This album takes a more rock-oriented approach, similar to War Babies, but more streamlined and polished.
Both Daryl Hall and John Oates claim to hate this album, and many of Hall and Oates' most comprehensive compilations, such as The Essential Daryl Hall & John Oates (originally released as Ultimate Daryl Hall + John Oates) and the 2009 box set, Do What You Want, Be What You Are: The Music of Hall and Oates, do not include any songs from this album (although the "3.0" edition of The Essential does contain the album's sole charting single, "Why Do Lovers Break Each Other's Hearts?" as a bonus track).

Famous quotes containing the words street and/or beauty:
“Outside America I should hardly be believed if I told how simply, in my experience, Dover Street merged into the Back Bay.”
—Mary Antin (18811949)
“... the selfishness that is bred of great success is our shame. We have subdued the wilderness and made it ours. We have conquered the earth and the richness thereof. We have indelibly stamped upon its face the seal of our dominating will. Now, unlike Alexander sighing for more worlds to conquer, we should address ourselves to adding beauty to that glory and grandeur.”
—Alice Foote MacDougall (18671945)
