Possibly the kitschiest band of the 1980s (as Joy Division was for the 1970s), Tears for Fears turned out a small treasury of well-crafted songs during their heyday and helped to define a genre that everybody recognises, but nobody can name. "John Hughes movie pop" comes close, but somebody should find something more apt. Tears Fall Down collects all their best and adds a scattering of good album cuts. The original albums will still hold some delights after this, but they won't be required listening. If you want more Tears for Fears, check out their strong, though under-appreciated, later work like 1996's Saturnine Martial & Lunatic. --Gavin McNett

Finally, the USA compilation 'Shout: The Very Best of Tears for Fears' features all these songs, plus additional tracks from 'Elemental' all in chronological order, making it a more complete and attractive collection of singles if budget is not an issue. However, this is still a fine collection and a good introduction to the music of Tears For Fears.
i can understand people putting down most modern music because the people playing and singing it normally didnt write it. these guys wrote their own songs, played their own songs and dared to express emotion when others from older times had done this better lol.
Great to hear some of these songs again, especially Mad World. A lot better than I remember.
Of the second half, only `Laid So Low' merits a full five stars in my opinion, but two more - `Mothers Talk' and `Advice for the Young at Heart' - come very close. Whatever, there are absolutely no duff tracks on this album.
