Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of the British Pop/Ska outfit's sophomore album including bonus tracks. Originally released in 1980, Absolutely moved away from the band's Ska origins and embraced a style that mixed Reggae, '60s Pop, Music Hall and other genres together into a wholly unified sound. In other words, Absolutely was the first album that truly represented Madness' unique and timeless sound. Disc One includes the original album plus seven bonus audio tracks and three enhanced videos. Disc Two contains 15 tracks recorded live at the Hammersmith Odeon. Digipak features original album artwork and 24 page color booklet including lyrics, photos and liner notes by journalist Paul Lester.
Originally released in 1983, the debut album from Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, otherwise known as Tears For Fears, instantly blasted off one of the most stellar careers of the 1980s. Immaculately produced, stunningly sequenced and comprised of a sequence of timeless electronic pop classics, ‘The Hurting’ sympathetically explored themes of childhood angst, adolescent heartache and the struggles of the transition from boy to man. It also gave birth to four of the era’s essential singles – ‘Suffer The Children’, ‘Pale Shelter’, ‘Change’ and the landmark megahit ‘Mad World’. Compiled with the full involvement of Roland and Curt, ‘The Hurting – 30th Anniversary Edition’ brings together the original album remastered at Abbey Road studios, plus all of the relevant B-sides, edits and remixes from the period, many of them available for the first time.
