A great band who didn't stick to their original sound and got away with it.

While I'm not any big fan of ZZ Top, I have a ton of respect for any band (3 piece or otherwise) who stays together with the same lineup for essentially their whole career. ZZ Top is a very solid and influential Texas blues band and they don't pretend to be anything else. If this was a US-based website, they would probably be rated a little higher, even though they aren't everybody's cup of tea.

I like the bar-boogie ZZ Top over the MTV superstars.

Once they got into the MTV era,their albums became over produced. If you buy any of the early CDs, make sure they are the original mix versions. They were
remixed with more echo when they first came out on CD, to try and make them sound like the newer stuff. The result sounds like they are being broadcast on an early 60's, boss jock AM radio station. AWFUL!

Got to agreed (mostly) with the previous comments. The early albums are far superior to the later ones but check out Rythmeen which is a return to the early stuff.

Their early albums are tremendous work indeed. It is too bad the later albums don't stack up with their better work.
