Great album by a great band. Very radio friendly songs. "I wanna Drive you Home" has amazing slide and Gibbons changes keys with pure finess!!!! This record has beautiful guitar tones, and the production is awesome for the 80's. This was the last of the boogie woogie they were known for. The following records were digital and MTV based. GEt this record!!!! A+

The best Top album i think Its so hard and Leila are relaxed classics so cool, of course the rest is amazing home to some classic Top too. Start with this one if you dont own a zz record yet the perfect mix of their 70's and 80's style 9/10

"Tube Snake Boogie" leaves nothing to the imagination with the overt title & lyrics but rocks anyway. "Pearl Necklace" with it's opening, snide laughter always makes me chuckle & has a killer groove that smokes, while the album closing romp "Party on the Patio" always satisfies with it's quirkiness. Pick this up for those 3 tracks.

This is a transitional album between the straight-ahead southern blues rock of their first decade and the synth-driven AOR of the Eliminator to Antenna era, so it's often overlooked. Nevertheless, it has some pretty good tracks and it's worth a listen for any fan of the band.

An album that has an AORish Southern Blues Rock feel even though the songs are more into the early sound of the band but for me this was like the pre warning of what the band was going to do next in its music direction on its following 80's releases...tracks 1,2,3,4(nice) & 5 are my faves...84/100
