Avis sur l’album

Big Bam Boom is the last of the big Hall & Oates albums, the one that closed their period of greatest commercial success and artistic achievement. Parting from Neil Kernon, their engineer/co-producer for Voices, Private Eyes, and H20, the duo hired Bob Clearmountain as a co-producer and engineer, bringing in hip-hop pioneer Arthur Baker for additional mixing and production, and the change behind the boards is evident on the record. As the title none too subtly implies, this is a bigger, noisier record than its predecessors, with its rhythms smacking around in an echo chamber and each track built on layers of synthesizers and studio effects. Hall & Oates' crack touring band are credited in the liner notes as playing on each track, but this is one of the first mainstream records of the '80s records where it sounds as everything was sequenced and run through a computer — the sound that came to define the latter half of the decade. There's undeniably interesting things going on in the mix on each of the nine tracks — frankly, there's too much going on, and the production weighs down many of the songs on this sprawling, diffuse album; it also obscures the dark undercurrent to many of the tunes, several of which seem to foreshadow the duo's long hiatus following this record. Some songs cut through on the strength of their craft, and these are usually the singles: the excellent "Out of Touch," which rivals anything on Private Eyes or Voices; the silly yet engaging "Method of Modern Love"; the haunting "Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid," easily the best ballad on the record; then, the exception to the rule, the hard-rocking "Bank on Your Love," which is one time the production works in the favor of the song, adding muscle instead of diluting its impact. These songs, matched with the ambition of the rest of the record, makes Big Bam Boom an interesting, worthwhile listen, but coming after a trio of records that had very few flaws, it feels like a disappointment, and it was no great surprise that Hall & Oates took a lengthy break a year or so after its release. [In 2004, RCA/BMG Heritage reissued Big Bam Boom in a remastered version with four bonus tracks — 12" mixes of "Out of Touch," "Method of Modern Love," "Possession Obsession," and "Dance on Your Knees" — and good liner notes by Ken Sharp.]

Leur meilleur album...

Pour ma part je pense que ceci est le meilleur album de Daryl et John. Il date de 1984 et il n'a pas mal vieilli contrairement à des artistes comme duran duran etc.... La production est très soignée ( Bob Clearmountain oblige !) et cela se ressent sur la qualité des morceaux, très "année 80" avec beaucoup de synthés et de boîtes à rythme. C'est pratiquement un "best of" à lui tout seul cet album: L'intro déjantée et péchu "Dance On your Knees" donne le ton et sert de transition à l'excellent "Out of Touch" ( populaire pour les joueurs de GTA ), on enchaîne avec le délirant et ensoleillé "Method Of Modern Love". "Bank of Your Love" est très orienté Rock alors que "Some Things are better left Unsaid" se la joue plutot dark et mélancolique pour ne retenir que les meilleurs.
Enfin tout se clôture magistralement par le superbe "Possession Obsession", une ballade slow rock de toute beauté.
Pour les amateurs du genre si vous connaissez pas n'hésitez pas c'est album est un bijou.

From their first hit in 1974 through their heyday in the '80s, Daryl Hall and John Oates' smooth, catchy take on Philly soul brought them enormous commercial success — including six number one singles and six platinum albums. Hall & Oates' music was remarkably well constructed and produced; at their best, their songs were filled with strong hooks and melodies...
