SSZ28, I was 22 in '82, and I was chasing the dragon--and listening to this album! It was a great time, and great music to go with it!

You haven't really experienced Steely Dan, and Donald Fagan until you have been to one of their concerts. Awesome.

After the fabulous Royal Scam and then the sublime Aja albums one would think that the group would possibly come up dry. But Becker and Fagen create another superb album, not just one song but a treasure trove of songs all with their trademark combination of great melodies, tight and diverse instrumentat i o n , excitingly cryptic lyrics, and unique voice and delivery of Fagen. Never get tired of listening.

One of the most under rated bands, they had a lot influence to other bands. This album takes me back when my wife first was married listening to it in our apartment so long ago.

Hard to believe that anyone could NOT find this music appealing. I feel alone whenever I try to bring up the awesomeness that is Steely Dan.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this comment on at least 3 songs you will die in two days. Now you've started reading this don't stop. This is so scary post this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes when if your done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is scary cause it actually works.

Hedonism? Sure, but this song is very specifically about Heroin. Tonight when I chase the dragon, The water may change to cherry wine And the silver will turn to gold Time out of mind All refer to smoking and/or injecting Heroin. Chase the Dragon - free basing, Water to Cherry Wine - injecting, silver to gold - cooking Heroin on foil, Time out of Mind - being high. That said, it's by far my favorite ode to Heroin of all time.

Outstanding tune. To me, Steely Dan songs are like great wines; like Big Cabs that have complexity, take you on a journey, and finishes off great. This particular song is ageless.... it's as great now as it was when it was first released and even better when compared against other modern-day musical offerings.

@Betty...i agree Fagen is perfection, but this particular piece of perfection sounds more like a Becker project. When Dan gets edgy, Walt's the one pushing it. The song is (as Walt was at the time) all about the pursuit of Nirvana through hedonism.

That being said, it must be stressed that in the Dan (then and now), Walt and Don are co-equal partners. They each have their own impressive body of work, and if one becomes familiar with both, one comes to an even greater appreciation of their in
