Songs from the Big Chair is the second album by the British rock band Tears for Fears. It was released in 1985 on Phonogram Records and remains their highest selling album to date. The album peaked at No. 2 in the U.K. (where it remained in the Top 10 for over six months and in the Top 40 for over a year) and reached No. 1 (for five weeks) in the U.S. It contained a string of international hit singles, including: "Mothers Talk," "Shout," "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" and "Head over Heels."
High-fidelity SHM-SACD format (fully compatible with standard SACD player, but it does not play on standard CD players). Japanese pressing.
"The album also heralded a dramatic maturation in the band's music, away from the synth-pop brand with which it was (unjustly) seared following the debut, and towards a complex, enveloping pop sophistication. The songwriting of Orzabal, 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...Songs from the Big Chair is one of the finest statements of the decade." — AllMusic.com
