Remember - Gino Soccio - Remember / The Visitors / Les Visiteurs (Vinyl)

It was M doing a freaky Pop Muzik with the La-La-la's, and then breaking into a winding down electronical beat with no vocals, and further echoing effects of electronic nature. Viola, this album or CD was not meant to gather dust on anyone's shelf. Not if you have the speakers, imagination, and ability to mix songs at home. Great to dance and have wealth of composition at once.

Can't describe how surprised I am to find undecent review here. Much more, really Every track is hypnotic. Soccio, your talent is undeniable! Every song has its own unique sound; this is not a "cookie cutter" album. And even though this is disco music, it's a far cry from the mindless "ooh, ooh, boogie" tracks of the period. The excellent remix of "Remember" is worth the price of this CD alone.

A must have for any serious music collection. It contains some very good tracks, notably "Remember," "It's Alright," and two others. As such, it is less original than Soccio's outstanding first lp. It does, however, show beginning ventures into the New Wavish electronic music that would become prominent in dance in this and the next several years with groups such as Visage. He's innovative and adventerous with his music. I have all the cd's of his albums, but the one that gets played the most is Face To Face.

Every track is fascinating and the beats are real smooth. I have to admit, I don't always get into long dance songs. More often than not, I tend to listen to the single versions if they're available. With Mr. Soccio, it's a different story. I have no problem delving into his long tracks because they sound so amazing, especially when it comes to this particular album. I'm glad Unidisc included the remix of Remember and the single version of It's Alright as bonus tracks.

I always felt that Mr. Soccio's voice was too far in the background on the original mix of Remember, but on the remix, it's more up in the front. This album is one of my very favourites, whether I'm in the mood to dance or go into a trance with my headphones on.

Don't miss this one!!! Even the critics liked him! And we all know how terrible they were to disco overall. The only bad track, in my opinion, is the annoying "S-Beat" which we can only attest to a momentarily lapse of good taste, when he tried in vain to go in a more rock-oriented direction.

The song embodies the album's central theme of burnout in the music scene through chunky guitars and snarky vocals. Though the record acknowledges a perpetual state of arrested development that comes with being a musician, the band is anything but stagnant musically.

Opening themselves up to ideas outside the constraints of their slacker rock sound, Weakened Friends puts the full force of their creative ambition into Quitter. Incorporating banjo, pedal steel, horns, extensive synth arrangement and a number of non-instrumental sounds such as ovens and camera flashes, Weakened Friends expand on their universe of sounds on their new LP. Queen Of My World picks up where Bat Fangs left off: big riffs and pinched leads, a reeling, rocking mass of guitars and vocals, with hall reverb "whoa-oh" choruses similar to those that filled arenas in the 80s heyday of hair metal.

The album is both a reclamation and a reevaluation of a sound that was once a breeding ground for a particularly egregious brand of cock rock dude-bro. Songwriter Betsy Wright reflects on teenage mischief through the hair metal sounds of her youth. Stories of hanging out in the woods, getting high, and generally just doing bad shit are soundtracked with soaring guitar solos and crunchy riffs, opening a gateway into an era of high octane rock and adolescent antics.

Though many of the songs are autobiographical, at its core the record is a lens into other worlds, gazing into timelines that could have been and childhood memories so distant they may as well be past lives. The original album only had 8 songs but the remastered version also had a few remixes and outtatakes.

Overall, just like the debut album "Songs From the Big Chair" is a fantastic and very well thought album, like I said before, it deals more with emotional healing and broader issues like the family based debut. The sound is also a little more mature with less synthesizers and even more artistic freedom.

Both of the albums are fantastic though and if you liked their debut, I see no reason to not like this one either. The songs are all brought out with such flare and the vocals are done excellent, songwriting is on point as well.

Just everything about each of the tracks. You feel what Tears for Fears were trying and succedded in doing making a throughly great record from start to finish. I know many folks have heard "Shout" if they havent well its really something that has to be appreciated first hand. It is long but you dont even notice that. You just find your self all into the song from beginning to end. Another one that i really enjoyed is "The Working Hour" it doesnt have to do to much, it just brings out another side of the group that you didnt know.

At that point your ready to repeat it Remember - Gino Soccio - Remember / The Visitors / Les Visiteurs (Vinyl) and even when its done.

The song is still playing in your head which to me is the sign of a good song. Also of note the remix for Shout is almost 2 minutes longer than the original version and makes the song that much better as well. As if that would even be possible. Also enjoyed "Mothers Talk" remix as well brings the song into a different light. I didnt however care for the other bonus tracks 9 through 13, something just felt seriously off with those songs.

But that aside this cd still gets a 5 star rating from me. It does what most artists can't do bring you very quality music at no comprise to the artist making it in this case Tears for Fears. You guys own!!

