Sean’s Music Pick: Tears For Fears
There are some (many?) out there who might only think of Tears For Fears as a one-
album wonder. Songs from the Big Chair was rightfully a smash, with three
massive hits. But the boys at Political Beats are here to tell you why it’s well worth while
to dig into the rest of their discography. Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith made great
music both before and after the massive chart success. And, in fact, why one album from
the 1990s and one from the 2000s deserve space in the conversation about the band’s
best work. You could say there will be a lot of hurting, as we’ve been laid so low and
broken down again in our attempts to fully appreciate Tears For Fears’s work. Come
along, shout the lyrics if you know them, and leave yourself open to the possibility that
you’ll fall head over heels for some previously unheard music.
