I have heard of Steely Dan, but I have not heard of his album Pretzel Logic. I always liked his name Steely, but I thought Dan was a funny last name. This is their third of four albums in the list. I hope this is better than their last album in the list.
“Rikki Don’t Lose That Number” is a song I have heard before. It played on the radio when I was a child. I actually listened to the radio when I was a kid, but as I got older I stopped listening to it and I found music through other avenues. I found it through friends, clubs, magazines and the internet. I wonder if Rikki lost the number or not. I guess I will never know.
The rest of the album is so different than the last album Countdown to Ecstasy from Steely Dan. It is more pop jazz than jazz rock. I think it is a good album, but it does not have any other single songs that deserve high recognition. 7/10.
