Steely Dan. Countdown to Ecstasy. Countdown to Ecstasy is the only time Steely Dan played it relatively straight, and its eight songs are rich with either musical or lyrical detail that their album rock or art rock contemporaries couldn't hope to match.

Musically, Countdown to Ecstasy is even stronger than the Dan's terrific debut, pushing the musical envelope with more complex jazz harmonies and intricate time signatures, and carrying their lyrics into even more shadowy realms peppered with sci-fi imagery and street-level slang. The songs are stunning, from the opening blast of "Boddhisattva," a Zen boogie fueled by Denny Dias's and Jeff Baxter's angular, bopping guitars, to the postnuclear apocalypse of "King of the World. Most true Steely Dan fans consider this album to be stronger than their first, even though it didn't sell as well (at least not initially). And who knows why it didn't. I'm sure part of the reason is that neither of the singles released could really be described as a "hit", not compared to "Do It Again" or "Reelin' in the Years.
