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..."63.822

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+50.63596

Dirty Linen (p.46) - "[With] a veritable smorgasbord of styles, recalling at times Steely Dan, the Band, Duane Eddy and, most prominently, mid-70s ZUMA-era Neil Young and Crazy Horse....Doucet does a fine job of creating memorable, emotional sonic landscapes."0.5590136

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..."0.4658447

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."0.4658447
