Why, it's Annie Lennox


DIVA Annie Lennox is still up there with the best of them.
Anyone who saw last year's Jools Holland Hootenany will testify to that - as Annie stole the show with her rendition of Why, and that's on a show which featured young upstarts Duffy, Adele and Lily Allen.
And as you would expect, a Collection of her solo efforts is a high quality compilation.
However I have two grumbles with this release.
Firstly, the album is in chronological order, which means that the album starts with classics such as Little Bird and Walking On Broken Glass, and ends with the relative unknowns of Pattern Of My Life and Shining Light.
On listening, you can't but feel the album charts the decline of a superstar.
The other gripe is that despite being titled The Annie Lennox Collection, this is only half of the story, and should only really be filed alongside The Best Of The Eurythmics in the CD rack.
