The Tops rule. What about I Thank You,She Loves My Automobile, I'm Bad,I'm Nationwide,A Fool For Your Stockings,Cheap Sunglasses and that says everything...It's boogie-rock all the way....It's cult. Cheers

All of this stuff is ZZ all the way, just like all other hits. Nice album from hard melody makers.

This is...top to bottom, ZZ's best record pre-"Eliminator". Pick it up if you don't have it, because if you have it, then you already know.

Along with Tres Hombres, this is my favorite ZZ Top album. And it pisses me off that it isn't available on Apple Music. I wonder why - I know for a long time it was unavailable on CD due to some copyright dispute between the estates of Elmore James and some other old bluesman (Robert Jonshon?) regarding "Dust My Broom." Maybe that's why the band never did covers in the studio before. Anyway, after a long hiatus (especially for the time), during which we now know Frank Beard dealt with a heroin problem, the three amigos return, and by now, they've succeeded in creating their own parallel universe that is way cooler than the one we have to live in, full of cool old cars, hot but trashy women, greasy food, snazzy clothes, cheap sunglasses and endless blacktop. Some new elements are starting to creep in, a touch of synths here, some blaring sax there, but this is still purely ZZ Top. By now, they're fully embracing their goofball, tongue-in-cheek sense of humor.

Like Tejas, Deguello is not a particularly heavy album, even by ZZ Top standards, but it really doesn't matter. My favorites are "I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide" (with that weird turnaround that always throws me off the beat), "Low Down In The Streets," "Cheap Sunglasses" and a dark-horse pick in "Hi-Fi Mama."
