Format: Audio CD
A classic pop swan-song to the 1980's, this masterful and well-crafted piece of pop genius still resonates with me today. The music of the 80's is constantly trashed by today's musical "know-it-all's" as being too bland, faceless, and overly-produced. It's all a joke to them. My argument would be simply be, what is wrong with listening to music that has multiple layers and multiple production values? The Beach Boys did it with "Pet Sounds" in 1966, and the greatest albums from the Fab Four were all production milestones.
The 1980's were filled with great music, and many of the best groups from England were able to produce that smoky, languid, shimmering, late-at-night sounding British pop that still sounds fresh to me today. Check out Thomas Dolby's "The Flat Earth," the Blue Nile's "Walk Across Rooftops" and "Hats," Nick Heyward's "I Love You Avenue," Prefab Sprout's "Two Wheels Good," and countless others by artists such as Alphaville, Deacon Blue, and others.
"Seeds of Love" is THE definitive masterpiece of the 1980's, a devastatingly beautiful album of pop gems that was a fabulous goodbye to the decade. Every song on the CD is almost like a mini-suite in itself; there is not one even remotely unsure moment on this one, but the highlights would have to be the achingly beautiful "Swords And Knives" and the astonishing "Advice For the Young At Heart." Listen to this album on a beautiful morning with your windows down, or late at night with the moon as your only source of shadows....I predict that you will fall in love with it over and over as I have.

Good, solid, clean remaster of this TFF album from August 1989.
They re-issued 10 years later in '99 and this is what arrived in
my mailbox today. Cost....less than $9.00! Not the best album of
all time.....but it's enjoyable. Their "hits package" and the first
disc..."The Hurting" are in my stable as is "Songs From the Big Chair"....
I'm covered! Seller "BonnieScotland offered the best deal on this.....

As impressive as the singles from this albumn are, I think the tracks that were'nt release as singles are even more impressive. Produced with a budget of over a million pounds ( 2 million dollars ), this albumn was a considered massively expensive for its time... and well worth the money. Besides the singles. "Woman in Chains", "Sowing the Seeds of Love" and "Advice for the Young at Heart" the rest of the albumn in particulare " Year of The Knife", and "Standing on The Corner.." are equally fantastic. The energy and compositional complexity of this albumn, with layer upon layer of tracks both instrumental and vocal, make it the most intricate production ever created by Tears for Fears or any band for that matter. In fact the break up of the band shortly after the completion of this albumn was largly believed to have been due to Roland Orzabal painful and frustrating approach to production... It is simply one of the greatest albumns ever created.

This is the "Sgt Pepper's" of the late 1980's, and it even looks similar! A great CD from an under-rated band. Thier range of musical styles and talent has been underappreciated because of thier being lumped into the "80's" pop band genre. Don't be misled by critics, this is outstanding from beginning to end. Of special note is the work by Oleta Adams, who was discovered by the band, and the singing of Curt Smith. Curt doesn't have the range of voice that his bandmate Roland does, but adds more soul. Also, try and get the VCD of "Going to California" which is the live tour from this release. Takes the music to an even higher level and adds some treats as well. One of the best recorded works of the 80's, and "timeless". The extra tracks are also excellent.

If you love music, well now you've found your favorite CD! Seeds of Love is my absolute favorite CD out of the 450+ I own. It is poetic, beautifully written, incredibly creative and heartstopping. Woman in Chains will make you cry and Badman's Song will make you jump up, dance and sing. You will find yourself closing your eyes and physically absorbing every lyric. Turn it up loud and let the sweet but powerful music wash over you. You will love and cherish every single note!!!

While this CD was recorded over 14 years ago the music resonates as powerfully today, perhaps even more than when it was released as it was a bit ahead of its time. In fact, the songs here seem to fit as easily into the 60's/70's rock and roll era of Pink Floyd, the Beatles and Led Zeppelin as they would into the 80's pop scene or the darker moods of the 90's era. This re-released version has four extra tracks that are worth the effort.
Truly representing a wide range of styles starting with the smooth ballad "Woman in Chains" featuring the soulful voice of Oleta Adams. The highlights are the following two tracks: "Badman's Song", a bluesy jazz number and "Sowing the Seeds of Love" the hit single inspired by the Beatles better work. The track "Year of the Knife" is a powerful rock and roll song. "Famous Last Words" and "Advice for the Young At Heart" round out the single releases. Both are great songs.
The extra tracks include a jazz instrumental, and a couple of unique blends of late 80's pop, including a rap version with the "Sowing the Seeds" lyrics called "Johnny Panic".
I have to say this is among my favorite recordings ever. From the deep lyrics to the wide range of musical styles, the CD has no weak spots for me. If all you know of Tears for Fears are top 40 pop hits, then try this one out. One of the best CDs from any era.
