Eliminator by ZZ Top
From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
Eliminator” introduced the world to one of rock’s most unique sounds from one of rock’s most unique bands, ZZ Top. Past albums like “Tres Hombres” or “Deguello” had firmly established the band as a major draw, but it was with this 1983 album that the band first used an appealing blend of technology that was perfectly topped onto their trademark R&B/Delta blues roots.
The vocals and bass of Dusty Hill are as rough as the Texas sand, matched only by that of Billy Gibbons (who was a favorite guitarist of Jimi Hendrix), backboned by Frank Beard’s disciplined drumming. All of this makes for a tightly wound musicianship that never suffers from “Eliminator”‘s synthesized element. The album spawned several hits, notably ‘Legs,’ ‘Sharp Dressed Man,’ and ‘Gimme All Your Lovin’. ‘Got Me Under Pressure’ is just as legendary, being an enduring ZZ Top favorite. The one-of-a-kind ‘Thug’ meanwhile is a darker tale, and features an incredinbly funky bass texture, while the likes of ‘TV Dinners’ and the incredibly eye-roll inducing ‘I Got the Six’ are somewhat less serious, but just as memorable. ‘I Need You Tonight’ however is surprisingly sympathetic and features some of Gibbons’ best guitar work.
Although “Eliminator” became one the 80s most recognizable efforts, it finally gave ZZ Top the worldwide success they’d deserved since the early 70s. It is very much a male-ego album, containing the brilliant arrogance and flashiness that made ZZ Top so great in the first place.
