Alive in America 4.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

The only possible complaint about this disc is that it simply does not contain enough songs. Granted, when you have a library of music that encompasses around 100 songs it is difficult to include everything. But, as a huge SD fan, of course I would love a live CD with all my favorites (and that is pretty much all of it). The recordings are not mixed perfectly, but the sound is crisp and clear. I recently saw the boys live and the concert was LOUD! I guess there is no way to box that live sound that hits you in the chest and makes you actually feel the music. Still, a great album nonetheless, with a great mix of their catalog from the seventies. Definitely a perfect 5 out of 5.

I've seen Steely Dan in concert and can attest to their strengths in a live setting. This album grew on me over the years. The final track, Aja, in particular, is amazing to listen to.

The official reviewer must be constipated. Fagen, Becker & Company are awesome live performers and pioneers of their era. In fact, I prefer their live performances (and nuances therein) over their original recordings. Their arrival on the pop music scene in the 70's provided a wonderful and expansive addition to the repertoire of rock music.
