God & Guns Is Great!

Lynyrd Skynyrds new CD God & Guns carries on their great Southern Rock tradition, although they have continued to update their sound. The guitars may have a bit more of a heavy metal crunch these days, but Skynyrd continues to channel their country/blues roots to dramatic effect. While lacking a track as powerful as the anthems they cranked out in their heyday (sorry, no Freebird here!), this CD serves up the guitar swagger and good ol' boy point of view the fans have come to know and love. Standouts include the rousing opener "Still Unbroken", the jaunty "Southern Ways" (shades of Sweet Home Alalabama in spots), the spooky "FLOYD" featuring Rob Zombie, and the twin tributes to fallen comrades Ean Evans (Storm) and Billy Powell (Gifted Hands) that end the proceedings. I'll be playing this one in my pickup for a long time to come!!!
