Reseña de álbum

Before the release of this successful 1979 album, Holmes released four albums that failed to capture him at his best. Shortly before this, Holmes made his mark as songwriter. He penned the kitschy cannibalism tale "Timothy" for the Buoys. From his 1976 effort Singles came "The Last of the Romantics" which was covered to great effect by Engelbert Humperdinck. Partners in Crime finds Holmes more focused with pop savvy and a great batch of songs. The effort's biggest hit, the ingratiating "Escape" (The Pina Colada Song)," though skilled, is cutesy enough to make some people's eyes roll. Despite the nature of that track, Holmes was also willing to tackle more interesting issues. With the slightly disco-fied title track, he deftly examines the male/female dynamic as business deal. Throughout the song, Holmes is having a lot of fun with every salacious detail. "Nearsighted" has him going the power pop route and all but wringing tears out of seeing "slightly out of focus." As Partners in Crime goes along, what becomes striking is some of the tracks' subtle use of R&B flourishes. "Him" depicts Holmes as the cuckold and has a beautiful string arrangement, a great hook, and strong, vivid lyrics. The album's best ballad, "The People That You Never Get to Love" has Holmes again giving a warm and confident vocal and is poignant rather than weepy. Although there are a few waste cuts, on the whole Partners in Crime is a thought-provoking and polished album.

Him

I love that track, "Him"! That cut is one of the many songs that personifies the late 70's! The string arrangements are awesome!

WHY THE WHOLE ALBUM???

MR HOLMES IS RATED 5-STAR...BUT WHY DO WE HAVE TO PURCHASE THE WHOLE ALBUM IF WE ONLY WANT A SONG OR TWO? "ESCAPE" & "HIM" ARE THE TOPNOTCH HITTERS, BUT IT'LL BE GREAT IF iTUNES COULD COME OUT WITH ONE MORE CLASSIC RUPERT HOLMES, AND THAT'S "TERMINAL"....

Come on iTunes...give customers a break.

I have been searching for this song "Him" for a while, now that you've finally released it... you want us to pay for the entire album, I mean, I like Rupert Holmes but....I don't know, Im not feeling like purchasing the whole CD for a single tune ( those days were supposed to be gone with you in the music industry guys; Am I wrong? )
