Two discs and 35 tracks. Hey! I have always been a fan of these guys from the very first single, and this collection allows the listener to revisit their work from the start in 1982 to 1993.

I gave up listening to chart music around 1990, finally seeing it for what it is, merely a money-making exercise. But tears for Fears, Like Sting and a few others, are one of those musical gifts from the 1980s that continue to merit attention. Two of the major attractions of this group are the strength of the songwriting and the imaginative arrangements of the songs. Both are plainly in evidence here, for we have supremely well-crafted songs from the get-go. Many of them last more than six minutes (even some of the conventional rockers), thus giving plenty of scope for development and providing fresh nuances every time you hear them.

As well as thoughtful lyrics, there are strong production values too. And although much of the instrumentation is electronic imitation rather than the genuine article (but if the effect is the same, who cares), the choice of sound is both interesting and perfect. It seems they plainly worked hard and simply refused to be bland. In the short sleeve-note essay, Daryl Easlea quotes Orzabal as saying, "I believe to create you have to destroy. It's painful and difficult ..."

Orzabal has an incredible voice (check out the title track) and sings with amazing conviction.

I bought this album thinking it was a greatest hits, but now realise THE COLLECTION can mean anything, This double cd album was a big let down, there are so many album fillers, its hard to keep track which songs are great and which songs are experiments by the group, most of the songs are actual 90's a decade when nothing was being heard by the tears for fears this is why this album failed for me, the atrocities that are PHAROAHS, THE BIG CHAIR, DEJA VU, GHOST PAPA and many more are an attempt to make this into a double cd, seriously im doing this for all those people who loved there mid 80's tracks, go buy a greatest hits or something, this is a big big let down, and bands should be banned from conning the public this way, stay true to there fans, and sort it out---all you tears fears die hard fans will disagree, thats alright.

4.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER COMPILATION! 26 Sept. 2007
By Boy from the 80's - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
and yet, another compilation form the quintessential british band tears for fears. i still rate this album four stars for its content. but for someone like me who has bought the "better" compilation earlier, this is nothing but an excess for a true TFF fan.

buy it: if you have no TFF collection yet. this would serve as your ultimate collection as of date.

avoid it: if you have already collected previous releases such as the digitally remastered first three albums (the hurting, songs from the big chair, sowing the seeds of love), their first b-sides collection (saturnine, martial and lunatic), roland's solo album (elemental; under the name of TFF), curt's solo (soul on board), and the recently released "songs from the big chair - deluxe edition" for additional rariies and 12" remixes!

clearly, you already have all the tracks for this latest compilation (with the exemption of "ghost papa") with the hit "pale shelter" missing. all i mentioned above were "digitially remastered," thus, assuring the customer of clear sonic sound.

i guess my favorite band has been spreading themselves too thin lately, releasing compilation year after year since 2002's japan-only compilation "the best remixes."

i still recommend it, if only for the content, and because it's still true TFF fashion. but if you already have all, no need to buy this.

on dvd, i also recommend "scenes from the big chair."

TFF will always be one of the best bands to come out in the 80's. i am glad they are still here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss the only chance you can get the two rare tracks!! 26 May 2008
By Zhu Ming - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a compilation for die-hard TFF fans only and not for beginners. I'll give it a 5, 10 whatever stars for the two rare tracks that you can only find here: "Ghost Papa" and "We Are Broken" (besides that you're confident to find their reissue singles as Women in Chains and Pale Shelter)

If you're looking for a "greatest single hits" box, this might not serve your needs. But if you've got everything (albums, remixes, b-sides...) This IS the missing piece for your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars TFF Hits & Rare Tracks 28 Jun. 2007
By David D. McFarland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I give it 4 stars because it contains more "B" sides then hits, I would recommend the "Gold" album first & this one second. For some odd reason they left off "Pale shelter". They might have been wise to put that one on either in its original 7" format (which is far different then any album version) or deleted a few "B" sides & added a few more great album tracks. Nevertheless, it is a nice package & could have used a third disc & liner notes with more information on ALL the tracks. Search "Judemac Forever" on msn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good 22 May 2016
By Bonnie Trojan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This particular compilation is probably the best one available for Tears For Fears. There's another one with a different title that has the same exact tracks just in a different order. The set titled Gold is also good but not as lengthy.
