Tears for Fears were always more ambitious than the average synth pop group. From the beginning, the duo were tackling big subjects. Their debut, 'The Hurting'. Driven by catchy, infectious synth pop, it bacme a big hit in the U.K. setting the stage for international stardom with their second album, 1985's 'Songs From the Big Chair'. On the strength of the singles 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World'and 'Shout' the record became a major hit, establishing the duo as one of the leading acts of the second generation of MTV stars. Instead of quickly recording a follow-up, Tears for Fears labored over their third album, the psychedelic and jazz-rock-tinged The Seeds of Love. While the album was a big hit, it was the end of an era instead of a new beginning. Smith left the group early in the '90s, and Orzabal continued with Tears for Fears, pursuing more sophisticated directions. Both released various solo albums but neither made a much impact. In 2004, Orzabal reunited with Smith for the colorful 'Everybody Loves a Happy Ending', their first collaboration in over a decade. With over two decades of fantastic pop to choose from, there is no shortage of back catalogue rarities, amazing memorabilia and quality collectibles, all available right here in our specialist Tears For Fears collectors store.
