    The Seeds Of Love (On Sale)

    Tears for Fears The Seeds of Love on Numbered Limited Edition LP from Mobile Fidelity Silver Label


    Meticulously Produced 1989 Orchestral Pop Work Includes Top 40 Hits Sowing the Seeds of Love and Woman In Chains


    Vocalist Oleta Adams Debuts and Aids English Pop-Rock Duo's Pursuit of Soul, Gospel Strains


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI: LP Brings Intricate Melodicism to Foreground


    Having elected to defy tradition and wait four years to release a follow-up to their commercial breakthrough Songs From the Big Chair, Tears for Fears expand their creative prowess on The Seeds of Love. Opting for grand melodies over radio-targeted hooks and reflecting a slightly sunnier disposition, the compositions establish an even closer relationship to soulful roots and hint at gospel undercurrents. The duo, too, also discovered a secret weapon in the person of Oleta Adams.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity';s world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Label LP resolves with striking clarity and precision the myriad layers of orchestral-themed information that pack jazzy fare such as Standing on the Corner of the Third World and balladic turns like "Year of the Knife." Distinguished with sumptuous production techniques that reportedly cost more than one million pounds to realize, the album benefits from the enhanced spaciousness, bigger soundstages, increased atmospherics, and amplified dynamic contrasts afforded by this audiophile collector's edition.


    While again pursuing themes associated emotional hurt and healing, Tears for Fears take a more grandiose turn on arrangements steeped in suite-like forms and epic pop psychedelia. Adams lends warmth via her gospel-shot vocals as well as her female presence. She grounds songs with a combination of gentle poignancy and soaring theatricality, bringing a can't-miss energy to rigorously crafted works that aim for a lasting transcendence independent of radio interest.


    Of course, with the proudly bombastic Sowing the Seeds of Love and Woman In Chains, Tears for Fears again found chart-scraping success, the hits rewards for uncompromising boldness and this record's expertly polished sound. The group's sonic evolution is also apparent on the album cover: an eye-popping, colorful montage suggestive of the music's harlequin textures and stylish devices replaces the stark, grey-hued image carried by its predecessor. Here's a set that you can fairly judge by the cover.
