Everything Must Go [Bonus DVD]

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
For decades, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker have built an image as tortured perfectionists, wiseass cynics and purveyors of some of the smartest songs to have ever lodged themselves in the classic rock playlist. Well, on this disc -- "only" two and a half years in the making -- they go a long way toward divesting themselves of the first two portions of that troika, delivering a batch of songs that crackle with a live spark not heard since the dawn of the Dan, not to mention a heretofore unaired streak of sincere humanity. Several songs on Everything Must Go -- particularly the wistful title track and the lonely ramble "Things I Miss the Most" -- take on topics like ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
For decades, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker have built an image as tortured perfectionists, wiseass cynics and purveyors of some of the smartest songs to have ever lodged themselves in the classic rock playlist. Well, on this disc -- "only" two and a half years in the making -- they go a long way toward divesting themselves of the first two portions of that troika, delivering a batch of songs that crackle with a live spark not heard since the dawn of the Dan, not to mention a heretofore unaired streak of sincere humanity. Several songs on Everything Must Go -- particularly the wistful title track and the lonely ramble "Things I Miss the Most" -- take on topics like mortality and loss, offering more palpable reactions than the shrug of their past loner anthems. Similarly, "Slang of Ages," one of the disc's gnarlier numbers, finds Becker -- taking lead vocal chores in the studio for the first time -- reflecting on his past descent into drug addiction without romanticizing, or actively proselytizing against, the whole shebang. Even more surprising is the disc's sonic tenor, which builds on the comparatively bouncy grooves laid down on 2000's Two Against Nature: "Godwhacker" brings the funk with a sweaty fervor, while "Pixeleen" dapples the band's traditionally sleek surface with a mottling of cyberpunk nastiness. Although its title may conjure a sonic garage sale, Everything Must Go is actually brimming with some of the freshest sounds Steely Dan has ever crafted.
All Music Guide
When Steely Dan released Two Against Nature in 2000, their first album in 20 years, it was an unexpected gift, since all odds seemed against Donald Fagen and Walter Becker reteaming for nothing more than the occasional project, let alone a full album. As it turned out, the duo was able to pick up where they left off, with Two Against Nature seamlessly fitting next to Gaucho and earning the band surprise success, including a Grammy for Album of the Year, but the bigger surprise is that the reunion wasn't a one-off -- they released another record, Everything Must Go, a mere three years later. Given the relatively short turnaround time between the two records, it comes as little surprise that Everything Must Go is a companion piece to Two Against Nature, and sounds very much like that album's laid-back, catchy jazz-funk, only with an elastic, loose feel -- loose enough to have Walter Becker take the first lead vocal in Steely Dan history, in fact, which sums up the Dan's attitude in a nutshell. This time, they're comfortable and confident enough to let anything happen, and while that doesn't really affect the sound of the record, it does affect the feel. Though it as expertly produced as always, there's less emphasis on production and a focus on the feel, often breathing as much as a live performance, another new wrinkle for Steely Dan. Sometimes, it also sounds as if Becker and Fagen have written the songs quickly; there's nothing that betrays their high standards of craft, but, on a whole, the songs are neither as hooky nor as resonant as the ones unveiled on its predecessor. While it might have been nice to have a song as immediate as, say, "Cousin Dupree," there are no bad songs here and many cuts grow as nicely as those on Two Against Nature. But the real selling point of Everything Must Go is that relaxed, comfortable, live feel. It signals that Steely Dan has indeed entered a new phase, one less fussy and a bit funkier albeit lite funk. If they can keep turning out a record this solid every three years, we'd all be better off. [Initial pressings of Everything Must Go
