Missing in action until now 22 Nov. 2000
By Michael Paulsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Missing Persons' 2nd album, RHYME & REASON, showed the band maturing, demonstrating that their talent was genuine and not all about image. The singles "Give" and "Right Now" have been available on the previously released BEST OF, but RHYME got poor coverage on this compilation. 3 of their greatest songs, the gentle "Surrender Your Heart", the longing "Waiting for a Million Years" and the joyous "If Only For a Moment", are now finally available on CD! Songs like "Clandestine People" and "Racing Against Time" are a bit dispensable, but the rest is solid. 6 bonus tracks are included, featuring earlier unreleased live and studio recordings, including the rare "Action Reaction".

A Perfect Album...long "missing" but happily reissued! 11 Jan. 2001
By "jiffy" jim link - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I remember listening to this album everyday on my Walkman while traveling to work on the bus to NYC for months on end when it 1st came out. I loved it from 1st listen. I think everyone can find at least 8 of the original 10 album tracks they will really find appealing. This is a sonic masterpiece of an album. It shouldn't be dismissed as just a great New Wave album...it's a great album period. At times uptempo (The Closer That You Get...fantastic opener), other times, pensive (Waiting for a Million Years). The final track (If Only For The Moment) is OUTSTANDING. Thank goodness for this long overdue re-issue.

RHYME AND REASON... The best there ever was! 15 April 2001
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was brought to tears thinking of the lovely song "Surrender Your Heart" from this classic release. A few years ago, I underwent an intense letter writting campaing, asking people to put this on CD. Imagine my surprise when (after giving up) I found it. This was Missing Persons finest hour, and the best full length in the all too brief history of new wave. This genre is so disrespected now, but for those of us who grew up in it, we recognize that new wave held in it's grasp the infinite beauty of life and youth. It was music to celebrate and feel life. Nothing since has come close. Techno has been good, but nobody has harnessed the pure bliss of young emotion like new wave artists. This release is a synth and guitarist's dream. It's evident that great thought was put into production, programming and developing an overall sound. I'm so happy that I finally got to see Missing Persons, just 2 years ago in my own hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Dale is as cute as ever! Now I'll own a timeless CD! I invite all fans to email me!

ALAS... 25 Nov. 2000
By Bart Cabezas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
...what do you know? In my review re SPRING SESSION M, I made mention of how i find it sad that Capitol Records did not release this album on CD Format. I WANT TO TAKE IT BACK AND THANK CAPITOL RECORDS...this time ;-)...on re-releasing this album on disc format via One-Way Records. This and Color in Your Life...has been out accordingly since 21 November 2000...and i have yet to grab my copies of them. NOW...while a lot of Missing Persons' fans would blabber about Spring Session M...I personally think that Rhyme & Reason is their artistic masterpiece. You have to think that music-wise, this will never be a let-down since we are talking here of Zappa blokes. If ur after vocals, then Dale's unique hiccup-y deliveries would definitely distinguish them from the rest. This is an album which needs intent listening as the tracks here don't kick you the first time but in my case...THEY DID. Standout cuts are THE CLOSER THAT YOU GET, GIVE, RIGHT NOW, SURRENDER YOUR HEART, CLANDESTINE PEOPLE and one big surprise is the last track, IF ONLY FOR THE MOMENT. I can still vividly recall the MTVs that go with the songs in this album, quite ahead of their time during the 80s and i should say were quite "classy" for the genre. But when members of a band decide on different musical directions, that will definitely spell the end of a good band and a new life for the members, which is what happened to Missing Persons. Finally, I can just hold on to my evidence of good music (their albums) from a band i was once so fond of and and will forever be a part of my "personal discography". Forgive me for being a bit mellow dramatic (corny?) on this but they just happen to be a part of my growing 80s life...the musically colourful decade. It won't hurt to step back in time once in a while and enjoy MISSING PERSONS at their best.

Masterpiece 22 Aug. 2006
By Douglas Glenn Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The other 'R & R' reviews posted here are eloquent in their praise, and I can only concur... However, I would like to emphasize that, indeed, for its time, this album was uncommonly unique, so much so that perhaps only the artistically inclined or avant-garde seemed to 'get it.' Everything about this album was to be different from Spring Session M, MP's debut effort. From the extraordinary Helmut Netwon photography (particulary Dale Bozzio's mesmerizing cover portrait) to the elegant liner notes, through to the video collaborations with Simon Milne, Peter Heathe and legendary pop artist Peter Max -- Rhyme is a masterpiece, ahead of its time and soaring with grand compositions that deserve repeat plays, again and again. A must buy, no doubt about it.
