    Not that it's anything less than a very good record, but this one is the Steely Dan album I've listened to by far the least over the years. "Bodhisattva," "Razor Boy," "Your Gold Teeth," "Show Biz Kids" and "My Old School" are all terrific songs but the others don't do a lot for me. This one seems like a transitional effort after the more band-oriented debut but before the trademark professionalism that began with Pretzel Logic and has persisted to the present day.

    I agree , I agree , to me this album was the height of S.D., Jeff Baxter shows what a gifted musician/guitar player he is (Check him out on You Tube) ! All members contributing to the songwriting efforts of Fagen and Becker which were/are brilliant ! When in the early nineties a tour by Fagen, Becker and M. McDonald under the guise of "The New York Rock and Soul Review" .The group brought down the house with "My Old School" and "The Boston Rag" ! Shows that great songs will not grow old. Odd not one track off this album made the top ten charts......huh?

    Best SD album, some of Donald Fagen's keyboard playing is sublime. Not that anyone sounds too shabby here.

    The first in the trilogy of essential Steely Dan albums: Countdown to Ecstasy, Pretzel Logic, and Katy Lied.
