1 drmilktruck 9 months ago Last discussion question of the night, I promise.I love Steely Dan and have since high school. However, while many insist Aja is the peak of their music, I prefer all of their previous five albums to that one, especially Pretzel Logic. Nothing against Aja, but compared to the others I find it over-produced, sterile and much of a sameness. The others are more varied, interesting and adventurous. Similarly my favorite Bruce Springsteen album is Darkness on the Edge of Town.Do you prefer an artist's "lesser" works to their supposed "greater" ones?
