Annie Lennox: Songs of Mass Destruction

I have the single Dark Road which is really good and different from mainstream music. I bought the CD last night off of Best Buy and hope to listen to the rest of it when it arrives. Anyone else buying the Album?

I'm listening on Rhapsody -- sounds pretty good. I'm really liking the song Ghosts In My Machine.

I'm not sure if I'll give it a listen or not, but her last album "Bare" was quite good. I really like her voice...always have.

I will definitely check it out, as I love her voice and sound, always have. More solo than with Dave Stewart as the Eurythmics.

I've always loved her songs like Why, Little Bird, Precious, Walking On Broken Glass, No More I Love Yous, the one from the Dracula soundtrack (I forget the name) and her awesome cover of Whiter Shade Of Pale. Never picked up any of her albums.

I haven't heard the CD, I'd like to. But I just read this, how weird

University of Colorado police are looking into an incident at Macky Auditorium on Tuesday night during which a man, dressed in a black cape and wearing a gas mask, approached the stage where British singer Annie Lennox was performing and frightened her into retreating backstage.

CU Police Sgt. Gary Arai said the man, a 32-year-old Denver resident, was escorted out of the building by security around 9:30 p.m. and the concert resumed.

"A fellow who was dressed in a black cape, platform boots and a gas mask approached the stage," Arai said. "Lennox saw him coming and threw down her microphone and went backstage."

He didn't know if charges would or could be filed, given that the man didn't climb up on stage with Lennox.

Arai said the man's name is not being released because he hasn't been arrested.

Lennox, in a Wednesday blog posting on her official Web site, described the incident as "really freakish and disturbing, whatever the hell it was."

She also blasted the lack of security at Macky.

"The security at the hall were extremely lax, and Mr "Nightmare on Elm Street" (or whatever weird thing was going on in his head) should never have been allowed to get anywhere near," the 52-year-old singer wrote.

Arai said two uniformed CU police officers were on duty at Macky and that private security personnel were also working the event.

Lennox, who gained worldwide fame in the 1980s as the singer in the duo Eurythmics, apologized in her blog to fans who were waiting outside to meet her, writing that the incident "really shook me up."

Instead of greeting fans after the show, she boarded her tour bus.

"That's one of the very few times I've ever done that in my career. In fact I don't remember that ever happening before," Lennox wrote. "And believe me ... in the 30 years I've been performing, I'm not that easily shaken."

Lennox is scheduled to play in Minneapolis tonight.