It was worth every penny, to get a few more songs from them. I have played this album sooooo much over the years and I still never tire of it. I don't hear much of a difference from the previous CD in the sound quality, but it sounds great.

This is really great music from the lyrics to the production to the performance. I saw them years ago and they sounded as good as the album. Tears For Fears made some great music both before and after this album, but it was with this one that all the ideas really came together.

I really don't believe it is possible for someone to NOT like something on this album. Having spent so much money on vinyl i have MOST of tff's 12" singlesit was a difficult transition to compact disc.

For this japanese compilation, i could finally rest. In order to truly appreciate this compilation, just think of the time you waited for this release, and how rare the tracks are. I love TFF, but this CD, apart from a few select tracks, leaves you with tracks that are called "remixes" but are nearly indistinguishable from the album and single versions of the songs. The first track, however, is a great recent dancefloor filler reworking of the classic "Shout".

This is an "OK" compilation, but buyers should beware though, this compilation isn't exactly what the title leads you to expect. On the other hand here's a brief, non-musicians view of the remixed versions. Shout is a version I've never heard before Pale Shelter has a different intro and the chorus is repeated a little more, but is essentially the same.

I Believe is, yes, the very soulful rerecording also the video version of the song. Remember - Gino Soccio - Remember / The Visitors / Les Visiteurs (Vinyl) World Mother's Talk, extremely different, kind of hard to explain Okay, so I'm not a musician, just calling it like I hear it. I was truly hoping for a totally remixed album They formed in Bath on the back of the New Wave boom of the late 's.

After a one-off indie 45, they signed to precision and enjoyed a radio hit with 'Elvis Should Play Ska' referring to Elvis Costello's critical remarks about the 2-Tone scenewhich proved popular across Europe. Their former group were more concerned with new wave music rather than epic pop. Better still, though, are the nine extra tracks, some of which were to feature on an aborted second album.

The move towards their emotional keyboard-driven pop success of the future was just a small step away but much of this music is surprisingly palatable.

This is a very accurate statement. For many years much of the work of Graduate was not widely available. Included with this album are songs that Graduate was to include on a second album. Two of these songs were actually released while 7 additional songs that never were released are included.

Despite being a different sound, this is one terrific album - another gem involving Curt and Roland. Curt and Roland would leave Graduate in Much of the reason why they left Graduate was that they didn't want to be confined to a band. When they would form Tears For Fears - they would operate in a "project" mode.

This would mean that Curt and Roland would form the nucleus and bring in surrounding musicians to help them complete the picture. Graduate was a full group - and the quintet was the base for the group. When Tears For Fears was formed, they would start out as a Synth-Pop band and eventually would transform themselves into a more natural sound that many would term "Beatle-esque".

As the title suggests, this was an album that dealt with the emotions surrounding pain. This was an album that really had a heavy Synth-Pop sound - and was an excellent debut album. This is a very different sound than Graduate. The sound of Graduate was capturing on a music style known as Remember - Gino Soccio - Remember / The Visitors / Les Visiteurs (Vinyl) Mod Revival. Graduate's sound also had New Wave influences some might even argue that Mod Revival was really an off-shoot of New Wave.

In latethe Mod Revival had begun to take full stream. Graduate's sound emulated a very close match to bands such as The Jam and early Elvis Costello. The "Acting My Age" album cover seems to have visual references to this target.

Remember - Gino Soccio - Remember / The Visitors / Les Visiteurs (Vinyl) Drums have the colors of the target and the "Age" is put in a target icon that reminds you of the Mod Revival target. As much as Tears For Fears became Beatle-esque in their music and appearance with their later music, the pictures of Curt and Roland with the Graduate band members in suits and ties conjures up memories of the suit and tie days of the Beatles in their early days The suits and ties also remind me of a more modern group - The Hives.

You won't hear too much of Curt in the vocals department - on Graduate, it's clear that Roland is the Remember - Gino Soccio - Remember / The Visitors / Les Visiteurs (Vinyl) vocalist.

As mentioned the music does not sound like the direction that Tears For Fears would take on "The Hurting". In most cases, the music is much more campy. I mentioned Elvis Costello above. With Graduate it isn't hard to draw parallels in the styles between Graduate and Costello - it's easy to see the Costello influence. It was around this time that there was also a revival in Ska Music. Costello had made a comment about Ska artists being one-hit wonders.

Roland felt Costello had sour grapes and thus wrote the song. There are many other good tracks on this album. In fact, all of the tracks are terrific.

The first four songs are outstanding - "Acting My Age", "Sick and Tired", "Ever Met a Day", and "Dancing Nights" are all very catchy songs and immediately establish the talent and potential of Graduate.

