Sharp Dressed Men: A Tribute to ZZ Top

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
This high-octane tribute to ZZ Top gives a group of top country artists the chance to offer rock 'n' roll props to the rowdy Texas trio, whose approach has helped shape the up-tempo sound of today's mainstream country. A medley of "Jesus Just Left Chicago/Waitin' for the Bus" allows Hank Williams Jr. to dip into the stomping blues-rock that he's favored on his own records. Hank III, meanwhile, comes out with both barrels blazing on "Fearless Boogie," which rocks without mercy and gains an edge via Hank's unsettling phased vocal. In "I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide," Dwight Yoakam melds Texas boogie with the hard edge of Bakersfield country to create the album's most memorable ...

This high-octane tribute to ZZ Top gives a group of top country artists the chance to offer rock 'n' roll props to the rowdy Texas trio, whose approach has helped shape the up-tempo sound of today's mainstream country. A medley of "Jesus Just Left Chicago/Waitin' for the Bus" allows Hank Williams Jr. to dip into the stomping blues-rock that he's favored on his own records. Hank III, meanwhile, comes out with both barrels blazing on "Fearless Boogie," which rocks without mercy and gains an edge via Hank's unsettling phased vocal. In "I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide," Dwight Yoakam melds Texas boogie with the hard edge of Bakersfield country to create the album's most memorable track. Willie Nelson transforms "She Loves My Automobile" into a jubilant western swing shuffle that would make Bob Wills smile. And Alan Jackson contributes the 12-bar blues of "Sure Got Cold After the Rain Fell," which he ultimately kicks into hoedown overdrive in a scintillating and seamless blues-country segue. Lonestar, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Phil Vassar, and Trace Adkins are among the other country stalwarts lending their hot hands to this top-notch tribute to everyone's favorite bearded band.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
It's an inspired idea, actually -- take a bunch of country artists, mainly contemporary country guys, and have them tackle ZZ Top's catalog of blues-rock ravers, and just see what happens. As it turns out, Sharp Dressed Men: A Tribute to ZZ Top turns out to be one of the best tribute albums in recent memory, crackling with energy and with just enough vivid reinterpretations to make it enjoyable for fans of either the artists involved or ZZ Top. What makes it work is that the roster of featured artists is so strong that they either put their identity on their chosen song, or they love the music so much, it turns into an energetic cover. Also, the songs are revealed to be sharply written, clever tunes that still sound good when performed by somebody else -- they still sound good removed from the fuzz-tone raunch that defines ZZ Top as a band. As it turns out, the songs are more than good enough to stand on their own, and acts like Brad Paisley, Hank Jr., Tracy Byrd, Dwight Yoakam, Willie Nelson, and Alan Jackson turn this into a surprisingly enjoyable, first-rate record.
