Here Come the Tears is the only album by The Tears, released on 6 June 2005 on Independiente Records.

Reception

The album proved a successful comeback for Bernard Butler and Brett Anderson as the album was praised by critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has an average score of 74 out of 100, which indicates "generally favourable reviews" based on 17 reviews.[3] The album charted at number 15 in the UK.[13]

The NME were favourable, calling it, "The best album you'll hear this year, by a mile".[8] Some reviewers felt that the album sounded like later Suede material. Stephen Thomas Erlewine noted that, "Here Come the Tears is what Coming Up would have been if Butler had stuck around."[1] Dave Simpson of The Guardian said it "isn't that far from the records Suede made without [Butler]."[6]Spin wrote: "if this reunion... isn't a revelation, it still has its thrills, mostly via Butler's lush, breath taking backdrops."[11] Other reviews, however were more mixed, such as Uncut, who wrote that "It's not a disaster, by any means.... It's just that, over 13 songs, it's abundantly clear that whatever the potency of this partnership, there's an old lack of range."[3]

Andrew Womack, of online magazine The Morning News placed Here Come the Tears at number 8 in its list of the top 10 albums of 2005.[14]

The album's artwork is an image called "Guests 1998" by Christopher Bucklow.
