Walter Becker’s second solo album from 2008 proves to be a reckoning of his life and destiny. In true Steely Dan fashion, the most obscure, hard to find release in the catalogue proves to yield the most information. It’s a very vulnerable, honest record that cuts through the cynical voice we’ve heard so many times across his career. Join Lizzie and Jon as they marvel at Walt’s foray into reggae and try not to burst into tears over the many revelations within.
Note: We found that this was such a detailed record, that we had to split our chat into two parts to make sure we covered everything. We hope you understand the decision.
