Countdown to Ecstasy songs Product Information
Countdown to Ecstasy album for sale by Steely Dan was released Nov 17, 1998 on the MCA (USA) label. Riding high on the success of their debut CAN'T BUY A THRILL, Steely Dan put together what was, on the surface, their most commercial and straightforward album. "Bodhisattva," for example, which opens the album, works a driving, jump-blues groove that seems at odds with the band's laid-back, jazz inclinations Countdown to Ecstasy songs. The heavy, bluesy stomp of "The Boston Rag" and the slinky, edgy boogie of "Show Biz Kids" may make it seem as though Steely Dan was vying for favor with their more roots-oriented pop-rock contemporaries. Countdown to Ecstasy CD music contains a single disc with 8 songs. ...See Full Description

Though not as commercially successful as their debut album, "Countdown To Ecstasy" is considered the album that initially hooked many a hardcore Dan fan.

||The first fully-fledged 'Dan' album|
This album represents the beginning in my view of Becker and Fagen's real musical project. After Can't Buy a Thrill, the uniquely quirky, complex musicality that they really wished to explore was brought to the fore.

My favorite SD album. Got hooked on Razor Boy,drawn in by Pearl of the Quarter, and gutted by Show Biz Kids and one of my favorite Steely Dan songs-King of the (Freakin) World.

Well I ordered this album from the columbia record club. How long ago was that?This past weekend I was at the New Orleans jazzfest.

It was apparent from their initial effort (Can't Buy A Thrill") that Becker, Fagen, & Co. were going to be a prominent force on the pop music scene.
