It's been on the turntable for 2 weeks now (side 1 especially), nearly continuously...... any suggestions for a record that might replace and help break this fixation?

I listened to nothing else but four Steely Dan albums in my car for more than three months when my Dan fixation first kicked in.

A Steely Dan phase is to be celebrated.

why

serious answer - a lot happening, not all of it nice, and I'm not sure if I want such a great record to become associated with particular events

sonofstan, Wednesday, 13 June 2007 21:19 (ten years ago) Permalink

listen to Boys Like Girls or something then.

The Nightfly.

yeah but why ruin the nightfly? disposable pop seems the way to go.

Silly answer on a few minutes reflection - if it's the only thing that doesn't seem dumb or shallow at the moment then I should just go with it

creepiest album ever?

one year passes...

apart from that song, which yeah is pretty impressively creepy, i don't really think it's a creepy album. i find it sad more than anything, much sadder than any other SD i've heard. i guess Daddy Don't Live and Black Friday are pretty sleazy but most of the other songs just drip sadness and pain. Dr Wu, YGT2 and Any World are heartbreaking.

I think I've said this elsewhere, but I love how every note is perfect, and perfectly placed. The piano on this album . . . !

This album sounds so much tougher on vinyl, no joke. The drums hit way harder

Still my favorite Dan album, a year or so out from my first all-consuming rush of listening to them.

I’ve only ever heard Katy Lied in digital form, and there at least it’s mixed thinner than any of the others in their original run. But it still is and will probably always be my favorite - there’s a pathos, especially on the first half, that doesn’t really have a parallel in the rest of their work. “Third World Man,” maybe. But I’ve always found Fagen’s vocal on that a little overwrought, and “Dr. Wu” and “Bad Sneakers” have juicier chord changes to boot.

Their most “New York” album

Disagree. Bery So Cal. Esp Bad Sneakers.

How the times are getting hard
And that fearsome excavation
On Magnolia Boulevard"

Ok, I’ll see your one reference and raise you:

- Black Friday - references Wall st crashing
- Bad Sneakers - stomping on the Avenue (6th) by Radio City
- Daddy Don’t Live in that ...

Aja might be the second most NY album due to:
- Rudy’s
- Home at Last

calstars, Tuesday, 5 December 2017 00:28 (one week ago) Permalink

And Pretzel Logic has :
- the cover photo in front of Central Park
- 52nd street’s the junction

What else ...

calstars, Tuesday, 5 December 2017 00:30 (one week ago) Permalink

Royal Scam:
- cover references the Chrysler building

Can’t Buy:
- Brooklyn...

Plenty more here!

Aja might be the second most NYLA album due to:

-Peg
-dude ranch above the sea

Or you know...could be both.
