3 stars Of all the early classic Steely Dan albums I think this is my least favourite. Not sure why, maybe it just has less memorable numbers than the others. Good tracks are the opener, "Show Biz Kids", and "Pearl of the Quarter", which is my personal fav here. This is weaker in my mind than the pure all over greatness of their first release or THE ROYAL SCAM. It is not a bad album, just not a great album. Maybe 5th or 6th on my Steely Dan list somewhere around the level of GAUCHO. Thus I can reward it with only 3 out of 5 stars.
