Selling out doesn't mean putting crap out.

Eliminator was the first tape I ever bought back when I was BitterCYoung. Perfect for it's time and place, mixed classic blues rock and shuffle with the technological and stylistic shifts music was making at the time. These Tres Hombres were THE coolest dudes on eMpTy-Vee. I even sported the ZZ key chain for a good 20+ years thanks to the vid for "Gimme All Your Loving"... never did score the bad ass hot rod, though. So adios to Dusty Hill, thanks for some great bass lines and anchoring the Top. All you beer drinkers and hell raisers out there know what to do.

'Eliminator' isn't necessarily a bad album, its just that it was a radical shift from the hard-hitting rockier edge of the late 70's to a sound much supported by AOR influences and Synthesisers. That said, 'Gimme all your lovin'' prove the band's much renowned credibility as a really fun rock band to listen to. Some songs here can teeter on the monotonous side a bit, but its clear the 80's had a great influence over ZZ top.
