Pure Audio Blu-ray Edition

24bit/96 khz High Fidelity Audiophile Sound

Includes three versions of the blockbuster album: the original 1985 mix remastered, 5.1 Surround Sound mix and a new stereo remix by Steven Wilson!

Tears for Fears' phenomenal 10-million-selling second album marked a transition in the band's sound and catapulted them into international prominence.

Their 1985 sophomore album, Songs From The Big Chair, remains the duo's highest-selling album. This album smash peaked at No. 2 on the U.K. charts and stayed at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard chart for five consecutive weeks.

Superdeluxeedition.com calls this "arguably the best Pure Audio to be released since the format launched in late 2012 because it includes three versions of the blockbuster album: the original 1985 mix remastered, a brand-new stereo remix for 2014 by Steven Wilson, and a 5.1 surround sound remix."

The album includes six hit singles including "Shout," "Mothers Talk" and "Everybody Wants To Rule The World."

"The songwriting of Roland Orzabal,  Curt Smith, and keyboardist Ian Stanley took a huge leap forward, drawing on reserves of palpable emotion and lovely, protracted melodies that draw just as much on soul and R&B music as they do on immediate pop hooks.... It is not only a commercial triumph, it is an artistic tour de force. And in the loping, percolating 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World,' Tears for Fears perfectly captured the zeitgeist of the mid-'80s while impossibly managing to also create a dreamy, timeless pop classic. Songs from the Big Chair is one of the finest statements of the decade." — AllMusic
