From Fischman
My favorite Dan. Their uniqueness shines here with a perfect blend of jazzy/progressive influence in hard pop/rock tunes with intelligent lyrics. World class cuts include Dr Wu, Bad Sneakers, Black Friday, and Any World (That I'm Welcome To)

Steely Dan's fourth album is another set of quirky pop songs. Picking up where, pretzel logic, left off, Katy lied, is more of the same(in a good way). Fantastic songs include, bad sneakers, daddy don't live, and, doctor wu. Great band.

"Doctor Wu" is the only major highlight in this bizarre set of tunes. The Minutemen covered it on their "Double Nickels" album.

"Bad Sneakers" and "Black Friday" are also worth hearing.

This was the first major recording project for Michael McDonald. I think he was hardly known at the time.

Steely Dan begins to assume a fuller sound with jazz influences coming to the fore, a trend that would culminate in Aja a few years later. Always gifted with the pen, Donald Fagen has written perhaps his most interesting set of lyrics with this album, with "Everyone's Gone To The Movies" surely his creepiest ever.

Great album. Also, the beginning of the infamous and most music history's most hated band, Toto, as the session giants David Paich and Jeff Porcaro were sessioning on this on keys and drums, respictively.

From Willie24
In my view the best Dan album full of really great tracks my favourites being Rose Darlin and the creepy but catchy Everyone's gone to the Movies, Luv Dr Wu. Lots of light and shade, interesting but as ever inpenertrable lyrics. My original vinyl album had a very muddy sound CD much much better - Love it

From Rovers
"Katy Lied" is one of Steely Dan's great classic albums ( OK, they all are!) from when they were still a real band, and not "just" the Becker/Fagen duo.

The Becker/Fagen aim for perfection is very much apparent here. Great production and playing. Inspired songwriting and dark thought-provoking lyrics.

Most tracks are incredible catchy and melodic; especially "Rose Darling" and "Everyone's Gone to the Movies" are likely to "hit" you the first time you here them.

The opening track "Black Friday" is a surprisingly heavy track ( for Dan!!) that sets the scene right from the very beginning. Like always there is a great variation in rhytmths and styles, but this is never a problem because everything is done with great artistic skill.

My first version of the album had a slightly "woolen" sound, but on the 1999 re-mastered version the sound is perfect.

A 1975 classic with catchy standouts:"Rose Darling" and "Everyone's Gone To The Movies"
