5.0 out of 5 stars Meticulous Crafting Meets Musical Genius, 8 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Aja (Audio CD)
Having proved their superior credentials throughout the seventies, the Dan found themselves retired from the stressful tour scene, with countless hours of studio time on their hands in much the same way as the Beatles had in the mid sixties. The fab four relished the lack of constraints and went on to produce their best work sans tour-bus. The same can be said for this unlikely duo. If Aja was a car, it would be a classic hand-crafted machine, finely tuned, slick, lightning fast and sporty yet maintaining an air of style, class and panache. Each component having been fastidiously assembled with incredible attention to detail. Much was made of the all star cast that contributed to this seminal masterpiece, but to simplify it this way would be a mistake. Aja is the piece de resistance of Steely Dan's celebrated output. True musical magic is created here, the whole is worth exponetially more than the sum of it's parts. If you have any interest in finding how the often polarised principles of musical talent and songwriting talent can be fused together in a bubble of listening pleasure, then look no further. - Dan Serpico
