As a big fan of Sinead, then, can I just say she's legitimately insane?

I'm not a doctor, but she has major emotional issues, at the very least. You don't remember when she was missing...several times?

Yeah. Perhaps "insane" isn't the most delicate way to put it but with her disappearances, her threats of suicide, her multiple name changes and dabbling in different religions...she hasn't seemed mentally stable since the early 2000s.

Frankly never in her public life.

Exactly, I didn't want to be indelicate, I honestly have major concerns for her, especially born out of the disappearances, but "insane" is a very strong word to be using.

These collaborations are so often underwhelming, but this one really delivered. It helps that both of them have some alt-country sensibilities and a great ear for songwriting. I love how their voices play off each other, and the music itself was so good. This seems like a one-off thing, but I kind of hope they do more stuff together.

Makes me think of how much of a mixed bag David Byrne collabs can be.

tears for fears is legit one of the most under appreciated bands of the last 40 years.

Fucking hell, how they gonna do me like that with the Springsteen ballad vibes

It's a great song, and it's still not as good as Seventeen.

I don't really wanna say this, lest I go back and listen to it and realise I love it, but Love This Giant is a good example of this. I actually thought of that record when I listened to Daddy's Home.

They had their moment in time when Songs From The Big Chair was released that they were huge, all over MTV in 85-86 with the videos of Shout, Everybody Wants to Rule the World and Head Over Heels, then they quickly faded from the public consciousness over the next few years.

Songs was most definitely their apex, but The Hurting is excellent and was big in the UK, and they did come back in 1989 with The Seeds Of Love which, while perhaps not as memorable, still did very well.

Songs From The Big Chair is easily in my top 10 of all time. It’s a fantastic record.

A band from that same era that has a deeper discography and a big cult following is Simple Minds. I'm slowly trying to get into the back catalogue (the only one I owned as a kid is Once Upon a Time), and there's a lot of great songs in there if you can get past the dated instrumentation.

Simple Minds has always been a favorite of mine, Once Upon a Time was a great album.
Just saw them in October of 2018, still very good live (Only Kerr and Burchill remain from the heyday)

I love them both, but Tears for Fears, to me, is a "better" band. I think the lyricism and musicianship blows Simple Minds out of the water.

But that being said, I'd likely list them both in my top 5 "New Wave" artists (I know they aren't quite New Wave).

I saw Simple Minds a few years ago, didn’t realize Mel Gaynor had left. They’re a favorite of mine, too. I think they’re vastly underrated and under appreciated, in large due to being famous for a song that’s bigger than the band. Evidently, Jim seems to reluctantly play the song live - when I saw them, he had the audience sing it, and really he only sang to get the audience on track.

Feu! Chatterton was a frustrating listen for me. I really did like it, but it was just SO long. And another thing about music like that (maybe I'm way off base here, but it reminded me a lot of Destroyer) is the story the musician is telling. Without being able to understand the lyrics, I felt like I kept bumping up against a wall to really getting into what I was hearing. This isn't usually an issue for me with music in a language that is foreign to me, but for whatever reason I was really struggling with this one.

But overall, it's very impressive, musically especially. I'm into it.

Yeah when I saw Mel Gaynor was gone I was concerned cause he is great, but the woman they had playing was quite good.

And yeah they have a love/hate relationship with The Breakfast Club song, I've seen older interviews where Kerr sounds a bit resentful that the only song they didn't write is the one that became the big hit, but he seems to have softened his stance in recent years and knows it has to be played at every show.
