Songs From The Big ChairTears For Fears
1. Shout - Great, albeit a bit long. 2. The Working Hour - Kind of blows, honestly. 3. Everybody Wants to Rule the World - A huge song for a reason. Catchy, cool production, dynamic. 4. Mothers Talk - First thoughts: this song slaps. Later thoughts: Still slaps. 5. I Believe - accidentally ignored almost all of this song. Not my thing. 6. Broken - ANOTHER SLAPPER. Also, tone. 7. Head Over Heels / Broken - I dig the continued use of the motif from the prior track. Sick bass in the opening. Got some Hall and Oates vibes here and there. I really dig all of the falsetto. The head over heels refrain part seems very familiar, but I don't think I actually know the song as a whole. 8. Listen - Slow to start, and doesn't seem to really ever get going... I kind of feel like they just had too much fun dicking around with noises/effects/chimes in the studio. The synthy organ tone while he sings reminds me of Bill Wurtz, which is funny. Overall this song is meh. This album does have some really good New Wave on it. Shout, Everybody Wants to Rule the World, Mothers Talk, Head Over Heels / Broken, and Broken are all really good tunes.
