let's talk about the music:
Even under torture I couldn't say,
which of the first 7 albums of this unique
band is the best, they all belong to a thing
called heaven.
But maybe this is the best!
(o.k., torture me further on).

One of the things that hits home first, is that all the members of Steely Dan function as a single minded and cohesive unit, creating an unmistakable sound, one that sets aside nearly all accepted musical conventions, including literal lyrics ... creating an open-ended enthusiastic atmosphere that harbors the ideas and attitudes of the Beat Poets, giving them a larger than life place to live, and one that is more accessible given the fluid interplay of vocal and musical harmonies. And that in a nutshell is the essence of Steely Dan, one clever, imaginative ensemble of sound that defies logic, resounding in the listener’s head as perhaps the most wonderful collection of phrases and notes ever strung together.

Pretzel Logic, as with all previous works by Steely Dan is filled with banter, obscure inside jokes, and satirical, if not pointed reflections of the ever calculating Fagen and Becker. These sly geniuses mange to make their offbeat romantic characters seem larger than life, while flavoring each track with a warmth and texture that conveys a sense of place and being.

Without a doubt, Steely Dan are the most original band ever to walk the planet, where 30 years out, one forever remembers where they were, and what they were doing when “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number” filtered across the airwaves, colliding headlong with all we thought we knew and trusted.

On the ABC 1st pressing (black label) should the 'A2' noted above actually be an 'AZ'? Looks like allan zentz' initials perhaps?
