TEARS FOR FEARS - EVERYBODY LOVES A HAPPY ENDING, album released 2004.
Encoded 192Kbps [Lame] mp3. Covers included.
Everybody Loves A Happy Ending was the first album in 8 years by Tears for Fears. It was released on September 14th 2004. The album was delayed a couple times. They were going to release it in late 2003 and early 2004. The eight year delay was due to the members working on side-solo projects and taking a break after years of hard work.
Like their earlier work, Everybody Loves A Happy Ending features Tears For Fears hallmarks of vibrant Beatles-esque melodies, solid songwriting, and turns of phrase, but the album also has a free spirit that Orzabal and Smith would have shunned in their earlier, more serious years. This spirit is largely the work of co-writer and producer Charlton Pettus, who succeeded at the formidable task of welding Orzabal's lush songwriting with the live energy of Smith's Mayfield shows. Indeed, one of the highest compliments paid to the album was one reviewer's comment that John Lennon and Paul McCartney are alive and well.
