There are two good songs on this album -- "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" and "Pretzel Logic" (which is the name of the "over a long time ago" song).
The rest of it is too surface, too glossy, doesn't have the cutting quality you expect from Steely Dan. The playing and production are sophisticated, but there’s something missing. Passion, humor, something. I feel the monkey in your soul? WTF?
