Tears for Fears: The Hurting (Mercury)

Gavin Martin, New Musical Express, 12 March 1983

THE STORY so far...Roland and Curt are two everyday morose ex Joy Division fans. Sullen, sad and ashen faced they do not feel a part of this world and the idiocy of existence – the eating, the sleeping, the waking, all for what? More eating, sleeping and waking?
