I have to admit I am not a great ZZ Top fan and haven't really listened to anything by them for many years so I was quite surprised how much I enjoyed listening to this album.
There were times when I thought this is just typical ZZ Top and it does northing for me but there were quite a few tracks such as Jesus Just Left Chicago, La Grange and Have You Heard? that had me pretty gripped.
I am not sure I am about to become a big ZZ Top fan but I think once I have made my way through these 500 albums I will come back and give this one another listen as I have a feeling it might grow on me.
Favourite Track: La Grange
Why Does This Review Exist?
I am working my way through Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of all time list and reviewing each album.
- Each album is listened to only once.
- The album is used as background music while working so how much attention I pay to it will depend on what I am doing at the time.
- I do no research about the album or the artist.
- The review is a one off, one moment opinion that may change with further listening.
