Revenge is the fifth studio album by the British pop duo Eurythmics, released in 1986.

Following on from their previous album, Be Yourself Tonight, Revenge continued further in this direction as the duo embraced a more commercial "rock band" style. The album included several hit singles and was a commercial success. Its release was followed by an extensive world tour. A 1987 concert from the Australian leg of this tour was also released on home video (see Eurythmics Live).

AllMusic Review by

On their fifth album, Eurythmics moved away from the austere synth-pop of their previous work and toward more of a neo-'60s pop/rock stance. "Missionary Man" (which went Top 40 as a single in the U.S. and charted in the U.K.) featured a prominent harmonica solo, while "Thorn in My Side" had a chiming guitar riff reminiscent of the Searchers and a fat sax solo. Of course, the primary element in the group's sound remained Annie Lennox's distinctive alto voice, which was still impressive even if the material was slightly less so. Revenge was a successful album, reaching the Top Ten in the U.K. and going gold in the U.S.
