Performer Notes
  • ZZ Top: Billy F. Gibbons (vocals, guitar); Dusty Hill (vocals, bass); Frank Beard (vocals, drums).
  • Recorded at Charlatan's, Hollywood, California; Ardent Studios, Memphis, Tennessee; John's House Of Funk, Houston, Texas.
  • There are some things in America that you can count on year after year, like Coca-Cola, the Super Bowl and the latest ZZ Top album. RHYTHMEEN is no exception. On these 12 tunes Billy Gibbons, Frank Beard and Dusty Hill continue to do what they have always done best: making lowdown, swampy rock and roll with a monstrous guitar crunch.
  • As usual, the Topsters' sense of humor is in the forefront. Witness "Zipper Job," a rocking ode to sex-change operations, or the slow-grinding, bizarrely ominous "Vincent Price Blues." In fact, most of the tunes on RHYTHMEEN contain a good dose of the band's loopy, Texas-fried scamp sensibility. Dusty Hill's vocals retain their raw, morning-after-the-morning-after tequila hangover quality. And fans will be pleased to note that Gibbons' guitar work is as dirty and untamed as ever. On "Loaded" he reaches new depths of unwashed guitar glory; he sounds as if he's playing through a prehistoric garbage compactor.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (10/3/96, p.72) - 3 Stars - Good - "...RHYTHMEEN finds the power trio ditching the synth-pop thud of their '80s hits `Legs' and `Sharp Dressed Man.' Instead, [Billy] Gibbons, bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard evoke the roadhouse boogie of the earlier '70s stompers...that first brought them fame..."

Musician (11/96, p.88) - "Billy Gibbons' guitar is so low and sour that on certain notes it sounds like a basson or bass saxophone....a ZZ Top album that will rightly please the fans....Several guitar solos inspire awe and wonder and scrunched-up facial muscles..."
