I guess I'd chalk that up to difference of opinions. Two Against Nature, and Everything Must Go are two collections that I have played over and over, and could probably play again tonight. 

But then again, I own every decade-release of Fagen, and have played those over and over. (Sunken Condos being probably the most lackluster.) And 11 Stacks of Whack (which shows what part of Dan sound that Fagen's releases were missing), and Circus Money

I really don't care if the Dan is "prog" or not. If you can listen to Morph the Cat and not understand how the delicious complexity of the horn arrangement makes a difference from radio pop, then I don't care about how someone would categorize anything. Prog to me is "More to listen to and for". TAN and EMG have that for me. Some bands can actually make me enjoy funk (as well as playing Funk on guitar--which is just FUN!).

Steely Dan (despite not liking their last two albums at all)

^ Same here.....love the Dan but the last 2 albums, while well played and recorded, don't have the same great songs that the earlier ones did.
One does nothing yet nothing is left undone.
