Notes

There are two distinct versions of the album: the 1999 original and the 2005 remaster.
Differences have been observed on almost all tracks on the 2005 remaster:
– On "17 Again", at the breakdown around 2:37, the "hey hey" vocals are flanged, the following pause is longer and has no bell sound.
– "I Saved The World Today" has less prominent strings at 1:48, and features no backing vocal / counter melody line at 3:36.
– "Power To The Meek" has significant differences. From 1:11 to 1:30 the latter part of the 2nd verse is replaced with a repeat of the 1st verse. In the breakdown at 1:52 there is no cowbell. The guitar solo at 2:08 is longer (1999 version omits the first half). The end choruses repeat "I'm alive, yeah, it's alright", whereas the 1999 version adds on top the above combined 2nd/1st verse verse vocals.
– "Beautiful Child" has percussion in stereo from 0:30 (1999 is centered) and hi-hat is more prominent.
– On "Anything But Strong", the ascending synth lines starting at 0:21 are much more pronounced. On the outro, synth lines are centered and the constant synth note that's in 1999 is almost inaudible.
– On "Peace is Just a Word", drums starting at 1:28 are brighter. At 4:45 there are "do do do" ad-libs that are absent from 1999 version, which instead has prominent guitars. 1999 version continues with the guitar outro and full beat to fade, but on the 2005 version drums are faded out at 5:20, after which the song continues to end fade with only vocals, strings, brass and very basic percussion.
– "I've Tried Everything" is markedly different. While both versions have the same vocals and guitars, synths dominate the 1999 version and the back-beat percussion appears to be all programmed, with no drums. The 2005 version has full band backing throughout.
– "I Want It All" has a very brief breakdown at 1:39 that is not on the 1999 version.
– "My True Love" has more of the ominous sounding synth sounds throughout. During the break part at 3:21 to 3:38, the synths are 'reversed'. 2005 version has less synths, but on the 1999 version the ominous synths can actually be heard. 2005 version also has added strings during the break.
– "Forever" has added horns on the intro.

      Sie sind wieder da. Die Pop-Diva Annie Lennox und der Pop-Gitarren-Gott Dave Stewart. Eine Reunion kann einerseits schön, andererseits aber auch nicht so schön sein. Bei dem mir nun vorliegenden Fall kann ich mich nicht so recht entscheiden, ob Eurythmics wieder da sind. In dem ersten Song "17 again" wünscht sich Annie noch einmal 17 zu sein und verweist mit der Textzeile "Sweet dreams are made of anything" auf alte Zeiten. In "I saved the world today" beschreibt sie eine glückliche und fröhliche neue Welt, aber so eindrucksvoll, daß man ihr abnimmt, daß es diese auch irgendwann mal wieder geben wird. Diese beiden ersten Songs sind noch ruhig gehalten. Mit dem dritten Stück "Power to the meek" folgt endlich ein rockiges Stück, daß aber zu sehr an "Would I lie to you?" erinnert. Sorry, schiefgelaufen. Dann folgen mit "Anything but strong" und "I´ve tried everything" sogar Songs mit orchestraler Untermalung. Naja. Bis zum achten Song "I want it all" muß man schlußendlich warten, bis die alten Eurythmics wieder erkennbar sind. Einfach nur schön. Also: Reunion nicht so erfolgreich, aber hinter sich gebracht. Nur bitte beim nächsten Album wieder mehr Rock, oder eine Mischung aus Alt und Neu wie bei "Forever". Fazit: Diese Platte hört sich mehr nach Annie Lennox als nach Eurythmics an und das muss nun wirklich nicht sein, oder Dave ???

        This is an excellent "Coda" for the Eurythmics anyway. A "must have" for fans of this group.

          Does anybody know which mixes this vinyl edition uses? 1st CD, 2nd CD, a bit of both? Are there any edits to reduce the side playing time?

            Half-baked and uninspiring, "Peace" arrived much too late to change anything about Eurythmics themselves, or the issues they so desperately address with it. It don't even sound like a "Eurythmics" album as such, more like a Dave Stewart solo-effort (imagine him taking over from U2, or Tom Petty, who gave up on their own album making) that could have featured any other vocalist just the same. Annie doesn't really make a difference here, sounding rather forced, the annoying lament and patronising endlessly about the pain of the world. In the end it turns sounding like a pain in the neck.

            If for some consolation, two songs partially do stand out - the jazzy "I Saved the World Today" (despite one too many "hey heys", "here to stays" and "gone aways") is the only proper song off the album and for that reason a deserved choice of a single, and the closing number "Lifted" (which pleasantly reminds of Annie's "Cold"). "Power to the Meek" adds a nice "feel good" moment to the song. The remaining part of "Peace" is sadly forgettable and shallow, and nowhere near on par with their better known earlier work. Which is too bad - knowing their ilk, "Peace" could have been a truly great comeback album. Instead, it's a boring and hopelessly dated affair.

            It feels like I'm 17 again? More 71 like.
