Background: Released in 1974, Pretzel Logic was the third album by Steely Dan.

The album reached #8 on the U.S. album chart, helped by the #4 single, “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number.” gave Pretzel Logic a 5 star review:

Countdown to Ecstasy wasn’t half the hit that Can’t Buy a Thrill was, and Steely Dan responded by trimming the lengthy instrumental jams that were scattered across Countdown and concentrating on concise songs for Pretzel Logic. While the shorter songs usually indicate a tendency toward pop conventions, that’s not the case with Pretzel Logic. Instead of relying on easy hooks, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen assembled their most complex and cynical set of songs to date. Dense with harmonics, countermelodies, and bop phrasing, Pretzel Logic is vibrant with unpredictable musical juxtapositions and snide, but very funny, wordplay. … Steely Dan made more accomplished albums than Pretzel Logic, but they never made a better one.
