ZZ Top’s songs may not leave much room for interpretation, yet all the artists here manage to sound like themselves while serving up straightforward covers. Steven Tyler singing with Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, and Jonny Lang - play like the pampered millionaires they are, Andrew Stockdale shrieks Cheap Sunglasses as if he were saluting Jack White, Wyclef Jean taps into the new wave heart of Rough Boy, while Nickelback. and DAUGHTRY battle for the title of Guitar Center’s loudest.

Yet, even though the album features artists from such a broad range of genres, the renditions just seem a bit redundant. Nickelback‘s take on ‘Legs’ has a slightly heavier flavour than the original, yet nothing drastic enough to make it truly worthwhile, and Daughtry‘s ‘Waitin’ For The Bus/Jesus Just Left Chicago’ is just plain dull. s (featuring Steven Tyler, Jonny Lang and Mick Fleetwood) take on ‘Sharp Dressed Man’ fails to ignite. Although, there are a couple of gems shattered throughout, which, if not save the record, do provide a welcome glimpse of dynamism. For a die hard ZZ Top fan, it may be worth looking into briefly. For anyone else, there is little of interest here. Written by Tony Bliss.
