4 stars Typical Steely Dan, perfect sound, golden melodies, well balanced music. If you like other Stely Dan albums, you will like that one as well.

So, what the diffrence we can find there ( in comparence with earlier works? I think main difference is "Katy Lied" is more rock songs album ( in sense of Steely Dan, for sure). You hear more structurised soft-rock songs and less jazzy arrangements, it's for sure. For me the result is not bad at all. Yes, I like jazzy clothes of Steely Dan songs, but there you can see another side of their music, and it side is realy nice.

I can recommend this SD album for those who prefer more rock sound against jazzy arrangements. All in all, very strong and beautiful album.
