4 stars Near "Aja"-next really good SD album. Balanced mix of soft-rock with some funky and jazzy arrangements, perfect musicians, golden melodies, perfect ( if not too commercial, polished) production.

This is Steely Dan at their best ( near "Aja "). Yes , it 's still very pop-sound, but it's a SD trademark. But at the same way you can find highest level of instrumentation, sound balance and warm atmosphere.

Never candidates for experimentalists or avantguarde, group rich their top in 1976-1977, with this and "Aja " albums. Even if you 'hate pop-rock, it is always interesting just to hear as artistic, intelligent and high musically profesional could it be!
