iTunes Review

Age hasn't mellowed Donald Fagen. Steely Dan has always been a band obsessed with perfection, with songs that either act as brainteasers or dark tales lurking under a shiny veneer, and Fagen continues this approach into senior status. He plays the role of the older man trying to keep a younger woman in "Slinky Thing." He's surprised by the advantages of a relationship gone sour on "I'm Not the Same Without You," while a blues harmonica cuts through the smooth jazz-pop. "Weather in My Head" questions the emotions swirling around one's mind. "Miss Marlene" understands the romance that accompanies tragedy among the young and beautiful. Fagen expands the modern definition of "ghetto" to re-include the Jewish people, with a bit of klezmer injected into his cover of Isaac Hayes' "Out of the Ghetto." Because he was never a young man anxious to hop on trends, Fagen, at 64, doesn't sound out of step or like a desperate artist trying to stay relevant. By following his own ear wherever it goes, he continues to make music that's clearly his alone.

Perfect balance..

The perfect mix of Steely Dan and Donald Fagen's solo work, more than anything else he's done. While the Nightfly, far and away, has been my favorite Fagen album, Sunken Condos, just based on an initial listen, is going to be a very close second. "Weather in My Head" may as well be old school Steely Dan. Fabulous stuff; thanks, Donald! You remain a genius.


Unlike the classic Steely Dan, which, in every song, there's a new adventure and vibe, every song sounds the same. It's all so redundant. Nothing stands out. Each track sounds like Donald's feeling around for something unique but never quite finding it.

If you dig Steely Dan then this is a must have! Fagen continues his extraordinary talent for producing studio albums with every cut a keeper! Enough said, got to get back to listening to this gem again!

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....
