0793. ZZ Top
Ten years and 268 albums on the list later, ZZ Top are back with both a new style and a (slightly) better lyrical content. Instead of buying women, this time around it seems more like they're actually just in it for women with loose morals and an appetite for the rock'n'roll lifestyle.
As for the new style, the trio now consisted of three beards as
the guitarist and bassist had gone into the desert or something
for a year and let their follicles frolic into their now trademark
length, and of course: the drummer's surname is Beard.
Cue dad jokes all night long.
Not only that, they also now had their custom Ford coupe after which the album's named (and which also graces this and a couple of more album covers).
As for the music, it's more synthesizers than before, and thus a more Eighties' sound, but for ZZ Top this isn't bad at all. And Billy Gibbons sure can play that guitar worth a damn.
With hits like Gimme All Your Lovin' and Sharp Dressed Man (and, well, Legs too) being probably their best known songs it's of course their biggest album to date and a modern boogie rock classic. Too bad there's tracks like Bad Girl and Thug that wrecks the party.
