Something of a transitional album, 1979's X-STATIC finds Daryl Hall and John Oates beginning to feel their way toward a marriage of their blue-eyed Philly soul roots with a downtown, avant-garde sensibility--the sort of canny commercial synthesis they would eventually refine on VOICES and much of their later '80s output.
Highlights include the hit single "Wait For Me," which could be vintage '70s Todd Rundgren, and the should-have-been-a-hit single "Woman Comes and Goes," which features some gorgeous Beach Boys style harmonies. "Intravino," a very funny ode to conspicuous consumption, has the most overtly proto-new wave feel of anything on the album.
