Critically acclaimed second album!
Countdown to Ecstasy is the second studio album by American rock group Steely Dan, released in July 1973 by ABC Records. It was recorded at Caribou Ranch in Nederland and The Village Recorder in Santa Monica. After the departure of vocalist David Palmer, the group recorded the album with Donald Fagen singing lead on all the songs.
Although it was a critical success, the album failed to generate a hit single, and consequently charted at only No. 35 on the Billboard 200. It was eventually certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), having shipped 500,000 copies in the United States. Well received upon its release, Countdown to Ecstasy received perfect scores from music critics in retrospective reviews.
"Countdown to Ecstasy is the only time Steely Dan played it relatively straight, and its eight songs are rich with either musical or lyrical detail that their album rock or art rock contemporaries couldn't hope to match." — AllMusic
SHM-SACD format (fully compatible with standard SACD player, but it does not play on standard CD players) that enhances the audio-resolution. Japanese pressing.
