You’re going to shake your head at this statement: Guitar Hero and Rock Band exposed me to Steely Dan.
It took a couple really funky songs to turn me onto one of the most skilled bands of all time. “Can’t Buy A Thrill” is the first studio album by Steely Dan and it’s a classic.
I’ve seen the vinyl hanging up on the walls in Tunes, the music shop in Northfield, NJ that I frequent so I figured if this album was hanging up next to “Sgt. Peppers” and “Darkside” and other great albums that it must be a classic. And yea, I was right.
“Do It Again,” is one of Steely Dan’s biggest songs and it opens up the album. It has a jazzy feel, kind of giving off the feel you get when at a jazz dive bar. “Reelin’ In the Years” is the other big song off this album as it features a more traditional rock sound.
Other notable songs include “Only A Fool” and “Fire in the Hole.”
