Look, when I was 19 I thought Steely Dan was dad music and sucked. But now I'm 33 and I realize that Steely Dan is the best band of all time. That's just life.

Jerry Seinfeld also wistfully expresses his love of Steely Dan on "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee", so I guess you guys have a lot in common.

Well, first off, Steely Dan is definitely a band (proof: http://www.geocities.ws/sisteralphonso/olddan.html)

I like Reeling in the Years but none of their other stuff really did much for me.

My dad was making fun of his friends for still being into Steely Dan back in like 2002 so obviously I tried to get into them in order to dunk on the old man but eeeh.

Listen to caves of Altamira or whatever.

I used to jam on that while shrooming.

Steely Dan is the musical equivalent of wearing white tubesocks and sandals.

I have all their albums and I will never stop listening.

Steely Dan is music for people who don't listen to jazz. Because once you listen to jazz, you realize just how poo poo Steely Dan Jazz is.

Not sure, but I always liked the novelty of putting the guitar solo at the beginning of the song rather than the end. Plus, Larry Carlton plays his rear end off.

Its about disenchantment with the modern world

I hear my inside
The mechanized hum of another world
Where no sun is shining
No red light flashing
Here in this darkness

That makes sense too. The first few songs on Royal scam are all great but the second half is kinda weak.

Gaucho is such a great song. Too bad they ripped off the melody and Keith Jarrett sued their asses off for it
