Queen were deadly. Both in their ridiculous hard rock mode (fucking “Ogre Battle”!) and in ridiculous stadium rock mode. Steely Dan are a pox.
Can't comment. Think any traditional "band" form carry-on in 2019... goodnight.No shortage of Steely Dans in 2019; Vulpeck, Lemon Twigs, Foxygen, they're basically the step after math rock, you either go steely dan or krautrock. There hasn't been another Freddie Mercury though.
Genuinely think they are an interesting band that held a strong narrative throughout their discography - and hey, pick your favourite.No, it's not their best by any means. But still great. I've never really listened to any of the later ones but Fagen's solo album The Nightfly is excellent to.
But really.. If you don't enjoy the song My Old School.... Something amiss there.
The Dan >> Queen. Obviously.

I take your point about the cool weird uncle but when you get to 18 the uncle who lets you drink around his gaff seems less cool when he's jailed for following a schoolgirl home. Nah, Steely Dan are frustrated virgin music, good at a certain point in your life if you find them but I wasn't aware of them as a pretentious teenager and they just sound lame to me at this age.Can't comment.

Haha, what an obnoxious shit I am.
Good live music never goes astray, and that can take any form, I guess.
I'm sure there are some interesting bands out there. I see good live rock or punk bands live, but I rarely listen to it at home.
Worse thing, this isn't close to being the best Steely Dan album, but it's still like some evil drug working positively in your system.
Ah yeah, I see a big crossover between Todd Rundgren and Steely Dan, or more their fans I guess. As for the Steely Dan/ Queen comparison, it was part of a larger argument Nate Champion selectively ignored.Must check out vulpeck.... I like foxygen & lemon twigs. I don't hear a whole lot of steely Dan in either of those, just lots of Todd Rundgren.
I don't think the Queen, Steely Dan comparison is a good one. I love both bands but they're quite different. Queen were more accessible, a band of the people. The muso element of Steely Dan tends to turn off the casual listener. Their appeal is more selective...as they say in spinal tap.
