3 stars There was a time back in the nineties before I discovered Prog that I bought a lot of greatest hits albums just to check out bands I had heard of but didn't own any of their albums. It was a desperate time for me and I hoped to fill that musical void. Sure I was into and enjoyed the Alternative scene but I was looking for more. Like most of you I find these compilation records pretty useless these days and haven't reviewed very many here, but I thought I would dig this one out in the hopes it might be worth 4 stars to me. Nope ! When it comes to STEELY DAN, SAGA and a few other bands, I can say that i'm not really too into their albums but admire a lot of songs they've created, so yes I thought this "Decade Of Steely Dan" might satisfy me with all those popular tracks.

Like another reviewer mentioned i'm surprised "Dirty Work" isn't on here but most of the hits are.The thing is that these guys have many "best of" albums so you can always find one that works best for your tastes i'm sure. So this has been an enjoyable listen the last couple of days but this is far from essential. Favourite track for me is "Rikki Don't Lose That Number".
