Sorry Bob, but you have not heard 'Rhythmeen', which blows this cd away. From this one, I do like 'Lovething, My Heads in MS, and Burger Man. However, Rhythmeen rocks the way they used to--their best effort since Eliminator-- and somebody needs to put it up on here...truly an overlooked gem and much better than Recycler!!

Very disappointing album (as many before and after). What I always have to do is go back, way back into time: First Album, Rio Grande Mud and Tres hombres...maybe as old as their beards are long and maybe Iīm gettinīold, too. Canīt help it.

From: Propane Date: December 4, 2004 at 18:10
I agree with TomSawYa.There needs to be some older releases here for review, so maybe some of the younger dudes can check some of the b side stuff out. They were also known for those songs as well.

This is the last ZZ Top record that i can listen to from beginning to end. Besides a very few sporatic tunes over the last 16 years since "Recycler", there has not been a good album to get excited about, let alone from top to bottom. Not that this one is groundbreaking though because it does rehash what had already been done on "Eliminator" & "Afterburner". Maybe that's why it still has charm after all these years.

only five comments before 2004!what a surprise for this exceptional record.this album is the perfect follow up to "eliminator" and "afterburner".a superb mix of southern rock, blues and hard rock.like their two previous efforts this cd is a must have, a real jewel ,to all serious hard rock fan on this earth.

From: 123charpenay Date: June 29, 2013 at 15:43
on "eliminator" "afterburner" and "recycler" it s very simplenly hits,only killer songs.these three jewels will stay in the history of the hard rock n roll music.pleasure guaranted for a maximum of pleasure with these three masterpieces.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 22, 2015 at 18:55
This album didn't excite me up at all...tracks 1,3,7 & 10 are fine ones with that tyoical ZZ Top sound that they did back in mid/late 80's...not a bad one at all but it should have been a better one IMHO.80/100

I love "Concrete and Steel." one of my all time favorite ZZ Top Songs.
