Every 1970s hipster with a waterbed seemed to own this album without realizing that Donald Fagen's cutting barbs were aimed directly at them. Jazzier and with less blistering rock guitar than before, the eternal hit "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" took its piano hook from Horace Silver's "Song For My Father." "Any Major Dude Will Tell You" is an unheralded gem.
