Not yet. I feel like I'm going to be disappointed in anything else.

He's consistently a quality artist. The romantic in you would love his first two albums too: both similar themes. Especially the final trio of Wild/Innocent/E Street Shuffle.

I grew up with just my mother, and she never bought albums - only singles. And my earliest memory is the late 70's, so we're talking mostly disco stuff. It's quite hilarious now that I think back on it. I remember Stayin' Alive in heavy rotation on the record player.

Then I got more exposure in 1981 thanks to MTV (you know, when they actually played fucking music). That channel was so much fun back then.

The first one is a mixed bag, IMO, but yes, Screwtape should definitely check out The Wild, The Innocent, And The E Street Shuffle next.

Indeed. My father for the epic fail. He pretty much only cares about sports. Which isn't bad, just mix it up sometimes.

I give my mother credit: I got into two artists thanks to her - U2 and Bruce Springsteen. She owned The Best of 1980-1990 and Born to Run.

But if I watched MTV today, I'd be enjoying classics like:

Apple bottom jeans
Boots with the fur
The whole club
Was looking at her
She hit the floor
Next thing you know
Shawty got low
Low, low, low, low, low, low

And an episode of Real World.

Automatic For The People is pretty meh to me. I do agree about Animals though.

On this list, yes. I'd say it's interchangeable with Automatic, but pretty static in that general area. It's just one of those special nostalgia records for me.

Aja....awesome.

My parents listened to a lot of Motown, which I'm thankful for. They liked the Beatles a lot, too. Besides that, some 70's rock from my Dad, meh. I got into music big-time on my own, basically. Well, my best friend's brother used to listen to a lot of college radio, so, got early exposure to "alternative" music.......

ugh. i miss mtv. i can't remember when exactly we got cable, but i remember watching friday night videos when i was a kid.

then i jumped ship to vh1 in the mid 90s cuz, you know, they showed videos. but now they are just one giant reality tv station.

as for the music i grew up on, it was soul music, classic rock (although back then it was just rock, lol), some prog stuff - both my parents like various prog artists, and then all the big 80s artists. when i was a kid, i thought new moon on monday was by david bowie

Never been a big Steely Dan fan myself, although I like most of the well-known songs.
