4.0 out of 5 stars Probably worth it July 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
3.v is probably Zebra's best album, although it's hard to go wrong with their first album. What's wrong with this collection is the 2nd album, No Tellin' Lies. Mostly made up of older material, it's not a great album. There are 2 or 3 good tracks on No Tellin' Lies. The best one is Bears.
That said, 3.V is practically flawless. While the first album was a nice hard rock (probably heavy metal at the time) with nice hooks, and the 2nd was an ok hard rock album with few hooks, 3.v is Zebra reborn as a hard rocking pop outfit.
The album went absolutely nowhere, but after 16 years, the album holds up very nicely.
Given the price of this set, it's well worth the purchase, though you might want to rip it, and remove some of NTL's weaker tracks.
4.5 stars for 3.v
2.5 stars for NTL

5.0 out of 5 stars I think it will "affect" more than "effect" ... August 12, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm not sure how this 1986 album could be an indicator of "lameness to come" since it still stands as the latest studio effort from Zebra. Reportedly, a new record is on the way early in 2003. Now THAT's a hiatus.
3.V is a stunning example of where melodic hard rock COULD have been at the end of the 1980s. There are too many influences to count that pop out of the songs on this disk: Zeppelin, Beatles, 80s metal, Yes, even a jazzy riff or two. It's great fun and even better turned up loud.
If you like Zep, Asia, Rush, The Flower Kings or any bands of that nature, check out Zebra. They will not disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Had to counteract that 1 star review... July 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't usually rate these things but this product is being unfairly moved down by the 1-star rater. It's true that "No Tellin Lies" is an average album, but "3.V" is simply perfect, and one of the most overlooked creations of the 80's. Anyone who likes hard, melodic rock would find it essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zebra's "3.V" March 6, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is a definate must for any fan of Zebra. It represented the third of their releases, but only the first directly produced by guitarist Randy Jackson. As such, it displays more distinctly the full intensity of the band. Although it did not recieve the air play of their first album, its production values greatly outshine anything they had produced to this point, and in my humble opinion, remains their greatest effort to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love These Two-For's! July 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This one that features their 2nd and 3rd albums, and the price is nice, and it was smart to leave them at a low price, I can't see the average person taking a chance if this was 20 bucks, can you? And I can get the song again "You're Only Losing Your Heart" (on 3.V), I used to have the cassette of 3.V, but it is long gone. I do have "In Black and White", and many of the songs here are on that one also, along with quite a few from the debut, but Zebra doesn't have a huge official catalog; so it's not really that difficult with the price of these to be a completist for the bands music in this case.

The band has always intrigued me in the style of the singer, his high pitched sound, along with a hard rock sound and melody also seems to be the late 70's meeting an early 80's alternative rock sound. It may not be an complex and progressive as a band like Rush, or Yes, but they seemed to have carved out a niche in the rock world over the years. You don't hear alot of people say that Zebra is one of their favorite bands, but perhaps they need to take another listen to this classic stuff and rethink it?

Zebra is a band to me that really I like just about every one of their songs. Probably the only song I don't like and skip each time is the "La-La Song", and it still bothers me that that one is on the greatest hits instead of "You're Only Losing Your Heart".

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing band, great album February 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Zebra is an amazing rock/pop band from the 80s that still performs down here in south Louisiana. I saw them the other night at one of their 30th anniversary bashes. This album is their best studio album, though I believe their live album is better. On one track, Zebra is a pop band performing synthesized music with complicated chord progressions; on the next track, they are a guitar-driven hard rock band. Randy Jackson is a very gifted songwriter. In addition, his guitar playing is awesome, and his vocals soar. With bassist/keyboardist Guy and drummer Felix, they form one of the most talented trios in rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zebra's third one a personal, reflective work
This album is very, very good. The only thing that holds this one back, I think, from popular acclaim is what seems to be over-production. Read more
