Customer Reviews

I grew up with all the bands, songs and music of the 80's.
WhiteHawk
The closing song on that album "Goodnight Song" is also the closing track on this collection and with good merits.
Distant Voyageur
One of my all time favorite bands with all their best on one album.

Although this CD was released in 2001, it is simply a recycled "Tears Roll Down: Greatest Hits '82-'92 from 1992, with new packaging and added tracks.

All content on this CD exists in remastered form on the individual, content-expanded UK-import TFF CD's, also released in 2001:

The Hurting
Songs From The Big Chair
Seeds Of Love

This CD is a great collection of songs, but from an audio standpoint, the difference is not subtle: The remasters sound like a heavy cloth removed from the speakers, compared to the older masters on this CD.

Universal obviously wanted to pilot-fish the momentum off the import remastered releases by tossing this re-packaged, older-mastered package into the market at the same time: By releasing this set in the same calendar year as the remasters, a lot of buyers might be fooled into thinking they were getting the newly-remastered content.

This seems to be a disturbing trend on the part of Universal: Re-packaging pre-existing, sonically inferior, greatest hits CD's with new artwork and a few added tracks.

MAY 2013 UPDATE: There seems to be at least one "comments" nincompoop who just couldn't seem to grasp my review, although by the voting above, it seems the vast majority of readers were far more discerning (I certainly thought it was succinct, but you can't please everyone).

Format: Audio CD
In the 1980's, there were just so many different amazing groups that really did deliver to what pop music should really have, feeling. Yet, today, I honestly don't even come close to seeing that with acts like Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, and Ciara to name a few. When it ame to acts that put the boldness into the music, Tears For Fears really did bring it out plenty of times. Back in 1992, the British pop group had a highly successful hits package, Tears Roll Down, in what made them a gre group. Unfortunately, awhile ago, the record was no longer issued to the public, and a substitute was conjured.

Shout: The Very Best Of Tears For Fears, replaces the Tears Roll Down package for longtime fans of the 80's group, but nevertheless, it also does deliver. The compilation seems more like a extended version of Tears Roll Down, and it does deliver as well. The compilation includes all of their big hits like the peppy 80's hit Everybody Wants To Rule The World, Shout, and the epic pop ballad Sowing The Seeds Of Love. The collection also does add a little bit more, with tracks like the overshadowed Break It Down Again, which was during the post Curt Smith era record Elemental. The album is fairly compiled, but could've been remastered a bit better.

All in all, for anybody who hasn't heard these great pop gems and guilty pleasures, Tears For Fears had a whole lot to say for advice for the young at heart. Shout: The Very Best Of Tears For Fears is a great compilation for anybody who doesn't own a Tears For Fears record. That is something to shout about.

Tears For Fears were definitely one of the best bands of the 80's decade. This album has all the hits (yes, most of all these songs were hits) in America and the UK. The sound is superior. The liner notes say that the songs were 96k/24 bit mastered. This brings out the highlights in the layering of the instruments and vocals. It also includes the hard to find US remix of "Mother's Talk", which I've been looking for quite some time.
Maybe a couple songs could be considered "filler", but even these songs bring a diverse sound to this collection. This is a band that should be given more credit than they usually get!

As with other reviewers I noticed the audio not being as crisp as one would expect for a supposed remastered edition but I was very pleased with the track list. I owned the previous "best of" collection, "Tears Roll Down," and I felt that my favorite TFF album "The Hurting" was neglected on that release. This album includes all of the popular US singles from "The Hurting"-"Mad World," "Change," and "Pale Shelter." It also includes the song "Suffer the Children" and the single "The Way You Are" which was released in between "The Hurting" and "Songs from the Big Chair." It also includes another one of my favorites, "Break It Down Again," from the album "Elemental." All of the classics are here, and a few extras. I feel like I got my money's worth.

Format: Audio CD
Tears For Fears is the duo who crafted intelligent, tuneful pop songs back in the 1980's, riding the "new wave" sound of that era. The duo parted ways in the early 90's, and this is the first hits album to include Roland Orzabal's post breakup material recorded under the TFF name. Curt Smith has the more impressive voice, but Orzabal is also a solid vocalist, with his solo hit Break It Down Again a memorable track. This album fails to include anything from the 2nd Orzabal TFF solo album Raoul and The Kings of Spain, which had a few memorable tracks but was a commercial and chart flop. If you like Tears For Fears you might also want to get the last album and Elemental in addition to the hits collection.
