Surprised more people don't hate Steely Dan tbh. They are an acquired taste. I think there's a certain strand of 90s post-rock that is indebted to them and that just clicked when I heard Aja. Some albums are better than others. Ah, opinions.

Americans just don't get them though. I was like, "wow, these lyrics are out there." Americans were like, "naw, its just so cheesy."

Eh?

Conclusion: Americans haven't a clue about Steely Dan.

If you don't like Steely Dan, you might like NRBQ. They are like Steely Dan for Yo La Tengo fans. From the same era. Class.

Lasted about thirty seconds with Fr. John Misty. Awful voice. Terrible dross.

Every now and again I see old footage of bands from this era and am reminded why punk happened

Most ridiculously self-regarding genre, they just recycled what black lads in America had been doing 25 years earlier and acted like it was all edgy. Fuck that for a show. Punk's not dead, it was never alive to begin with.
