4.0 out of 5 stars From The Hurting To Elemental..with the odd b-side.
There have been more than a dozen Tears For Fears collections released since they burst on to the world music scene with their now classic debut album "The Hurting".This collection is a great place for the budget minded familiar with all those big hits TFF had through the 80's.

There have been more than a dozen Tears For Fears collections released since they burst on to the world music scene with their now classic debut album "The Hurting".This collection is a great place for the budget minded familiar with all those big hits TFF had through the 80's.
Mad World:The Collection covers the bands career from the debut album up to the fourth album,"Elemental",released in 1993 which is pretty much a Roland Orzabal solo album.There's even a nice selection of some of their b-sides which may not be to everyone's liking but give you an idea of just how alternative these guys were before they hit the mainstream.For fans there's a few tracks from the later 1992-93 recordings that have been hard to find as most would've originally appeared as vinyl b-sides or extra tracks on cd singles.Nice to have some rare tracks and the mastering is pretty good too.
So while it's not exactly a greatest hits collection all the big ones are here in their full length album versions for the most part.For the price of admission,even the most casual of fans would be Head Over Heels!

4.0 out of 5 stars Where's Pale Shelter???, 3 Oct 2013
This review is from: Mad World: The Collection (Audio CD)
This collection is cool, but so disappointed that Pale Shelter isn't on this album. How come? It's one of their best singles.... simply mystifying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic and Young at heart, 4 Oct 2012

"Tears for fears" are a music group that will never grow old. In the '80s their singles "Shout", "Sowing the seeds of love" and "Change" were smash hits and always a part of the programm in the disco's of the time. They still have the respect of their audience in Greece through the Radio Stations.

Received this item and all seemed ok, but the first track (the main reason I purchased the CD), jumps all over the place! Gutted :(
