This Message Edited On Great first review Tusk. I might check this out. From your review, I gather that this is more Tres Hombres dirty blues rockish than crappy eighties pop stuff. Album Rating: 4. This is definately more Tres Hombre-ish than Eliminator-ized I think everyone in the CR thread would enjoy it.
I'd even go so far as to say that its a bit dirtier than Tres Hombres, just by its sound, its 2 year earlier release date, and the completely unabashed blues feel that ZZ Top slowly but surely cruised away from.
I noticed several things I could do to improve my review, and ill be sure to take your advice as well, Iluvatar. Didn't ZZ Top re-mix this to be more Eliminator-esque? If not, I'm gonna get it.
Billy Gibbons said that this album didn't have any bass on it.

Digging: Maieutiste - Veritas. Deserves the same love as the more well known ZZ Top albums. Album Rating: 3. It's a good album, though.
Album Rating: 2. First Album, simple name, simple concept. ZZ Top, a band out of Texas, had been playing together for two years before getting the.. The album starts off innocently enough, Somebody Else Been Shaking Your Tree is a fine blues song, with tasty Gibbons guitar licks, and another classic Hill bassline.. That theme comes back in famous tracks such as Tush, Pearl Necklace, and La Grange on later albums to scrape the barest tip of the iceberg ; as well as Bedroom Thang late in this, their first album experience.
Interestingly, out of all of those, Bedroom Thang is easily as catchy as Tush, as bluesy as La Grange, and as innocently devilish as Pearl Necklace. Brown Sugar , on the other hand, sounds like a much more mature blues song, beginning much like a classic blues song, before an explosion into the heavy blues rock they helped pioneer. This is one of the better, more solid songs on the album, if not the discography. Goin' Down To Mexico ends up feeling similarly mature, but its got a bit of a pop feel, which takes away from the blues most of ZZ Top based their music on at this point, while hinting at things to come.
I would probably classify Neighbor, Neighbor in this category as well.. The guitar in Squank manages to come off sounding like an intoxicated Clapton; however, the effect manages to stay clean, and Dusty Hill plays as good on the bass he ever did..
Old Man is very different from the other songs on the album, it comes off sounding like a slow Skynyrd song, and they do a bang-up job of it. Joel Whitburn. Copyright Martin C. ZZ Top.

Namespaces Article Talk. We took the studio on as an extension of the stage show. The basics were all of us playing together in one room, but we didn't want to turn our backs on contemporary recording techniques. To give our sound as much presence and support as possible, we became a little more than a three piece with the advantages of overdubbing.
It was the natural kind of support — some rhythm guitar parts, a little bit of texture. That was about it. AllMusic retrospectively gave it 3 stars, stating: "ZZ Top's First Album may not be perfectly polished, but it does establish their sound, attitude, and quirks. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
