ZZ Top (Recycler) 1990





Of the 'resurgence' Trilogy of ZZ Top, Recycler is more of the same with keeping in style with both Eliminator and Afterburner. But what those albums offered, on Recycler there really isn't any hits to be found at all. Sure, you can say that Doubleback was a "hit" because it got a major push from the Back To The Future III Soundtrack and appearance in the movie. This isn't a bad album by any stretch. It's ZZ Top, so you know exactly what you are getting. It's just the lack of hit songs that make this feel very lightweight by comparison.

I dig the album but it's probably my least listened too one at that, in spite of a couple of cool tracks. This album more or less was the last one that I would get of ZZ Top and with hardly any video airplay on MTV at the time....they receded from my eyes. I would listen to them over the years and check out new songs off and on. But I never was moved to the point of wanting to get another ZZ Top album like I did with this Trilogy of albums.
