The old Texan proverb that "you find the best frozen margaritas in the oldest glasses" certainly applies to this third solo album by Billy Gibbons. Having swerved between genres with The Big Bad Blues (2018) and Perfectamundo (2015), the brains behind ZZ Top has gone back to basics with Hardware, which sounds like a personal jukebox of his own creation. It’s a gleaming machine that contains everything that inspired his music since the bearded trio's beginnings in 1971: blues, hard rock, country rock and even surf music. This is all original material, with the exception of a cover of the Texas Tornados' Hey Baby, Que Paso. These songs have been written with the help of old accomplices like the former Guns'N'Roses drummer Matt Sorum, guitarist Austin Hanks, Mike Fiorentino, Chad Shlosser and, on Stackin' Bones, the young sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell from the duo Larkin Poe.

From the first riffs of My Lucky Card, we are treated to a full-strength Gibbons performance, with typically dirty Texan blues rock, implacable as the desert sun that beats down on Palm Springs where Hardware was recorded. The flawless Telecaster solo on Vagabond Man underscores the power of this sound: it has been heard a thousand times before, but Billy Gibbons gives it a uniquely human touch. And whether you prefer the boogie anthem La Grange (1973) or the radio hit Gimme All Your Lovin' (1983), on this record the ZZ Top frontman is really pandering to all the fans, past and present, of his timeless rock'n'roll. This album is classic, solid, and unmistakable. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

The Best of Neil Young Live

Long ago it became common knowledge that Neil Young—a fan of live albums, having released eight in his solo career since 1973—was building a massive tape library of shows. Like Bob Dylan before him (and Bruce Springsteen after), Young rode herd on a constantly expanding recording library that he first began talking about exploiting in the 1980s.

The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.