If you listen to the chords and melodies of "Ever Met a Day", you may actually hear a bit of a Disco influence despite the fact that nobody admitted it in their music, there was an influence in many songs. The best song is a very unique song that is included is "I See Through You". This was a song that was released, but not on the original "Acting My Age" album. The best thing is how the song "pauses" in several spots - makes a great effect.

Underneath the high-octane teenage antics is a genuine tribute to the unique friendships that can only form in the pseudo-invincibility of youth. Box Kingston, NJ Don Giovanni Records. They reformed the band in under a new name,Sign Sytem. The member were the same,but everything else changed around them.

Their new label was Bellaphon with a new producer Ian Wilson produced also Vasco Rossi ,the new musical style was Synth-pop, Disco,Italo with english texts only. I think the other songs are good too. Nothing punk or new wave,but nice easy-listening songs with typical 80's sound. They made only one album. Harald Hoffmann has been working as a photographer for record-companies, musicians, actors, magazines and advertising agencies.

And as far as i know, Christoph Aengenheyster has been working as attorney in Oberhausen. If you know more about them and the other members, let me know please!! The album also features the original version of the top 75 hit 'Change'.

They used synthsizers, drum machines with a meliodic and hook laden sound. But the music itself was often melancholy and they brought up serious issues like family values like few contemporary bands at the time had the guts to sing about.

Tears for Fears got their name from Arthur Janov's primal scream therapy and they band consisted of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, two highschool friends from Bath, England. Roland was the writer of most songs during the career while they both were co-singing.

Some of the music may sound a little dated today this being released in but the touchy subjects they bring up are still present today. The opener and title track is a great pop song and at the same time a good introduction to what is coming, it's about children suffering without anyone noticing or caring. Tears for Fears trademark was mixing good pop with serious subjects and they really succeeded with that. The moody alternative song brings up the sad reality we're living in, a world without rules or morals and the people suffering from it.

Excellent and haunting ballad. The song is slow paced and distinct with guitars, synthesizers and percussion. It brings up the lack of love some children get cause of bad parenthood. The song is focusing on the destructive behavior of a loved one.

The last song is called "Start of a Breakdown" feautures a catchy synthesizer sound and Remember - Gino Soccio - Remember / The Visitors / Les Visiteurs (Vinyl) percussion.

Why this song was not released as single is beyond me, but it's one of the best songs. It's another fantastic song by the way. Uptempo with great percussion arrangements. Nice it was added. Overall, Tears for Fears magnificient debut was one of the most daring and thoughtful albums of the 80's. It's equally intellegent and beautiful full of good lyrics and great arrangements. Some of Remember - Gino Soccio - Remember / The Visitors / Les Visiteurs (Vinyl) songs may sounds a little dated today, considering all the new equipment used in today's music, but the lyrics and subjects they brought up are just as present in today's society.

This album may get a little too personal and the lyrics get frightening when you listen closely to them at times, however if you're a music fan that likes smart lyrics and lyrics that make sense then this is something for you. It's a concept album and it Remember - Gino Soccio - Remember / The Visitors / Les Visiteurs (Vinyl) thoughtful and sincere. One of the greatest debuts of the 80's, let alone albums. Folks, I had forgotten about this song until I played it at my desk today.

The major reason I even bought this CD was due to "your" high praise!! Excellent music! Thank you all! Five stars!! Remix 15 Shout U. Also features seven bonus tracks, U. Just like the first, it deals with serious subjects like anxiousness, anger and pain but apart from the first it concentrates more on the healing.

Needless to say Curt Smith ad Roland Orzabal's second album is just as good as the first but it sold much better and gave them the super status they deserved. Still today, looking back "Songs From the Big Chair" is one of the brightest moments of the 80's. It topped the billboard in This slow paced song is very long and it capture one of Orzabal's best moments.

It's well crafted with beautiful musically and with intellegent and well though lyrics and it has a memorable melody Remember - Gino Soccio - Remember / The Visitors / Les Visiteurs (Vinyl) chorus. The perfect pop song!. The lyrics deal with the impact media has on our lives and the never ending urge of integrity and control.

If media was bad in the mid 80's, Tears for Fears should have seen how the media became 20 years later. A rocky midtempo that also was released on single. I believe it deals with self esteem, to be able to fulfill for your Remember - Gino Soccio - Remember / The Visitors / Les Visiteurs (Vinyl) no matter what.

It's a midtempo that also deal with healing after being broken down, it segues into the next song "Head over Heels". It's another stripped down piano ballad, beautiful instrumentation and very artistic with backround choirs. Listen to it all. The original album only had 8 songs but the remastered version also had a few remixes and outtatakes. Overall, just like the debut album "Songs From the Big Chair" is a fantastic and very well thought album, like I said before, it deals more with emotional healing and broader issues like the family based debut.
