This album is the first greatest hits collection by the British band Tears for Fears, and was released in 1992. It was released with a compilation video (later issued on DVD). The album contains all the Top 20 hits up to that point released in the UK and internationally (except "Everybody Wants To Run The World"), and one new single, "Laid So Low (Tears Roll Down)", which also made the Top 20 in the UK (peaking at #17), and in several other European countries (France, Italy, etc.).
The album originally peaked at #2 in the UK upon its release, but returned to the UK Top 10 (#6) in 2004 for several weeks following the success of Gary Jules' cover version of "Mad World".
A compilation video under the same title was also released in 1992, and was later issued on DVD.
The album itself was reissued in 2005 with a bonus disc containing various remixes.
Tears Roll Down (Greatest Hits 82-92) was reissued in 2005 with bonus disc:
note: 'Tears Roll Down' is labeled as 'Laid So Low (US Dance Mix)', but is actually the original 1989 B-side version of the song.
