Their music is mellow. The sounds are pretty. They don't go too hard, but aren't so soft to be labeled Easy Listening. With just a touch of new wave, Britain has its own version of Steely Dan. The album, Everybody Loves A Happy Ending, solidifies my analogy. The Songs of the Album, while sometimes containing dark subject matter shows sunny melodies, pop sensibilities, and just a touch of the classic Psychadelia that peppered the much loved "Seeds of Love" release. I think this is a very consistant album, considering their last record came out in 1995, with just Roland Oarzbal as Tears For Fears. Since then Curt Smith has returned and the band has luckily has not lost a beat. The Record is 12 songs deep with amazing songcraft, and interesting sound, somewhere in the realm of indie rock, jazz rock and even blue eyed soul. The boys don't seem to have missed a step and it looks like they can say they've made a strong comeback, if people are good enough to get out there and get the tracks heard. It sounds a lot like whats played on modern rock radio, so we'll continue to hope the music industry has a soul and get this disc promoted (Note: When L.A. Reid got ousted from American label, Arista, with which T4F signed, they lost their contract and this CD was lost on the shelves, destined to become an archives mystery. Thankfully, Universal's Hip-O Records saved it. We'll just hope Clive Davis rectifies the situation, because he is a genius with great business sense.) Anyways, in short this Album deserves an amazing following, and success to the band, simply because it is perfect. In sound, substance, style and artistry. Tears For Fears, is amazing!! Welcome Back, we needed you.
