5.0 out of 5 stars SOLID COLLECTION SPANNING A DECADE
This is a solid collection of Tears For Fears from 1982-1992, and basically includes all the singles released from that era. The chronological order of the songs is somewhat odd since it keeps jumping from tracks from the 'Sowing the Seeds of Love' album to 'Songs from the Big Chair' and 'The Hurting'. There is also a non-album track, 'Laid So Low', which was released as...

3.0 out of 5 stars Donnie Darko fans beware!
If you liked 'Mad World' at the end of Donnie Darko, get the soundtrack. This original version is vvvvvvvery dated.
If, on the other hand, you are a Tears for Fears fan, why don't you just get the complete albums? You know best ofs are like McDonalds; the do taste nice but you find that half an hour later - damn, you need more!
So what I say to you is: eat...

"Everybody wants to rule the world" has always been my favourite record, so decided to buy this album. I remember when it won Record of the Year. Why I had never brought this album before I do not know! Brilliant album, brings back lots of very happy memories

4.0 out of 5 stars Tears For Fears rocked in a surreal kind of way, 10 Jan 2002
This review is from: Tears Roll Down [Greatest Hits 82-92] (Audio CD)
This 1992 compilation was released shortly before Roland Olazabel's first TFF album release without long-time partner Curt Smith onboard (ie, the 'Elemental' album). It covers the first three Olazabel-Smith albums between 1983 and 1989, namely The Hurting, Songs From The Big Chair and The Seeds of Love.
For the general listener this adequately covers this body of work, however, twelve tracks is a little mean and they are not even listed chronologically, thus listeners can't really hear the long-term development of the TFF sound with any real meaning. Perhaps their best ever track, the gorgeous fluidic pop of The Hurting (the title track of their first album) is inexplicably missing. This was a 'lost' hit single that never materialised from the album, but was certainly one of their cornerstone pieces. However, a worthy and poppy reworking of the Tears Roll Down cut, especially made for the compilation (which was originally a bonus track on latter copies of The Seeds Of Love) represents the last time Olazabel and Smith worked together as a unit before splitting acrimoniously in 1990.
Nevertheless, gripes apart, this is a decent enough compilation which will introduce the first time TFF listener to the all their 1980's singles and a couple of album tracks thrown in, most of which are truly great and memorable songs. A decade on from this (and to celebrate 20 years since the release of Mad World in 1982),one hopes that this will eventually be replaced by a more contemporary compilation covering TFF's 1980's and 1990's releases, to include great songs such as Break It Down Again, Raul & The Kings of Spain plus material from their excellent Saturnine Martial & Lunatic album.
