Album Reviews: "Hall and Oates" by Do it For Love (8/10)

Do it For Love


Producers: Daryl Hall, Sheppard Goodman, Kenny Gioia, T Bone Wolf, et al.

Originally released in 2003, this was sort of a comeback album for the duo. They returned with a collection of songs very reminiscent of their early R&B and singer-songwriter roots. Cuts like “Man on a Mission,” “Life’s Too Short” and the title track really pop, with acoustic energy and stellar signature hooks. “Miss DJ” and “Heartbreak Time” run the gamut from pure funk to classic soul. This foretells the same vibe Hall created on his TV show.
