3 stars 3.5 stars really

Gaucho saw the light in 1980 after some 3 years silence. A return to form I might say, after the most unintresting Steely Dan album ever to me Aja. On this album is one of the best and most intresting pieces band ever made both musicaly and lyricaly - Glamour Profession, this tune kick ass, really I love it big time. The rhythm section and the vocal passages are fantastic, definetly the best from the album. Gaucho is another smooth jazz pop rock album , that brings nothing new in their sound, but they still provide good music and most of the time quite enjoyble. Baylon sisters is snother highligh that goes very well here showing that Fagen and Walter Becker are still on the baricades. An entertaining album, not as slick and polished as Aja, and for that I do considered this one better and among their best albums for sure and aswell an end to an era Fagen pursued a critically successful solo career and Becker becoming a producer. Steely Dan disbanded in 1981 untill they reformed in mid '90s for two more albums since then.. 3.5 stars easy.
