Tears For Fears' iconic album Songs From The Big Chair, which spawned classic hits like "Everybody Wants To Rule The World", "Mother's Talk", "Shout" and "Head Over Heels", is available for the first time as a picture disc.
The group's phenomenal second album marked a transition in the band's sound and catapulted them into international prominence. It remains the band's biggest-selling album.
The album also heralded a dramatic maturation in the band's music, away from the synth-pop brand with which it was (unjustly) seared following the debut, and towards a complex, enveloping pop sophistication. The songwriting of Orzabal, Smith, and keyboardist Ian Stanley took a huge leap forward, drawing on reserves of palpable emotion and lovely, protracted melodies that draw just as much on soul and R&B music as they do on immediate pop hooks...It is not only a commercial triumph, it is an artistic tour de force...Songs from the Big Chair is one of the finest statements of the decade.
