Tears For Fears - The Hurting
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
The Hurting, the 1983 debut album from Tears For Fears features the hit singles "Mad World", "Change", and "Pale Shelter".
Thematically and sonically, The Hurting is an extraordinarily consistent and persuasive record, and, as such, it gives the listener the sort of cathartic experience set down in the name of the group, in spite of the almost relentlessly gloomy material on display here. The tastefully sparse instrumentation and arrangements open up a space inside which Orzabal and Smith can play out their emotional dramas, taking the listener along with them by virtue of a series of marvelous pop hooks and winning melodies, making the experience of catharsis just what it ought to be - an uplifting rejuvenation of the spirits.
