Everybody Loves a Consistently Great Band......Putting Out Quality Work......
on March 10, 2017
All throughout their long musical career, Tears For Fears have consistently put out a high quality body of work and, "Everybody Loves a Happy Ending" is no exception. For this 2004 release, Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith reunited after having last worked together on 1989's "The Seeds of Love".
Well, every Tears For Fears fan should take note, because there isn't one bad song in this collection, in fact they're all exceedingly well-crafted and high quality songs with masterful musicianship. Yes, there is a noticeable Beatles sound, but I tend to think these comparisons sometimes are overblown and the band has its own unique "brand and style".
As I said, all 12 tracks are absolutely great, but I still have my favorites here: "Last Days On Earth", "Closest Thing to Heaven", "Who Killed Tangerine?", "The Devil", "Killing With Kindness", "Secret World", "Ladybird", "Quiet Ones", etc. Too bad, the 2 bonus tracks available on the import were not included here: "Pulling a Cloud" and "Out of Control". This album is sheer perfection, with influences from the 60's, the 70's and the heyday of the 80's too. (BTW: I'm glad my CD only cost me $12.00 when I originally purchased it some twelve years ago, since it's now retailing for $40.00 plus.)
Love and Peace,
