I Tears For Fears (Curt Smith e Roland Orzabal) si misero in luce nel 1983 con un funk-rock sottilmente nevrotico che sconvolgeva le convenzioni del genere traendo le liriche dalla psicanalisi e le musiche dalla tradizione di Peter Gabriel, Robert Fripp e Robert Waytt.

Su The Hurting (Mercury, 1983) quel loro "primal pop", piu` da adulti che da adolescenti, frutto` cionondimeno i successi di The Hurting e Mad World.

Songs From The Big Chair (Mercury, 1985) fece anche meglio, conscrandoli fra le star del synthpop con Shout, Head Over Heels e Everybody Wants To Rule The World (il loro massimo hit). Quegli arrangiamenti sofisticati li portarono a Seeds Of Love (Fontana, 1989), una sequenza di canzoni (fra cui Advice For The Young At Heart, Woman In Chains e Sowing The Seeds Of Love) incollate in forma di suite.

Dopo la rottura con Smith, Orzabal registro` con l'aiuto del polistrumentista Alan Griffiths Elemental (Mercury, 1993) e Raoul And The Kings Of Spain (Epic, 1995), due album di musica leggera ispirata a David Bowie, Elton John e Beatles.

Tears For Fears returned with Everybody Loves A Happy Ending (2004).

(Translation by/ Tradotto da Stefano Bedetti)

Tears For Fears (Curt Smith & Roland Orzabal) came out in 1983 with a finely neurotic funk-rock which upset the conventions of the genre deriving lyrics from psychoanalysis and musics from the Peter Gabriel, Robert Fripp and Robert Wyatt tradition.

On The Hurting (Mercury, 1983) their “primal pop”, more for adults than teenagers, payed nevertheless the successes of The Hurting and Mad World.

Songs >From The Big Chair (Mercury, 1985) did even better than the predecessor, ordaining them as synthpop stars with Shout, Head Over Heels and Everybody wants to rule the world (their most successful hit). Those sophisticated arrangements led them to Seeds of Love (Fontana, 1989), a sequence of songs (among the others: Advice For The Young At Heart, Woman In Chains, Sowing The Seeds Of Love), fixed in a suite-form.

After the breakdown with Smith, Orzabal recorded, with the help of the polinstrumentist Alan Griffiths, Elemental (Mercury, 1993) and Raoul And The Kings Of Spain (Epic, 1995), two albums of easy-listening inspired by David Bowie, Elton John and Beatles.

I Tears For Fears sono poi ritornati con Everybody Loves A Happy Ending (2004).
