as well as a fascinating ride; the album's palpable darkness and complexity will ring a bell with anyone who's ever suffered or wandered through life looking for a sense of purpose, but it leaves the listener on a hopeful note.

On the musical side of things, this album might be their most ecclectic yet, jumping from raunchy rock ("Wide-eyed girl", "I need a man") and atmospheric grooves ("Beethoven", "Put the blame on me", "Heaven") to sophisticated electronic pop songs ("Shame", "You have placed a chill in my heart", "I've got a lover", the title track). It even features a straightforward guitar-and-vocals track, "I need you", that finds Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart at their most stripped down.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Work of Heart Feb. 11 2005
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, this is the pinnacle of Eurythmics' recording history. It's stark, it's emotionally raw, it's loud, it's challenging. It wasn't a top five hit? Shocking.
From the opening assault of electronic shotgun percussion to the chiming vocal overdubs that close the album, SAVAGE stands as an unheralded epic achievement.
I Need A Man seems to be the only song remembered from this monumental album. Although it is a massive song, there is so much more to this work. You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart. Savage. Shame. Put The Blame On Me. Do You Want To Break Up. Every song a gem. Every beat was a wound. Every note out of Annie Lennox's mouth had a reason for being there. Nothing before or after sounded like this album and I think it was because every artist was afraid to expose their 'wiring' as bare as these two artists were able to.
Do yourself a favor. Invest in SAVAGE as the artists invested in their art. You owe it to yourself. Throw caution to the wind. Toss aside your urge to purchase anything subpar. The emotion is real. The music is in your face and at your throat. Revel in a work of art.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Eurythmics album ever May 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was thrilled to read all the reviews here praising this album. Silly me, I thought I was the only one! I am a long-time fan of Eurythmics and Annie Lennox and this CD remains my favorite of all time. The lyrics and music are hypnotic, emotional, and cathartic. "Savage" was released around the time I was going through a difficult break up, and I turned to this album many times for solace--especially "You Have Put a Chill in My Heart." While not accessible to your average listener, for a true blue Eurythmics fan it's the best EVER!
