Editorial Reviews

Originally released in 1983, the debut album from Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, otherwise known as Tears For Fears, instantly blasted off one of the most stellar careers of the 1980s. Immaculately produced, stunningly sequenced and comprised of a sequence of timeless electronic pop classics, The Hurting sympathetically explored themes of childhood angst, adolescent heartache and the struggles of the transition from boy to man. It also gave birth to four of the era s essential singles Suffer The Children , Pale Shelter , Change and the landmark megahit Mad World .

Compiled with the full involvement of Roland and Curt, The Hurting 30th Anniversary Edition brings together the original album remastered at Abbey Road studios, plus all of the relevant B-sides, edits and remixes from the period, many of them available for the first time.
