Thanks primarily to Turntable Kitchen and their Sounds Delicious series, I own my fair share of cover albums. Brothertiger playing the Tears for Fears classic Songs From The Big Chair has to be my favorite. It's no suprise that Roland Orzabal from Tears For Fears admits that the cover of "Mother's Talk" found on this album is better than the original. Brothertiger original compositions have so much in common with the songs from the record being covered. When the remakes sound so straight, it's not shocking. If you didn't grow up in the eighties, you would be forgiven for thinking this is just another Brothertiger album.
"Everybody Wants To Rule The World" is a standout track here, but you probably didn't need me to tell you that to guess. After all, it was already a hit.
