The one that hurts the most is Lynyrd Skynyrd. Over the past twenty years I have listened to one of my all time favorite groups, one whose music was often misunderstood, turn into some cheap version of itself. I thought it couldn't get worse than their last album God & Guns (Ronnie must be rollin' in his grave over that one - those old songs like Saturday Night Special were anti-gun!). It's a Synyrrrrd Naaaation! Uh, nope.
You want to keep making music? Fine with me, just change the name. This album has nothing to do with what was once America's greatest Rock & Roll band. No southern fried hippies here...just Tea Party anthems and songs about chicks and sweet tea.
Maybe I'm too critical. I might be missing the point. I don't think so but maybe. Decide for your self.New Skynyrd
For me the the choice is easy. I'll go back to Second Helping or One More From The Road for my Southern Rock fix. Nothing to hear here...move along.
