Hall and Oates' (sort of) New Wave album, VOICES may not be a timeless classic but it's certainly one of the best pop albums of the early '80s, with nearly every song a tuneful, concise, well-crafted gem. In retrospect, the album's first hit, a cover of the Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling," is actually somewhat misrepresentative; nothing else here is as retro or bombastic. More typical is the opening "How Does It Feel," a big sounding yet spare piece of twelve-string folk rock by way of the REVOLVER-era Beatles. There's also the ebullient pop soul of "Kiss on My List" and the cleverly self-referential neo-'50s street corner harmonizing of "Diddy Doo Wop (I Hear the Voices)."
