Hip-O’s excellent two-disc Tears for Fears Gold collection boasts 24 tracks from the veteran English duo. All of the obvious hits (“Shout,” “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” “Head Over Heels,” “Mad World,” and “Sowing the Seeds of Love”) are here, but it’s the inclusion of tracks from their woefully overlooked 2004 comeback album, Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, that warrants a high rating.Read More

Brandon Flowers’ solo debut, 2010’s Flamingo, seemed to make the case that the line between a Killers album and a Flowers album was blurry at best. Largely a continuation of the anthemic Springsteen-influenced sound of the Killers’ 2006 effort Sam’s Town, Flamingo also revealed Flowers’ inclination toward glossy, synth-heavy, ’80s adult-contemporary productions. For his sophomore solo outing, 2015’s The Desired Effect, the line between the man and his band begins to sharpen. Produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (Madonna, Vampire Weekend, HAIM), the album finally finds Flowers achieving anRead More
