It's fair to ask what kind of solo album Daryl Hall would make after 14 years and a 'world' of changes.

Since 1997's "Can't Stop Dreaming", Hall reunited with John Oates, cut records, and toured globally. He ended a 30-year romantic and creative partnership, got married, became a stepdad, and created "Live from Daryl's House", a homemade internet TV show that went into national syndication in 2007.

In 2010, four days into these recording sessions, his producer and best friend T-Bone Wolk died suddenly of a heart attack (the album, dedicated to him, contains his final recorded performances).

"Laughing Down Crying" is instantly recognizable, yet ambitious and understandably poignant.

Hall plays loads of instruments here; he co-produced with guitarist Paul Pesco and keyboardist Greg Bieck.

These ten songs reflect the range of music Hall's recorded, been influenced by, and encountered while doing his internet show. He doesn't shy away from what made him and Oates household names in the '80s; he embraces the songcraft but doesn't indulge in nostalgia.

The title track opens with an acoustically driven folk-rock number; the melody is pure Hall. It grabs the listener instantly with its strummed acoustic guitars and laid-back backbeats.

The vocal harmonies are pure '70s rock classicism in the refrain, and in them is a tight, rich hook.

"Talking to You (Is Like Talking to Myself)" is more uptempo, its hook dead center. The dual harmony lead vocals touch on late-'80s and early-'90s pop but pushes past them.

"Lifetime of Love" is an acoustically driven, blue-eyed soul number, with horns and a backing chorus that push Hall to soar over them, and his voice just gets better with age.

A great album by Daryl Hall, love the tunes. Many new sounds but typically Daryl Hall.
Can't wait for the next Hall and Oats album and tour of the UK, whenever that will be?

Another jewel in Daryl's crown. Although we had to wait a while it was well worth it. Very different from H&O.

Polished. Relaxed. Competent, and Professional. There are no slipping of any standards in the execution and production of this album - yet another great effort from Daryl Hall. Still echoes of the former and unique Hall & Oates (track 3 - Lifetime of Love).

This is probably only ever going to be purchased by those familiar with Daryl, which is why you are reading this review! So treat yourself. Thanks to Linda for a lovely gift for me to savour.

As always, an amazing CD from Daryl Hall, and a great preview for his upcoming concert at Shepherds Bush in July. His voice just gets better and better! More, please!
