Do you agree?

Well, I’ve put a lot of thought into what I’m about to say and I appreciate some of you will disagree with me, or maybe even agree with me. Night and day I’ve been running through all the albums, listening to each of them, comparing etc, looking at their listings of songs trying to decide which, in my opinion, is the best album, the boys at their best, so far.
Maybe a particular track (or tracks) has a great groove, or the lead solo is fantastic, the lyrics entertaining (as is the case in many songs!) or the whole song just hits 'the spot'

Every album has a 'classic' or two, or three, or four etc etc on it, its been a very difficult decision.

Looking back, I think the reason for my choice of 'Best Album' is that it was the second ever album of theirs I bought, after buying 'Eliminator'.
I have a copy of this album on vinyl, 331/3 rpm, in a green, gate fold sleeve. I treasure this one very much, I've even stopped playing now (having this on CD!) to preserve it.
For me every single track on this Album is an absolute classic.

For me, the best ZZ Top album EVER (so far!) is;

TRES HOMBRES

Now I’ve revealed this to you, what is your favourite ZZ Top album (so far!)


My favourite track (so far!):

Cheap Sunglasses (lead guitar solo just melts me! its that sound that gives me goose bumps)

Yes, Deguello is my second favourite album.

Thanks for reading

    Hi there,

    Here are my favorite albums :

    Eliminator - Afterburner - Recycler (The trilogy in fact).

    I know most of you won't agree, but these albums really made me discover ZZ TOP in the 80's.

    Now that I've been practicing the electric guitar for 4 years, with a blues orientation, I appreciate more and more the first albums.

    Antenna was also a good one.

    Good call!, Tejas is a great album! the trouble i now find with deciding which is my fav, is that opinions change all the time, especially mine! No doubt it is impossible to say which is your overall fav album or even fav track, it depends on what is your fav at that time! I can have a 'Top' CD playing consistantly in my car for days or even weeks then you remember another of their CD's and you then listen to that one for ages, very difficult isn't it?

    I really like "Bad Girl" and "Party on the Patio"
