"The original Steely Dan songs are so meticulously arranged and brilliantly played that it's a thrill to hear Walter Becker and Donald Fagen's musical fussiness copied so faithfully. The hands of guitarist Hank Easton channel original Jeff "Skunk" Baxter's licks so well it's scary — to say nothing of his rock-solid copy of Jay Graydon's lead on Peg, 12 bars of the most innovative rock guitar ever recorded. It says something that it takes 15 dedicated people to imitate the sound of a band that consisted of two guys. But that's the beauty of the Dan — and the duty of the Damned."
