Half-Speed Vinyl Masters Cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road!

Analog Planet Rated 9/10 Music, 8/10 Sound!

Tears For Fears' debut album The Hurting was released on March 7, 1983 and peaked at #1 on the U.K. albums chart in its second week of release. It reached platinum status in January 1985 and contains three Top 5 U.K. singles – "Mad World," "Change," and "Pale Shelter."

This LP has been mastered at Abbey Road Studios and cut at half-speed for superior quality.

If you love Tears For Fears and the career groundwork they laid with The Hurting, you'll probably want to get a copy of this new Abbey Road half-speed mastered 180g 1LP edition as soon as you can to see why this band still matters in today's ever-changing musical landscape.
