Ironically titled, considering it was the last Eurythmics album for a decade, 1989's WE TOO ARE ONE is a solid farewell from Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox. Rebounding from 1988's somewhat disappointing SAVAGE, the album is a well-produced collection of strong, diverse songs.
Perhaps too diverse; the contrasting musical paths the pair followed after their breakup can be clearly seen here in retrospect. The stomping "We Two Are One" and the Motownish "(My My) Baby's Gonna Cry," prefigure the more R&B-influenced direction of Dave Stewart's Spiritual Cowboys; while the delicate but substantial art-pop of "When the Day Goes Down" and the lyrically blunt "You Hurt Me and I Hate You" (one of two tracks Lennox wrote without Stewart), foreshadow Lennox's solo albums.
