Biography

Who'd have believed it? With its deliberate storybook-inspired title, Everybody Loves A Happy Ending signals a welcome return for Tears For Fears - one of the biggest and best-loved bands of the post-MTV age-and one of the most unexpected reunions in pop music history.

"This is the album that should have followed Seeds Of Love in many ways," says singer-songwriter Roland ... Read more in Amazon's Tears For Fears Store

The return of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith as Tears for Fears is in my opinion one of the musical highlights of the last decade. Their comeback album 'Everybody Loves a Happy Ending' is a truly exceptional release. It will always remain a mystery to me, why this album did not receive the promotion it deserved as it would have rocketed this duo back into super stardom status. However, the release of 'Secret World' is indeed very pleasing and proves the band is equally as good on the live stage. The sweeping song 'Secret World' would sound absolutely excellent on the UK airwaves if released as a single. Roll on the next release from Tears for Fears.

A return to form. Good old Tears for Fears! I saw them live in London in May 2005 and they were truly outstanding. It's a pity the UK doesn't seem to appreciate true musicians like these. They opened with Secret World - a real stomper with such an incredible chorus, you can't help but sing out loud with them. Great song on the lines of Sowing the Seeds of Love. Welcome back!

I enjoyed Tears for Fears in the 80's, and passed the enthusiasm onto my daughter who grew up with them, although we ignored them after the split following The Seeds Of Love. But when they reformed a few years ago and released Everybody Loves A Happy Ending, we were really pleased to hear it as a return to form, with all the same features present and correct: strong melodies, great arrangements and unforgettable hooks. To be able to see them play these fantastic new songs (and their classics) live on their UK tour after such a long time was a dream come true, and this set provides a nice souvenir of that show.

All of their best tracks are featured and, although there's only five of them in the band onstage, they seem to have no difficulty in producing the wide-screen sound of the album - or, indeed "Seeds of Love", whose title track features a production thats almost Spectoresque in its scope (if I hadn't heard them do it live, I'd've suspected that some extensive post-production had been invoked). It all sounds good, so it's a shame to hear Curt Smith's pitch wavering somewhat in places (I remember this happening in concert as well, particularly on his nice solo number "Snow Hill"), which jars oddly with the sumptuous backing.

The additional DVD is a nice touch, offering more or less the same set as the CD, and it too has been put together really well: more than just a concert video, it uses a variety of special effects and processing to produce a film that it's possible to watch more than once (unlike many videos of this kind) without feeling that emotion that familiarity often breeds.

Without doubt, the title track should have been released as a single in the UK, wonderful swooping stringed accompanyment to mccartneyesque lyrics, add on bacahrac & ELO and You have a beautiful song which, once heard is impossible to remove from your mind. Excellent Tears for Fears - more please !

I love Tears For Fears, they are my favorite group ever since 1982. I saw this concert at the NIA in Birmingham and i wish this dvd was from there but in a stadium it's not the same. Their first live dvd was fantastic but this don't bother you will be dissapointed.I still think Tears For Fears are the best band in the world, but save your money.

I received this the other day but feel a little disappointed. The DVD aspect is obviously a concert the guys did in 2005. It's incomplete, I would say - only 8 or so songs, and the sound quality is just poor. Playing it through my TV the vocals are hard to pick out - don;t know whether this was the way the show was recorded or whether its my DVD player, but I reckon its the former. The CD I played in the car, and it is the same concert but with more songs and a better sound quality. Its also finished off with 3 or 4 great TFF songs from the studio. A great band - but this whole package left me feeling that it is 'half-cocked'
