I purchased the first solo album which I liked.
John has lived in Daryl's song writing shadow far too long. But not any longer!
In this second release his work is wonderful.
The songs are rich in meaning and strong in the melody.
I cannot pass this opportunity to say that John has endured the years better than Daryl.
In the 'Live at the Troubadoor' dvd I didnt like the obvious put down of John by Daryl in the performance. As professional performers their own feelings for each other should always be kept for the back stage area.
Nevertheless I would recommend this cd to anyone who has admired John over his outstanding career.

Another mainly acoustic offering by half of the best duo in music. This album, recorded in Nashville, has a decidedly rock-bluesy feel to it and an occasional steel guitar weaving which really makes me think John would make some dynamite country music. (Hey, if the Osmond Brothers did it)...

Best songs are "1000 Miles of Life" and "The Good Son". John also re-makes 1990's "Change of Season" from the title track of that Hall & Oates album.

Finally, a great solo album from John Oates. In this his sophomore attempt he has proven that he can sing with the best of the,and does on this album. Every song is a masterpiece. "Spinning Down" is my personal favorite. It hasn't been removed from my car CD player yet!! Give it a listen.

As usual, any project undertaken by John Oates or Daryl Hall does not disappoint. Album is wonderful- easy to listen to again and again. Mellow sounds blend together yet cover a myriad of emotion.
Highly recommend as this is much different than John's last solo album.
I can't wait to see what is next!

I am a great fan of H&O, but I also love their solo work. John Oates writes with depth and passion, and this is absolutely top notch. Circle of Three is my favorite. Also, loved getting to hear T-Bone again!

I was a phan of Phunk Shui and I also bought the Solo album with the concert footage which I enjoy. When I first heard 'Phunk' it took a couple plays for me to appreciate the effort and his newest effort in '1000 miles' was the same. It took at least three plays for me to appreciate some of the efforts including 'Ghost Town' but when I caught on it's been a mainstay of my MP3 listening. I don't want to go into detail but it's a very well made collection of music and worth every penny. Why not five stars? Well, I reserve 5 stars for those extra special efforts that come along only once in a blue moon.

If you enjoyed the music of Oates before...you'll enjoy this effort even though it's certainly different from 'Phunk'. It's quality from start to finish.

It is no wonder John is in the Hall of Fame for songwriting; the lyrics hit deep into your soul! This CD is very unique in that it has an adult contemporary theme with county, Christian rock, and easy listening tempos. From reading the reviews and listening to friends after they hear the music, it is apparant that the CD offers many favorites. My favorites are Ghost Town, Change of Season, Sometimes, Circle of Three, and Sending me Angels!
