I liked some of their work and Pretzel Logic was a good album but I can't get past the fact that Jeff "Skunk" Baxter is a defense consultant who advises the Pentagon and Congress and NASA on missile defense and national security. I just can't wrap my rock 'n roll mind around that. It would take some serious pretzel logic.
Convoluted thinking that is anything but logical, usually used to attempt to support a point that is insupportable.
Pretzel Logic is a Steely Dan album originally released in 1974. The album's opening song, "Rikki Don't Lose That Number", became the band's biggest hit, reaching #4 on the charts soon after the release of the album. The album itself went gold, and then platinum, reaching #8 on the charts.
