Some albums just 'hang' together,
This review is from: Aja (Audio CD)
This, is far and away the best Steely Dan album - and one of the best from anybody - one where the tracks are inextricably linked rather like DNA strands or a seamless god of a DJ's set.
Laid back, cool, yet edgy just when you think it's getting a bit TOO cool - this is US radio station rock/jazz that is far from being MOR. It's driving with the roof down music, as you gobble up the miles yet still has that groovy just-gone-midnight sort of surety.
Effortlessly performed, the complex compositions and interesting and absorbing lyrics set this one ahead. Some tracks are 7 minutes long - you'll want them even longer. I do. Mix in one of the best ever recorded studio albums - the audiophile in you will have you drooling at the sheer clarity of it all.
