One of the bands that were majorly effected by the emergence of MTV, much to the detriment of their music. Still their early work puts ZZ Top amongst my favorites.

From Fischman
The epitome of Texas blues rock boogie delivered with a very solid attitude... then degenerated into MTV schlock.

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

From AAL2014
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.

From beekay
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.

Stick with the early, more blues-influenced albums.

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