Sunken Condos – Using A Style Still True to the Ear *** 1/2

The sound and music created by Donald Fagen, when at his best, is noteworthy and distinctive.  With Sunken Condos, Fagen breaks no new ground, but to suggest it is not worthy of an outright purchase and repeated plays would be a mistake material in nature.

With songs such as Miss Marlene, Good Stuff and I’m Not the Same Without You, Sunken Condos represents a level of quality (i.e., sound, writing, engineering) not seen since Steely Dan’s height of popularity.  So if you want to hear some new material in a genre and style of which you like – in this case Jazz/Rock – Sunken Condos is a sure bet.
