Annie Lennox - Medusa
The standout tracks on this album are clearly the fantastic cover of the obscure "No More I Love You's" (I honestly didn't know it was a cover until I looked it up today. Apparently the original is by a band called The Lover Speaks. I can't say for sure, but I think Annie's version wins) and her surprisingly faithful rendition of "A Whiter Shade of Pale." A few of the songs are a little baffling (I'm looking at you, "Take Me to the River") but the album is very strong and a thoroughly enjoyable listen.
Baleeted? No Way. Annie Lennox is awesome.
