Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Craig Lytle
Donald Fagen and Walter Becker wrote many outstanding light-rock tunes with a somewhat soulful appeal. This compilation album plays host to quite a few of those songs, among them "Hey Nineteen," "Deacon Blues," and "Black Cow."" The twosome have an uncanny style of conveying their messages in a very overt way without forfeiting the songs' charisma. Of the 12 tracks listed, Steely Dan is responsible for ten and the other two are Donald Fagen selections; both were taken from movie soundtracks, and unfortunately, they do not retain that same sting that the other compositions have.
