EDITORS’ NOTES

The Hooters never got the credit they deserved for helping bring guitar pop back to American radio with this 1985 album. The biggest hits here (“And We Danced” and “Day by Day”) soar on poppy riffs but with pre-Americana sensibilities. There’s also a cover of Love’s overlooked great “She Comes in Colors,” which is noteworthy for its arrangement of well-crafted harmonies. Other highs include some Squeeze-like pop (“Don’t Take My Car Out Tonight”), a loss-of-innocence ballad (“Where Do the Children Go”), a reggae-fired biblical sing-along (“All You Zombies”), and a four-on-the-floor popper (“Blood from a Stone”).
