REVIEWS
Average points: 4.94 (Reviews: 17)
*****
Das beste TFF-Album.
****
Absolut!
Gleich 5 Singleauskopplungen, (darunter den Hit des Jahres) wobei aber nur die beiden Leadsingles (Shout, Everybody..) und Head over heels zu überzeugen wissen.
Mir zu innovativ...

Sehr gut.

Sehr Gutes Album!

Highlights sind fast alle Songs, doch die Singles sind die grössten Highlights!

Tolle Übergänge von Titel 5 über 6 und 7 :-)

Und Track Nummer 8, ist dann einfach nur noch schlicht WELTKLASSE, total träumerisch!

Very good!
******
erneut ganz großer Sport
*****
3 grosse Hits drauf ("Shout", "Everybody Wants To Rule
The World", "Head Over Heals"), dazu noch der wunder-
schöne Schlusssong ("Listen").....

....ob's wirklich besser ist als "The Hurting" würde ich mal
offenlassen, aber alles in allem sicherlich ein gelungenes
Album.

Muy bueno.
*****
ein gutes album

jedoch kommt es niemals an die brillianz des ersten albums ran

denn hier ist der fokus eher auf den kommerz als auf die kunst gelegt

aber welthits wie SHOUT , EVERYBODY WANTS TO:
und HEAD OVER HEELS sind heute noch unvergessen

der grosse us durchbruch 5xPLATIN

Solides Album mit zahlreichen B-Seiten und Experimenten, aber auch einigen Tiefpunkten wie "Empire building" oder "When in a love with a blind man".
*****
zeer sterk 2e album van Tears for Fears uit 1985
*****
Fast so gut, wie das erste Album. Wirkt insgesamt leicht jazzig und ziemlich ruhig (außer "Shout" und "Mothers Talk"), ohne dabei langweilig zu sein. Wohl das letzte richtig starke Album der Band. Danach ging's bergab.

Highlights: Shout/Mothers Talk/The Working Hour
*****
5 stars
*****
Viele starke kultige Songs zeichnen dieses Album aus,auch die sehr wenigen unbekannten,der Ursprungsfassung sind völlig akzeptabel.Dennoch bleibe ich bei 5 Sterne.Obwohl dieses Album mittlerweile eine gebührende Wiederveröffentlichung erfahren durfte,mit zig Bonusmaterial:
Ich bin jetzt kein Hardcore Fan,mir reicht die gewöhnliche Edition von 9 Tracks vollkommen aus.Ich habe mal über Spotify in den Bonuscontent reingehört und muss sagen:Enttäuschend auf ganzer Linie.Diese Songs waren wahrhaftig nur B-Seiten oder blieben gleich ganz und gar unveröffentlicht.Im Vergleich zum Original-Album sehr enttäuschend und der Ursprungsfassung in keinster Weise ebenwürdig.
****
Bis auf die großen Single-Hits haben wir hiermit ein eher mittelmäßiges 80er-Album von der Stange. Ich kann damit leben und es ist durchaus solide, aber wirklich toll ist das nicht.
