Picks and Pans Review: Eliminator
The Texas trio made a big noise in the early '70s with its blues and R&B-flavored hard-rock sound. Eliminator, their ninth LP, conspicuously lacks any of the band's former hot sauce and Southern stomp. The playing and production here are competent and the music is loud, hard and fast, but without the down-home seasoning that first made it a success, ZZ Top's sound is an undistinguished kind of heavy metal hash. Count Eliminator out.
