Depending on your perspective, this is either the first or second album where Hall and Oates finally figured out how to combine their Philly soul roots with their folky singer/songwriter influences in a way that sounded more or less organic. What's not in question, however, is that the album's best track, "Sara Smile," is an all-but-perfect soul ballad, ravishingly sung and played.
Most of the rest of the album is very nearly as good. An early clue to the new direction: "Gino the Manager" (written about future ex-husband of Mariah Carey and Sony CEO Tommy Mottola) which anticipates the duo's early '80s new wave work.
