Precisely week ago I had the great pleasure of being in ZZ Top's concert when their brand new European tour started from Helsinki. The experience was most refreshing. It was nice to see a live performance of that lil' old band from Texas and witness with my own eyes that still after 30 years these blokes are going strong, doing fine and having the time of their life.
The very next day I bought "ZZ Top: Greatest hits" DVD because their original videos really wasn't that familiar to me yet. This is a good collection, no doubt, and every single hardcore ZZ fan will be thrilled. I haven't got any doubts about this one: their best and most stylish video is definitely the scifi-oriented "Rough boy". Another cool first-rate piece that rose up from the crowd was "Give it up" and "Velcro sky's" video was rather amusing too.
It seems that there are few repeating qualities that we can find in most of ZZ Top's video works. One is of course good-looking chicks and then there's the ZZ keychain. (Now I understand why the sold it in the concert!) However the truth is all of their videos aren't equally enjoyable.
I love the smash hits like "Gimme all your lovin'" and "Sharp dressed man", both undisputed rock classics, but the videos were unfortunately somewhat disappointing because the director tried to tell some kind of a dumb story during the song. Too old-fashioned, too 80's from 2002 point of view. Still, nice and amusing package of good music. I suggest you should check it out if you like the band. 8/10
