2 stars Steely Dan - The Royal Scam. This was a bit of a disappointment. A pop/funky/jazzy record with almost no progressive elements. I can't say I dislike it, but this just isn't my cup of tee. The vocal are really suitable for pop music but are totally far away from the rock/prog territory. This ain't a review in which I state this is a bad record, for it isn't. All instruments are played very well, the production is good (for it's musical style) and there are a lot of catchy songs. A lot of people might actually like this record. But for me this is simply not very interesting for fans of progressive music. I'm going to rate this two stars, but no hard feelings! Try this if you want to have a relaxing evening, want some jazz influenced pop or want to please your girlfriend with soothing light music on your romantic evening.
