Editors’ Notes

Released in late 1984, Big Bam Boom, the Philly duo’s 12th studio album; it marked the end of a pop streak that began in the mid-‘70s and really took off in 1980. “Out of Touch” was Hall & Oates' final No. 1 Top 40 hit, while “Method of Modern Love” landed at No. 5. The album features the bright, synthetic, and danceable sounds that artists from David Bowie to Steve Winwood would also ride to success in the '80s. The remastered edition of this album includes the 12” extended mix versions of “Out of Touch,” “Method of Modern Love,” “Possession Obsession,” and “Dance on Your Knees,” which make the use of producer Bob Clearmountain and hip-hop mixer extraordinaire Arthur Baker all the more pronounced. As the album title implies and the album cover states, this is a loud, garish album where taste is often overlooked in favor of getting a crazy, hyped sound. “Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid” survives the heavily sequenced arrangement, while “All American Girl” is so busy that it’s exhausting trying to keep up.

Hall & Oates' music was remarkably well constructed and produced; at their best, their songs were filled with strong hooks and melodies that adhered to soul traditions without being a slave to them, incorporating elements of new wave and hard rock. Daryl Hall began performing...
