Hall and Oates, "H20" / 1982 Review by: Brian Foster
This album continued Daryl Hall & John Oates foray into synth-driven melodic pop, with big results. The strongest and most remembered track on the CD unquestionably is "Maneater," with its pulsating bass line and lyrics about a woman on the make. Other hits were the ballad hit "One On One" and "Family Man," another tune in the man-as-victim vein. If you can ever find the dance remix singles to "One On One" and "Family Man," pick those up for their alternate extended versions. Overall, H2O is a great bridge between "Private Eyes" and "Big Bam Boom" (which see)....

8 out of 10.
