ZZ Top: Billy Gibbons (vocals, guitar); Dusty Hill (vocals, bass); Frank Beard (drums).ZZ Top: Billy Gibbons (vocals, guitar); Dusty Hill (vocals, bass guitar); Frank Beard (drums).After scoring its biggest hit ever with its eighth release, 1983's polished ELIMINATOR, ZZ Top decided to continue in the same mainstream direction for its next release two years later, AFTERBURNER. Another big hit for the band, the album did spawn several hits, yet wasn't as strong overall as its predecessor.It was impossible to avoid the following ZZ hits on either MTV or radio between 1985-'86--the ballad "Rough Boy" (which innovative video was based on AFTERBURNER's space-age cover art), the synth stomper "Velcro Fly," the melodic "Sleeping Bag," or the rocking "Stages." 15 years after the band's debut release, AFTERBURNER found ZZ Top more popular than ever.

This album did great sales wise but i beleive it was bécasse of eliminator. Sleeping bag,stages,and velcro Fly are good but can't reach heights set by Sharp dressed Man or legs. Stil' a good listen all the way through.

Another smash for them.
A nice follow up to their wildly successful "eliminator" two years earlier. That album and the videos along with this one and its videos made these guys a household name. You should have both of these in your collection.
