If you like that great early-80s sound, or just plain like good music, then get this album.

The '80s were filled with great songs that either touched me emotionally or made me want to dance. Hall and Oates, talented musicians whose rock 'n soul will permeate the airwaves forever, produced some of these songs. Their newest compilation includes the beautiful ballads "Sara Smile" and "One on One" as well as "Kiss on My List," "Private Eyes," and "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)". It also includes the one song I can listen to over and over, "Out of Touch." Fortunately, the tracks aren't cut off early like on some other greatest hits collections, and are the versions you're familiar with from the radio. As a true Hall and Oates fan, this CD is a definite must. It's more than worth the money, especially since you get 18 tracks for your listening pleasure. And you may even discover something new as you realize Hall and Oates sang a few songs you're not as familiar with.

Okay, RCA tried, (and failed once again), to release a definitive Hall and Oates "Best of" collection. I'll keep this review short: if you want the best compilation currently available, skip this one and look up the double-disc Australian import, "Starting all Over Again; Best of Hall and Oates", with a generous 36 songs, total. It contains 17 of the 18 tracks on this CD, ("Wait For Me" is missing, but who really cares?), but also features the full-length 5 minute version of "She's Gone", plus tracks from their Arista releases and a couple of songs from Daryl Hall's solo "3 Hearts" album. It's a much better buy than the CD you're looking at right now.

Someday the combined musical appreciation societies of Rhino and Buddha Records will release the domestic Daryl Hall/John Oates collection their fans long searched for.
It will include their hits in complete versions (the extended, atmospheric beauty of "She's Gone," their Temptations medley with Eddie Kendricks & David Ruffin) their last RCA & Arista hits ("Your Imagination," "So Close," "Everything Your Heart Desires") their should-have-beens ("Do What You Want, Be What You Are," "Back Together Again," "Don't Change" from 1977's "Beauty On A Back Street") and even Daryl Hall's solo hits like "Dreamtime" and "In a Philly Mood."
It could easily cover two discs and complete the unique "art & soul" picture of a sound this prolific duo created and used so well the first, most memorable years of the 1980s. For now, this is at least the most complete, if not best, Hall & Oates hits set.
"The Best of Hall & Oates" covers nearly all the duo's RCA chart hits including their impressive 1980-84 string matching soulful harmony and backbeat to frosty, stomping new wave rock ("Private Eyes," "Family Man," Fall 1984's still thrilling "Out Of Touch.") The set also restores David Foster's studio-produced version of "Wait For Me" (heard live on 1983's earlier "Rock n' Soul Vol. I") and adds 1978's poignant Top 20 "It's A Laugh."
Michael Hill's instructive essay accompanying the CD quotes Hall as comparing his and Oates' personalities to Lennon-McCartney's, calling his duo "the eighties Beatles.

Fresh for the new millenium is this greatest hits package from one of the most successful duos of the 70's and 80's. Covering the years 1976 to 1985 nearly all of Hall and Oates top 40 hits are here including the #1's "Rich Girl", "Kiss On My List", "Private Eyes", "I Can't Go For That", "Maneater", and "Out of Touch". Just about all of the tracks are the full length album versions except "It's A Laugh", and "Out of Touch" which are the single versions, "Adult Education" is the promo 12" mix(remixed by Bob Clearmountain & Nile Rodgers), and though the timing on the back of the CD lists "I Can't Go For That" as the edited version from "Rock N' Soul part 1" it is actually the album version. Because this package only includes their hits on RCA, other Hall & Oates hits like "She's Gone", "Everything Your Heart Desires", and "So Close" aren't included. But with this disc clocking in at 75 minutes, it's hard to complain too much. A strong compilation and worth picking up.

Forget my review on the previous brief CD I did of 1983's Rock 'N' Soul Part One Greatest Hits. This is even much better it adds seven songs with all eleven favorites not counting for the missing "She's Gone" which it isn't on here but includes Daryl Hall and John Oates doing a sixties cover ballad classic version of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers. Also from the Big Bam Boom album is "Out Of Touch" with "Method Of Modern Love" plus "Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid". There's also "Did It A Minute" a studio not it's live version but the original "Wait For Me" and "Family Man". I really enjoy listening to the rest of the tunes that were very popular like "Maneater", "Sara Smile", "Rich Girl", "Private Eyes" & "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)". So in my own opinion for the improvement and expanded digitally remastered eighteen tracks from it's RCA record label that they did is a pretty good job here. I would give it "Thumbs Up!". Let's see if these two guys I think should release and put out another compilation volume of more song highlights they recorded together from their 70's and 80's albums someday soon!
