#294 ZZ Top – Tres Hombres

ZZ Top is one of the bands that I heard of in the 80s. They had a hit song or two on MTV. Tres Hombres is one of two albums they have on this list. The other album is in the 80s. I was never a fan that would listen to an album so this is the first time.

The album beings with the popular song “Waitin’ for the Bus“. This sound is southern rock and it is sexy. I am not sure why, but it has a special beat that makes you move your body. I can hear the influence these songs have had on other bands, such as Van Halen.

Other songs to check out: “La Grange“, “Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers“, “Hot, Blue and Righteous“, and “Have You Heard?“. The whole album is easy to listen to in a sitting.

Other than the 80s songs from them, I have no connection to ZZ Top. I do not have a story that goes with them. They are really talented and I should have checked them out sooner. I think this album is surprisingly good. 8.5/10.
