    Walter Becker's second solo album shows off his contribution to the sound and songs of Steely Dan much more aptly than his first solo effort (11 Tracks of Whack). This album is immediate and effortless, and grabs you from the first track and doesn't let go. You get tracks that harken back to the SD sound (Paging Audrey, Upside Looking Down, and Downtown Canon), fun listens (Somebody's Saturday Night, Three Picture Deal) and a new element added to the soundscape, reggae, notably in the dub style bass tracks, in songs like Bob Is Not Your Uncle Anymore and Do You Remember the Name. The addition of the reggae styling to the unmistakable sound initially seems like an odd pairing, but within the first few seconds, you can't remember why. It all fits together so perfectly that you wonder why there weren't more songs in the Steely Dan lexicon to include this sound, and are reminded of the fantastic songs that did (remember Haitian Divorce?). Larry Klein (whose produced last years Album of the Year Grammy Winner by Herbie Hancock) does a fantastic job of removing anything which would detract us from the two most important things namely, Walter's songs and the fantastic backing band, honed by five years of touring behind Steely Dan. Buy it, you won't be disapointed.
