From Fischman
Slick overproduced faux ZZ. It's not quite a complete abandonment of all that was right and holy about ZZ Top, but close.

ZZ Top acending to the top of their carreer with a mix between blues and rock. This album contains the top hits "Sharp Dressed Man", "Gimme All Your Lovin" and "Legs". 9 good songs from 11 tracks provide a good listening experience. (album rating: 68,64 %)

Great hard diving rock from Texas. Flow of tracks is excellent, particularly the first three on side 1. The three guys create a big sound considering the year of release, although no reference is made to synths on the sleeve notes they are being used quite minimalistically, possibly controlled by a bass pedal board. Difficult to listen to this without getting off your ass and moving to that driving beat! Sharp Dressed Man and Legs are my top tracks.

Combining the monotonous, repetitive beats of New Wave and the vapid sexism of hair metal, this corporate sellout drudge...

...is ZZ Top's best album and irresistibly fun to listen to.

ZZ top's most successful record. It really is all very enjoyable, with, gimme all your lovin', sharp dressed man, and, legs, the standouts. Good time rock'n'roll boogie with a contemporary edge. Good stuff.

Non stop rock filler sounds like an AcDc album with some blues thrown in I like it.

From Rich150
My introduction to ZZ Top so the change in style mentioned in previous comments isn't a problem for me. Good, catchy, rock 'n' roll. Love it! I chose Gimme All Your Lovin as the tracl to listen to on the rock 'n' rollercoaster at Universal , Orlando!!!!!

From mtr1979
Not the ZZ Top I listened to in my youth in the 1970s. Seems top-heavy to me, with a fair amount of filler. I prefer the bluesier ZZ Top.

Full of great songs. I love the way these guys carry themselves.
