Top Customer Reviews
Well, a month or so ago I caught the video for "Red, White & Blue" on GAC (Great American Country), the country music video channel. I was immediately impressed. It didn't top the early material but I thought vocalist Johnny Van Zant was actually pretty good and the lyrics were patriotic in nature. I dug it right away.
That song alone got my attention ... enough to get me to pick up "Vicious Cycle." Well folks, it's an excellent album. The opening track, "That's How I Like It" is a working class rocker while "Dead Man Walkin'" takes a look at justice and the death penalty. The guitar work here really impressed me. Gary Rossington, Rickey Medlocke and Hughie Thomasson lay it on thick and heavy at times, while mellowing out on other tracks like "Life's Lessons."
Like others here, I wasn't too impressed with the remake of "Gimme Back My Bullets," featuring redneck rapper Kid Rock. It's an interesting version, but I would've left it for some future B-sides collection.
The best song on the album in my opinion is "Life's Lessons", the longest song at about 6 minutes. It's a great balland and is placed perfectly as the second to last song on the album. (I don't count Kid Rock's "gimme back my bullets" as a track, that shouldn't have been included on the CD.) Most of the songs are around 5 minutes long, which gives a classic feel because you rarely see long songs these days. I think the album is one of the best of the last 15 years. It deserves to be known. If you're hesitant to give the new Skynyrd a shot, just go ahead and by this album. You'll be pleasanly surprised.

Lynyrd Skynyrd "Vicious Cycle" is one of the best CD's released in many years. Anyone who has a taste for great musicians playing "Real Music" needs this one! Read morePublished on June 30 2005
Boy this CD was obnoxious, Red, White and Blue clearly has 'Skynyrd' sucking up to mindless 'patriotic' rednecks, though Clear Channel's storm troopers played the heck of it. Read morePublished on May 9 2004 by Bob Frazier
Skynyrd's latest starts out with a bang and then turns into a whimper. The first five songs on "Vicious Cycle" are solid tunes but then it turns into what sounds like a subpar Van... Read morePublished on March 14 2004 by Brian E. Burgess
From song one to song fifteen this CD kicked my ass like it hasn't been done since the day southern rock fell from the sky decades ago. Read morePublished on Jan. 23 2004 by Ken Shelton
