Hall and Oates follow-up to their album Voices, Private Eyes takes on more of that pop-feel found on Voices with Kiss on My List, throw in some synthisizer for good measure, and you've got a pretty good album. The title track definitely is the biggest hit on here, with some very catchy lyrics and good vocals from Hall. Other notable tracks here are I Can't Go for That, Did it in a Minute, Head Above Water, and Looking for a good sign. I can't help but feel on the album that Side A is better than Side B, Side B seems to take on a more darker feel, while Side A sounds very light-hearted.

But this is still a good album, worth a listen, and found very cheaply. Don't hesitate to pick it up.
