Annie Lennox: Diva (1992)

lennox divaBy Scott Goldfine

Striking English singer-songwriter Annie Lennox, who reaped fame and fortune as one-half of the Eurythmics, sheds Dave Stewart for her first solo effort, “Diva.” The androgynous vocalist makes the transition seamlessly. Frequently dwelling on the agony of rock relationships, Lennox emotes with abundant passion.

Her brand of R&B-inspired pop manages to be eclectic yet accessible.
