Donald Fagen: Sunken Condos — Drowning not waving
Mat Snow, MOJO, December 2012
SUNKEN CONDOS: it's an eerie image; all our iPads, Audi TTs and bubble money submerged like Debussy's piano prelude 'La Cathedrale Engloutie'. So too our individual lives, it all ends in briny tears. One song here analogises climate catastrophe with the 'Weather In My Head', but Fagen won't wallow in such shallows without cracking wise; if this East Coast jazznik has ever in 40 years bared his soul in song, it's cryptically behind hipster shades.
