The jazz harmonies and elaborate arrangements that made Steely Dan so popular are on full display with Fagen's second solo album (produced by former collaborator Walter Becker). Tracks include Countermoon; Springtime; Snowbound; Tomorrow's Girls; Florida Room; On the Dunes , and more.
Any major dude will tell you that this immaculate jazz-pop collection sounds like it could have been recorded mere months, not 11 years, after The Nightfly
. A Steely Dan LP in all but name, Fagen and Walter Becker offer killer horn charts, lite-funk grooves, airy guitar riffs and hipster sci-fi lyrics. --Jeff Bateman
