considering that this album is 20 years old it still sounds current. Great remastering. Huge improvement in sound over the original!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
By their fourth album, Steely Dan was Fagan and Becker and session musicians. Even Fagan and Becker didn't play on all their own songs anymore. This album is their sixth, and it has elements of R&B and funk, and is very jazzy. It's a classic album, no filler. The song "Aja" is a masterpiece on many levels.

I already own the box set, and wanted to upgrade to the remastered CD's because of good reviews on the "improved" sound. The remastering is subtle - the sound is cleaner, clearer and has more depth, but has retained all the dynamics without being overly loud or bright. However, without a hi-fi stereo system, I doubt most people would notice any improvement over the oringal CD's or the box set - previously released versions already sounded quite good. So, it's an unnecessary purchase for most people(hence, my reason for deducting one star).

The remastered version includes lyrics and extra running commentary, which is continued on each successive CD.

If you like this album, you may want to check out the DVD, "Classic Albums - the Making of Aja".

Possibly the most perfect album of ANY genre, ever, AJA is superb from its totally original cover to every cut on this disc/CD, or whatever form you get it in. Honestly, there's not one bad piece on this stellar album. It would be almost impossible to pick a favorite in this conorcoupia of aural delights, but my favorite is possibly "Black Cow." This album, somehow, doesn't "date" and is as fresh today as it was many years ago. And the cover is now a classic too, reproduced as a poster. Nothing else Steely Dan ever did will top this. And no other album ever produced will be as perfect as this. Top of the line, from cover to cover.

I have several copies of this in vinyl and all are better than this particular CD. Not sure why but as noted, the music is great - a must have standard for any Steely Dan fan.

What a powerful musical statement! It would be difficult....close
to impossible, to find fault with this. These 1999 remasters are
fantastic. The drumming on the title track "Aja" is superb, amazing!
The whole construction of "Deacon Blues" is majestic. When this was
released in '77 I purchased a vinyl copy immediately. I was a DanFan
from the get go and that's 40 years back. As always, the sidemen put
it out for Becker/Fagen. Bernard Purdie and Larry Carlton. Joe Sample
and Tom Scott. Lee Ritenour and Tim Schmit....I could go on but I'll
spare you. This is an excellent album at a fantastic price. Get a copy
for yourself and a friend! I ordered two, for just that reason.....

"Le" meilleur album en son genre, comme on ne l'a jamais entendu. Même en stéréo seulement, quel chaleur du son DSD.
Un bijou dans ma collection et un SACD exemplaire.

When you tried to throw this one in a particular section of the record store back in 1977, the year of its' release, you really had a difficult task. To avoid complication, stores were filing the record under Rock. You see, back then you only had 4 or 5 different categories to choose from. Things like Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Rap, Hip Hop, Alternative, Smooth Jazz, and Acid Jazz were all nifty names that came after 1977,...way after. Yes, in 1977 you had Rock, R&B, Jazz, and Classical, that was about it. So, is this a Rock record? Well, kind of. Is it a R&B record? Well, at times it is. Is it a Jazz record? Well, it's not your "traditional" jazz record. So where do we put this one, boss? If you're the boss you reply, "Rock". Why was this filed under Rock? Well, for 2 reasons really; 1 - It rocks very nicely at many points throughout. 2 - Rock radio is playing it, ...this is the important one. Rock radio grabbed this record and abused the airwaves with it, and to this day these songs are in regular rotation on the classic rock stations. I don't know about anybody else but, I have a hard time seeing this as simply a Rock record.

"Aja" is an album that is rich in pure musicianship, tone, and texture. It may sound as if I'm describing a Monet, I know, but this is Rock at its' most artistic. With Walter Becker playing guitar, and Donald Fagen providing the synthesizer and soul for Steely Dan, this is a masterpiece. Donald Fagen has a trademark voice that is soulful and smooth. With this duo getting hired help such as Tom Scott, Larry Carlton, Wayne Shorter, Rick Marotta, Steve Gadd, Venetta Fields, and Dean Parks, it reads like an all-star Jazz Fusion jam, and that's a pretty accurate description of what you get here.

This is one of the best albums of all time in any genre - a true masterpiece. With heavy-weight players like Steve Gadd, Larry Carlton, Tom Scott, Lee Ritenour, Steve Kahn, Michael MacDonald and Wayne Shorter, it is a landmark in the 20th century music scene. The compositions, performances, production, mixing and editing are superb.
