Daryl & John's re-mastered 1980 initial self-produced Voices album is mainly a labor of packaging in this 2004 release.

The new features are extensive liner notes (which are well-written save for the tired 'blue-eyed soul' moniker that Ken Sharp felt necessary to include). The notes feature recent interviews with Daryl Hall & John Oates about the making of the songs on the album.

Some ads may say this album has 'Extra Tracks' when in fact, there aren't any. (If you want that remix of Every Time You Go Away, I recommend the 12-Inch Collection (Volume One). The remix of Kiss On My List is on the 12-Inch Collection(Volume Two). Therefore, if you already have this album on CD, keep it and get the two 12-Inch Collections.

Best tracks: "How Does It Feel To Be Back, Kiss On My List, Gotta Lotta Nerve (Perfect-Perfect), You Make My Dreams, Diddy Doo Wop (I Hear The Voices).

Buyer beware: I found out that "Hard To Be In Love With You" has the first second of the intro edited out. Wish I knew why, but if you're a purist, I suggest buying a different CD issue of this album. The quality is just as good.

I have the originally issued CD (from the early 90's or whenever) of "Voices" and the mastering is ATROCIOUS (like many of those early CD's).

I have it on my playlist with a bunch of other albums, and you have to crank the volume way up for any of those tracks since they're so quiet and tinny sounding. Editing off Daryl's exclamation at the beginning of "Hard To Be In Love With You" makes no sense, but it doesn't bother me that much. I'd much rather have a CD that sounds good..

Now if only someone could reissue "Whole Oats" and "Abandoned Luncheonette"..

This is where Daryl Hall and John Oates found their groove. This is the one on which the classic pop/soul sound that made Daryl Hall & John Oates Big 80s video-era mega-stars.

Instead of trying to make grand statements, the boys just concentrated on having fun. And the hits are huge fun. "Kiss on My List," with a surprisingly cynical undercurrent, is pure summer fun. (Daryl Hall always said it was an "anti-love" love song, being that "your kiss" was merely on a list, and "one," apparently among others, of the "best things in life.) "You Make My Dreams" is another teleportation device, taking you back to 1981, and Izod shirts, topsiders with no socks, and all the other trappings of the music era immediately before the breaking of MTV.

What sets "Voices" apart from the Hall & Oates predecessor LPs is the quality of the album tracks. Most of the album tracks are equal to the hits is catchiness and sing-along-i-ness (if that's a word). The percussion-driven "Hard to Be in Love with You" is a great mix of doo-wop harmony set to a jerky new wave-flavored beat. "Gotta Lotta Nerve (Perfect Perfect)" is more doo-wop, possibly veering into the world-beat African percussion that was just becoming popular with Talking Heads ("I Zimbra") and Peter Gabriel ("Biko"). "United State" is built around clever wordplay which hold up for the 3:09 playing time. And, of course, the gospel-flavored "Everytime You Go Away" even became a hit when it was whitened up by Paul Young.

Why this works is because Hall & Oates ended two unfortunate tendencies that damaged their 1970s works. They stopped trying to make "grand statements" (see, e.g., "It's A Laugh," off "Along the Red Ledge," or "Do What You Want Be What You Are," off "Bigger Than Both of Us") with their pop tunes.

After a series of well received critically but commercially successful albums, Daryl Hall and John Oates took matters into their own hands. "Voices" was to be the duo's first effort at self production, figuring if anyone knew what their sound should be like, it was them. It was a gamble that paid off in a big, big way.

Hall and Oates stripped the sound down to an almost new-wave bare-bones structure. Gone where the super-lush soul or the odd Zepplin-esque rock (from "Beauty on a Backstreet") to a sound that could easily be reproduced live. It refocused attention on the always sharp harmonies and Hall's soaring vocals. More than before, Hall was taking center stage, which made an amazing take on Paul Young's "Every Time You Go Away" just before Young had his own hit version.

Showcasing the duo came via touching on the Righteous Brothers "You've Lost That Loving Feeling," one of the four hits "Voices" spun off after a long dry spell. In fact, Hall and Oates struck a writing groove here that continued for almost a decade, as "Voices" knocked off the smashes "Kiss On My List," "How Does It Feel To Be Back" and "You Make My Dreams." Even with a few filler tunes in the middle ("Big Kids," "Africa"), the cream covered any weaknesses.

Hall and Oates effectively reclaimed their career with the album, with followups soon to arrive in the form of "H2O" and "Private Eyes." But it was "Voices" that brought them back to the center stage, and holds up nicely 30 years on.
