Musically, Countdown to Ecstasy is even stronger than the Dan's terrific debut, pushing the musical envelope with more complex jazz harmonies and intricate time signatures, and carrying their lyrics into even more shadowy realms peppered with sci-fi imagery and street-level slang. The songs are stunning, from the opening blast of "Boddhisattva," a Zen boogie fueled by Denny Dias's and Jeff Baxter's angular, bopping guitars, to the postnuclear apocalypse of "King of the World. Most true Steely Dan fans consider this album to be stronger than their first, even though it didn't sell as well (at least not initially). And who knows why it didn't. I'm sure part of the reason is that neither of the singles released could really be described as a "hit", not compared to "Do It Again" or "Reelin' in the Years.

Additional personnel: Ben Benay (acoustic guitar); Rick Derringer (slide guitar); Ernie Watts, Johnny Rotella, Lanny Morgan, Bill Perkins (saxophone); Victor Feldman (vibraphone, marimba, percussion); Ray Brown (12-string bass).
