Peace is the eighth and final studio album by British duo Eurythmics, released in October 1999. It was the band's first album of new material in ten years, following 1989's We Too Are One. Eurythmics returned with a collection of lush pop tracks caressed by Annie Lennox's sultry vocals flowing over Dave Stewart's enthralling studio arrangements. The mood struck on the Eurythmics' ninth studio album is one of warm, organic ambiance akin to William Orbit's work with Madonna. Songs such as the airy 17 Again (which finds Lennox cleverly referencing their hit Sweet Dreams) and the Burt Bacharach-flavored I Saved the World Today are sophisticated, unpretentious pop compositions light years beyond the band's early synth-pop work. Balancing out Peace's sedate moments are such up-tempo tracks as the wah-wah guitar-driven Power to the Meek and the equally rocking I Want It All, a track punctuated by Lennox's exuberant whoops. One of the most triumphant moments on Peace is Forever, a sweeping number wrapped in a George Martin-inspired orchestral arrangement straight off a late-period Beatles album.
