EVERYTHING IS GREAT !,
This review is from: Everything Must Go (Audio CD)
With EVERYTHING MUST GO the genius that is STEELY DAN provide to listeners a collection of songs that could be best described as intelligent Pop that will sound fresh and strong ten years from today.
The compositions on EVERYTHING MUST GO are perfectly complex and yet could be a soundtrack for the summer of 2003. However, STEELY DAN may have a hard time obtaining airplay on current Top40 radio with this CD. EVERYTHING MUST GO sounds like the partner to Two Against Nature (which won ALBUM OF THE YEAR at the GRAMMY AWARDS).
This CD has the same laid-back, catchy jazz-funk, only with a much looser feel. It is as if STEELY DAN obtained a boost of confidence due to the mega success of their last studio project and are having fun this time around. “A Slang Song” sounds like a song found in the back music vaults of Dire Straits!
Die hard and new fans will be impressed with the quality of compositions included in this collection. From the opening harmonies of the first song “The Last Mall” to the closing chords on the last number .
“Everything must go” is a marvel to discover.
