Daryl Hall & John Oates, Voices (1980)
Just a great run of singles here – but also some weird folly-stuff too. Oddly a cover of You’ve Lost That Lovin Feeling (which no one really needs) was very popular. And yet their own Everytime You Go Away had to wait to be covered to really be a hit. Strange. Loads of gems here though – a great run of singles, including a couple of classic H&O gems, Kiss On My List and You Make My Dreams. The cheese is well on its way but the soul and R’n’B feels are still there too. And the songwriting is great. Hall & Oates. Fucking legends.
