Steely Dan 4/9: Nice chill sounds on this Steely Dan album. Our boys continue to be masters of their draft on Katy Lied. Honestly, this record is solid all around with great jazzy instrumentals and enjoyable hooks aplenty. However, this record didn't particularly excite me for most of its runtime. I found this one to be very good background music, but I probably wont rush to come back to it anytime soon. Doctor Wu is my favorite moment of this album, but nothing here is bad.

This has a crisper sound, but this is the first time where I feel like the band is really just spinning the wheels. This doesn’t feel new, adventurous, or like the best crop of songs. Just kind of safe for them.

While it is not as standout as the last 3 Steely Dan albums, Katy Lied is full of good instrumental work and the solos were great. If they exercised a bit more liberty it could have been something more.
