Curt Smith, one-half the duo, left after 1989's The Seeds of Love. Tears for Fears already had one excellent hits package on the market, 1992's Tears Roll Down, but this set improves on that one by including all the tracks from that album, plus an additional five.

Also included is the non-album U.K. single "The Way You Are," "Suffer the Children" from The Hurting, "New Star" from the film Threesome, and the follow-up to their final charted U.S. single, "Break It Down Again" and "Goodnight Song," as well as a non-LP single remix of "I Believe." This album does not include any tracks from Raoul and the Kings of Spain, but clocking in at 79 minutes, it is filled to the brim with hits and stands as the definitive Tears for Fears collection, with excellent liner notes to boot.

    Forgettable

    You have to be a REAL fan to like this. Three or so of the songs were recognizable; had never heard the others. Ho-hum.
