Songs From The Big Chair has now been digitally remastered from the original master tapes and now comes with a second disc of 12 period rarities. The 24 page booklet also contains some highly informative sleeve notes including an interview with Roland and Curt written by Uncut Editor Paul. Songs From The Big Chair is one of the key albums, commercially and artistically, of the 1980s. It has a little something of all the period's signal music genres: the bright New Pop of ABC and Heaven 17, the mellow club sound of Sade and Simply Red and the widescreen anthemic rock of U2 and Simple Minds. It was this criss-crossing of styles that made Tears For Fears so unique around this time, and goes some way towards describing the trailblazing brand of stadium rock-soul as showcased on Songs From The Big Chair.
