alive in america

whoever wrote the 'itunes' review of alive in america is clearly void of understanding the beauty of this performance. pulling off these songs and arrangements live is a monumental task. fagen and becker did it so skillfully after not having been on a stage together in almost 15 years. please, if you don't understand something, don't write about it. this album is a 'must have' for anyone who appreciates the amazing beauty of steely dan.

Whoever wrote the iTunes review for this got it wrong. The fact that Steely Dan could pull off these songs live at all, most of which were only ever done in the studio with a wide variety of session musicians, is an amazing feat of musicianship. The opening three tracks are among the finest in all of the Steely Dan catalog, in fact Green Earrings and Bodhisattva actually outdo the versions on the original albums. Reelin' In the Years and Book of Liars are the only tracks that don't stand out, the rest is a superb affirmation of Steely Dan's place at the top of the rock and roll heap.
