5.0 out of 5 stars What a cracking collection!, 1 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Tears Roll Down [Greatest Hits 82-92] (Audio CD)
I first remember hearing Head Over Heels and Everyone Wants to Rule the World back in the mid-Eighties when first released, and they still sound as good as ever. Blending a distinct sound of keyboard and guitar, with thought-provoking, and at times, powerful lyrics, Tears For Fears really did produce a fine collection of songs on three great albums. Their sound was different, and at times, their songs moving. But the melodies, and Smith's soft, but at the same time, powerful voice, made their songs. This "best of" collection is brilliant, with a collection of songs I will never tire of. This is a collection of 12 fantastic songs which will have you hooked. Combining a number of powerful anthems such as Shout, to the more gentle, sensitive songs of I Believe, the album just roles from one great song to another. Eighties' classics such as Everybody Wants To Rule The World and Shout are really amazing tracks, catchy and yet thought-provoking. But the lesser known song titles and tracks don't disappoint - they are just as good. My favourite has to be Head Over Heels, with it's romantic lyrics and slow, dream-like music. With an amazing keyboard and guitar intro, it still sound's excellent even though I've listened to it loads! In fact, Change, Pale Shelter...they all have great intros! Each with a different sound and substance, but each introducing cool songs. But all the songs, with maybe the exception of Mother's Talk, are cracking! Despite having most of these tracks on 7", much to my annoyance, some are quite scratched now! I've had to get the CD so i can just sit back and listen to one after another and not let the crackles spoil some really excellent songs! A truly great band from the 80's, with a truly classic selection of songs on an album! Buy it - you won't be disappointed.
