4 stars What more can I say about this highly influential band's debut album that hasn't already been said? Well, in my opinion it was great start for Steely Dan. Their unique super blend of jazz, rock, R&B and pop should not be missed.

The songwriting is very literate, inventive, dark and sometimes twisted. Apart from the classic tracks the rest of the music here is really, very good and the studio perfectionism paid off well. There's lot's of nice piano, organ, guitar fillings and solos as well as fabulous touches from the saxophone and flugelhorn.

"Do It Again" must be one of the most well known tracks by the band. There's some superb musicianship here and a cool electric sitar solo. "Kings" is another favourite of mine, "Only A Fool Would Say That" also superb. "Reeling In The Years" is another well known classic as well as a main highlight.

The 70's was a special decade and Steely Dan continued to consistently release brilliant music throughout. Their very best albums were yet to come. 4 stars.
