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

This is a solid collection of Tears For Fears from 1982-1992, and basically includes all the singles released from that era. The chronological order of the songs is somewhat odd since it keeps jumping from tracks from the 'Sowing the Seeds of Love' album to 'Songs from the Big Chair' and 'The Hurting'. There is also a non-album track, 'Laid So Low', which was released as a single after the 'Sowing the Seeds of Love' album and before the 'Elemental' album.
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 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.

'Kitsch' is a german word and it is condescending - now there is a suprise. i'm assuming that this is kitsch because it shows emotion like joy division showed emotion and this, and the new romantics don't live up to the earlier romantic movement? isn't all modern music kitsch? isn't there always some superior artist from earlier times who had it worse and had better reason to be emotional? sorry i didn't have a few grand to blow on an art degree. joy division is kitsch, but nivarna are just fine and dandy because curt coban had more reason to kill himself than the bloke from joy division? 80s music has always been looked down on, especially synth pop and especially by americans and ageing rock fans who take offence that someone might play an instrument other than the guitar. i think people who use words like 'kitsch' are closet social-darwinists.

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.

one of the most imaginative and seminal bands of the 80's,tears for fears created many near perfect electro pop records that have stood the test of time,its not often a duo who play fantastic music also has two outstanding vocalists aswell.its just a damn shame that it took gary jules's pretentious,awful cover of mad world to make people remember them.apart from depeche mode,pet shop boys and erasure tears for fears were the best of that scene.buy this now!

Tears for fears were initially connected with the new wave synthesizer bands of the early 1980s but later branched out into mainstream rock and pop, which led to international chart success. What you have here then is an excellent collection of their songs, which gives a good introduction, and over view, to their work. If you are a newbie to Tears for Fears this album is good place to start.

Had a little 80s renaissance recently. No idea why, just went very retro for my teenage years. Purchased a number of CDs, including this one!
Great to hear some of these songs again, especially Mad World. A lot better than I remember.

Some good songs on this album, although I never thought I would consider 80's songs nostalgic, only because I can go back further to the 60's and late 50's,I realized that these songs are now 30 years old, and they brought back some good memories. Enjoyed.

With so many five-star songs, this twelve-track greatest hits package is in danger of being too much of a good thing. The first six of the twelve tracks are worthy of the highest praise in pop/rock songwriting and performance, and three appear here in their full six-minute lengths. The guitar solo in `Shout' has an unremastered edge, but the imaginative arrangements and brilliant production never makes them banal.

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.
