Latest offering of Le Dan Nouveau

This album from the reformed Steely Dan is more immediate than Two Against Nature which preceded it, which is both a good thing and a bad thing. The base tracks were reportedly recorded in "live studio" but knowing Becker and Fagen that could mean just about anything. The songs are strong, especially Things I Miss the Most, Godwhacker, Slang of Ages (vocal by Walter) and Pixeleen. The most obviously Dan song is Green Book. Listen to the 30 second excerpts from these songs - I hope you love it as I do.

Back but not for good, although it is very good.

Dan fans had their last taste of the studio values and jazz inflected pop which had materialised on Countdown To Ecstasy and evovled into the master works of Royal Scam, Aja and Gaucho. Don and Walter recorded solo projects, and then came back after the teasing release of Alive in America, on which Walter Becker sang lead vocals on his own composition Book of Liars. Two Against Nature prepared the ground for Everything Must Go, the well constructed tracks with the mix of brass and cool funk, permeated throughout with the usual perverse clever lyrics. Proof positive that they should keep producing music, then the trail goes cold and we are left waiting and wondering if this was indeed their last album. Perhaps another master work will come, nevertheless what a legacy they have left behind. Slang Of Ages always makes me smile, Green Room is sublime lizard lounge irony, the opener is a catchy poke at materialism, and it closes with what I describe as funereal funk on Everything Must Go, sadly it looks as if everything did go.

their poorest offering

A long time fan but this seems to be lacking something. Memorable songs. Somehow even the title gives it away, everything must go like this is the material off the cutting room floor. Seems Donald Fagen kept all the good material for his solo project morph the cat which is a considerably better Steely Dan album. It would seem that Steely Dan don't have a very high opinion of the material as they played not one note from in during their 2009 UK tour. I hope this is not the last Steely Dan album it would be a shame but their position in the pantheon of music is safe with such a strong back catelogue

Most rock & roll bands are a tightly wound unit that developed their music through years of playing in garages and clubs around their hometown. Steely Dan never subscribed to that aesthetic. As the vehicle for the songwriting of Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, Steely Dan defied all rock & roll conventions. Becker and Fagen never truly enjoyed rock -- with their ironic humor and cryptic lyrics, their eclectic body of work shows some debt to Bob Dylan -- preferring jazz, traditional pop, blues, and...
