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

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.

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.

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.

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".

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Of all the classic American melodic rock bands, I think Zebra is probably the most unfairly overlooked and underrated. They had this great Led Zeppelin meets Cheap Trick sound centered on Randy Jackson's (no not the American Idol guy) signature vocal style. The band's self-titled debut gets the most attention, but their later albums are just as impressive.

This great 2-on-1 reissue collects the band's second and third albums (1984's No Tellin' Lies and 1986's 3.V) on one CD for the price of a single disc. The individual albums were all but impossible to find on CD, so this reissue is a great deal.

If you're into the 80's melodic rock sound (Angel, Starz, Moxy, Journey, Styx, Foreigner, etc.) you definitely need to check out Zebra. The debut is the best starting point, but the No Tellin' Lies/3.V reissue is also a good choice.

NOTE: This reissue isn't always in circulation. Prior to the 2007 reissue, the 2001 edition was selling quite high on the secondary market. My recommendation is to grab this while it's still available at a normal retail price.

NOTE 2: The item description says that the albums have been remastered, but I don't think that is the case. There's no mention of remastering in the liner notes, and it really doesn't sound remastered to me. Then again, I'm not one of those audiophile types, so maybe I'm missing something.
