Mad World: The Collection

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Mad World: The Collection would be the perfect Curt Smith-era Tears for Fears anthology if it included the band's earliest hit, "Pale Shelter." All of the others are here ("Shout," "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," "Head Over Heels," "Mad World," "Sowing the Seeds of Love," etc.), along with enough B-sides and rarities to satisfy even the most ardent fan. Listeners looking for a more comprehensive compilation, specifically one that covers the band's entire career up to 2004's excellent Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, would be better off with 2008's two-disc Gold.
