It's sometimes hard to believe how much "popular music of the times" can change in such a short span. The 80's weren't really that long ago, but it's getting harder and harder to remember a time when potent lyrical content and strong singing ability were not unusual in "popular" music. While the Eurythmics catalog certainly has its fair share of songs that suffered from some monotony (due to lack of dynamic contrast, lack of textural variety, lack of musical development, and/or too much melodic repetition), the integrity they maintained throughout their 8 studio albums is very commendable--especially for what was essentially a pop act. We, Too, Are One allowed Eurythmics to go out on a relatively high note in the UK. Many critics and fans regard it as a "safe" album that doesn't push the boundaries the same way their previous albums did. I, however, don't find it to be much of a departure from their previous albums. I don't consider Eurythmics to have been a particularly boundary-pushing group. In my opinion, they were a group that successfully utilized various musical styles to craft songs that were usually very immediately-pleasing, but that were also not vapid fluff. A WORD OF CAUTION: Upon ordering this album from both Best Buy and another major retailer, I have come to the conclusion that a distributor is supplying stores with a 2013 German import reprinting of this 2005 edition of the album. (The bar code is the same on both printings of this album.) While the 2005 remaster series of the Eurythmics albums features soft, 3-panel digipack album cases and detailed album booklets that provide background information for each album, this German reprinting comes in a standard jewel case with a booklet that seems to feature lower-quality printing than the 2005 edition, a blue border around the "front artwork," and what is probably a bare-bones listing of credits with a few cheap pictures slapped inside. (I can't vouch for the internal contents of this printing, as I returned both of these incorrect items I received to both stores. My guess is that the CD is probably very much official and uses the same 2005 remaster source audio files.) For some buyers, this may be insignificant. For those who are "completionists" looking to keep their packaging consistent from album to album, it would probably be best to look elsewhere and attempt to find one of the 2005 releases floating around.
