When it came time for a follow-up to ZZ Top's enormous success Eliminator, the band made the astute business decision to give their new fans more of the same—more keyboards, more drum machines, more songs with even more euphemisms for sexual activity. And then when they were done with that, they added more keyboards.

This was definitely not your uncle's ZZ Top—the guys they imagined as blues-bustin’ rodeo escapees, chugging around the dusty back roads of Texas’ roadhouse circuit, soaked in mescal, tuned in to border radio, and exhaling barbeque smoke. Afterburner presented ZZ Top as dystopian blade runners, ascending to the sterile environs of their space compound instead of running around the desert killin' varmints.

They still manage to rock, though; they come out swinging with "Sleeping Bag," which has enough Billy Gibbons attitude to compensate for the fact that there are more artificial sounds on the track than on any given Depeche Mode record, perhaps on all given Depeche Mode records.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
