Sowing The Seeds Of Love
Label: Island Def Jam
Tears For Fears took a great leap forward with this swirling mix of psychedelia, mellow prog, sensitive lite rock and shimmering pop. "Sowing the Seeds of Love," a majestic epic that showcased the duo's lifelong Beatles fixation, is one of their all-time best, and "Advice" sounds like a career highlight for Spandau Ballet -- which is not meant a back-handed compliment. Daring, if overly serious (as much of their '80s work is).
