All About Jazz
Fagen’s music, rather than sounding of any particular time, seems to feel comfortable in any post-1970s period, but its especially true of The Nightfly, with its avoidance of the cheesy synthesizer tones that now dates so many 1980s albums. […]

Blogcritics
The Nightfly remains Fagen’s solo masterpiece, an album that still entrances with its jazz and rock mix, complex lyricsand contradictory philosophies (namely optimism versus pessimism). In other words, The Nightfly contains all the elements that make it a modern classic. […]

Like the International Space Station above us, The Nightfly continues to orbit as an unknown entity worthy of more praise than one might have you believe. […]
