Just Buy It - Trust Me - You'll Love It
on 12 October 2017
Having been a fan of Steely Dan for over 40 years, I watch out for anything that Donald or Walter have been involved it.
So I was extremely pleased to find this; having listened to the snippets before pressing the purchase button, I thought it sounded very good.
But like so often happens, I did not really appreciate just how good this album is until I had heard it 4 or 5 times.
At that stage I came to the conclusion that it is the best that I have heard from Donald Fagan since I started listening
Having just found out that the album went Platinum both in the US and UK, i can only say that I am not really surprised.
My final point would be that having listened to so much of Becker's guitar work, I automatically assumed that the magnificent axe work was his, so imagine my surprise to find out that he was not involved in any way with this album - however, the guitar work, and the record production,is so good it's worth listening to in its own right, even without Fagan's classic voice and lyrics.
