Letting It Out
Michael Kerner | Brooklyn, New York U.S.A. | 10/20/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"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.

One of the best greatest hits collections out there
Michael Kerner | 01/16/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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!"
