Steely Dan: Countdown To Ecstasy (MCA)
Mick Gold, Let It Rock, December 1973
STEELY DAN IS a vehicle for the songwriting talents of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, who entered the music world via a two-year gig with Jay and the Americans. They say they dont regret that period, but since theyve lifted their name from The Naked Lunch theyve clearly been through a few changes. Not that this album displays any of Lunchs aggressive weirdness.
