Overview

On their first album of original material since1996's RHYTHMEEN, the sharp-eared men of Texas update the mid '80s hit sound of ELIMINATOR ("Legs," "Gimme All Your Lovin'") and the tush-shaking Texas boogie 'n' blues they've always loved. That means sludging up Billy Gibbons' guitar until it crunches like Soundgarden or Alice In Chains and giving some of drummer Frank Beard's beats a distinctly '90s sheen. A little bit of tweaking goes a long way toward making this set of classic hard rockers sound oddly fresh. While the two-step jungle beat of the instrumental "Dreadmonboogaloo" and the aptly named "Beatbox," may shock a few old fans, ZZ will never stray too far from their Texas roadhouse roots. And the live workouts at the end of the record, most notably the scorching "Hey Mr. Millionaire" -- make it clear that, just like that woman in their classic song, this enduring band has got legs.
