[qb]sorry, but i really can't agree. i hate 'em. especially 'sowing the seeds of love' which sounds like a hideous beatles pastiche done by the rutles on a particularly bad day. intolerable, lets never speak of them again.[/qb]
Tee hee hee! I had my own crush on R.O. (and Paul Young too)! Thankfully, I moved on. I still think that the TFF albums were very good.quote:Originally posted by jenn:

Nice to see your incisive criticism comes from such great familiarity with the later works!quote:Also, they became crap when one of them left. They wrote songs about being kings of Spain or whatever.
They have a b-sides and rarities album with those songs on it Saturnine Martial & Lunatic.quote:Originally posted by stepinmyshoes:
[qb]i would recommend trying to get ahold of some of the Chair-era b-sides (conflict, when in love with a blind man, sea song, pharaohs, etc.) for any fan who hasn't heard them.[/qb]
with all respect....quote:Originally posted by Heidi in Pittsburgh:
[qb]Folks....the "Sowing the Seeds of Love" song was done as a TRIBUTE to the Beatles. It was a ground-breaking song at the time, because at the time of its release it was recorded using 188 separate digital tracks, which had never been done before. They chose to use this experiment to pay tribute to the Beatles, who were innovators in their own right. For both of those reasons, regardless of what I think of Roland Orzabal and his gaping pie-hole(!!!), the song will always have my respect.[/qb]
