Musically, the album is an experimental hodgepodge. Right after the first verse, the song transforms into what may sound like The Red Hot Chili Peppers attempting to perform 80s new wave music.
Elemental was the last album that Tears For Fears recorded for the Phonogram/Mercury label, the company to which the band had been signed since 1981. Elemental was a success being certified as Gold status in the US and Silver in the UK, while Raoul took a more artistic direction, in April 2001 he released his first proper solo album, Tomcats Screaming Outside, under his own name. Orzabal and Smith had reconciled by that point and were working on a new Tears for Fears album together, as a songwriter, Orzabal is a two-time Ivor Novello Award winner. His first award was in 1986 for Songwriter of the Year following the release of Tears For Fears second album Songs from the Big Chair for which Orzabal wrote or co-wrote all of the tracks.
