5.0 out of 5 stars Memories fade................., 11 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Hurting (Audio CD)
It's ironic that my favourite track on this superb album when I bought it on vinyl in 1983 was (and still is) Memories Fade - ironic because listening to it again after all this time evokes such strong memories of my mid-teenage years. And surely the best of these was of going to see my first 'real' gig (accompanied by my first 'real' girlfriend!) in Margate in December 1983. And the band we saw? Tears For Fears - who played the whole album tracklist and more - the experience just blew me away! Fantastic! There isn't a weak song on this album - it's very catchy, very 'poppy' - but each track carries a deeper, thought-provoking lyric, and it's this just as much as the music that originally kept me listening and interested when other records of that era just got lost in my collection. Tears For Fears were the first band I'd heard that managed to combine a real intelligence with strong, catchy rhythms and melodies. Quite an achievement for a debut album. Although I still have the original on vinyl, I no longer have a turntable on which to play it, so I'm really pleased to have found it on CD - and the extra tracks are a real bonus. And what became of the girlfriend? We split up a few weeks after the gig! Ahhh! ;o)
