What The World needs Now . . .,

This review is from: Everybody Loves a Happy Ending (Audio CD)
One word - WOW! 'Tears for Fears' release their first album as a duo proper for about 15 years, and it is an absolute winner. This album is dripping in 60's references, without the pretensions and over experimentation that did somewhat bring down 'The Seeds of Love' . . Beatles, Byrds, Beach Boys - it's all there, not just in style, but in the credible songwriting as well. The songs are once again the core here, and there are many a hit single on this long player if the marketing 'gurus' get off their chuffs and do their jobs. 'Closest Thing to Heaven' is the hit single that should be used to launch this long player in the UK; Standout tracks? Try all 12 on or size - from the beautiful 'Size of Sorrow' and 'Last Day', the haunting 'Tangerine', The Beatles drenched 'Who You Are', and my favourite - 'Secret World'. Do yourself and your friends a favour - spread the message - this little treasure needs to be found.
