He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again, you might say he found a key for every door. When he first came to the mountains, his life was far away on the road and hanging by a song. The shadows from the starlight are softer than a lullaby. Rocky Mountain high, Colorado. Rocky Mountain high. He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below, he saw everything as far as you can see.
And they say that Album) got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun, and he lost a friend, but kept the memory. Now he walks in quiet solitude, the forest and the streams, seeking grace in every step he takes. His sight is turned inside himself, to try and understand the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake.
You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply. Now his life is full of wonder, but his heart still knows some fear, of LP simple thing he can not comprehend. Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more, more people, more scars upon the land. Once again I see him walking, once again I hear him talking to the stars he makes and asking them the bus fare. In the end up in his office, in the end a quiet cough is all he has to show, he lives in New York City.

I am not yet well acquainted with I admire these guys immensely and Pretzel Logic is a fine album. I am not yet well acquainted with their entire opus to rank it relative to other albums, but "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" is just one gem on it, so decide for yourself.
See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. For many, "Pretzel Logic" is Steely Dan's best album. Funnily enough, of their "big seven" albums between andit is my least favourite.
The songs are shorter but not necessarily poppier, in some ways I just find them a little less outstandingly brilliant than on some of the others. Maybe I am being nitpicking, after all, this is still a solidly good album. I need to re-assess it. Rikki Don't Lose That Number 2. Night By Night 3. Barrytown 5. East St. Louis Toodle-Oo 6. Parker's Band 7. Through With Buzz 8. Pretzel Logic 9. With A Gun Charlie Freak Monkey In Your Soul "Rikki Don't lost That Number", with its rhythmic, syncopated opening, is a marvellous opener, however, and "Night By Night" is a delicious piece of horn-driven funk rock.
There is a confident, smoky jazzy feel to it. The effervescent but tuneful "Barrytown" is captivating. In fact, these first four tracks have been superb. It is in the middle part of the album that things fall down a bit, for me, just a little, LP. Louis Toodle-Oo" is a ragtime-esque jazzy instrumental which is pleasant enough, admittedly, but it ain't no "Reelin' In The Years". The title track is more like it, though, The Dan play the blues on the verses, before reverting to typically Steely Dan on the chorus.
One of the album's best cuts, this one. You know, I am listening to this stuff in It is already forty-four years old, yet it doesn't really sound dated at all. The world was a totally different place inyet music like this was way ahead of its time. There is some seriously good stuff early on in this album, but the second half is somewhat patchy. For me, anyway. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Otherwise, I love it. One of the very best.
Load more international reviews. Excellent cd. Its "Steely Dan" after all,i mean it just goes without saying anything,way ahead of there time as a band,and musicians. Their third album is the one with the shorter tracks. The best known classic 'Rikki don't lose that number' is the exception. All the other tracks prove that short can be beautiful too.
Love this album,in an era of glam,programmers and metal rubbish this stood out like a sore thumb for its brilliance and jazzy originality.
A timeless classic bought to replace a worn out vinyl. There are few better albums out there. Get your copy as soon as you can and prepare to be amazed. Wonderful, huge Steely Dan fan for years, have this in original vinyl. A great Steely Dan LP with all the usual session suspects. Not an Aja or Gaucho, but a must for your collection. I bought this album on cd, despite owning the original on vinyl, after hearing the Silver Sun cover of "Barrytown" on the "OldSkoolHooligans" t-shirt website.
