Obviously Not Their Best {But Still Good}
Shayne M. Whitehead | Long Beach | 11/24/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Whole Oats will be much more appreciated by those who really like Hall & Oate's music. The best tracks are I'm Sorry, All Our Love, and Fall in Philadelphia. All of which were released prior to Whole Oats as demos. The first two demos are somewhat hard to find. The demo version of Fall in Philadelphia can be found on a lot of the versions of Past Times Behind.

Also decent are Goodnight and Goodmorning, South East City Window Side, Lilly {which features a false ending} and Thank You. All these listens later, "I'm Sorry" is hands down the best track. I'm amazed it was left off Atlantic's "No Goodbyes" album {which was the best of the early Hall & Oates albums by Atlantic records}.

I'd like this album a lot more if it weren't for the songs Georgie and They Needed Eachother. Both are depressing and way too metaphoric. Rereleased without them, this album would have faired better."

"This is a little know album by Hall & Oates. The album is not the typical H&O stuff from the 80's, but it's an excellent album which includes one of their greatest songs ever! 'Fall In Philadelphia' is an exceptional song which is worth the price of the CD on it's own. An interesting debut from the Philly Soul Duo."
