Muze PNote British duo Tears for Fears debuted in the age of New Romantic synth-pop, and while their early output did share some superficial elements with the likes of Simple Minds, OMD, et al, they were always master craftsmen first and foremost, in terms of both songwriting and production. SHOUT: THE VERY BEST OF TEARS FOR FEARS kicks off with such early hits as "Pale Shelter," "Change," and "Mad World," which array the requisite early-1980s layers of synthesizers in such an artful way that one would be forgiven for regarding TFF as the Beach Boys of electro-pop.
Muze PNote It didn't take long for Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal to transcend the genre, though, and elegant melodic pop gems "Head Over Heels" and "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" are lush, timeless classics more akin to the contemporaneous works of, say, Prefab Sprout. Unsurprisingly, Tears for Fears survived well beyond the Reagan/Thatcher years, turning their attentions to ornate, decidedly Beatlesque efforts, their "comeback" hit, "Sowing the Seeds of Love," exemplifying the shift. Those who assumed the pair had all the longevity and stylistic range of Blancmange will be pleasantly surprised at the bounty on offer here.

Engineer: Ross Cullum

Artist Overview

Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith's debut album as Tears For Fears appeared smack dab in the middle of the '80s UK synth-pop invasion, but it was no mere pop trifle. THE HURTING is full of sophisticated production and accomplished songwriting, using the electronic tools of the day in the service of highly evocative, emotive songs. While it was successful, the follow-up SONGS FROM THE BIG CHAIR made the duo international stars and turned out one hit single after another. Despite another hit in '89 with "Sowing the Seeds of Love," the band's fanbase quieted down as the years passed, but a cover of the melancholy "Mad World," featured prominently in 2001 film DONNIE DARKO showed that the world had not forgotten.
