Steely Dan - Aja

More reviews from rateyourmusic:

What can be said of one of the greatest albums ever that hasn't been said already? How the musicians managed to stay sane while doing this album, I don't know. Usually I'm not too interested in over-produced music, but this is so over-the-top produced that it takes on a different level.

It's obvious some get this album, some don't. From the out it could remind you of elevator music but I wish elevator music could be this good. I have to admit it took a few tries before I got this album, but just like Velvet Underground & Nico for instance music doesn't always have to be easy to understand. You have to grow to some albums.

Steely Dan has produced a number of great albums like Pretzel Logic and Can't Buy a Thrill but without Aja they would be just another good band.
