Hall & Oates: Daryl Hall and John Oates

Ben Edmonds, Rolling Stone, 23 October 1975

After three albums Daryl Hall and John Oates finally have a clear-cut style. This is Hall & Oates's Wild Honey: lean, basic and more concerned with capturing the moment directly in sketchbook form than belaboring the point with involved brushwork. On this, their most consistent album, those moments provide a convincing explanation of who they are and what they can be.
