I have to apologise here,

I have a good collection of Steely Dan albums and most are simply great as many would agree.

Of course this is Donald Fagen and when he went solo I wasn't to disheartened when I heard such albums as "The Nightfly" but when I bought the "Kamakiriad" album I wasn't just disappointed I thought this was a cross between Midi and those tunes you get on a cheap keyboard.

Now, that was a strong opinion and it was too strong for this album, but I thought it because I have heard 7 Steely Dan albums (bearing in mind that they are mainly Donald Fagens excellent work anyway) plus Donald Fagens great solo album "The Nightfly" and "Kamakiriad" just wasn't acceptable to me.

For those who know what typical poor Soft/Smooth jazz is (which is a nieve persons perception of Jazz), this is it in a nut shell.

I would recommend Steely Dan's "Two Against Nature" if your looking for a follow up to "The Nightfly" or for that matter stick with Steely Dan albums if you are a fan, because they are all interesting in a good way unlike Kamakiriad.

Brilliant, can't praise this music high enough, I love everything Donald Fagen produces so this is perhaps not a critique you should read its very biased in its favours to Donald Fagen.

Being a fan of Steely Dan, it is only natural to appreciate Donald's solo work. As for the medium of a CD, it is something tangible that you can treasure.The product was keenly priced so I feel good value was acheived
