In truth, the ones I hadn't heard (anything before Lil Beethoven and after Indiscreet, other than No 1 In Heaven and Angst In My Pants) for the most part are only okay.
I would say though that In Outer Space was better than expected, almost as good as Angst In My Pants. I also really liked Gratuitous Sax And Senseless Violins, best since Angst easily. I get the feeling its reputation is being suppressed by it sounding like the Pet Shop Boys, but the songwriting has all the Sparks personality and is pretty much the style they'd use from then on. Great album!
Ween I used to find overhyped by the WRC back in the day, but enough time has passed I can enjoy them without baggage. I still don't like GodWeenSatan that much. Ot sometimes seems like every American 90's alt-rock band had their origins in tuneless screaming hardcore influences. I have developed a taste for The Pod, though, probably my favourite of the early ones.
Also after the WRC Ween champions being cool on it, and the band themselves slagging it off, and then messily imploding shortly afterwards, it turns out La Cucaracha is actually pretty decent. Mid-level Ween but not their worst by any means.
As for Steely Dan, I'd only heard a couple of songs and listened to Aja once years ago. But now I've heard all their records - and this may be an indication of my advancing years - I am now a Steely Fan.
I don't have that much to say about them because their catalogue is sort of like one big song, their albums are pretty even in quality. There's a slight decline starting after the first two, and an uptick for a couple of
The only one I find slightly iffy is the very last one, because the first half is simplistic boomer blues pop. And even the second half of that one is quite nice. A good band!
