Tears For Fears
Songs From The Big Chair

  (Item #: tearssongs_1811) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • An excellent early British pressing, with Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides - quiet vinyl too
  • Rich, spacious and lively, with an open, extended top end - this is the sound you want from Tears for Fears
  • More great songs than practically anything from the '80s - Shout, Everybody Wants To Rule The World and Head Over Heels, just to name a few
  • "It is not only a commercial triumph, it is an artistic tour de force. And in the loping, percolating "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," Tears for Fears perfectly captured the zeitgeist of the mid-'80s while impossibly managing to also create a dreamy, timeless pop classic. Songs From the Big Chair is one of the finest statements of the decade."

  • "... this quartet date features the two pianos of Oscar Peterson and Count Basie collaborating and interacting on swing standards and blues. Any of their five albums together are worth acquiring."

  • The trick on Hawks and Doves is to find rich, smooth, edge-free sound, and this copy delivers those qualities like nothing you've ever heard, guaranteed
  • "Hawks and Doves has a homey feel. "Little Wing," bare and haltingly lyrical with its miked harp and unaccompanied acoustic, is simpler than anything on the folky Comes a Time, and the rest of the music is defined by Ben Keith's laconic dobro and steel and Rufus Thobodeaux's sawing fiddle."

  • The overall sound here is super clean, clear and open with deep punchy bass and plenty of energy
  • "Reckoning runs through a set of ten jangle pop songs that are different not only in sound but in style from the debut. Where Murmur was enigmatic in its sound, Reckoning is clear, which doesn't necessarily mean that the songs themselves are straightforward. Michael Stipe continues to sing powerful melodies without enunciating, but the band has a propulsive kick that makes the music vital and alive... the songwriting is more direct and memorable than before..." - All Music

  • Hugh Padgham took over engineering duties for Ghost and The Police's next album - the quality of their recordings is much the better for it
  • "This album has more variety than the menu in a Bangkok brothel. In particular, Sting's voice has taken on a new depth and fresh maturity. The opening song, 'Spirits In The Material World', may have what sounds like a dumb title, but the song is a dream of close harmonies and nicely understated drums." Record Mirror

Reworking glam rock themes with avant-garde synth flourishes, and reversing the process as well, Bowie creates dense but accessible music throughout Scary Monsters."
