    Well, you can guess how I feel. Well, OK, more detail...some winners like Slinky Thing and I"m Not the Same Without You, some misfires, but even the misfires are worth repeated listens just for the musicianship of the crew and DF. But anyway all reviews are bs because everyone creates their own reality and who the eff am I to pass judgement on some else's creativity? Who, I ask you?

    Great album! It has those songs you have to listen to a couple of times, and then you need to hear because they are stuck in your brain.

    I really liked "Not the same without you" It may be a relationship song, but listen to it again as a metaphor about past drug addiction.

    Bless you Donald for continuing to give us excellent songs and arrangements.

    Sunken Condos is a slyer, slow-burning pleasure. [Dec 2012, p.89]

    Fagen's fourth albums is as airtight as his others. [Dec 2012, p.104]
  3. You'll grow to love the queen of Bowlmor Lanes, the Jazz Age gangster who takes pride in his work, the souvenirs of dooms past rusting in the back of the sci-fi shop.
