    just got the new greatest hits album - the new songs are great - different than the usual but great nonetheless.

    Count me as a fan. I still remember hearing "Pale Shelter" and "Mad World" on the radio before I even knew who the band was like it was yesterday.

    If there are new songs on the new Greatest Hits album, I will check them out for sure. Especially if Curt Smith back in the band.

    Not so much, in the UK they were kind of lumped in with the teeny bands like Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet. So a serious teenage music fan like myself listening to The Smiths and Echo and The Bunneymen did not approve. :laugh:

    Never, ever heard them referred to as 'TFF'?

    Is SFTBC the best record of the 80s?

    Close!

    Big fan. Love those early synth pop singles and the singles from SFTBC. Wish they were more prolific

    The Seeds of Love has to be one of the best things ever recorded.

    I have it on vinyl. It's a great listen. Wish they'd had room for "Secret World" and "Goodnight Song."

    That's a really good album; the better of the two without Curt Smith, I think.

    Absolutely a great group. The Hurting and Songs from the Big Chair were soundtracks to my college days.

  21. Big, big fan! I think Roland Orzabal is a brilliant writer and arranger/producer.

    Seeds of love was always - and still is - in my all-time top3. The other two in that list sometimes change. But SoL was always there.

    Can't wait for the Steven Wilson 5.1 Mix.

    Got a Seeds of Love vinyl two years ago and that started TFF for me (although I like Songs from the Big Chair even more :) )
    Still have to listen to The Hurting sometime
