Tears For Fears / Rule The World - The Greatest Hits

Tears For Fears  / Rule The World (vinyl)

Virgin/EMI couldn’t have gone to less effort with the physical CD edition of Tears For FearsRule The World. The product (not the music, of course) was crap, frankly – jewel case, slim booklet with a few photos and a blank page and no information about the songs. Here’s hoping that the double vinyl edition, due out on Friday, will feel like something you actually want to ‘hold in your hands’ and have in your collection. Read more
