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! It is simply "The Best of the Best"!

Having been a fan of their pre-plane crash material, I was always a little skeptical of Lynyrd Skynyrd's latest line up. Would they be able to live up to the early and mid-70's legacy? This is an important band and I wanted to make sure "Vicious Cycle" was worth the money. How can you top "Sweet Home Alabama" or "Gimme Three Steps"?
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.

I thought that the new Skynyrd stuff would suck... but when I saw them live last year they played three songs of their new albums, and to my surprise I really liked them. They played "Pick 'em Up", "That's How I Like It", and "Red White and Blue." Of coarse i liked the old stuff better, but I figured I'd give this new stuff a try. I was hesitant to buy the album but gave in, and I'm glad that i did. Although it can't be compared to the original Skynyrd stuff, it's still really good southern rock. It's a hell of a lot better then most of the crap that's out there today, and it should have gotten more radio play. It's heavier than original skynyrd sound, and puts a new twist on southern rock. Johny's voice sounds great on it, and they still have the 3-guitar-army-sound with great solos.
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.

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. Van Zant simply doesn't measure up to his brother, a very weak and off-key singer. Folks, the soul of that group is gone, rest their souls, and been replaced by opportunistic 4nd string family members whose writing is very poor. Call them what you want, but these clowns shouldn't be allowed to use the Skynryd name, the proud name of a once great southern rock band.

This CD is just simply great. It's the best album that Skynyrd has put out since the tragic plane crash. If you're a huge Lynyrd Skynyrd fan and have not heard this album, let me tell you, it's great! Be prepared because it's a little more "Punk" or "Hard Rock" than the original Skynyrd material, but it's still an awesome album. When I first got it, my favorites were "That's How I Like It", "Red White And Blue", and "Lucky Man". I just loved these songs so much that I couldn't find room for the others for awhile. But now, all of the others have grown on me. My other favorites are "Dead Man Walkin'", "Hell Or Heaven", "The Way", "Crawl" and "Life's Lessons". As another reviewer mentioned, I like the original version of "Gimme Back My Bullets" so much that I don't really need a remix, but that track sounds alright. Hopefully the previous reviewer has learned that you should check the tracklist on the back of a CD before buying it, instead of just assuming that it's a greatest hits album. This album is just great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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 Zant cd(think Brother To Brother). In fact Skynyrd could probably have hired studio musicians and got the same output on the last six or seven songs of this cd. You have three of the greatest southern rock guitarists of all time in this group(Rossington, Medlocke and Thomasson)yet their talents are rarely on display. Van Zant's singing is not bad on this cd but the song writing is weak at best. I love Skynyrd but this is one of their weakest efforts.
