  2. As for 90s solo-Roland TFF, there is probably a brilliant album's worth of stuff from Elemental and Raoul.

    From the Elemental album, I love the title cut (pure energy), Break It Down, Fish Out Of Water and probably a couple of others (the B-sides from this era are often better than the LP cuts). And then from Raoul I like the overwraught title song (a flop single), Secrets, God's Mistake and again a handful of others. Some of it descends into noisy Alanis-esque alt.pop/rock.
     
  3. Raoul title track was a great late discovery for me when I got the Rule the World greatest hits.
     
  4. Raoul and God's Mistake are top 20 Tears for Fears for me. I especially love the lyric: "He said, "God does not play dice". Yet if he's everywhere, he's in casinos with aces to spare" in God's Mistake.

  5. So let me suggest a few interim songs if not albums. Here goes:

    a. Break it down again
    b. Goodnight song
    c. Bullet for Brains - Roland Orzabal solo from the "Tomcats screaming outside" album
    d. Secret World
    e. I love you but I'm lost

    I hope this helps!

  6. There is a second pressing of The Tipping Point Blu Ray - https://superdeluxeedition.com/news...for-fears-the-tipping-point-on-blu-ray-audio/

    I didn't ordered the first edition but I did buy the limited CD from SDE shop which was £15.00 plus £5.00 postage.
    Total £20.00 or €24.05

    In addition, I paid the following on delivery:
    Irish VAT (23%) – €5.53
    Handing fee – €3.50
    Total – €9.03

    Someone on the SDE comments page rightfully points out that UK VAT is not deducted for non-UK customers even though the SDE shop is not obliged to charge it for export sales. That means non-UK customers pay two lots of VAT.

    Paul Sinclair's response is
    "All I will say is that I didn’t vote for Brexit. Costs for servicing EU customers are higher than UK customers."
    -
    which is presumably already reflected in the higher postage charges so.......

  7. Not great. You would think SDE would simply adjust the postage charges for the EU to reflect that, even though their system might not be able to automatically deduct the VAT during checkout.

    More paperwork for them I guess.

  8. Other sites can manage it (Amazon UK, Network DVD)

    The disclaimer on the site says:
    "EU SHIPPING NOTES: If you are ordering from the EU please be aware that that goods may be subject to import VAT when they arrive from the UK. The prices the SDE shop charge you do not include VAT"

    Which is somewhat disingenuous as the price does include UK VAT.
    Proof: I have tried ordering from SDE with a UK address and the item cost (excluding postage) is the same as a non-UK address. That's the crux of the problem.

    Whereas if I order from Amazon UK and the price is say £17.31, here is what happens:
    Amazon deduct UK VAT (20%) and add on Irish VAT (23%) so I pay £17.74.
    And no more extra charges on delivery as the VAT issue is already dealt with.
