This *** is so good I write this on my phone. This is hot ass Texas heat here, bluesy like only three white dudes from Texas can be. Before the matching outfits and MTV *** (which still rocks eliminator packs a punch in a different way) there was this hard slab of Texas steak, fine ass meat from the special kind of Texas cow only found in a goddamn state like Tecas ZZ Top outdo themselves here and throw down a taste of ***in hard goddamn blues. Groovy and boogie too. Gibbons is master axe lord he is like gunslinger. If you've seen back to the future III you seen ZZ in their Wild West gear and the looks of those outfits sum up what tres hombres sound like - powerful and moving. While we all know hits like la grange, beer drinker and hell raisers, and one of the most powerful 1-2 punches in Rock waitin for the bus grooving the *** out leading into Jesus just left Chicago one of the most beer drinkin songs ever or anything any scenario at all. It's up there with heartbreaker living loving maid. But there is also the moving track hot blue and righteous still a drinking song but moody and reflective it forces the listener to examine ones life in between all the madness and partying hard that tree hombres also condones making album a double edged sword but in best way sense. ZZ top crafted in 74 the finest grilling on the deck getting wrecked album ever. ZZ top don't get much appreciation from the current generation of post- hardcore (hard snore!!!" Emo baby rockers but ask Ian macksye himsslf who once claimed tres hombres help him through a dark depression where the straight edge stallion himself pondered suicide it was the track move me on down the line that made Ian press on. Or ask morrissey who said tres hombres is his favorite album of all time. Grab some beer and enjoy

Great stuff. Gibbons' tone and playing is as good as Texas blues get. Their debut needs more love too.

"Beer Drinkers And Hell Raisers" is one hell of a jam.

Good call for review.

The whole of side 1 is ridiculous, masters of Sparks is one of the coolest songs ever, side 2 can hold a candle to anything as well, 70's Top is pretty awesome
