If you're someone who likes having a good time, then Steely Dan might be the ideal band. With their funky, upbeat music, these guys have managed to make quite an impression. Their discography is surprisingly decent and exciting; all of the SD albums that were released in the 70s are worth listening. Highly recommended!

Can't Buy a Thrill and Pretzel Logic are among my favorite albums of all time. Almost everything of theirs is worth hearing, including all their now-nine studio albums, and a bunch of fine non-canonical material.

It takes a few listens but, when you finally get it, it's a rewarding experience. Very talented band led by two talented songwriters, Donald Fagen & Walter Becker. Definitely worth checking out

Steely Dan's music is so complicated and full of stuff that is only noticeable after a couple listens. I love their jazzy and funky elements.

Virtually unrivalled string of masterpieces from 1972-1980. Beautiful and brilliantly immaculately crafted stuff.

One of my favorite bands of all time, but it is obvious that the albums after Aja weren't very good. While not bad, they possibly got too grown up for me.
