War Babies is nearly entirely misunderstood, and perhaps rightly so. War Babies was given a guiding hand by Todd Rundgren, at a time when everything Todd touched sounded just like Todd Rundgren, and while that may have given Hall & Oates some valued credentials, it certainly made for a confusing album.If nothing else, War Babies is entirely one of the most intriguing and enigmatic albums of all time, when once the great sonic musical maestro stepped in, he nearly shoved Daryl and John out (though perhaps they willingly stepped aside), reassembling nearly all of the guitar work, taking over the responsibilities of lead guitar, and went so far as to bring in bandmates John Seigler and Jon Wilcox of Todd’s band Utopia to bring forth the unclear yet ever present aspects of psychic prog-rock pop with a bit of funk … though yes, the entire adventure is far closer to progressive rock. War Babies had little or nothing to do with the wonderful Abandoned Luncheonette, nor could it even be considered a step into the future from that album. War Babies was out of the box completely different, as if it had materialized from out of nowhere, from out of thin air, leaving listeners perplexed dazed and confused.To this day I have difficulty considering whether this was a Rundgren creation, that of Hall & Oates, or merely a script Todd adopted, amended, reshaped and allowed Hall & Oates to have walk-on parts. Be that as if may, War Babies was the first charted album from the duo, reaching #86 in the fall of 1974, a far cry from the blue-eyed soul fashioned by Daryl and John, possessing limited if any dynamic range, reminding me of something recorded inside of a coffee can, or perhaps that Whole Oats can imaged on their first album cover.With War Babies sounding like a matinee version of Rundgren’s classic A Wizard A True Star, I fear I’m suggesting that this was a road Daryl Hall did not want to venture down, while nothing could be further from the truth, as the concept and production were wholeheartedly embraced by him, though not so much by John, who was still deeply rooted and devoted to their Philly soul sound. A quick look at the tracking will confirm this, where seven of the ten songs that make up the album are credited to Hall alone. There were many things to come out of the crazy War Babies sessions, though none more relevant and long lasting as the deconstruction and reconstruction of their harmonies, harmonies that had once been thought of as existing in two places, as say The Righteous Brother had done. Yet here, John and Daryl managed to assemble that into three sections, one each for Daryl and John, and another for the two of them together, a feat that would define their sound for all time.Defining as it may have been, War Babies bombed, and still today it’s seen as an anomaly of sorts that got them booted from Atlantic Records, leaving them to resurface on RCA with an eponymous album in 1975, a record that has been dubbed The Silver Album, featuring a cover with a metallic hue, and artwork right out of Ziggy Stardust, an androgynous daydream portrait of the pair created by Mick Jagger’s makeup artist, where the boys look totally glam, and simply too divine.As to the record itself, it’s divided into two sections, embracing absolutely nothing that’s commercially viable, pure art for art’s sake, a Jackson Pollack schizoid enigma of self-destruction that given the right environment and within the right atmosphere, can somehow manage to work.Or perhaps more simply put: Just because the album sounds conflicted doesn’t mean it’s not good.*** The Fun Facts: As to the album’s title, War Babies denotes a child born durning wartime, especially one fathered by a serviceman. This would certainly include Daryl, who was born in 1946 at the tail end of WW2, with John arriving in 1948. While the album’s artwork is very much in vogue with images of the cold war 1950’s, one could just as easily consider John and Daryl children of the Viet Nam war, as they both watched in horror as many of their friends were drafted into that conflict.As to the cover art by airbrush artist Peter Palombi, all of the images represent aspects of the late 1940’s and early 50’s, things Daryl and John would have been more than familiar with: -Backing the entire collage is the CD symbol, representing Civil Defense, referring to the organized non-military effort to prepare Americans for military attack.-The "A" sticker: the most common of the WW2 Gas ration stickers, and was issued to the general public. The stickers had to be affixed to the car's windshield. To get one's classification and ration stamps, drivers had to certify to a local board that you needed gas and owned no more than five tires.-Evenflow Bottle: Evenflo has been a worldwide leader in the development of innovative infant equipment and high quality baby care products. Evenflo’s feeding division began as a company that solely distributed baby care products. It was originally incorporated in 1920 as the Pyramid Rubber Company in Ravenna, Ohio.-Ike (Dwight D. Eisenhower) & Dick (Richard M. Nixon) Sure To Click campaign button 1952.-Sandwich: Of course meat was also rationed during the war and after, meaning many people lunched on Cheese (which was no patriotically called American Cheese), tomato and lettuce on white bread.-Photos: The photos are stand-ins, depicting wholesome American families, a military farther, sons in the Boy Scouts and the daughter, well, she stayed at home and learned motherly duties during those years.  The second photo features a girl on a carousel ride, more wholesome fun.-Crackers: While prepackaged peanut butter crackers such as those made by Lance were around, they cost money and were not yet the rage, mothers did send their kids to school with Peter Pan peanut butter on Nabisco crackers.Review by Jenell Kesler
