Having listened to this a lot while growing up, I started having an aversion to Steely Dan - something gave me the creeps about their music when I heard it. While this is a psychological problem for later times, I realize in relistening that they were an extremely musically diverse band. They are definitely in the realm of jazz, and would be considered a sort of pop jazz today. Not sure what they were considered back then. Good use of piano, some auxiliary percussion ... a lot of nice components to their music.
It was fine. Not a huge fan, but entertaining nonetheless.
Its very familiar, and quite repetitive. But it's good soul-grooving material!
Some foundational rock and roll there!
Loved the heavy reliance on percussion. The songs were driving and worth listening to.
You can hear a lot of foundations for later alternative bands. It's soul-grooving, with driving guitars and interesting lyrics.
I didn't really enjoy it that much.
Oh hell to the no.
Classic pop. Morrissey is often made fun of, but his voice was one to be reckoned with. This is less driving than their previous album, but still one of infinite moodiness.
I think because it's a bit dated I had trouble giving it a good ear. It was good for it's time, but Courtney Love is just too aggravating to listen to at times.
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST! Curtis Mayfield was a force to be reckoned with!
I think I have other favorite Fugazi albums, but this one is good as well. It's driving and intense, just as Fugazi always was.
Earthy tones and gut wrenching tunes.
Driving guitar, intense music from the experimental legends of alternative rock.
It's a classic when it comes to heavy metal ... popular edition. It's fun revisiting it after all these years.
