Album Review

Like many other installments in the Classic collection, the Tears for Fears edition is woefully unrepresentative, skipping past 1983's The Hurting ("Mad World," "Change," and "Pale Shelter" being obvious picks from that) and plays fast and loose with the rest of the duo's catalog. This set does have several of their biggest hits, including "Shout," "Break It Down Again," "Head Over Heels," "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," and "Woman in Chains," but there are several other collections that provide a more caring look at their back catalog. They deserve much better than this budget release. And so do you.
