Tear of Thought is the second studio album released by the Australianrock bandThe Screaming Jets. The album was released in November 1992 and peaked at number 3 in June 1994. Singles that were taken off this album were Shivers/Starting Out (AUS#19-Feb 93), Helping Hand (AUS#25-May 94), Tunnel (AUS#39-Aug. 94).
Jonathan Lewis of AllMusic gave the album 3 out 5 saying; "The Screaming Jets returned in 1992 with their second full-length album. Tear of Thought established them as stars rather than just another pub rock band. Musically, the disc continues in the vein of hard rock established by their debut, although this time the band experiments with some new musical direction, including the jazz-influenced "Helping Hand" and a faithful cover of the Boys Next Door classic, "Shivers." With enough raw power to delight fans and enough experimentation to keep critics happy, Tear of Thought was an enjoyable, but ultimately disposable, example of Australian hard rock music."
