If I Could Only Flag Her Down - ZZ Top - Eliminator (CD, Album)

It was their willingness to experiment, to drink new blood, that saved them and maybe everybody else from the gnawing abyss of irrelevance. The band had already rollercoastered from famine to feast once or twice in their ten plus years of existence by the time they recorded their groundbreaking El Loco album in , so it was certainly a risk to pepper that record with bubbling synthesizers, especially when you consider their core constituency of hard-rocking boogie-children.

But it worked. Everything old was new again. Emboldened, two years later the band returned with their contemporary masterpiece. Eliminator was El Loco turned to 11, the perfect storm of sound and vision. It yielded hit after hit, both on the radio and on MTV, and catapulted the unlikely power-trio into superstardom. But how good was it, really? Keep in mind we are no longer bombarded with the music video for Legs seventeen thousand times a day, and absence often makes the heart grow fonder.

The first and third songs on any given album are generally the best. It still scraped the top 20 at the time, but has not endured as a Classic Rock radio staple. This might not even be that bad if it was on another album. But it is almost comically out of place on what is essentially a futuristic pop-metal record.
