The band's first full trio recording without guests since Echoes in a Shallow Bay, Tears has the group in a slight holding pattern, though not without some songs of merit. The title track has good performances from Guthrie and Raymonde both on their instruments, the former creating one of his trademark crystalline feedback washes for the chorus, as Fraser's voice swoops and swirls throughout. "Those Eyes, That Mouth" is the definite winner of the bunch, with Fraser's work the key factor. Her up-and-down yelps and cries on the verses establish the basic feelings, while her sudden shift to a more soothing wash of exultance on the chorus is striking, accentuated by the equally surging music as the song fades up and out. "Sigh's Smile of Farewell" is close to being run-of-the-mill for the Twins, but it's still good stuff, Guthrie's guitar sounding like bells and Fraser in good voice as ever. "Orange Appled" concludes the proceedings with an understated but strong rhythm punch and a great vocal/chime combination on the chorus from Fraser and Guthrie.
