3 stars The music character based on the rhythm and blues might already have been established to some degree as their styles. It was about at 1967 that two people (Fagen and Becker) met in student's age. It liked Jazz and blues more than the lock, and they wrote and accumulated the tune in amateur bands. The music that they created was not already a simple tune. For one thing, it was in the content of a flow of the complex code and poetic lyrics about their charms. Therefore, it is guessed that the activity of their music did not develop at once. However, they got the job of Music of the movie etc.Men who establish the shape of the band gradually meet producer's Gary Katz. This event will greatly expand the width of their activities. It settles down in recording musician's shape the form though they were being offered the place where the tune can be created. It was concretely surely expressed and their music invented directionality as the band though they were forecasting neither various guests nor tours, etc.Their senses can already be found though this album is their debut albums. The feeling of the chord progression and the rhythm gives birth to a peculiar flow as there are an element and the blues of pop in the basis. Their styles have already been established and if their music characters are pursued, might be almost blocked in this album. There might have been an environment and a fate for it to besiege them that they were able to create the tune freely to some degree. Everything starts from this album. And, Fagen and Becker become units of two people and create a masterpiece further.
