This Month’s CD Recommendation
“Two Against Nature” reunites Walter Becker and Donald Fagen of Steely Dan. Impeccably played and flawless to a fault, the nine catch ditties almost succeed. Although the disturbing “Cousin Dupree” and the pleasant enough “What A Shame About Me” get most of the publicity, the whole album is Steely Dan at its studio best—not a beat out of place, with stellar sidemen playing carefully crafted tunes. My favorite track is “Negative Girl,” where at least Vinnie Colaiuta (Sting) gets the drums right. It’s not “Katy Lied” or “AJA,” but it’s Steely Dan all the way. A must for fans, “Two Against Nature” will require repeated listening for skeptics before they get it, if they ever do.
