That whole album is filled with cool, chugging, jazzy tracks. My fave's are My Old School (singled out by VEGANGELICA as being tolerable) and Pearl Of the Quarter.

If you want a one-sentence guide to Steely D:-

The early albums are full of rocking songs, dripping with hooklines and melodies (Do It Again), but after the Pretzel Logic album, their songs get more complex and, for me, lose their immediate catchy appeal, even though some people rate Aja as their best album.
