"Fifteen years later, we find out who put the edge into Steely Dan... Becker brings back everything fans cherished about Steely Dan: the desperate characters and elliptical narratives, the jazz harmonies and the ingeniously warped structures. And it turns out he has exactly the right voice for his own words: a groan that's jaded, long-suffering, cranky and shrewd...He's still smart, still a wiseguy, still as cagey as any songwriter in pop."
