Listen deeply and groove

I bought this album upon release. At that the we were probably all just happy to have some new Fagen/Dan material as it had been a long ten years since any album had been released. So, in 93' there's a lot of pressure on this album to make up for lost time. The timing was right too as I knew a lot of people were in a "Dan mood".

So what did I think? Well, it had more emphasis on rhythm and drum machines. The first three tunes kind of blended together, and the album was on the short side. Walter Becker helped out. So it's kind of a Dan album. Cool!

Once it got into my CD player it did not come out that whole summer of 93'.

That summer I had decided to lifeguard at a local pool just to do something completely different. And as we all know, there's no better summertime swimming pool music than the "Dan".

Well it happens that my lifeguard buddy is a beautiful collage girl, and she likes the bop of this music.

So how was Kamakiriad holding up? Very nicely!

Between all of that, and the story/fantasy narrative lyrics, I'm vastly enjoying this album and can't get enough of it. All the better that the Dan reformed and toured every summer after that for several years leading up to 2 Against Nature.

So you see, sometimes the Dan is about set and setting. And in my case it was perfect. Kamakiriad will always rank up there with all of the other great Fagen and Steely Dan albums for that reason, and also for the reason that either the songs are excellent (Snowbound, Tomorrow's Girls, Florida Room), or the groove was smooth (Trans-Island Skyway, Countermoon, Springtime), or the mood was sweet (On the Dunes, Teahouse on the Tracks). Because Kamakiriad moves in sections, from the bop, to the deep (but still boppy), to the mellow gold groove, it feels complete and fulfilling.

To me this is a classic album because I listened to it so much, and have a lot of very good memories attached to it, that every time I hear it, I go straight back to 93'. That's what a good Dan or Fagen album does.

i was surprised

i recently downloaded this one thinking it might be kinda lame like the last couple of steely dan albums. not like those at all. relaxing is a word i would use to describe it.


Perfect. Donald. Fagen.


Born: January 10, 1948 in Passaic, NJ

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Donald Fagen was one of the two masterminds behind Steely Dan, the seminal jazz-pop band of the '70s. Fagen's solo work has been a continuation of the band's work of the early '80s -- carefully constructed and arranged, intricately detailed pop songs that are more substantial than their stylish surface may indicate. His 1982 solo debut, The Nightfly, was the best album he had made in years; it covered the same ground as the last two Steely Dan albums, yet surpassed them in terms of ambition and achievement....
