"How we do it: First we hook up a sequence of sleek & slinky musical cells over which we sprinkle the most amusing lyrics. Immediately we get on the horn and round up our swinging sidemen, including but not limited to Keith Carlock (drums), Jon Herrington (guitar), Hugh McCracken (guitar), Ted Baker (keyboards), and yours truely, Mssrs. Becker and Fagen on our respective axes. Elliot Scheiner, who is not for nothing the Godfather of 5.1 Surround, does the tracking chores. Next thing you know, the wiggy vocal and stellar solo work are stacked atop the now-realized grooves and harmonies. After mixdown, the finished album reveals to its makers deep subterranean themes and powerful emotional undercurrents that satisfy and surprise at the same time."- Walter Becker and Donald Fagen.
