Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 145/500!

Universal UK Import Pressed on 180 Gram Vinyl!
Mastered by Bernie Grundman! Lacquers cut by Greg Moore at Masterpiece Studios in London!


Aja, Steely Dan’s sixth studio opus, is yet another testament to Walter Becker and Donald Fagen’s quest for sonic perfection. Such was the quality of the record that it has often been used to demonstrate the audio fidelity for stereo systems, and winning the 1978 Grammy Award for Best Engineered Non-Classical Recording. Produced by Gary Katz, the album peaked at No 3 in the States (where it went double platinum) and No. 5 in the UK, producing the hit singles ‘Peg’, ‘Deacon Blues’ and ‘Josie’ in the process. In a review that gave the album full marks, Q magazine described the record as "Sleek, smart, deliciously cynical, (this) was the Steely Dan album that effectively ring-fenced jazz-funk forevermore... what rich entertainment still."

"A coolly textured and immaculately produced collection of sophisticated jazz-rock, Aja has none of the overt cynicism or self-consciously challenging music that distinguished previous Steely Dan records. Instead, it's a measured and textured album, filled with subtle melodies and accomplished, jazzy solos that blend easily into the lush instrumental backdrops. But Aja isn't just about texture, since Becker and Fagen's songs are their most complex and musically rich set of songs -- even the simplest song, the sunny pop of 'Peg,' has layers of jazzy vocal harmonies. In fact, Steely Dan ignores rock on Aja, preferring to fuse cool jazz, blues, and pop together in a seamless, seductive fashion." - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
