Both. They should have done a collaboration album.

Another good collaboration would be Magma and Minnie Ripperton. Her album 'Come to my garden' weirdly reminds me of Magma, like a software, feminine version.

I hear what you mean about Minnie Ripperton and Magma. A collaboration between her and the Magma-related Offering would have worked really well. They both have those soulful and jazzy qualities.
Since brevity is the soul of wit, I would be brief if not for my witlessness.

Not a huge fan of either, but De Futura > (Reelin in the Years + Rikki) so Magma gets my vote LOL

Nobody in Steely Dan dressed like this!

Ha! broke the 19-19 tie! 

Granted, I've not see Steely Dan in concert, but the band doesn't stand out in any way for me.

I don't listen to studio Magma much, but love watching them perform, both online and live. Their concert at the Psycho Las Vegas (2017) was one of the most AMAZING performance I've ever seen!

Steely Dan for me. I don't listen to either band that much but the general feeling of Dan's music is just lovely and warm. I can never tire of the lyrics either.

Most definitely Magma. I never liked Steely Dan much and am really surprised that a drummer like Steve Gadd ever teamed up with them. His talents are in my opinion wasted in the band.

Some Steely Dan songs are ok, a few Magma songs not so.
