    Complex and delightful, showing Fagen as a fully competent musician. Denny Dias delivers the most sublime, elegant solo possibly ever. Jeff Porcaro on drums making it all happen.

    Countdown To Ecstacy was one of the soundtracks of my childhood, and as such, this version just feels wrong...

    I love both, but this is definitely a different tune for sure.

    ( Countdown to Ecstasy CD 'lives' in my car- it is still mind-blowing!)

    Denny Dias NEVER bends strings! Slurs, yes, distortion too ( at times), but not a bender- he fascinates me- perfect match with Jeff Baxter
