14 Songs, 54 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This mid-career greatest-hits collection is a totem to Hall and Oates' pop-music supremacy. Song after song demonstrates their knack for pairing intricate arrangements—Hall's smooth, soulful vocals, Oates' restrained though occasionally wild guitars, layers of gleaming synths and booming electronic drums—with irresistible songwriting. The swooning "Kiss On My List" and the bouncy "You Make My Dreams" as well as the darker, sexed-up "Maneater" and the funky "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)" proved the duo had the range to own a decade of radio.
