PROS & CONS of ETMG


PROS: smooth & warmer than 2AN, seamless, no skippers, you'll likely play it from beginning to end without picking tracks; sharp cynical lyrics glazed in comfortably-numb beats.
CONS: you've already heard this music; cleverly melded but it's low-energy and frustratingly homogenous: no stand-out tracks whatsoever, with the exception of Becker's vocals on "Slang of Ages" - ultimately a distraction, not a contribution; sax & vocal backups are the same from track to track, just crutches. Peculiar lack of dynamism - at a skimpy 42 mins.
BOTTOM LINE: will probably improve with age, if only for its nostalgic value: sounds like a ghost of what SD used to be... if that was their intention, it succeeds.

Classic Steely Dan


A good Album. This album has all the elements that make up a good Steely Dan Album. The lyrics are witty and the music is blues, jazz and rock mix. The rifts are beautiful. It is way past worth listening to. This album is a new terrain explored. It encompasses a sharp perspective and a wry look at fast lane living. I rate it a 4 star album.

Simply put...


Never before have the words, "Sparkling Divine Gorgeousness," been more appropriate.
