Rolling Stone (3/10/94, p.67) - "...suggests that the group's greatest strength wasn't writing or playing but arranging..."Q (2/94, p.109) - 5 Stars - Indispensable - "...Steely Dan is the closest pop has come to the acid wit of Wilde and Coward and Vidal...."Melody Maker (1/8/94, p.29) - "...Steely Dan were no more nihilistic than The Stooges. It's just that, instead of Rolling Stones riffs and Chuck Berry solos, Becker and Fagen used East Coast Jazz, Latin rhythms, saccharine harmonies and choruses worthy of Burt Bacharach or Hollywood musicals..."130.8792

Entertainment Weekly (10/20/95, p.66) - "...Their 1993-94 resumption--a big-band revue documented in 11 familiar tracks here--may have been uncharacteristically concessive, but the smooth spite in their subversive neo-Babylonian bop still sounds as contemporary as today's headlines."- Rating: B+104.2749

These OGs flex their trademark dark wit like it never went out of style..."Mojo (Publisher) (3/00, p.102) - "...Sharp, sleek, sophisticated, more going on than a couple of spins can take in and seductive enough to keep drawing you back. 9 tracks, some a little cooler, funkier or jazzier than others...and all top-form. Quintessentially Steely Dan."NME (Magazine) (3/4/00, p.35) - 7 out of 10 - "...exquisite....still hermetically sealed in an exclusive world where the pursuit of the immaculate 'chop' is paramount, [they] are the only men in history to make the concept of the cerebral muso remotely tantalising..."0.473412

CMJ (No. 922, p.2) - "On their third full-length, frontman Robert Suchan channels Elton John while the rest of the band straddles Steely Dan's '70s lite-rock and Pavement's shambolic slacker ethos with style and poise. Throughout, Fashion's bittersweet melodies and rollicking arrangements prove that all pop doesn't have to be disposable."0.473412

Crazy nice..."Entertainment Weekly (5/28/93, p.62) - "...picks up almost where both men left off when Steely Dan unofficially disbanded around 1981....recalls a time when musicians and producers would spend months or years in the studio in search of the perfect pop record..." - Rating: B-Q (1/94, p.85) - Included in Q's list of `The 50 Best Albums Of 1993' - "...those thrilling, wide chords and hipster lyrics are timeless tricks..."Q (7/93, p.86) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Exquisite rather than lush, the music is not only sensually brilliant but exactly catches the subtle paradoxes of Fagen's dreamworld....Fagen's laconic voice of muted anxiety casts a soft blue light on this gleaming musical roadster..."Melody Maker (5/29/93, p.35) - "...miraculous...."Musician (7/93, p.85) - "...a supremely seductive, elegant work....Fagen is an illusionist, a cineastic composer with all the adorable idiosyncrasies and flourishes of Ellington, or Woody Allen, and he possesses both those artists' gift for making such qualities inseparable..."NME (Magazine) (5/29/93, p.31) - 7 - Very Good - "...Donald Fagen is still in touch with aspects of his greatness...."0.236706
