Flyin’ High – ZZ Top finally gets new material out

ZZ Top – Flying High

I’ve been waiting the return of ZZ Top for years now… Finally there is a new material you can listen:

ZZ Top – Flying High

My short review: Flyin’ High starts pretty strong, and it has the ZZ Top vibe from the very first notes, but the chorus is way too radio friendly to my ears. Hopefully it’s the only radio friendly song, and rest of the album is dirty old blues… Some might say that Seasick Steve has stolen their their mojo.

From Wikipedia: “In July 2008, the band announced they have signed with producer Rick Rubin and are recording a new album. Rubin will be producing the next album, and it has been reported that the band will be aiming to move back to their pre-80s La Grange sound”
