Kamakiriad is the second solo album by Steely Dan artist Donald Fagen, released in 1993. It was his first collaboration since 1980 with Steely Dan partner Walter Becker, who produced the album. The album is a futuristic, optimistic eight-song cycle about the journey of the narrator in his high-tech car, the Kamakiri (Japanese for praying mantis). It was nominated for a Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1993.
Donald Fagen's second solo album is a song cycle of sorts, following the adventures of an imaginary protagonist as he travels the world in his car, a brand-new Kamakiri. Evocative or not, this is not Fagen's best effort.
Kamakiriad Tracklist. 1. Trans-Island Skyway Lyrics. 2. Countermoon Lyrics. Kamakiriad is an album of eight related songs. The literal action takes place a few years in the future, near the millennium. In the first song, Trans-Island Skyway, the narrator tells us he is about to embark on a journey in his new dream-car, a custom-tooled Kamakiri. The next six songs describe his adventures along the way. In the last song, Teahouse on the Tracks, the narrator lands in dismal Flytown where he must decide whether to bail out or to rally.
