TEARS FOR FEARS – Tears Roll Down (Greatest Hits 82-92)

On this DVD / double CD set you get a dozen music videos and two dozen memorable songs by this very talented ‘80s pop group surviving into the early ‘90s. With Roland Orzabal in the lead songwriting seat, they’ve always had a more intelligent and conscientious slant than the bubblegummers of their time, as they flowed through a decade from muted alterna-pop to brightly coloured early ‘90s video territory. Included in this package is the Tears Roll Down (Greatest Hits 82-92) DVD, with videos of Sowing The Seeds Of Love, Everybody Wants To Rule The World, Woman In Chains, Shout, Head Over Heels, Mad World, Pale Shelter, I Believe, Laid So Low (Tears Roll Down), Mothers Talk, Change, and Advice For The Young At Heart. These tracks appear in the exact same order on the first CD. The second disc includes their lesser known songs: memories fade, Start Of The Breakdown, The Hurting, the Marauders, The Working Hour, Standing On The Corner Of The Third World, Johnny Panic & The Bible Of Dreams, Break It Down Again, Elemental, Bloodletting Go, The Body Wah, and a US remix of Shout. It’s a pity they didn’t take their music beyond the ‘90s – and if they did, it was not marketed well enough (!).
Incidentally this is the first DVD I’ve come across with the song lyrics in the sleeve.
