    Along the Red Ledge from 1978 was out fucking standing, at least half the songs, anyway. The rest of their catalog sucks throbbing dick.

    WOW, he really looks like shit these days. Obviously jumped the shark in the looks department. Must have been hit with an ugly stick more than a few times. And what is with those fucking teeth. Is that a Photoshop joke or does his Dentist have it out for him.

    He looks a lot more like that bullshit hack producer called Bababooey.... that's how fugly the guy is now. Actually feel a little sorry for him. Thank goodness he doesn't have any kids. Could you imagine what kind of a monster his seed could produce.

    As far as their music, I can't totally disagree that some of their stuff still holds up. I still like some of their classic songs. I can't help it. I was about 14 when MTV premiered in NY. Hall and Oates were key players back in those day. They must have played Maneater every hour on the hour for at least a year.

    Some of the synth parts sound a bit dated now, but on the whole, I agree with Oates.

    Out of touch, a staple on one of my playlists.

    I'm not so sure.
    I like their music and grew up listening to them, but this new generation is not really listening to them or talking about them.

    I never really paid any attention to them, until I started watching "Live At Darryl's House". After watching that, I love his voice and talent. :wub: I'll see if I can find those songs/albums you all mentioned in this thread and add them to my playlist. :party:
