CD Review & Giveaway: Daryl Hall - Laughing Down Crying

I recently received a copy of Daryl Hall's new CD, Laughing Down Crying to review.


Daryl Hall - one half of the legendary Hall & Oates - recently released his fifth solo CD, Laughing Down Crying - his first in 14 years. (I remember my dad owning 8 tracks from Hall & Oates. LOL Man I feel old!) The music on the CD has a lot of the old music vibe from him, while tossing in enough of a new vibe that there's no second guessing that this is new material. Sadly, this CD marks the last time Daryl Hall was able to collaborate with the legendary T-Bone Wolk, whom he has worked with for 30 years.

Here is the track listing:

1. "Laughing Down Crying"
2. "Talking To You (Is Like Talking To Myself)"
3. "Lifetime Of Love"
4. "Eyes For You (Ain't No Doubt About It)"
5. "Save Me"
6. "Message To Ya"
7. "Wrong Side Of History"
8. "Get Out Of The Way"
9. "Crash & Burn"
10. "Problem With You"

I really loved the title track "Laughing Down Crying" - it definitely was my favorite off the CD, although I enjoyed all of the songs on it. If you're a fan of the old guard - and love that bluesy, folksy house rock - you'll enjoy this CD.

You can follow Daryl Hall over on Facebook or follow him over on Twitter.

Daryl Hall Laughing Down Crying is available on CD and via MP3 download. The suggested price is $9.99, and you can snag it at sites like Amazon and iTunes.
