To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Tears for Fears’ debut album, The Hurting, it's been reissued in three different editions. All editions include a carefully remastered version of the album, overseen by band leaders Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith at London's Abbey Road Studios. The deluxe edition includes alternate versions of half of the album (largely recorded at keyboardist Ian Stanley’s eight-track studio), b-sides, and remixes. The super-deluxe edition includes all of the above and several live Peel Session radio performances that show Tears for Fears' competency in the live arena. Each edition features the sound of a unique young band coming together to address the heavy issues of transition. In this case, it's from childhood to adulthood, as experienced by Orzabal through the work of Arthur Janov (whose studies also gave the band its name). The group—for which Orzabal and Smith were the public faces—was keenly aware that a new decade was dawning, and it translated its songs from acoustic guitar to the world of drum machines and synth patches.
