“From my all-time favorite album Aja, there are so many details, as usual, in their music. I’ve listened to this album every week since my teens. It has all the music elements I love: perfect songwriting, tight band-playing, very open harmonies, sarcastic lyrics, imaginative solos, and state-of-the-art sound quality. Becker and Fagen make my life better”. – Ed Motta
