I've seen Steely Dan a handful of times since their reunion back in the early 90's. The only time I was disappointed with them was at a show in Atlantic City about five years ago. I don't know if it was the band or the venue, but the concert came across as a bit sterile. They have been playing around here regularly at an outdoor venue that I usually avoid. But recently, I discovered that they were having a show at smaller theatre and managed to score a great seat at the last minute. It was great. Sure, they do have a slick, standardized show, but they still sound great and I really enjoy hearing them live.

Well, if they ever come back to the UK I will be there like a shot. It's an awfully long time since they were last here in '09.
