  • Steely Dan is awesome!

    By Musicman279
    Steely Dan is truly an amazing band and this album really shows it. This is a great example of classic 70s rock and if you haven't already picked up this album, do it! Especially if you love classic rock!
  • Fantastic 70's!

    By Nick Christopherson
    Love this album!
  • Elliott Randall !!!!!

    By oldandslow19
    In your info on this Album you wrongfully credited Denny Dias as the lead player on "Reeling in the years"…My friend that was Elliot Randall and no one else!! one of the greatest moments in history!!
  • Midnight Cruiser

    By Charpainian
    They didn’t just play songs, they told stories. Good stories. Take a deep breath and let it stick to you ribs. You’ll be so happy you did.
  • Superb, but not among siblings.

    By emo_dad420
    This album is an absolute masterpiece, but it's nowhere near as good as most other Steely Dan records. However, that's not something bad about this album; it's something supernatural about the likes of Royal Scam, Aja, and Gaucho, the holy trinity of jazz-rock. But Can't Buy A Thrill is nothing less than fantastic. Particularly "Do It Again" and "Reelin' In The Years" stand out as genuine classics in the Steely Dan catalogue.
  • Greatness

    By Kitten Bush
    I have never heard a jazz artist quite like them love it.
  • Phenomenal Debut

    By polar bear tony
    What a great first record! Do It Again was the first single and established S D as an electric (some might say eccentric) musical force. Reeling In The Years is a real straight ahead rocker, Dirty Work is a plaintive tune detailing the old "can't live with 'em or without 'em" quandary, Kings is a political statement that really said it all back then. All in all a super first record and the ones that have followed ain't bad either.
  • One of My Top Ten Albums of All Time!

    By GaryDavidProject
    Love this record, and it is the only one that has this extraordinary blend of pop/rock/jazz. The Dan went in a jazzier direction after this, with some great records, but they're not pop rock masterpieces like Thrill. Couldn't disagree more with the iTunes album review when it calls David Palmer's contribution a "flaw". Wish his influence was on all the rest of the Dan's records.
  • Once in a blue moon

    By Greenie512
    does a sound come out of your speakers/headphones/car radio that is so unusual, so unique, so "unheard" before, that you know immediately you're in the presence of something destined to carve out a space in your musical backbone to last a lifetime. There was no doubt about that when Steely Dan appeared with this album. The chorus of "Midnight Cruiser" while not as familiar as others on this album is rock solid.
  • Most under appreciated well known album

    By Funkybluejazz
    This is the album that most people know Steely Dan for, and contains three of its most well known songs. However, the album itself is underapreciated. If you are looking to buy those three singles, I suggest buying the album. it's worth the extra couple of bucks. The review states that the album has "at times undecided direction" in a negitive way, but that is the beauty of this album. It's one of those rare beauties that refuses to be classified as one genre or another. Instead, it drifts between pop, rock, jazz, and even a little country/western. The Itunes review also points out the albums "shifting vocals" as a negitive, but again I claim this to be a strong point of the album. The shifts in the vocal's range and tambre allow the listener to come back to it again and again. How many point to Pink Floyd's The Wall and claim that it's shifting vocals dectract from the overall quality of the album? In both cases, shifting makes the album what it is.
