I knew before I listened to Donald Fagen‘s album The Nightfly that I would not like it. I have heard at least one song from it when it was released in 1982. He was a member of Steely Dan, which was on this list in the 70s and I was not a huge fan. They had one good album and two okay ones, if I remember correctly.
I have heard the first song on the album “I.G.Y.“. I always thought it was boring, especially vocally. His voice is not a favourite of mine.
Another song of his I realised that I have heard was “New Frontier“. It sucks too.
Overall, this album is filled with one long song or at least it sounds that way. It went on forever. I would take a hard pass on this if I were you. 3/10.
