The Seeds Of LoveTears 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.

Donnie Darko Original Motion Picture ScoreReleased shortly after 9/11, Donnie Darko has become a cult masterpiece. Michael Andrews scored the album in his studio of vintage Moogs and electric vibraphones, and-when the music budget was capped-delivered a humble piano & vocal ballad covering the Tears for Fears track "Mad World" with his pal Gary Jules.
"Rookie composer Michael Andrews, whose only previous work was for television's 'Freaks and Geeks,' captures the underlying dread and unsettling beauty of the film Like Air's soundtrack to The Virgin Suicides, Andrews' songs create a specific sense of place." - ALL MUSIC GUIDE1. Carpathian Ridge

Limits Of DesireLimits of Desire is SmallBlack's most accomplished album yet. It's a crystalline realization of a sound they've
been building toward since their self-titled EP in 2009. Now a full-time four piece, Josh Hayden Kolenik
(keys, vocals), Ryan Heyner (guitar, keys, vocals), Juan Pieczanski (bass, guitar) and Jeff Curtin (drums,
percussion), the band have moved way beyond the hazy home recorded sound of their previous releases
toward a full-fledged, but still self-produced, clear approach. Where 2010's New Chain was a lesson in
maximalist pop, Limits of Desirefindsthe band trimming theirsound to the essentials, yet hitting new and
unexpected heightswith the addition of live drums, electric guitar and trumpet to the existing Small Black
Tonally the songs sweep and glide over lush keys, bolstered by lyrics that illustrate the semi-abstract
moments of lost opportunities and misread signs, hinted at by the coverimage.The title trackwhirlssoftly,
and channels luminaries Tears for Fears and The Blue Nile, anchored by Pieczanski's punchy bass as
Kolenik sings: "Otherlives droned/ farfrom the grasswhere Ilay/ each eye stared out the oppositeway."As
much as the record is about looking for deeper connections, it's also about avoiding real life, if only for a
moment-getting out of your own head just long enough to calm down and find perspective.
"Free At Dawn" and "No Stranger" do what fans have come to love Small Black for, only better. They're
smart pop bangerstingedwith a specific brand of melancholy thatslowly build to night-affirming climaxes.
While Breathless" ups the tempo, over synth stabs, with lyrics that tackle apathy and uncertainty with
catchy grace: "I'm standing in tomorrow'sway/ future'sfine/least itseems okay." It paints a concise portrait
of a generation strugglingwith unlimited freedom and malaise.
The band builds on a rich history of synth pop by making a thoroughly modern album, on both the front
and back end. One that seeks out cohesion, connection and calm in a world that won't sit still. Limits of
Desire doesn't attempt to provide any solutions, but coming to terms with not finding the answers feels
infinitely more fruitful.Free At Dawn

The Making OfThe Bohicas debut album The Making Of lands blow after blow. A barrage of killer hooks, razor blade riffs and choruses that slap you in the face, grab your hand and lead you onto the dance floor. All shot through with pulp imagery torn from the pages of a graphic novel. Their story begins in Essex where as schoolmates they first came together over a love of The Beatles, The Kinks, Ray Charles and the new wave of guitar bands who emerged at the start of the century after the scrag ends of Britpop had finally limped off. The album was was produced by Mark Rankin (Queens Of The Stone Age, Bombay Bicycle Club), Chris 'Merrick' Hughes (Tears For Fears, Adam And The Ants) and Oli Bayston (Toy, Boxed In).

Ellipsis180 Gram Vinyl Record
As is tradition, writing sessions for the album saw Biffy Clyro - Simon Neil (vocals/guitar) and the Johnstonbrothers James (bass) and Ben (drums) working in the intimate environment of their practice room. They then headed to Los Angeles for recording sessions with producer Rich Costey (Muse, My Chemical Romance, SigurRos). Citing influences as diverse as Tears For Fears' Songs From The Big Chair album, DJ Arca and Deafheaven,Simon Neil has described Ellipsis as more of a punch to the nose than a big cuddle.
Lyrically, the album's songstackle personal issues with the idea of fighting back a recurring theme. Such themes are also apparent in the album's visceral first single Wolves of Winter which captures BiffyClyro's famous blend of angular riffs, pummelling rhythms and strident hooks. Says Neil: 'Wolves of Winter' isabout us being wolves on a patch and if you come onto that patch, we'll tear you limb-from-limb.
An Ellipsis (most commonly depicted as ...) indicates a continuation: in this case, Biffy Clyro's new body of workis an ongoing representation of everything that the band have stood for since first debuting in 2002 with theBlackened Sky album.$23.99180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - Sealed Buy Now
Blue Roses (Discontinued) (On Sale)Laura Groves began writing songs as a teenager in Yorkshire. With an old family piano and a borrowed guitar, thinking of the records she loved, lyrics that broke her heart, phrasing that made it race, composers cradling her aspirations. Influences spanning genres and generations; from Bart?k to Bush, Tiersen to Tears For Fears, Debussy to Du Maurier. She dreamt of writing, arranging, performing and producing an album that would be as treasured by someone else, and hopefully inspire them in the same way.
The journey from then until now has not only given her more years, but more confidence, more experience of life, the courage to let the music express when words seem too restrictive. The name Blue Roses is encompassing; it is more than just one person and their sole aspirations, it is what happened in making the album, this process gave the need for another, more representative name. Blue Roses is the story, with Laura Groves as the protagonist. Included is a cast of family members to play instruments and a choir of firm friends, acquaintances and perfect strangers gathered together in a caf? to help. A small amount of money and a little faith was stretched with the benevolence and enthusiasm of those who stood at each door. From recording in living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms in various houses, to recording a Steinway in a local piano shop (a millionaire, who despite having paid a five-figure sum for the concert grand piano, was enchanted enough by the story and the music to allow Laura to record with it before it was moved to entertain guests his Lake District hotel). The equipment graciously bought and generously lent, (most of which was older than Laura herself, some of which was of pensionable age) put her on a sonic par with her idols and instilled in her a romance which translated through the Neumann, the Gibson and Wurlitzer, the Neve. The valves, the plates, the springs, the tape, transformers and circuitry are as musical as the instruments and voices passing through them, and are part of the story, the color between the lines.1.
