Not that Tears For Fears were ever conventional "The Hurting"
does have an overall sobering affect.At least lyrically-suffering
and discontent seem to be a reucerring theme.Yet "Pale Shelter",
"Ideas For Opiates",the minimal "Memory Fades "and the fabulous
"Mad World" are musically ambitious enough to back up the bands
lyrical ideas.Definately a stand-out moment of 1983!

HASH(0xa59f64ec) out of 5 stars This is their best work March 25 2000
By David Jarnagin - Published on
Format: Audio CD
"The Hurting" is an appropriate title given the tone of each song on this album, but it is pleasure that you will find by listening to it.
This is, song for song, one of the best albums from the '80's.
Perhaps you have heard "Songs From The Big Chair" and have wondered about their earlier work? Forget about a "Greatest Hits" or any Tears For Fears compilation, this is the album you must have in your library.
You want an album that can be played from start to finish without skipping songs? You want this work from Tears From Fears. It is their best.

HASH(0xa59f6540) out of 5 stars One of the best albums from 1983. Aug. 24 2002
By Distant Voyageur - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Tears For Fears were and still are an incredible band that few others can rival.
The edition I'm reviewing is the older edition without the bonus tracks.
The Hurting, released in 1983 is TFFs debut album that unfortunately is overshadowed by it's follow-up 1985s Songs From The Big Chair. The Hurting is lighter musically but lyrically it's probably the darkest album of all of their 80s releases. My favorite songs are Change, the title track & Start Of The Breakdown. The lyrical prowess is strong especially with Mad World & and the doomsday like Start Of The Breakdown. This track is my favorite song from this often underrated LP. Just the electric electrifying guitar at the beginning of the opening title track proves that TFFstood out well from other bands from the early 80s and now almost 20 years after it's release The Hurting still stands out well from most other LPs that were released the same year. The last track Start Of The Breakdown was pretty far ahead of it's time and coul almost fit on the Big Chair LP.
The remastered edition has four bonus tracks. Two are extended remixes, Mad World (world remix)is the original with an altered beat. and one is an extended version of the B-Side The Way You Are. The best of them is the extended version of the intimate Change which is extended to about 6 minutes.
As I listened to Start Of The Breakdown I've noticed that two other songs share similar chord structures with this one. One is Always In The Past, a B-Side from the Seeds Of Love sessions and the other is Hypnoculture from Rolands solo album Tomcats Screaming Outside. No offense to any of these songs. I just simply noticed similar chord structures between these three songs, that's all.
The Hurting is a must own.

HASH(0xa59f6978) out of 5 stars Healing the Hurting June 1 2000
By Tasha - Published on
Format: Audio CD
For anyone who was ever denied love as a child... Lonely children, wounded children, violated children, sorrowful children, discarded children... Too intelligent and insightful to be considered "pop," this album belongs with psychology books on healing childhood abuse, not with cool 80s dance music. If there were a category for healing, literary concept albums, this would be in the top 10. Sometimes just hearing your feelings expressed by another, knowing you're not alone in the dark, can be all the therapy you need. Give this one to someone still hurting.

HASH(0xa59f6d38) out of 5 stars Tears for Fears' Freshmen Album Is Fantastic June 5 2015
By By CJs Pirate - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Tears for Fears' The Hurting produced my favorite TFF song: Mad World. But then again, Pale Shelter is pretty awesome too. And when you look that those are just two of the first three songs on a disc that contains ten, it shows there's a great possibility that several other songs will mean something to you too.

Considering this was their first album, well, TFF was well on their way to making some good tunes, great music and wonderful memories. If anything, The Hurting didn't hurt a thing, certainly not their image!

HASH(0xa59f6e1c) out of 5 stars A true classic Nov. 5 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Adolescent angst at its best. A true timepiece. Nothing was held back in this sparse, catchy, emotional album. Watch Me Bleed is a masterpiece it just keeps growing on itself. I still love this CD 15 years later.
