EDITORS’ NOTES

Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal’s MTV-era breakthrough is a tour de force of New Wave's possibilities. They tip toward prog on the surging "Broken" and indulge in piano-led balladry on the spare "I Believe." The album is also a vehicle for some of the '80s' most inspired singles: On "Shout," with its indelible hook and vivid digital production, and the open-road anthem "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," they put their big-tent aspirations front and center, while the majestic "Head Over Heels / Broken" confirms their place atop the arena-pop throne.

One of the 80's most important works

"everybody", "shout", and "head over heals" are simply 3 of the best pop songs ever. Add the fabulous "working hour", "broken", and "I believe", and you have one of the 10 best albums of the 80's. Should have been a grammy nominee- but Springsteen, prince, lionel richie, Cindy lauper, and Tina turner. Still should've won a Grammy for this work.

Totally outrageous duo

I love Tears for Fears. The song I hear the most "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" is my very favorite, heard it all the time when I was growing up. "Shout" and "Head over Heels" are very good ones too. I even found the album on record too.
