This album rocks. No, it's not as consistent as what came before, save "Royal Scam", but "Gaucho" is the culmination of all of those albums and, like the Amazon reviewer stated, is the logical bridge between the original Dan and the reunion albums. This one will take some time to appreciate, but once you do, the reward is plentiful. This is an unforgettable album, a timeless classic, and one that no fan of music should be without. This has "Hey 19", "Babylon Sisters", and "Time out of Mind", but my favorite is the complex, weird discofied "Glamour Profession". The group is hot on this album, and shows no signs of decay. "Aja" might have been a bigger accomplishment, but "Gaucho" is yet another fine product by the Dan. My only complaint with this album is that it's a bit shorter than the others. Apparently the boys had some problems in the studio that led to the breakup. But it's interesting to wonder what would have happened if they had kept releasing an album every couple of years. Steely Dan, in 1985? NICE. GO BUY THIS NOW AND WIPE THE RUST OFF YOUR BRAIN. KEITH JARRETT CO-WROTE THE TITLE TRACK, FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!
