4.0 out of 5 stars Mayfield Revisited, November 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mayfield (Audio CD)
The entire album is a huge bonus for fans who have longed for this re-release. Each song just "sounds" really smooth...it's a great treasure for those who have never heard Curt Smith's voice sans the exciting Tears for Fears brilliant elements. It's a very calming album...something you can appreciate on road trips and when you want time alone. Each song seems to contain a rich situational history and is thought provoking. It should be the soundtrack to a movie...perfect background for complex times in a simple place. The additional track "Trees" featuring Janice Whaley is one you'll have on repeat for sure. One thing people must understand is this is NOT Tears for Fears... it is a drastic contrast to the group's sound. Again, a great treasure for those who like to collect solo albums from the artists of "that band." I've got several of Curt's solo projects as I do Roland's (the other half of TFF) 1 and they're both incredible! As much as I didn't at first understand their time apart for many years I came to appreciate the solo works they released and cherish them greatly as they allow one to be fully immersed in their individual talent. You come to appreciate TFF even more because you can clearly see where each outstanding contribution is coming from. This album is a must... another huge addition to their "entire" series of magnificent work. (why not 5 stars?... Sun King is tremendous and beautiful but bittersweet. I almost wish it had been left off the re-release... still, how could one possibly exclude it due to the delicate, yet haunting lyrics that linger days on end...) I'll say this and leave it; There's nothing B-rate about this album. Curt Smith is a phenomenal artist with a 5-star personality who deserves endless awards for his modern approach to music as well as the final product he delivers. This album is GOLD!
