"One word: fantastic. Nothing else to add." Apparently, that wasn't very helpful before, sorry. (That's where the 2 "review did not help" votes come from.) Please allow me to make up for it and write about this disc in more detail. On music and performance: Musically, Steely Dan are very ... more

I openly admit to not engaging with the intellect of this disc, because I was instantly put off by its lack of .. umm... everything else. The songs are boring (musically). They may have a message, but ... more

Hi Monica, Thanks for your comment. My beef is of course only with the "new" surround mix of the album, not with the original music, production or mix. Whenever you remix music for surround, especially if you’re remixing a 20 year old “classic”, the question is how true you stay to the original mix or how far you stray. You ... more
