Review: Tears For Fears - Everybody Loves a Happy Ending

Tears for Fears formed in the early 1980s by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. After their number one albums The Hurting, Songs from the Big Chair and The Seeds of Love, Smith and Orzabal broke up, while Orzabal used their name in the 1990s. Gladly they reformed in 2004 and released Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, an album you should listen to!

The opening track Everybody Loves a Happy Ending shows what to expect from the album. Several melodies and tempo changes, held together by a stunning arrangement and big production.

Call Me Mellow and Size Of Sorrow is powerpop all over. Hard to get this out of you head after you listened to it.

The Last Days On Earth closes the album. It has a great keyboard and lovely lyrics. It makes me want more! Now!
